The Blurb

On a remote Highland mountain, the body of Elaine Buxton is burning. All that will be left to identify the respected lawyer are her teeth and a fragment of clothing.

In the concealed back room of a house in Edinburgh, the real Elaine Buxton screams into the darkness…

Detective Inspector Luc Callanach has barely set foot in his new office when Elaine’s missing persons case is escalated to a murder investigation. Having left behind a promising career at Interpol, he’s eager to prove himself to his new team. But Edinburgh, he discovers, is a long way from Lyon, and Elaine’s killer has covered his tracks with meticulous care.

It’s not long before another successful woman is abducted from her doorstep, and Callanach finds himself in a race against the clock. Or so he believes … The real fate of the women will prove more twisted than he could have ever imagined.

My Thoughts

My 5 star reading streak continues.

Perfect Remains is near enough a perfect read. I loved it. At first I didnt really take to DI Callanach but the more I read and with the Introduction of Ava it got better and better. The story is told in alternating chapters from the viewpoint of DI Callanach and the Creepy and Evil Dr King. As the story unfolds we find out more of Callanachs past and what has lead him to leave Interpol and relocate to Scotland. The book moves at a good pace and we dont get bogged down with superfluous background of any of the characters. Although we know who has done what the tension in the book is still palpable and there were a few twists that left me speechless.

A masterclass in how to write a Thriller.
