This is the first book I’ve read by this author and really enjoyed it. the story started off with a bang and I was immediately captivated by the story. The character were enjoyable and also relatable. I like that the main character, Kate Marshall, is an independent woman with a career but also has her flaws and working to get those straight. It definitely made her character likable and relatable. This is the first book in this new series and I’m excited about other books being developed in this series. This book is also free with Kindle Unlimited. I give this book ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️.
Kate Marshall was a promising young police detective when she caught the notorious Nine Elms serial killer. But her greatest victory suddenly turned into a nightmare. Traumatized, betrayed, and publicly vilified for the shocking circumstances surrounding the cannibal murder case, Kate could only watch as her career ended in scandal. Fifteen years after those catastrophic events, Kate is still haunted by the unquiet ghosts of her troubled past. Now a lecturer at a small coastal English university, she finally has a chance to face them. A copycat killer has taken up the Nine Elms mantle, continuing the ghastly work of his idol. Enlisting her brilliant research assistant, Tristan Harper, Kate draws on her prodigious and long-neglected skills as an investigator to catch a new monster. Success promises redemption, but there’s much more on the line: Kate was the original killer’s intended fifth victim…and his successor means to finish the job.
