NetGalley review (Guest Review) - 04 Nov, 2021
Jersey Police Chief Sarah Braintree receives a top award for police services just as a killer strikes, leaving notes and clues for Sarah. This seems personal to the killer, striking in quick succession. The clues and riddles make no sense initially and the body count rises. Soon the link is made, Sarah and the team make the deadly connections.
A quick paced enjoyable book. Stand alone and you got to know the characters quickly, sympathising with Sarah’s blight. I will certainly be looking to read more from Colin Wade.
