You can cover up the truth, but every murder leaves a trail…
The rain was relentless. It stung Ruth Prendergast’s face as she dashed towards her house, desperate to escape the cold and settle down for an early night. But upon entering her bedroom, she finds a man, lying on her bed – a knife buried in his chest.
When Detective Isabel Blood and her sergeant arrive on the scene, Ruth claims she’s never laid eyes on the victim before. But with no sign of a break-in, how did the killer gain access to the house?
Then Ruth disappears, leaving Isabel and her team to fear the worst. Has their lead suspect escaped, or is Ruth in danger herself?
Forensic evidence at the crime scene is sparse, and it’s proving impossible for Isabel to make a breakthrough. With Ruth still missing, time is running out.
But how can you catch a killer that doesn’t leave a trace?
This was such a brilliant whodunit thriller that I didn’t want to put down. I picked it up in the morning and by lunchtime I was finished. I liked the idea of the story and the police procedural really had me intrigued. I liked getting to know Isabel Blood the Detective and finding out a bit about her, I reckon the series is going to be very popular. When Ruth gets home to find a man dead in her bed, the question on her lips is who is he and what was he doing there? she doesn’t know him, but when the police start to investigate Ruth goes missing but why? can Detective Isabel Blood work out what went on here and where Ruth has gone? It had a gripping pace the whole way through and is full of interesting characters and lots of suspense. You never really know who to trust. This is Jane’s first book and I cannot wait to read the next one as this one was incredible.
I received an ARC copy of this book for an honest review.
