Two men are found dead in London’s Battersea Park. One of the bodies has been laid out like a crucifix – with his eyes removed and placed on his open palms.
Detective Inspector Grace Archer and her caustic DS, Harry Quinn, lead the investigation. But when more bodies turn up in a similar fashion, they find themselves in a race against time to find the sadistic killer.
The hunt leads them to Ladywell Playtower in Southeast London, the home to a religious commune lead by the enigmatic Aaron Cronin. Archer and Quinn suspect Cronin’s involvement but his alibis are watertight, and the truth seemingly buried. If Archer is to find the killer, she must first battle her way through religious fanatics, London gangsters – and her own demons . . .
This was a fantastic serial killer thriller that will keep you on the edge of your seat. It has a good pace to it, it keeps you engaged and makes you want to read on to find out what is going to happen. I read this book in the space of an afternoon, I felt compelled to find out who the killer was. I felt that this book was addictive and well written, It had the suspense and tension that I love reading with a thriller but it was also very twisted and creepy in other parts. You will never guess the ending and I was completely blown away. I look forward to reading more of David’s books in the future.
I received an ARC copy of this book for an honest review.
