An Impossible Crime Scene
A wealthy woman is found brutally murdered in the locked fortress of her London mansion. Surrounding her are four mysterious objects, including a book on forensics by Dr Laughton Rees.
An Inescapable Past
As a teenager, Laughton’s life was destroyed after witnessing her mother’s brutal murder. Now a mother herself and forensic analyst, she is an expert on how to read crime scenes – but never works live cases.
An Uncatchable Killer
Pressured by the lead detective to help with the investigation, Laughton begins to realise that the objects left by the body are not just about the victim, they’re also about her. Her childhood was destroyed by one killer. Now she must catch another before her daughter’s is destroyed too.
This was an exceptionally brilliant thriller that had me feeling as though my heart was in my mouth the whole time wondering what was going to happen and the anticipation that builds through this book was terrific. This story is a murder mystery at it’s finest, also the procedurals were most interesting and I found out things I never knew. There are two stories running alongside each other and when we see them intertwine, the story takes a dramatic turn that kept me hooked till the end. This is a superb and riveting story that you won’t want to put down. I cannot wait to read more by Simon.
I received an ARC copy of this book for an honest review.
