When silence falls, who will hear their cries?
The body of a young girl is found dumped on the roadside on the outskirts of Edinburgh. When pathologists examine the remains, they make a gruesome discovery: the silhouette of a doll carved in the victim’s skin.
DCI Ava Turner and DI Luc Callanach are struggling to find leads in the case, until a doll made of skin is found nestled beside an abandoned baby.
After another young woman is found butchered, Luc and Ava realise the babydoll killer is playing a horrifying game. And it’s only a matter of time before he strikes again. Can they stop another victim from being silenced forever – or is it already too late?
Helen Fields books just keep getting better and better. This one was as chilling as all her other books are and just had me on the edge of my seat. This is book four and I would suggest (though you don’t have to) that you read the other books first to get to know the characters. This is a fast paced chilling thriller, one that you will not want to put down and now I want to read the next book.
I received an ARC copy of this book for an honest review.

There’s no easy way to die…
Unknown to DI Luc Callanach and the newly promoted DCI Ava Turner, a serial killer has Edinburgh firmly in his grip. The killer is taking his victims in the coldest, most calculating way possible – engineering slow and painful deaths by poison, with his victims entirely unaware of the drugs flooding their bloodstream until it’s too late.
But how do you catch a killer who hides in the shadows? A killer whose pleasure comes from watching pain from afar? Faced with their most difficult case yet, Callanach and Turner soon realise they face a seemingly impossible task…
This is a big book and it took me longer to read than I expected, however I did enjoy it. It was intense with lots of powerful characters. This is book 3 in the DI Callanach Thriller, though I have not read the previous books I had a sense of what had happened with the characters in the past. An intense thriller that will keep you on the edge of your seats.
I received a advanced copy of this book along with Luc’s favourite tipple which was a lovely red wine and also a horseshoe charm.
