Terrifyingly authentic, London-set debut crime novel with a psychological edge, by an ex-Met detective. Perfect for fans of Mark Billingham, Peter James and Stuart MacBride.

DI Sean Corrigan is not like other detectives. The terrible abuse he suffered in childhood hasn’t stopped him enjoying family life with his wife and two daughters, or pursuing an impressive career with South London’s Murder Investigation Unit. But it has left him with an uncanny ability to identify the darkness in others – a darkness he recognizes still exists deep within his own psyche and battles to keep buried there. Now Sean’s on the trail of the most dangerous killer he’s ever encountered. The perpetrator has no recognizable MO, leaves no forensic evidence and his victims have nothing in common. But Sean knows they were all murdered by the same man. Now all he has to do is find the evidence, convince his bosses and stop the killing …before his adversary gets too close to home…

My Thoughts:

Early in this book we walk through the crime with the murderer as he kills a young man named Daniel Graydon who was a gay man who charged his clients for sexual services.  Next we get meet D. I Sean Corrigan who has this ability to know what the killer thinks and how he killed his victim.  All clues lead to one killer, but Corrigan is positive that their suspect has committed crimes before.  Even though his record appears squeaky clean Corrigan’s gut says there is more to this than meets the eye.

This book takes place in South London, which has different lingo but still a great story with fabulous characters and makes you wonder to what extent will Corrigan and his team go to get their bad guy.  This book was full of action and a big case of cat and mouse chase.  This book would be great for anyone who loves James Patterson’s Private series or British based crime books.  Definitely a great read and really entertaining.  I loved it.
