"Three young women have been found brutally murdered in south London, their bodies discarded in plain view, the victims only yards away from help during each attack. And the murderer is getting bolder. Detective Inspector Mike Lockyer is the head of homicide on the South London police force, and with three bodies on his watch and a killer growing in confidence, he and DS Jane Bennett are frantically trying to find a link between these seemingly isolated incidents. Slowly, the case is also invading Lockyer's life outside the office, and the fact that his daughter matches the victim profile is putting a painful strain on their already fragile relationship. Meanwhile, Sarah Grainger is too afraid to leave her house. Once an outgoing London photographer, she started locking herself away once she became aware of a shadowy stalker following her every move. Now his actions are escalating. He's desperate to tell Sarah a secret...a secret that Lockyer needs to know"-- Provided by publisher.

if you love fast paced, tight knit thrillers, especially when they are delivered in serial form, then this is the book for you. It is the kind of story that you just can't put down.

The detectives on the Lewisham Murder Squad are all too human and flawed. The jaded Detective Inspector Mike Lockyer and his partner, the somewhat mysterious Jane Bennett have family issues that can lead them flagrantly to blur the lines while doggedly pursuing their suspects. The location is the gritty South East section of London and the crimes are serious. However, what makes this book, and the others in the series, stand out from many in the genre is the skillful writing of Clare Donoghue. Her ability to weave a twisty, complex tale, build suspense and keep you guessing to the end is outstanding. I especially appreciate her delicate depiction of what are horrific, sadistic crimes. She writes in a way that intrigues but does not overwhelm the senses.

I recommend this to readers who like a good police procedural, with interesting characters and back story that teases itself out over several books.
