A chilling insight into the mind of a killer. This book is not gore filled instead its a suspense filled thriller that you won't want to put down.
The suspense is not about who the killer is (that's made very clear early in the book), its focussed about how and if the newly formed Cold Case unit will catch him.
Thomas Ellis is a rapist and murderer committing evil acts for 55 years. He relishes his memories of his sickening deeds and readers will be infuriated at the way he exerts psychological torment upon the bereaved relatives.
Rosie Butler the lead detective's investigation seemed too pat - 55 years and no one thought to look for evidence in certain obvious areas (seriously!! and extremely unrealistic).
Sensitive readers: many LBGT scenes in the book. Rosie has a sexual relationship with her subordinate Petra Lewis. Their flirtation continues whilst working - this seems ethically gray.
