Publisher's Summary

When the victim seems perfect, is it the perfect crime? The gripping new serial killer thriller from the runaway best-selling author of Cry Baby.
On a bitterly cold winter's night, Liverpool is left stunned by a brutal murder in the grounds of the city's Anglican Cathedral. A killer is on the loose, driven by a chilling rage.
Put on the case, DS Nathan Cody is quickly stumped. Wherever he digs, the victim seems to be almost angelic - no one has a bad word to say, let alone a motive for such a violent murder.
And Cody has other things on his mind, too. The ghosts of his past are coming ever closer, and - still bearing the physical and mental scars - it's all he can do to hold on to his sanity.
And then the killer strikes again....

Scared me witless!!

I love Nathan Cody - he is someone I wish I knew personally. Great police officer, honest, lovable. His tormentors are terrifying and I am not kidding around. I listen on my way to/from work and had to pause the book a couple of times to take it in. Am happy it wasn't dark when I got to those parts! The narrator is top notch and I could understand every single word! He brings all the characters to life. Please hurry with the next installment!

Great book and awesome narration..

I love the storyline of these books but I just hate the ongoing story about the clowns and phone calls to Nathan Cody. I’m good with the serial killer so I don’t need to read about the hero’s failing mental health. At only 42% I was wondering if I was even going to finish this book. If it weren’t for the narration I probably wouldn’t have. I knew, however, if this was still a problem at the end of this book I wouldn’t be reading any more from this author.

At 71% we finished with another long episode of Cody and the clowns. They keep scaring him witless and he can’t even concentrate at work. He’s even alienated Megan. She didn’t want a thing to do with him.

I mean, really? Who wants a hero with mental problems? First in A Tapping at My Door and now it continues in this book, with no end in sight? As much as I enjoyed the serial killer stories in these two books I’m completely done. I’ll make up my own ending, rather than think about Cody being on the verge of insanity in every book, and not knowing when the next part of the story is going to be published.

I’m rating this book on the serial killer part ONLY. The latter part of this review was my own personal rant about the lousy way this was written, as far as Cody was concerned.

The story was very good and very exciting and I love that you have no idea who the killer is until near the end. And throughout the book I felt so sorry for him. It was so hard to read his story and I could see why his head was so screwed up. What a dysfunctional family that was.

He killed three women, all the while killing one woman in particular, but never having the nerve to kill THAT one. The solving of the case was taken away from with Cody’s mental problems.

As to the narration: Phenomenal. Jonathan Keeble gets better with every book he reads. His emotions are just incredible.
