Now I will be perfectly honest – a confession if you will – it has been a wee while since I listened to this book on audio. Even longer since I won a physical copy of the book early last year. I had every intention of publishing my review before Christmas but never quite made it. As I was invited to join the blog tour for the latest release in the series, Perfect Death, it seemed the perfect opportunity (no pun intended) to finally sit down and draft that review and to shufty book two, Perfect Prey up my list too. I’ll be sharing my thoughts on the book with you all in just a moment, after all it’s had a three month gestation period already – what is a few seconds more? First, lets take a look at what this is all about.
The Official Book Blurb
On a remote Highland mountain, the body of Elaine Buxton is burning. All that will be left to identify the respected lawyer are her teeth and a fragment of clothing.
In the concealed back room of a house in Edinburgh, the real Elaine Buxton screams into the darkness…
Detective Inspector Luc Callanach has barely set foot in his new office when Elaine’s missing persons case is escalated to a murder investigation. Having left behind a promising career at Interpol, he’s eager to prove himself to his new team. But Edinburgh, he discovers, is a long way from Lyon, and Elaine’s killer has covered his tracks with meticulous care.
It’s not long before another successful woman is abducted from her doorstep, and Callanach finds himself in a race against the clock. Or so he believes … The real fate of the women will prove more twisted than he could have ever imagined.
Fans of Angela Marson, Mark Billingham and M. J. Aldridge will be gripped by this chilling journey into the mind of a troubled killer.
