It is my absolute pleasure to be joining the blog tour for Keeper by Johana Gustawsson, the follow up to her brilliant novel, Block 46. That was one of my top reads of 2017 and although it is only April, I know that Keeper is going to be on my list for 2018 too. My thanks to Anne Cater of Random Things Tours for inviting me to join the tour. This was one I could in no way say no to. Let’s take a look what it is all about shall we.
About the Book
Whitechapel, 1888: London is bowed under Jack the Ripper’s reign of terror.
London, 2015: actress Julianne Bell is abducted in a case similar to the terrible Tower Hamlets murders of some ten years earlier, and harking back to the Ripper killings of a century before.
Falkenberg, Sweden, 2015: a woman’s body is found mutilated in a forest, her wounds identical to those of the Tower Hamlets victims. With the man arrested for the Tower Hamlets crimes already locked up, do the new killings mean he has a dangerous accomplice, or is a copy-cat serial killer on the loose?
Profiler Emily Roy and true-crime writer Alexis Castells again find themselves drawn into an intriguing case, with personal links that turn their world upside down. Following the highly acclaimed Block 46 and guaranteed to disturb and enthrall, Keeper is a breathless thriller from the new queen of French Noir.
