My Review – 5 stars
Great writing and a fab plot.
Caroline Mitchell is one of those authors that goes to the top of my reading pile. Always fast-paced and very clever. I found it exciting in a dark way, I couldn’t stop reading.
Talk about going out with a bang as the series ends with this book. I’m really sad about this as I’ve really taken to Ruby Preston and her boyfriend Nathan. I love her team too.
Ruby’s meetings with Mason Gatley, notorious Lonely Hearts Killer, really freaked me out as they got under each other’s skin. Is there a copycat killer out there? How do they know the details of Gatley’s killings? He’s been in prison for ten years and some of the details have never been in the public domain.
It kept me guessing, even when the killer was revealed there was another whammy! I never guessed that one.
Caroline Mitchell creates some seriously dark and scary stuff. And the ring finger clue was horrific….but at least they cauterised, urgh.
I cannot recommend all her work enough.
Thanks to the publishers, Bookouture, and NetGalley for the copy in return for an honest review.

About the book
(Detective Ruby Preston #3)
To catch a killer, you must first think like one…
A killer is playing a twisted game of life or death with his victims. After he captures them, a countdown begins. He marks the time by sending clues to the whereabouts of the women he has taken in three disturbing images: alive, tortured, dead.
In a race against the clock, East London Detective Ruby Preston must play the killer’s terrifying murder game and decipher the clues before more women die.
But this isn’t the first time the police have seen such a sickening crime. The notorious Lonely Hearts Killer, Mason Gatley, was put behind bars ten years ago for murdering six women in exactly the same chilling way. Desperate for more information, Ruby asks her gangster boyfriend, Nathan Crosby, to set up a dangerous meeting to allow her to see into the twisted mind of a murderer.
But the closer Ruby grows to the dark and charming Mason Gatley, the more worried her team becomes. Is he really helping her catch the killer? Or is he lining her up to be his next victim?
Fans of Angela Marsons, Rachel Abbott and Peter James will be hooked by this dark and utterly disturbing thriller, packed with twists until the final page.
