(Detective Ruby Preston Book 2)
Close your eyes … Just pray you don’t wake up.
A killer stalks the streets of East London. All over the area, murdered young women are discovered, their bodies posed into a sickening recreation of fairytale princesses.
Detective Ruby Preston is determined to hunt down a disturbed individual who is using the women to realise his dark fantasies. But when body parts are found at the home of her lover, Nathan Crosby, Ruby is torn between her job and her heart.
Convinced that he is being framed, Ruby must catch the killer before Nathan becomes the number one suspect. But as more victims are found, it becomes harder to prove his innocence.
As Ruby starts to close in on the twisted individual, can she stop him before he strikes again? And how well does she really know the man she loves?
A terrifying, addictive serial killer thriller that will keep you on the edge of your seat, for readers of Angela Marsons, Peter James and Rachel Abbott.
My Review – 5 stars
Great writing and a fab plot.
I enjoyed the interaction with the Crosby family again, there was so much more in this book. Nathan’s brother isn’t a very nice chap, is he?
I was suspicious of everyone!
We didn’t hear much from Ruby’s family in this story, I thought there would be more about her mum and daughter.
The manner in which Ruby cared about potential victims showed a softer side, and I liked that.
The way the victim’s bodies were prepared and posed was horrific, and it seriously creeped me out. Grimm fairytales indeed. Only Caroline Mitchell’s sick mind could come up with this!! 🙂
The characters had really good depth, delving in to their pasts. And I never guessed anything, it took me by surprise every step of the way.
I can’t wait to see what Ruby Preston gets up to next time.
Caroline Mitchell creates some seriously dark and scary stuff
I cannot recommend all her work enough.
Thanks to the publishers, Bookouture, and NetGalley for the copy in return for an honest review.
