About the Book
A DI Amy Winter Thriller – Book 5
WHEN THE HUNTER BECOMES THE HUNTED…
DI Amy Winter faces her toughest case yet as a serial killer couple kidnap and hunt their prey. After capture, the victims are released from an unknown location each day. But freedom does not come easily as the victim’s injuries become more severe, and if they haven’t escaped by day four, they won’t live to see the fifth.
At five months pregnant, Amy is feeling backed into a corner as the father of her child, DCI Donovan, urges her to share the news. But Amy doesn’t want to be treated differently by her team, much less lose their respect when they discover she’s in a relationship with her DCI. When a call comes in from the killer asking to meet Amy, Donovan intercepts and sends a decoy in her place. But while officers are concentrating on the decoy, Amy is kidnapped from outside her flat. She is the next victim, and the countdown begins.
After being bundled into the back of a van and driven to a desolate woodland, Amy’s heart sinks in her chest as she realises the killers have no intention of playing fair.
DCI Donovan is distraught as he discovers Amy is missing. When his team receives a taunting video, he is left in no doubt of the danger Amy and his unborn child are in. He must pull himself together to hunt the killer down. But with no clues and no location, there is only one person with intimate knowledge of how a killer’s mind works. Lillian Grimes – Amy’s serial killer mother. But can he persuade her to help him in time? As the days progress, Amy’s injuries grow more severe, and her team are locked in a desperate race against time.
Can be read as a stand-alone.
A compulsive page-turner that will have your heart hammering in your chest and leave you absolutely breathless when you discover the shocking final twist. If you’re a fan of Angela Marsons, Mel Sherratt, LJ Ross, and Rachel McLean, you’ll love In Cold Blood.
I absolutely adore the Amy Winter Series.
Summing this book up, all I can say is ‘just read the whole series’.
Amy’s team are close-knit and it’s been brilliant getting to know them over time.
When Amy is taken it was quite heart in the mouth stuff at times. A real page turner that I couldn’t put down.
The Grimes family give me the creeps, and it continues to feature in this book. The ongoing saga with her real mother carries on, Lillian is a truly twisted character.
Many thanks to the author for the early copy in which I give my honest opinion.
