~Review by Laura~
I received a copy of this book in exchange for an honest review. Dr. Clare Hart is a journalist and part time profiler. She is currently working on an investigation piece on human trafficking. When a woman is found murdered, the police ask for her assistance in finding the killer. For Clare it means revisiting things in her past she would rather forget. Things start happening that make Clare think her investigation could be linked to the murder. Is there a killer playing a sick games with Clare or is it the people she is investigating?
This story was a little slow going for me at first. I didn’t realize it was part of a series but it didn’t seem vital that I had read the other ones. This is a dark read and may not be for everyone. It does contain violence against women. I did enjoy the story as it had suspense and kept me wanting to read more. I will be checking out the other books! I give this 4 books
