~ Review by Laura ~
*I received a copy of this book in exchange for an honest review*
DCI Kate Daniels is working on a case. Two bodies were found on a beach and now she has to work on identifying the victims. She has slim to go on. Emily McCann is a resident psychologist at the prison where a sex offender, Walter Fearon is doing time. It is soon clear that Walter is obsessed with Emily and has become more dangerous since being incarcerated. As Kate gets further into her investigation, Emily’s daughter disappears and she is sure something has happened to her. Could the two be related or does Walter have someone helping him on the outside?
A very enjoyable read. It took awhile for the story to get going but once it did I couldn’t put it down. The author did a great job of developing the characters and I found myself feeling like I personally knew them. This book is definitely a ride and I honestly didn’t know who done it and was happy that I didn’t figure it out. It’s nice to simply read a book and enjoy the ride. I would definitely read the next book if there is one. I give this 5 books.
