This novel is full of lots of grisly detail so beware if you are squeamish!
DI Sean Corrigan is not like other detectives. The terrible abuse he suffered in childhood hasn’t stopped him enjoying family life with his wife and two daughters, or pursuing an impressive career with South London’s Murder Investigation Unit. But it has left him with an uncanny ability to identify the darkness in others – a darkness he recognises still exists deep within his own psyche and battles to keep buried there.
A series of brutal killings leaves South London’s Murder Investigation Unit struggling to connect the crimes: no recognizable method; no forensic evidence; and the victims have nothing in common.
What I liked most about this novel was that you get to follow two strands to the story – one with DI Corrigan and the other – the killer. I thought I knew how it was going to end but I was pleasantly surprised by the twist! Great writing! I’ve now requested the second title in the series The Keeper
