What did I think…

So D.I. Sara Ramsey is back for her third outing and this one is much more shocking than usual! The opening scenes were compelling reading and probably some of the creepiest that Mel has written as we watch a killer interact with his victim before murdering her. When Sara and her team find the woman’s body in an hotel room, she has no identification on her so it’s up to Sara to find out who she is and hopefully catch a killer before they can commit murder once again.

I do love this series and it’s Sara who keeps me coming back for more. Her private life is just as intriguing as the cases that she has to solve and here she has to make a shocking decision about her relationship. Her reasoning is in the right place but will her heart agree with her? It doesn’t help that her friend and colleague Carla is single now but they need to put their private lives aside to catch one of the most chilling psychopaths that Mel has ever created! Honestly, I had goosebumps as I watched this killing spree continue.

This was a quick read for me as I galloped through it, desperately needing answers to the questions I had. This series works so well as I have really taken to Sara and I have to say that I loved the last page! I’m already chomping at the bit for the next in the series to see what awaits our heroine there.

I really don’t know how Mel Comley manages to consistently bring out such high quality crime thrillers. Her ideas are always fresh and exciting which, when combined with her action packed plots, grabs her readers attention and makes them fans for life!

Another top read from Mel Comley!
