I received a copy of this book from Boldwood Books via NetGalley in return for an honest review.
The Soul Killer is a noir crime thriller. The antagonist’s, first-person point of view, gives unique insights into an abusive childhood and motivation for subsequent crimes. Alongside this is a third-person perspective detail the police investigation.
There’s an authentic mix of psychological suspense and police procedural. A complex plot keeps its clues well hidden. DI Barton’s character continues to develop in a realistic and relatable way. This is the second in the series but reads as a standalone too.
The Soul Killer is riveting crime fiction with a twist of psychological suspense.
