I received a copy of this book from the author in return for and honest review.
This is a compelling and well-plotted detective mystery with psychological suspense and police procedural elements that make it an addictive read.
Dr Harrison Lane has a mysterious and unusual past which facilitates his role as head of the Metropolitan Police’s Ritualistic Behavioural Crimes Unit. Some consider him a little strange and lacking in social skills, but his undoubted profiling knowledge and insight into the criminal mind draw respect from all who work with him.
The discovery of a young boy’s body and a subsequent abduction involves Harrison in a crime where the clock is ticking to save the young victim. He is a likeable character who empathises with the victims and puts his safety at risk for the sake of the victims. The police team dynamic is realistic and adds to the authenticity. The investigation is logical and immerses the reader in the story.
An intense and satisfying conclusion, which leaves clues to Harrison’s past to be answered at a later date.
An exciting crime mystery with an engaging protagonist.
