You can’t escape him.
He abducts lone joggers and forces them to run for their lives. When he catches them, he pulls out his blade…
Now he’s locked away and will be in prison for years. They call him a psychopath, a murderer, the ‘Woodcutter Killer’.
But what if you just found out you’re supposed to call him father?
I received a copy of this book from Aria Fiction via NetGalley in return for an honest review.
This is powerful psychological suspense with authentic characters and a compelling investigation that is addictive reading. Freya finds out her previously unknown father is in prison and possibly a notorious killer. She is determined to discover the truth. What follows is a true-crime investigation with two unlikely detectives and some grisly discoveries. Some of the descriptions are graphic but are integral to the twisty plot and impactful ending.
