About Book:

DI Amy Winter is hoping to follow in the footsteps of her highly respected police officer father. But when a letter arrives from the prison cell of Lillian Grimes, one half of a notorious husband-and-wife serial-killer team, it contains a revelation that will tear her life apart.

Responsible for a string of heinous killings decades ago, Lillian is pure evil. A psychopathic murderer. And Amy’s biological mother. Now, she is ready to reveal the location of three of her victims—but only if Amy plays along with her twisted game.

While her fellow detectives frantically search for a young girl taken from her mother’s doorstep, Amy must confront her own dark past. Haunted by blurred memories of a sister who sacrificed herself to save her, Amy faces a race against time to uncover the missing bodies.

But what if, from behind bars, Grimes has been pulling the strings even tighter than Amy thought? And can she overcome her demons to prevent another murder?

My Thoughts:

This is the first book by Caroline Mitchell that I have read and she is a good writer.  I like her style and my interest keeps me until the end.

This is a story of survival, of seeking the truth and living with the lies – the subject matter is timely: child abuse, domestic violence and mental illness. Caroline has written these story lines in a way that affect each other.

The reader can sympathize with DI Amy Winter- the trauma she endured at such a young age and how that affects her as an adult. Caroline’s characters come to life and you care about them…Amy, Paddy, Molly, Pike, Dougie and Hermione. You even care about the villain – Lillian – she is such a hate-filled and manipulative woman – she has no conscience.

I thought this was a good book. Some of the things in the book were hard to read. There were some chapters that were a little long and hard to follow but it kept my interest and I was hoping to find out more about Amy. The author next book is out.  I have downloaded it, now just to find the time to read it.

I recommend this book and I am giving it 5 Stars.
