Young women are abducted. The perpetrator (s) indicate who will be the next victim by leaving a ‘calling card’, which is a doll made of skin. DCI Ava Turner and DI Callanach are the investigating officers, along with their other detectives. The sub plot confuses matters, somewhat- homeless people are targeted and branded with the letter Z on their faces. This has nothing at all to do with the main storyline.
There’s a lot that makes this a good read but also, a few situations that stretch the believable. That said, this book is better than many that purport to be crime/police thrillers.
There are 2 storylines,savage knife attacks and young women being hideously mutilated and our regular cast of heroes trying to decide whether or not they were linked. As ever the private lives of the main characters as as much part of the story as the murders and here it has to be said things sometimes take a turn towards the ridiculous,the reason I got fed up with Stuart MacBride's books after several years of enjoyment. Pease Helen,I realise it's escapism and fiction but Ms Overbeck is becoming a totally unbelievable character. There were times as well when characters almost launched into speeches about social issues that I guess are dear to the heart of Ms Fields and while I agreed with her sentiments it did slow the story down now and again.
Niggles aside,I enjoyed it as I have the preceding books and look forward to more from the team,the series goes from strength to strength and there are some good minor characters that flit in and out of the books as well as the main ones.
It's not perfect,it's not Ian Rankin or James Lee Burke but it is entertaining and Helen Fields has quickly established herself as a deservedly popular police procedural author.
Since getting the promotion that may not have been merited Ava has become somewhat boorish and almost too good to be true.
The situation with Overbeck and Lively is just not believable. Running off to work on the secondary crime while another young lady was missing didn't seem plausible.
Finally it is time to resolve the will they or won't they scenario. They are clearly crazy about each other and are good for each other. They are adults and the situation is getting tedious.
Rich Tea biscuits needed capitalising and so did Ecstasy. Her use of hyphens has improved though rabbit runs still needed one and so does print out and this line loses a word: "She'd thought that food was last thing she wanted" and then deserts was written and not desserts.
This line left me baffled briefly till I realised it could be read two ways: "The boyfriend of Sandra Tilly, who runs the shelter where Zoey was living, turns out to have previous for blackmail and threatening behaviour."
Warrior's little story touched me and I imagine we'll get to see more of Detective Pax in upcoming instalments. I do hope so, I liked him and as usual Ava and Luc I enjoy as much as I always have. I liked the victims in this story as well and felt for each one. I just hope there are no godawful clangers in book 5.
Yet again I’ve lost sleep but haven’t minded losing it!
These books are gruesome with detail and the minutiae when needed to make you think it’s real and you’re in the room with the characters. It’s quite a talent to be able to write these books with DI Callanach and the now DCI Turner as if you have the knowledge and experience of being with them when all this happened.... then you remember... it’s a book! Wow, can’t recommend these and this books enough. Thank you and please keep the characters going. It’s definitely the modern day REBUS!!!

I can only say, what an excellent writer, with a great story line, filled with twists and intrigue, as I have mentioned before "Unputdownable".
Can't wait for #5, paid for in advance. Keep up the good work Helen.
Ik kan niet wachten.
The author manages to give the reader a great and evolving plot with each story, even as each book can be read and enjoyed as a stand alone.
The characters are so well developed the reader is intimately drawn into their lives and cheering alongside them when the villains ( and they are some particularly nasty characters) are caught.
Great plot lines, well written, the only surprise is why this has so few reviews. Perhaps it is only a recent addition to Amazon?
amongst the ever so well done main and supporting casts. Romantic vibes mixed in with high tension and evil doers. A police procedural which keeps more than one murder or mayhem flowing threads throughout the lives of the squad. The author has a cast of characters as intriguing as the murders and plot development. Can't wait for the next one.
