A tenacious crime thriller with a difference; where the focus is a self contained, single minded and absolutely fanatical DCI who is prepared to ignore or even trample over any police policies and procedures that are in her way. You don’t need to have read the first in the series ‘Time To Die’, to enjoy this slice of crime fiction. If you are a comfy armchair detective, you may find yourself settling into a different seat for this read… there is a pivotal moment in this novel, just one word makes all the difference between suspecting and knowing who the killer is long before the investigating team. The author feeds the reader far more information about the killer than Hanlon has at her fingertips and this doesn't detract from observing her as she battles her way (sometimes quite literally) through the investigation. Whether you like or dislike Hanlon isn't important, it’s actually whether you want right to kick and stomp all over wrong. ~ Liz Robinson
Detective Inspector Hanlon is back. She's been promoted and now she goes undercover in Oxford to find the sadomasochistic killer of two students. Philosophy lecturer Dr Gideon Fuller, with his penchant for high end sadistic sex, is in the frame, but Hanlon is not convinced. From the specialist brothels in Oxford and Soho, to the inner sanctum of a Russian people trafficker with a taste for hurting women, the trail leads Hanlon deeper and deeper into danger - until she herself becomes the killer's next target.
