The Doll Maker Synopsis

Mr Marseille is polite, elegant, and erudite. He would do anything for his genteel true love Anabelle. And he is a psychopath. A quiet Philadelphia suburb. A woman cycles past a train depot with her young daughter. And there she finds a murdered girl posed on a newly painted bench. Strangled. Beside her is a formal invite to a tea dance in a week's time. Seven days later, two more young victims are discovered in a disused house, posed on painted swings. At the scene is an identical invite. This time, though, there is something extra waiting for Detectives Kevin Byrne and Jessica Balzano. A delicate porcelain doll. It's a message. And a threat. With Marseille and Anabelle stalking the city, Detectives Byrne and Balzano have just seven days to find the link between the murders before another innocent child is snatched from its streets.

The Good Book Guide Review

Mr Marseille is a well-spoken, well-turned-out and intelligent man devoted to his beloved Annabelle. However, he is a major-league psychopath. In a quiet Philadelphia suburb, a woman discovers a girl strangled and posed on a newly painted bench. Beside her, bizarrely, is a formal invitation to a tea dance in a week’s time. Shortly afterwards, more victims begin to turn up, similarly posed. It’s up to detectives Byrne and Balzano to crack a particularly challenging case.
