Lovereading view...

A dramatic, sinister and deeply tense tale set in Sweden. Prosecutor Jana Berzelius works with police investigators after a man is found murdered in his home. He is the head of a department dealing with asylum cases, and when a child’s handprint is found near the victims body, long hidden thoughts begin to awaken in Jana’s mind. Scattered through the story is someone else’s tale, a young child is torn from her family and in each new chapter, another piece is added to the jagged edged jigsaw. Emelie Schepp ramps up the tension and keeps it bubbling along with each turn of the page. We know just a little more than the investigating team, yet somehow this increases the suspense, and sets questions in motion. ‘Marked for Life’ is the first in a trilogy, the shocks and fast moving action ensure this is a riveting read, and I look forward to book two. ~ Liz Robinson

Synopsis

Marked for Life by Emelie Schepp

WINNER OF THE SPECSAVERS READERS CHOICE AWARD 2016 In Lindo, on the Swedish coast, a man has been found brutally murdered in his own home. Public prosecutor Jana Berzelius steps in to lead the investigation. Young and brilliant but emotionally cold, Berzelius, like her famous prosecutor father, won't be swayed by the hysterical widow or intimidated by the threatening letters the victim had tried to hide. Jana is steely, aloof, impenetrable. That is, until the next body is found...A few days later on a nearby deserted shoreline, the body of a preteen boy is discovered, and with him, the murder weapon that killed him and the original victim. Berzelius is drawn more deeply into the case for as she attends his autopsy, she recognizes something strangely familiar in his small, scarred, heroin-riddled body. Cut deep into his flesh are initials that scream child trafficking and trigger in her a flash of memory of her own dark, fear-ridden past. Her connection to this boy has been carved with deliberation and malice that penetrate to her very core. Now, to protect her own hidden past, she must find the suspect behind these murders, before the police do. International bestselling author Emelie Schepp introduces us to the enigmatic, unforgettable Jana Berzelius in this first novel of a chilling trilogy
