DCI Kate Burrows is looking for a serial killer in her home town of Grantley.  This has brought painful memories for her partner Pat as his daughter was killed by the Grantley Ripper.  The couple badly miss having a family around them for Kate’s daughter has gone to New Zealand.  Kate has been dragged out of retirement and those familiar with her from previous novels will love the development here.  She is a great character.  Those new to this author are given enough to appreciate her.  The case involves missing schoolgirls who turn up mutilated and murdered.  Then a boy goes missing, the novel changes gear and accelerates at quite a pace.  It’s unputdownable.  Running alongside this is a very human of her partner Pat finding a son he never knew he had and grandchildren, in fact a ready-made family.  This is a real page-turner, not to be missed. Sarah Broadhurst
