Sarah Broadhurst's view...

I love the cop, she is close enough to retirement not to care if she bends a rule or two; I love the concept, murder victims who are definitely inviting their killer into their homes; I love the villain, a truly demented individual on a very strange mission and so, I love the book, nicely creepy, very compulsive and just that little bit different. Great stuff, not for the faint-hearted.

Synopsis

The Calling by Inger Ash Wolfe

Forgive him his trespasses . . .

Detective Inspector Hazel Micallef of Port Dundas is making her way toward retirement with something less than grace. Hobbled by a bad back and a dependence on painkillers, and blindsided by her recent divorce, sixty-one-year-old Hazel has only the constructive criticism of her old goat of a mother to buoy her.

But when a Port Dundas woman is found murdered in her home – with no sign of resistance and her mouth sculpted into a strangely meaningful shape – Hazel and her bickering department spring to life. And as more bodies are found, she must confront a clamouring press and the town’s rumour mill whilst she edges ever closer to this terrifying, gruesomely inventive serial killer.

Reviews

'The Calling had me from the first page and never let me go. I absolutely loved Hazel Micallef'

KATE ATKINSON

'The Calling is that rare unplug-the-phone, skip-all-meals, ignore-your-bedtime thriller. It’s twisty, sharp and very, very creepy—and Det. Hazel Micallef is a perfectly original charmer.' GILLIAN FLYNN, author of SHARP OBJECTS

'So impressive I couldn't put the damned thing down... genuine surprises, twists and turns that will keep you turning pages quickly and too late into the night.' LA Times

'The most enthralling, creepiest, grizzliest book I've read in years.' CHELSEA CAIN, author of HEARTSICK
