LoveReading View on Sweetheart

Although leading on from the author’s first novel, Heartsick, this can be read alone, and read it you must. I do believe Chelsea Cain one of the most exciting finds in the macabre area since Thomas Harris gave us Hannibal Lecter, only here our serial killer is a woman and the detective a man – but the relationship between them is bizarre. This one is a little more predictable than the first but still first rate. Highly recommended.


Comparison: Thomas Harris, Michael Marshall, Tess Gerritsen.

Sweetheart Synopsis

'I want you,’ Gretchen said. ‘I’ve always wanted you.’

Investigative journalist Susan Ward is about to print the story of her career – proving long-rumoured allegations about a respected senator’s affair with a young girl. But the day before her story is published, the senator is killed in a car crash.

Detective Archie Sheridan is trying to rebuild a life with his family. But he remains haunted by beautiful, ruthless serial killer Gretchen Lowell – the woman who tortured him then saved his life. Now that she is safely behind bars, Archie is determined to stay away from her. And when a mysterious child leads him to two bodies in Forest Park, Archie must focus his attention on the case.

But then the unthinkable happens: Gretchen escapes. The only thing this gorgeous psychopath cares about is Archie – and with her on the loose, everyone he loves has become a target . . .
