Sarah Broadhurst's view...

Shortlisted for the Theakstons Old Peculier Crime Novel of the Year 2010.

September 2009 Debut of the Month.

Warped, sick, gruesome and very good, this is told in alternating chapters between the police investigation into the killing of pregnant women and the cutting out of their babies, to the killer’s home and coping with the results. It’s very compelling, frightening stuff, not for the squeamish.

Comparison: Mo Hayder, Tess Gerritsen, Karen Rose.

If you like Tania Carver you might also like to read books by Karen Rose, Kathy Reichs and Richard Montanari.

Synopsis

The Surrogate by Tania Carver

A shocking double-murder scene greets Detective Inspector Philip Brennan when he is called to a flat in Colchester. Two women are viciously cut open and laying spreadeagled, one tied to the bed, one on the floor. The woman on the bed has had her stomach cut into and her unborn child is missing.

But this is the third time Phil and his team have seen such an atrocity. Two other pregnant women have been killed in this way and their babies taken from them. No-one can imagine what sort of person would want to commit such evil acts.

When psychologist Marina Esposito is brought in, Phil has to put aside his feelings about their shared past and get on with the job. But can they find the killer before another woman is targeted?
