Maxim Jakubowski's view...

KAREN TAYLOR - British author Natasha Cooper introduces this new character, a forensic psychologist, in NO ESCAPE. Dark psychological tones and tortured relationships define the feisty character who proves a worthy addition to the ranks of complex heroines with a dark past, as she comes to probe the mind of a psychopath in an Isle of Wight prison. Cooper previously wrote the Trish Maguire series, with a female lawyer at the helm, also worth looking out for.

Spike Falconer is in prison on the Isle of Wight - convicted of murder. What made him choose four innocent strangers, a family picnicking, as his victims? Why did he need to kill?

The more she learns, the more afraid she becomes of those who are threatened by her discoveries. And then they start to act ...
