Sarah Broadhurst's view...

Stars a near to retirement DI Hazel Micallef who cares little for correct procedure. I met her in The Calling and loved her. It’s grisly stuff.

If you like Inger Ash Wolfe you might also like to read books by Thomas Harris, Karin Slaughter and Chelsea Cain.

Synopsis

The Taken by Inger Ash Wolfe

'Nightmare': When fact and fiction collide. Detective Inspector Hazel Micallef is recovering from a bad year, and a traumatic back operation that has left her in the care of her ex husband and his new wife. But Hazel is lured back to work when a body is pulled from a nearby lake: a discovery that eerily mirrors a disturbing story printed in the local newspaper. The author of the tale can't be found, and when gruesome, taunting clues begin to arrive Hazel realizes she's dealing with a master manipulator, a crazed soul who knows her every move...
