S.J. Bolton, known to her friends as Sharon, has become established as one of England's foremost crime writers. She is right up there with Martina Cole - or for that matter - the male American James Patterson. In fact, in 94 chapters, this book races along as quickly as the best that Patterson has delivered. Young policeman Lacey Flint is personally, and thus emotionally, involved in her first murder case - and so, as the reader, are you.

If you like S. J. Bolton you might also like to read books by Mark Billingham, Jilliane Hoffman and Mo Hayder.

Synopsis

Now You See Me by S. J. Bolton

Is Jack back? More cunning, more illusive, and ready to play new games...A savage murder on London's streets, 120 years to the day since Jack the Ripper claimed his first victim. A vicious crime, and all the hallmarks of a copycat killer. Detective Constable Lacey Flint has never worked a murder case. And now she must outwit a brilliant, brutal killer whose infamous role model has never been found. When the murderer claims another victim, Lacey agrees to be the bait to lure out the monster. But this killer is a step ahead, and is already fixated on Lacey.

Praise for Now You See Me:

'Now You See Me is really special: multilayered and sophisticated, but tough too--like getting hit in the face with a Swiss watch.' - Lee Child


'Excellent . . . Now You See Me is a cerebral thriller that avoids cliches. Each twist and turn is unpredictable.' - Oline H. Cogdill, Sun-Sentinel

'Bolton provides excruciating tension.' - Kirkus Reviews (one of the best mysteries of 2011)
