Sarah Broadhurst's view...

December 2013 eBook of the Month.

New readers to this author should not be put off by this being the latest in a series featuring Carson Ryder as there is sufficient back story where needed which will probably make you want to read all the others! However we are off to a new location for previously Carson has been in Alabama. Now he is in Florida, not yet officially on the books of the Law Enforcement Centre but nevertheless called in by his new boss, Roy McDermott, to attend a crime scene. Carson specialises in psychopaths, and here in Florida he deals with people trafficking and the sex slave trade too, something he had not had occasion to come across in his usual stamping ground. Smoothly written, suspenseful, with touches of humour, this is a lovely series.

The Death Box by J. A. Kerley

Detective Carson Ryder faces his most terrifying adversary yet in this nail-biting thriller from the author of Her Last Scream. Carson Ryder thought he'd seen everything ...A specialist in twisted crimes, Detective Carson Ryder thought he'd seen the lowest depths of human depravity. But he's barely started his new job in Miami when called to a horrific scene: a concrete pillar built of human remains, their agony forever frozen in stone. Finding the secret of the pillar drags him into the sordid world of human trafficking, where one terrified girl holds the key to unraveling a web of pain, prostitution and murder. There's just one problem: Ryder's not the only one chasing the girl. And the others will kill to keep the secret safe.
