The second in the DI Sean Corrigan series is even better than the first, Cold Killing. The author is an ex-Metropolitan Policeman and the attraction of these are in their authenticity and the above average intelligence of the detective, a perfectly normal man, no drink problem, a happy home life. His strength lies in his insight into the mind of criminals. This is wonderfully done. The characters of the first book are further explored and the author’s ability to write about women, both victims and officials, is masterfully done. An excellent series.
The second novel in the DI Sean Corrigan series - authentic and terrifying crime fiction with a psychological edge, by an ex-Met detective.
