Book Description

Close your eyes … Just pray you don’t wake up.
A killer stalks the streets of East London. All over the area, murdered young women are discovered, their bodies posed into disturbing recreations of fairytale princesses.
Detective Ruby Preston is determined to hunt down the murderer who is using the women to realise his dark fantasies. But when body parts are found at the home of her lover, Nathan Crosby, Ruby is torn between her job and her heart.
Convinced that he is being framed, Ruby must catch the killer before Nathan becomes the number one suspect. But as more victims are found, it becomes harder to prove his innocence.
As Ruby starts to close in on the twisted individual, can she stop him before he strikes again? And how well does she really know the man she loves?

My Review

Omg what a fantastic thriller, the plotline truly amazing, just the right amount of darkness and thrills, unputdownable. Caroline Mitchell has outdone herself again.
A compelling read following DS Ruby Preston as she races against time to catch a serial killer who is snatching young women, then posing them in character in staged scenes, someone is trying to frame her lover Nathan, a man from the other side of the law. We go through the turmoil that Ruby inevitably feels as she tries to stay true to her profession but also the love for Nathan and their daughter, trying everything she can to bring the true killer to justice.

I hadn’t read the first in the series but there was enough history in the story to enable an understanding of the characters and not leave me wondering who they really are, I will go back and read the first but you certainly could read this book as a standalone.

A compelling and dark thriller which will keep you on the edge of your seat and take you on a rollercoaster ride of your life and leave you wanting more.
