A novel by

 
 
Her head was yanked back by the hair as a large, tanned hand moved menacingly down her throat. Her sobs flecked his shirt with tears, which now flowed freely, their salty water aggravating the wounds accumulated on her naked flesh over the endless days she had been held captive. The end must be near now and she was so sure that it must end. She tried in vain one last time to wrench free her hands, but the bindings held firm. Knees, so long on the floor, would not have held her up anyway - had she tried to run. He was calm. She was wretched. Instinctively, she pulled her thighs to her abdomen to protect her unborn child. His hands tightened, her eyes widened - pleading. His pressure did not relent and slowly everything faded...

After months of mental and physical therapy, Yvonne Giles, an Oxford detective, is back at work and that's just how she likes it. So when she's asked to hunt the serial killer responsible for taking apart young women, the DI jumps at the chance but hides the fact she is suffering debilitating flashbacks. She is told to work with Tasha Phillips, an in-her-face, criminal psychologist. The DI is not enamoured with the idea. Tasha has a lot to prove. Yvonne has a lot to get over. A tentative link with a 20 year-old cold case brings them closer to the truth but events then take a horrifyingly personal turn...

This is the first book in a series of psychological, serial killer thriller stories, following Detective Yvonne Giles as she hunts some of the most evil serial killers in print today.

What people have been saying:

"Unputdownable"
"Fantastic series of books"

"DI Yvonne Giles is one of the better female title characters I've seen penned in quite a while. She is not silly, frivolous or constantly extolling the virtues of chocolate and coffee as is the norm for female sleuths these days it seems. Nor is she 'hard' or rough around the edges. She's a perfect blend of flawed, driven and intelligent. "

"the plot was gripping and the chase to find the killer compelling... I’m a big fan of British police procedurals, and this one didn't disappoint."

"I thought the characterization of the police was great, and the ending was thrilling and surprising."
