This is my first Mari Hannah Book and I’m seriously impressed. Detective Chief Inspector Kate Daniels is a brilliant character, strong and capable but when it comes to her personal life I just wanted to shake her. She’s living in fear of her secret being found out and of losing what she has built in her job as a murder squad detective. The personal and professional become intertwined and it was interesting to see how she dealt with it all.
The story was tense, thrilling and creepy and was intensified by the short chapters. Mari Hannah’s writing had a gritty realism and the Newcastle and northeast area was a character in itself. I loved it and can’t wait to work my way through the whole series.
