Fast paced and unputdownable

I am a massive fan of Carol Wyer’s crime novels - Natalie Ward and Robyn Carter are 2 of my favourite series. So when I heard that we were to meet a new female detective I could not wait to read it. I got this book though Amazon First Reads and upgraded to the audiobook on publication day. And it was fantastic. If you love a good police procedural story then grab a Carol Wyer book.
DI Kate Young is a determined, tough but broken woman. She is on leave after a massively traumatic experience that we learn about throughout the book. However, when a prominent business man is murdered in his home, he superiors ask her to come back to Head the team to find the killer. It is a particularly gruesome murder and Kate has her work cut out for her. While still nowhere near finding their culprit another body is found, who has suffered a similar fate. And that is not all they have in common. The further they dig, the more this case twists and finds links to other cases.
I love that Kate was. It perfect, far from it. She is suffering, taking pills to get through the days. She makes mistakes, she works her butt off and I cannot wait to learn more about her.
