‘What do you know about the Devil Mountain Killer?’
Adeline Connor was the Devil Mountain Killer’s final victim. After she was gunned down, the murderer disappeared and the killing spree ended.
Carter Blake has been hired to do what he does best: to find someone. But this time he’s hunting a dead girl – Adeline Connor’s brother is convinced she’s still alive.
But this town doesn’t want an outsider digging up old business. And as Blake gets deeper into the case, it starts to become clear that the murders didn’t ju st stop fifteen years ago.
The killer is on the hunt again.
A BOOM book. I read it then at the end my heart went BOOM.
Hey look I’ve loved this series since the start, in my honest opinion Presumed Dead is the best one yet and that is actually quite the achievement – but it’s true. This was a pretty perfect read from start to finish, sending Carter Blake after a missing girl who may or may not be dead and may or may not be the victim of a serial killer who may or may not be dead. Phew. It’s quite the rollercoaster ride let me tell you.
Add to that small town blues, a suspicious Sheriff, more death, a bit of action and some cliff hanging shenanigans and you are onto a good thing. Then we have perhaps one of the best endings in a thriller novel I’ve come across for AGES. I was all HA. Brilliant.
Oh beautifully written too. An intelligent thriller with clever twists and multi layered characters. I’m sure I’ve said that before but it bears saying again.
I think we can safely leave it at “Highly Recommended” but you can add some puppies or kittens if you like.
