On a cold winter’s morning, the body of a young boy is discovered in Epping Forest.
The body is pristine and peaceful, his head resting gently on a pillow, an angel pendant clenched in his small fist. It is a murder as carefully planned as it is brutal, and there’s one person DI Bishop needs back on his team to help solve such a calculated crime.
Holly Wakefield, criminal psychologist for the Met Police, is better than anyone Bishop knows at getting inside the brains of psychopaths. But with the body count rising, it’s going to take all their strength and resolve to stop the serial killer before any more angels are put to their rest . . .
Another pacy thriller from Mark Griffin, I love Holly as a character, I am a bit of a sucker for a good profiler protagonist.
In this instalment the murder of a young boy brings Holly back into the investigation told as she applies her own peculiar sense of things to proceedings. The plot flows outwards brilliantly and addictively and is not easily predictable.
Overall on two books in I’m a fan of this series. If you like a good procedural then this will be for you.
