Summary

A rising death toll. A city in panic. A young mother is found dead in her home with no obvious cause of death. As DI Hannah Robbins and her team investigate, it soon becomes clear that the woman is the first in a long line of murders by poison.

With the body count climbing and the city of Nottingham in social meltdown, the team find themselves in a deadly race against a serial killer determined to prove a point. And Hannah finds herself targeting an individual with whom she has more in common than she could possibly know.

absolutely sublime, no word wasted, perfection

Despite being a police crime thriller, the story is raw without the gore and raw with emotion. Each word carefully chosen, but utterly bereft allowing the reader to use their naked imagination and go through the same roller coaster of thoughts, feelings and actions without superfluous description. A masterpiece in storytelling. A contender for my book of the year and hopefully many other people's too. A must read.

a good read, like the narrator's voice

a well-crafted story that kept me keen to get to the next chapter. Nottingham, a city I know, makes a believable setting.

Good

Quite good but a bit long winded and a lot of chapters but assume on paper they weren’t very long

Not quite as good as the first

This was the second book in the series, not quite as good as the first. It was still a good police procedural. I recommend this to fans of police procedurals

A Great British Police Procedural

D. I. Hannah Robbins guides her team through the emotional aftermath of losing a team member while hunting for a serial killer. As the case drags on, the public response to the lack of progress turns deadly, with the police the.selves under mob attack. This is a great story and the narration is wonderful. I hope there are more Hannah Robbins novels soon.
