Summary

Detective Claudia Nunn has never seen anything so beautiful—or so horrifying. The intricate drawing is sent to her at work. It shows a man, naked on a bed. His arms are bound, his face contorted in agony, a huge blade stuck deep in his back. Gory? Certainly. Something to worry about? Not likely. Police get sent weird stuff all the time. Until Claudia is called to a crime scene that exactly recreates the drawing.

When another sketch arrives, Claudia thinks she might have a serial killer on her hands, who thinks he's an artist. Claudia's in a race against time to stop anyone else dying—and the next victim could be her.  

Perfect for fans of Helen H. Durrant, Rachel Abbott, Biba Pearce, Angela Marsons and L. J. Ross.

Critic reviews

"An original take on the classic police procedural, I found it pacy, dark and compelling." (Jane Isaac)

Just bad

A combination of the awful voices, unlikable characters, and implausible plot.

The dialogue is something from a bad cop show. Claudia is an an awful person. Then it's supposed to be believable that a father and daughter would be on the same police team and the daughter would be a higher rank.

It's a ridiculous story and time I'll never get back.
