Damaged Goods

Newly promoted Detective Inspector Stewart White starts off his career in Leeds with a seemingly random assortment of crimes. A rest area murder. A pub brawl. A missing person. 

As the deadly crime spree escalates, White receives a chilling call from a Florida sheriff. A psychotic Special Forces veteran, Robert Cleghorn, has murdered his brother, assumed his identity—and is believed to be looking for his brother’s vacationing wife in England. 

Expertly trained to eliminate potential threats to his mission while covering his tracks, Cleghorn quickly proves to be just as elusive as his sister-in-law. Can D.I. White and his newly assigned police team find Stephanie Cleghorn before Robert does?

My Review

A really gripping opening sets the scene for the rest of this book. I thoroughly enjoyed this thriller where we know from the start who the serial psychopath is. The tension is in watching the police and the FBI try to catch him and find his next victim before he does. The character of Robert is very detailed and his memory loss is fascinating. Don’t want to say any more and spoil it but if you like crime, thrillers or suspense then you won’t be disappointed.  The newly promoted Detective Inspector is also worth a mention. Totally believable characters and locations in the North of England and across the pond make this one to watch out for! I can easily see this as a television series.
