DI Kelly Porter is back.
But will this new case push her beyond her limits?
On a peaceful summer's morning in the Lake District, a woman's body is discovered outside a church. She's been murdered and a brutal, symbolic act
performed on her corpse.
DI Kelly Porter is in charge of the team investigating the crime, and is determined to bring the killer to justice. But as more deaths occur it is clear this is the work of a disturbed, dangerous and determined individual. Can Kelly
put the puzzle pieces together before the danger comes closer to home?
Rachel Lynch grew up in Cumbria and the lakes and fells are never far away from her. London pulled her away to teach History and marry an Army Officer, whom she followed around the
globe for thirteen years.
A change of career after children led to personal training and sports therapy, but writing was always the overwhelming force driving the future. The human capacity for compassion as well as its descent into the brutal and murky
world of crime are fundamental to her work.
I read this book in two sittings, barely able to wait to find out
the identity of the killer. When a woman's mutilated body is found outside a church, the setting and the beautiful descriptions of the Lakes make the horror seem even more profound. The characters are so real that at times I found myself catching my breath
at the sheer energy and determination of DI Kelly Porter. The relationship with her sister adds a new depth to her character that many readers will identify with. The ending is cleverly done - not so obtuse a twist as to be unbelievable but not one you see
coming from the start either. Really enjoyed this book and would recommend to anyone who enjoys a good thriller.
