DI Brook thought the nightmare was over- but the Reaper has left behind a horrifying legacy…
A nail-shredding thriller for fans of Stuart MacBride and Thomas Harris.
When an accidental drowning is found to be murder, Brook’s past relationship with the victim makes him the prime suspect. A fact made worse when he receives a chilling message urging him to continue the work of the serial killer The Reaper, the deranged vigilante who had previously terrorised the UK.
When a copycat murder on a Derby estate surfaces shortly afterwards, Brook is left with no alternative but to reopen the case- and to find a serial killer he knows is already dead.
But as Brook delves deeper, he unearths the secrets behind a series of savage murders stretching back to 1975. Terrifyingly, it seems that The Reaper’s influence has inspired a new band of willing disciples…
I would like to thank the author for allowing me to read such a riveting book and all the other readers who've said he's 1 to watch.
It took me a while as I am in the middle of moving house, but I grabbed it with both hands when I got the chance. I thought I knew who the killer was as it was obvious as you read the book. It took some good twists and turns, seeing how the story was moving along. It picked up from where The Reaper had finished and added some new characters into the mix. Some parts I never saw coming (like for instance the real cuplrit). Makes you think when you read Steven Dunne's books that not everything you see is what's really happening.
Looking forward to reading the rest of the series over the coming months. Well done to Mr Dunne.
