    • This is a intense blend of psychological thriller and police procedural set in Liverpool Aside from a hunt for a sociopath serial killer, known as the Thorn Killer, there is the mystery and intrigue of the relationship between DCI Greg Carver and DS Ruth Lake, underpinned by distrust, lies, secrets and deception Carver is the lead investigator of the killer who has tortured and killed 5 women, tattooing them painfully using a thorn as the stylus, experimenting with differing inks mixed with a Th [...]

    • I am unsure whether this is pegged to be the start of a new series, but I really hope so because I thoroughly enjoyed it I found the main characters to be divisively engaging and the dark undertone to the plot really did get under my skin.I liked this one for the way it was told we start with a detective shot and his sergeant standing over him but did she shoot him If so why That is the question and instead of going back in time we go forward, day by day, as he lies in the hospital and s I am un [...]

    • In the first of a new series, partners Greg Carver and Ruth Lake have been chipping away for months on a case dubbed the Thorn Killer , where female victims have been tattooed with thorns and poisonous ink After Carver ends up shot in the chest, presumably by this psycho, Ruth must continue to work every angle hoping to catch a sadistic killer before any other victims are claimed This a well done slow boil police procedural for those who have enjoyed Tana French or Tess Gerritsen.
