Synopsis/Blurb (Taken from Goodreads):

“Imitation is the sincerest form of flattery…

When body parts are found on the banks of the River Thames in Deptford, DI Angelica Henley is tasked with finding the killer. Eerie echoes of previous crimes lead Henley to question Peter Olivier, aka The Jigsaw Killer, who is currently serving a life sentence for a series of horrific murders.

When a severed head is delivered to Henley’s home, she realises that the copycat is taking a personal interest in her and that the victims have not been chosen at random.

To catch the killer, Henley must confront her own demons – – and when Olivier escapes from prison, she finds herself up against not one serial killer, but two.”

My Thoughts & Review

This is a well written, fast paced crime thriller that I flew through. I loved the twisty plot that had me hooked from the beginning. My favourite parts of the book were definitely the descriptions of the murder scenes, they were gory and full of detail, just what I love reading. This is where you can really tell Matheson has done her research.

There are a few characters to keep track of but they are extremely well done. They are interesting and well developed which means I found them relatable and they felt much more realistic.

Overall a great read and an excellent introduction to a new series. Highly recommend.

    • Thanks Tessa!! So glad to hear you loved this one too for the character development. I’m finding it’s getting harder to find books that have both great plot and character development together. Although, it may just be me finding this a problem at the moment lol!
