Following the investigation of a serial killer who is tracking down prostitutes and trying to save their souls, this story takes the slightly different tack of an outsiders point of view, rather than the detective. This time, we’re coming at it from a therapist’s angle and that gives it a slightly fresher take on the traditional crime thriller.

I thought it was a bit stilted in places, and some of the tension and conversations were a bit unbelievable, but it was mostly an interesting read with a couple of twists and turns to keep you guessing along the way.

The whodunit element was a little bit predictable, and began to be signposted slightly too early, but otherwise it was a serviceable crime novel with enough interesting about the characters to make it the start of a good series.
