What the blurb says:
In the midst of a rock festival, a charity worker is sliced across the stomach. He dies minutes later. In a crowd of thousands, no one saw his attacker. The following week, the body of a primary school teacher is found in a dumpster in an Edinburgh alley, strangled with her own woollen scarf.
DI Ava Turner and DI Luc Callanach have no motive and no leads – until around the city, graffitied on buildings, words appear describing each victim.
It’s only when they realise the words are appearing before rather than after the murders, that they understand the killer is announcing his next victim…and the more innocent the better.
I think something very strange has happened! I am ever so slightly lost for words! I’ve just finished #PerfectPrey and it is completely way off the scale awesome! I don’t want to say any more about the plot than the blurb already tells you because I want you to read, savour and devour this book with the same intensity that I just have!
Luc and Ava are back again but this time there is a bit of a fly in the ointment in their friendship and that fly goes by the name of DCI Joe Edgar and let’s just say that he is one character that you would never tire of slapping! I love Luc Callanach and Ava Turner – this is one almighty literary partnership and each book just leaves you wanting more. I can’t wait to see where Helen Fields takes us next on their journey!
Along with the investigations into the murders across the capital, there is also a major cyber crime investigation going on and this opened up a whole new world into the dark net that would seriously make you think twice about ever going near a computer again! Combined with the personal issues that Luc and Ava are facing the reader is gifted a plot so tense and action packed that I defy you to take a breath while you read!
If you have read Perfect Remains then you know to expect nothing less than sick and twisted but Perfect Prey takes death to a whole new level! Be warned this is not for the faint hearted!
Take your fishing rod when reading this one because there are enough red herrings swimming around those pages to stock a fishery! So many times I thought I had worked it out but no, this plot was so dark and twisted that it kept me guessing all the way to the very end!
This was one of those books that I just couldn’t read fast enough but at the same time, I wanted to slow myself down to make it last longer. It can be read as a standalone but at just the 2nd book in the series do yourself a favour and read Perfect Remains first.
If you like your crime fiction dark, twisted and gruesome and to keep you guessing right up to the last page then you are going to love this!
