Damaged by Martina Cole

I throughly enjoyed this book love the characters such as (Kate burrows) (Patrick Kelly) I Hope there’s more titles coming out with those characters. The only negative I have to say about this title is the ending .

I didn’t like not hearing why the killer did what He did . There wasn’t much from the killers perspective.

Also this is probably a compliment to Martina Cole . I wish the book was longer I was enjoying it so much I didn’t want it to end .

Thank You Martina Cole for another fantastic enjoyable read .

Looking forward to the next title in the trilogy featuring Kate burrows and Patrick Kelly .

Started out good, but became repetitive. The same sentences being used over and over. Rubbish ending, didn’t explain how the bodies were dumped in the woods. Ice-cream cart??
