'Gives Jo Nesbo a run for his money' Sunday Express
From the author of the bestselling Richard and Judy bookclub pick I'm Travelling Alone
No one is safe in the dark...
When a young woman is found dead, the police are quick to respond. But what they find at the murder site is unexpected. The body is posed, the scene meticulously set. And there is almost no forensic evidence to be found.
Detective Mia Krüger is a woman on the edge - she has been signed off work pending psychological assessment. But her boss has less regard for the rules than he should. Desperate to get Mia back in the office, Holger Munch offers her an unofficial deal.
But the usually brilliant Mia is struggling and the team are unable to close the case. Until a young hacker uncovers something that forces the team to confront the scope of the murderer’s plans and face the possibility that he may already be on the hunt for a second victim.
Samuel Bjork’s latest novel The Boy in the Headlights is out now
Like the first book in the series “I’m travelling alone” this is a great, faced paced crime thriller which is at times difficult to put down.
Like it’s predecessor however, it also shares a slightly annoying theme, which I can only describe as a “writer’s tick”. WINKING.
As silly and petty as it sounds, there’s too much winking in these books. Everyone winks at each other all the time, whether they’re being funny, sarcastic or angry and it’s really irritating because well, people just don’t wink that much!
Great read though, which I highly recommend. ;)
Edge of the seat stuff, which I had to read in one sitting.
