Eeny meeny, miney, moe. Who lives, who dies only I know.
When the body of a doctor is discovered brutally murdered in local woodland, Detective Kim Stone is shocked to discover the victim is Gordon Cordell – a man linked to a previous case she worked on involving the death of a young school girl. Gordon has a chequered past, but who would want him dead?
As the investigation gets underway, Gordon’s son is involved in a horrific car crash which leaves him fighting for his life. Kim's sure this was no accident.
Then the body of a woman is found dead in suspicious circumstances and Kim makes a disturbing link between the victims and Russells Hall Hospital. The same hospital where Gordon worked.
With Kim and her team still grieving the loss of one of their own, they’re at their weakest and facing one of the most dangerous serial killers they’ve ever encountered. Everything is on the line. Can Kim keep her squad together and find the killer before he claims his next victim?
The killer is picking off his victims at a terrifying pace, and he’s not finished yet.

I loved this book. I figured out the part about Jessie but the other storyline was a complete surprise to me.
Excellent turning point
In the detective genre, a book series either grows and changes or resorts to higher body counts, more contrived crime that is less realistic, individual quirks being magnified in lieu of character development, and the main character making implausible leaps of logic.
Fatal Promise does none of those.
Our hero in the ninth book isn’t at her best, grief and guilt has impaired her judgment but she and her team evolve and grow.
Solving the crime pales in comparison to the story of Kim and her team in the wake of tragedy. A great step in the series.
