Publisher's Summary

Jefferson Winter is no ordinary investigator. The son of one of America's most renowned serial killers, Winter has spent his life trying to distance himself from his father's legacy.
When he accepts a particularly disturbing case in London, Winter arrives to find a psychopath on the loose who likes abducting and lobotomising young women. Winter must use all his preternatural brain power in order to work out who is behind the attacks, before another young woman becomes a victim.


What the Critics Say

"[Jefferson Winter is] a compulsively readable character who has the intelligence and the charisma to engage and entertain the reader." (Katherine Armstrong)
"Broken Dolls has it all. Horrifying evil, a brilliant, conflicted profiler and cracking pace and tension. I read it in what seemed like two trembling gulps." (Stephen Fry)

Great but truly unnerving story by James Carol. I am straight off to find more as I am totally hooked by Carol's amazingly attractive anti hero. That said and by no means wishing to lessen what was a fantastic story, my biggest praise has got to go to reader William Hope. If ever I wish I could pass on my gratitude in person it would be to you. You NAILED the accents you star! I am a bit of an accent snob and nothing spoils a great audio book more for me than a bad accent. Sometimes it's only a lilt on the vowels but I find myself cringing. This time however I found myself rewinding to figure out if you were an American doing an English accent or an Englishman doing an American accent and what do I find? You're Canadian. This is me with my hat so far off that it has been deemed abandoned and is up for rehoming!

Broken Dolls - female narrator spoils this book for me

Broken Dolls - female narrator spoils this book for me, her take on Adam the unsub's voice was grating, annoying & so unconvincing at being menacing .
The storyline, plot & Jefferson Winter were good, could have been 4 stars.
