When the victim seems perfect, is it the perfect crime? The gripping new serial killer thriller from the runaway best-selling author of Cry Baby.
On a bitterly cold winter's night, Liverpool is left stunned by a brutal murder in the grounds of the city's Anglican Cathedral. A killer is on the loose, driven by a chilling rage.
Put on the case, DS Nathan Cody is quickly stumped. Wherever he digs, the victim seems to be almost angelic - no one has a bad word to say, let alone a motive for such a violent murder.
And Cody has other things on his mind, too. The ghosts of his past are coming ever closer, and - still bearing the physical and mental scars - it's all he can do to hold on to his sanity.
And then the killer strikes again....

His previous book is a 5* read. This one not so!

I wanted to love this. Indeed, I expected to love it after Jackson's previous book, which was excellent. Sadly, I struggled with this a lot of the time. If not for the previous book, I would probably have abandoned it fairly early. The narration also made it easier to continue. I felt Cody's back story and related problems were a bit OTT and distracted from the main story. Without giving anything too significant away, I also thought it was very sloppy to make a big thing out of members of a murder squad all being amazed to find that it is possible (yes, possible) for a expert to find which websites have been visited recently on computer. Surely, the average person knows that! For me Cody's back story made the book drag, and the big reveal left me underwhelmed. However, I must add that the main story and the characters are good.

I'm Hooked

This DS Nathan Cody guy is so frustratingly complex... Yet it's a frustration that's become a tractor beam for my imagination. CAUTION... DO NOT START THIS SERIES ANYWHERE OTHER THAN BOOK 1 - "A Tapping At My Door". While the clever whodunnit stands alone in this serial killer puzzle, the inner workings of Cody demand the setup in the first book. And those workings have captured me enough to wait impatiently for April of 2018 when I expect the next DS Cody will drop from David Jackson's keypad to my downloader.

Oh, BTW, this ain't a book for the feint of heart. Yep, it gets brutal. Not to worry, there's always another "Murder She Wrote" somewhere that you can buy if you feel a need for a warm murder tale :-)

Oh yeah, I can't imagine this ensemble from any lips but Jonathan Keeble's. He nails it.

Scared me witless!!

I love Nathan Cody - he is someone I wish I knew personally. Great police officer, honest, lovable. His tormentors are terrifying and I am not kidding around. I listen on my way to/from work and had to pause the book a couple of times to take it in. Am happy it wasn't dark when I got to those parts! The narrator is top notch and I could understand every single word! He brings all the characters to life. Please hurry with the next installment!
