Summary

Detective Carson Ryder faces his most terrifying adversary yet in this nail-biting thriller from the author of Her Last Scream.
Carson Ryder thought he'd seen everything.… A specialist in twisted crimes, Detective Carson Ryder thought he'd seen the lowest depths of human depravity. But he's barely started his new job in Miami when called to a horrific scene: a concrete pillar built of human remains, their agony forever frozen in stone.
Finding the secret of the pillar drags him into the sordid world of human trafficking, where one terrified girl holds the key to unravelling a web of pain, prostitution, and murder. There's just one problem: Ryder's not the only one chasing the girl. And the others will kill to keep the secret safe.

Brilliant listen. Great story, with believable characters told in a way that although shocking allows you to see into everything and everyone involved in this terrible crime.

Carson's moved

Carson has moved to Miami and is involved in a human trafficking takedown. The violence was pretty graphic here and put me off a bit; and Carson wasn't actually in the story a lot as it centred on the victims.

A good nod to his brother at the end, makes you think he could take over from Dexter as Miami's number one serial killer.
