The second novel in the DI Sean Corrigan series – authentic and terrifying crime fiction with a psychological edge, by an ex-Met detective. Perfect for fans of Mark Billingham, Peter James and Stuart MacBride.
Thomas Keller knows exactly who he’s looking for.... They tried to keep them apart, but when he finds her, he’s going to keep her. Just like he knows she wants him to. DI Sean Corrigan is not like other detectives. His dark past has given him the ability to step into a crime scene and see it through the offender's eyes. He understands what drives a person to commit terrible acts - but sometimes his gift feels more like a curse.
When women start disappearing from their homes in broad daylight, Corrigan’s Murder Investigation Team is reluctant to take on a missing persons case. But then the first body turns up, and Corrigan knows he must quickly get into the mind of the murderer. Because this killer knows exactly who he wants. And he won’t stop until he finds her.
"A striking debut from a former Murder Squad Detective, Delaney is not his real name, but there is no doubt about his inside knowledge and ability to convey it." (
"A confident, aggressive and very promising debut by a former Met detective." ( The Times)
"An authentic voice on how the police operate with a stone-cold killer striking randomly around London...scary authenticity." ( The Sun)

Had to stop listening
No - it made me uncomfortable
Just downloaded the latest Stuart MacBride.
They would need to cut a lot of the scenes. But I quite like the nuance of the main character.
I did read the previous reviews before I downloaded this and I wished I'd taken notice - there were so many graphic sex scenes I couldn't carry on - One reviewer referred to them as gratuitous and I wouldn't disagree. It's a shame as I really enjoyed the first one and am nervous of trying the next.
I've read both The Toy Taker and Cold Killing and loved them, I just didn't like the huge amount of sexual violence in this book. My husband had read it and warned me but I thought I'd have a go but only got to chapter 2 before giving up on it. I will be getting a refund.
No but I will take more notice of the reviews in future.
I like the character of DI Sean Corrigan but this wasn't enough to make me listen to the rest. I hope Luke Delaney learns from this.
The DI Corrigan series are very well written and I would try a new one, The Toy Taker was excellent!
