Gifted criminal profiler Nathan Radley has a unique way of thinking that allows him to empathize with the twisted killers he helps capture.

But Nathan a dark secret. He has more in common with the criminals he hunts than anyone could dare to imagine. He lives in constant fear of losing control of his own dark desires…

When the headless body of a policeman is dragged from the Thames – an exact enactment of one of his oldest and darkest fantasies, only ever confessed in the pages of his teenage diary – Nathan finds himself the main suspect in the most twisted case of his career.

Someone has his diary and is leaking pages to frame him for the disturbing murders he has spent his whole career trying not to commit. 

As more bodies surface and more extracts are released, Nathan has no choice but to go in search of the killer to clear his name. He knows it’s someone dangerous, he knows it’s someone he trusted, but how many precious lives will be lost before he can work out who?

A nail-biting and unputdownable thriller that fans of Peter James, Angela Marsons and Rachel Abbott will adore.

Thank you to Bookouture for my copy of this book via Netgalley and for letting me take part in this tour. I really enjoyed the first book in this series and was very excited to catch up with Nathan and Katie. This is the second book in the series and would say you do need to read the first book as there are many references to that in this book and many spoilers if you don’t.

This book is set several months after the first one. Katie and Nathan have been hauled up away from the press and their superiors since the inquest surrounding the cartoonist ended. Inevitably the two are dragged back to London and back into the spotlight.

Nick kept me on edge throughout this book. Hi writing is addictive and a little bit manipulative. He does an amazing job of creating suspicion all around. There were very few characters you could trust throughout this book and I’m pretty sure I suspected everyone at one point or another.

This was a thrilling rollercoaster of a ride and I really hope that these two will be returning soon.
