A killer is terrorising London but this time the police are the targets. Urgently re-assigned to investigate a series of brutal attacks on fellow officers, Maeve Kerrigan and her boss Josh Derwent have little idea what motivates the killer’s fury against the force.

But they know it will only be a matter of time before the killer strikes again.

This story had be intrigued from the prologue. Where you hear first hand the witness account of a murder. 

One murder to solve was very interesting. The moment the second one happened, I had to know exactly what was going on, and how Maeve Kerrigan and her team would solve them, at which point a gripping book become practically unputdownable. 

I love reading books that keep you guessing as to who the murderer is, and the motive, but also the inner workings of MITs (Murtder Investigation Team). And if you are unsure as to all your police acronyms then there is a glossary of terms at the front of the book, to help you out. 

This can definitely be read as a stand alone, but there are enough references to what I am guessing happened in the previous books in the series to make me want to know more than what we are told. The back information we get is all relevant, and means you don't really need to have read the rest of the series.

I found the book to be a solid murder mystery story, with a lot of unexpected twists and turns. Overall a very good book, and I would love to read the next one in the series, as I really want to know what happens to Maeve and Derwent next.
