Some people have secrets...

And there are those who have deadly secrets...

The murder of an unidentified woman in a hotel room proves to be a perplexing case for DI Sara Ramsey.

Sifting through the victim's past reveals numerous inconsistencies and shocking secrets she had taken to her grave.

Why had the killer silenced her?

Sara and her team need to unravel the mystery, but in doing so, do they put yet more lives in danger as well as their own?

In order to find happiness in her personal life, Sara is forced to deal with demons from her past.

I have no idea how M. A. Comley keeps coming up with so many new books, new story-lines, and even more dastardadly villains with each release, but I'm just delighted that she does, as yet again this is a fabulous story. 

I had absolutely no idea who the killer was, nor how the police were going to work out who the victims were, let alone the killer. It all took me by surprise in  a nice way, as I wasn't able to predict it at all. 

However what intrigued me more was the big ongoing series arc storyline in Sara's personal life, which leads to some awkward decisions, but also means we get to know her boss Carol a lot more too. 

We really didn't get to see to much of the rest of Sara's team this time, but I'm sure with future books I'll get a more rounded idea about them all. They all seem to be solid hard workers which is what you need while investigating serial killers. 

The killer was truly evil in this book, and the few insights into his mind, had me thinking what an unpleasant person he was - but then again you don't really meet pleasant killers! 

This is another excellent addition to this very promising series. Bring on book 4! 

Thank you yo Mel Comley for my copy of this book which I have reviewed honestly and voluntarily.
