For most it is unobtainable.

DI Sara Ramsey is forced to tackle one of her toughest cases to date when a tragic fire turns out to be the actions of a deranged arsonist.

A person set on revenge...but why? What's his motive? He's risking everything, striking when innocent people are asleep in their beds, leaving in his wake a trail of devastation that is harrowing for Sara and her team to unravel.

Emotions are running high for all concerned: the families, the investigation team, and the murderer.

Can Sara capture the perpetrator while dealing with a personal issue that rocks her world, or will the murderer complete his revengeful agenda? 

Grab this fast-paced thriller today, if you dare.

I don't think I've ever read a book with a more apt title. Deluded is just about the only word I have for the serial killer in this new addition to the D. I. Sara Ramsey series. 

The crimes are truly atrocious and they are ramped up at such speed it doesn't bare thinking about, but at the same time, it meant the pacing of this book was incredibly fast.  

I was completely hooked on seeing just how DI Sara Ramsey and her team were going to solve this one, especially given how little they had to go on.  And yet again Sara is put through the wringer in her personal life too.  Nothing ever seems to go smoothly for her, and I'm amazed continually how she copes with everything. 

I did enjoy seeing her relationships deepen and continue to grow both with Mark and also Carla her partner.   Sara has over the course of the first 4 books of this series continued to develop as a person, and although a complete workaholic, with good reason, she also seems more rounded than before.  

I would still love to get to know the rest of her team better, we don't really see much of them at all, other than in meetings, and it would be good to get to know them all better, just to get a better feel for the police station.  That being said I do really like Lorraine, the pathologist's personality, despite her harrowing job. 

This is another wonderful book in this series,  which seems to be going from strength to strength. The writing is up to the author's normal high standard, and the plot is addictively gripping,.  The bad guy is horribly deluded and especially cruel. 

It is a fabulously fast paced story that is really quick to read, and will have you hooked the entire time.  My best recommendation would be to clear a couple of hours, switch off from the world and enjoy. 

Thank you to the author for this copy which I have reviewed honestly and voluntarily. 


  1. Aww... thanks so much, Rachel. There is more to come from the team, I promise. xxx

  2. Ooh, I saw this but then when I realised it was part of a bigger series I thought I better not. But reading your review is definitely making me want to check out the rest of the series. One to track down I think. Great review!
