Pairs of victims are being abducted, imprisoned then faced with a terrible choice- kill or be killed. Would you rather lose your life or lose your mind? Detective Inspector Helen Grace has faced down her own demons on her rise to the top. As she leads the investigation to hunt down this unseen monster, she learns that it may be the survivors - living calling cards - who hold the key to the case.

Library Journal Review

In this best-selling British thriller, DI Helen Grace is on the track of an anomaly-a female serial killer. However, this killer doesn't pull the trigger herself. Instead, she sets up each murder so that two people are abducted and left with a choice: destroy the other prisoner or die slowly of thirst and hunger. Each crime is meticulously planned, and Grace, haunted by her own demons, knows she has to find the common thread among the victims to solve the case. Meanwhile, someone within her department is putting the investigation at risk through leaks to the press, and she must uncover the culprit before her work is thoroughly compromised. VERDICT Fast-paced, terrifying, and impossible to put down, this gripping debut stars a fierce protagonist in Grace. Readers will look forward to the next book in this series!-Lisa O'Hara, Univ. of Manitoba Libs., Winnipeg © Copyright 2015. Library Journals LLC, a wholly owned subsidiary of Media Source, Inc.
