THE PERFUME KILLER

LINDA HAGAN

A book review.

I have no words to appreciate Author Linda Hagan for her edge-of-the-seat thriller. This book had me completely mesmerized with its powerful characters, fantastic narration, and completely devoid of unnecessary description. Wonderful, too good to be missed. I loved the location as well. It’s set in Belfast, in Northern Ireland.
The story begins with a character, Lucy, enjoying her outing in an amusement park in Germany with the animatronic figures that fascinates kids. There’s plenty of screams, shrieks of delight, unaware of a great tragedy. A dead pirot, is found with his throat slit and the subsequent fire tragedy takes place the next day.


Detective Chief Inspector Gawn Girvin is back home after a day’s work and goes for a jog into the Botanic Gardens adjoining University PE Centre. She’s unaware of a tragedy that’s going to strike next. Just after her exit, a murderer lays hidden in a bush, waiting for his prey, a gorgeous girl in a yellow coat but his plan is thwarted when another man turns up. The murderer kills him instead as per his MO, kill the victims and pour the perfume. Sergeant Paul Maxwell informs her of the tragedy and mentions that the murder victim was a foreign national, Dieter Weil.

DCI and her team are under tremendous pressure to solve the case before the Organized Crime unit could take over the investigation. Weiter was a criminal belonging to Schwarzer Adler gang. Is this a murder for revenge or an internal gang war? Then why leave perfume? Besides, DCI Gawn receives a mysterious package that has her visibly shaken. There are shocking revelations and unexpected twists that would keep you guessing about the identity of the killer.

This is one of the most enjoyable reads and I highly recommend it for all the mystery lovers. Great work by Ms. Linda Hagan.

A book review

This is a splendid murder mystery that’s absolutely thrilling to the core. Every page makes you wonder what’s going to happen next. These are the signs of an excellent crime thriller. I found it very gripping and couldn’t stop reading even for a moment. Hats off to the author for a wonderful highly entertaining book.


Detective Danny Cavallo working for RCMP( Royal Canadian Mounted Police) has been recently recruited from Port Alma’ s Police Department ( Criminal Investigation Unit) for a special operation ( Operation Ladybird) to crack the cases of human trafficking, especially child abuse. He is worried because his daughter, Jaime, hasn’t texted him. It turns out that someone has kidnapped her. He is so worried that he even rejects the dinner invite from his former colleague, DC Holly Towns. DC Holly with DC Nathan Keele are knee deep involved in the murder investigations of Mark Allenby and Warren Quick. Both were shady characters and high levels of ketamine was found in their blood. Holly’s investigations lead to sexual crimes through an app called Young Cupid and vigilantes taking law into their own hands. Who is the mastermind behind these heinous crimes? Is Jaime’s kidnapping related to these murders? Will she be found alive or dead? There are plenty of twists, turns, and surprising revelations to keep you glued to this thriller. The suspense and thrill is well maintained, but hats off to DC Holly for her sensational detective skills.
I am so impressed with this book that I would consider giving it another read. Do grab this book and enjoy a great crime thriller.
