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.
