You don't know him. But he knows you.
Soon he would be able to touch her, to feel the warmth of her blood. And when the time came, nothing would stop him.
As DC Jennifer Knight investigates a routine stabbing in the quiet town of Haven, she is shocked by what seems like a personal message from beyond the grave.
When more bodies are found, Jennifer is convinced the killings are somehow linked. What she discovers is more chilling than she could possibly imagine. The murders mirror those of the notorious Grim Reaper - from over 20 years ago. A killer her mother helped convict.
Jennifer can no longer ignore the personal connection. Is there a copycat killer at work? Was the wrong man convicted? Or is there something more sinister at play?
With her mother's terrifying legacy spiraling out of control, Jennifer must look into her own dark past in a fight not only to stop a killer - but to save herself and those she loves.
A heart-stopping supernatural thriller to engross fans of Rachel Abbott, Paul Finch, and James Oswald.

On reflection, the second time listening through and realising this is a bit different so suspending some disbelief, this book is quite good. I commend the writer for putting this story together so well, don't think it could have been easy or done any better to leave a reveal until the end. A strange murder mystery / detective series with a twist I'm keen to see how the next book shapes up.
I hadn't the slightest idea that this was going to be a paranormal detective story, but must say that it got better as it went on, making me jump at noises more than once. Without giving away too much, our villain is a bit like the one in "Fallen" with Denzel Washington, and the setup for the series to come has a ring of Mulder and Scully to it. The series has great possibilities, so keeping fingers I'm going to move right on to the next one.
"Fantastic New Dectective Series"
I love a whodunit. This book had me guessing every step of the way and the ending was something I didn't see coming. I am hoping that Audible will include the 2nd book in this series (for some reason only the first and third volumes are on Audible).
I'm addicted and hope to listen to more of this author's wonderful story telling.
Emma Newman was excellent as a reader as well. Highly recommend!
"intriguing but frustrating"
the main character didn't follow through at obvious times she should. that was frustrating. if she had persisted, like the strong person, we hoped she was, she would have gathered more info. I hate knowing more about the character than the the author thinks I should.
"A page turner"
Good character development
Will. He was steady and he tried
I have no idea
I'm looking forward to the next book in the series. The characters are relatable. The author makes you care about them.
The way the author switched back and forth between times/ years. I always like that.
Frank definitely, especially when he was a boy!
In th boathouse, (probably like most of the readers will!)
"The Grim Reaper"
The book started off slow, and actually really didn't get my full attention until 3/4 of the way through, however the ending definitely made up for it. The characters were also very likable.
"Chilling and thrilling."
A fast paced and often terrifying tale. Unlike any crime thrillers you would have read before. The past meets the present in a cleverly woven story which lingers in your memory long after the final chapter.
Looking for something thrilling with a paranormal twist? Look no further. The X Files meets Prime Suspect. Truly looking forward to the next instalment by Caroline Mitchell, she certainly knows how to grab the readers attention.
"Waste of good reading time....."
I have listened to many books. Weak narrative and extremely poor narration. I don't leave a story but this was hard going.
Definitely gave me the heebie-jeebies in places, which is what I look for in a paranormal crime book. The story was good, all be it a touch cliched and predictable occasionally. The involvement of a wee gee board and tarot cards was disappointing. The narration was okay, I ended up listening to it in double time however because it was too slow for my taste. The Irish accent was entertainingly awful! Overall it was a good start to a series with potential, I will read the next instalment.
"Oh dear, never mind."
That's 8 or so hrs I won't get back. Nothing fresh, same old hackneyed guff. Been done SO many times . Bored.
