Well done Candice, another fab instalment if the Crimson Lake series. I love your character development and your writing style is not bogged down with needless detail.

Lani has also done a great job. I’m glad he was used again as there is nothing worse then when a narrator is changed throughout the series.
Fab work team.

I have listened to all of SJM’s books and feel that she is dragging them out way too much. My love for her style was not enough to stop me from rolling my eyes in places and to get frustrated when she would repeat herself endlessly.
Perhaps being paid by the word has changed her style?

This is the fifth book I’ve listen to that Candice has either written or co-authored and I am loving her work. I don’t have any flash works to critique her work, other than Candice writes a fabulous story that flows well and is compelling.
I have listened to a few books narrated by Lani (most of those are Candice’s books) and I find he is the perfect match for Candice’s books.
On to the next one now...🙃

I am very sorry to say that I aS very disappointed with this book. I tried a number of times to listen to it and found it to be filled with unneeded details of the most simplistic things. In my opinion the heroin was not depicted in a favourable light and came across too whingey and whiny.

Despite her fascination with Jack the Ripper, Detective Constable Lacey Flint has never worked a big case or seen a dead body up close. Until now…As she leaves a south London estate one night, she is horrified to find a woman has been viciously stabbed, right next to Lacey’s car. Thrown headlong into her first murder hunt, Lacey’s quiet life changes overnight. Then Lacey receives a familiar hand-delivered letter, written in red blood, and it is clear the police have a Ripper copycat on their hands.

Sadly the content of this book is very believable because all around the world we are witnessing court cases and enquiries where the innocent are taken advantage by those who have been put in place to care for them.

Well worth purchasing.
