Publisher's Summary

DCI Jack Hawksworth is back, working on a high-profile case breaking in London. A calculating serial killer is on the loose, committing the most gruesome of murders as he 'trophies' the faces of his victims. With each new atrocity, the public and police force are getting more desperate for results.  

Hawk pulls together a strong and experienced task force who soon find themselves caught up in a murky world of illegal immigrants and human organ trading. As he struggles to find any sort of link between the victims, Jack identifies something unique about the most recent corpse, and things suddenly get very personal. 

From the seedy underbelly of London's back streets and New Scotland Yard to the dangerous frontiers of modern medicine, this is a gripping crime thriller from a powerhouse Australian author.

Good but

Was disappointed by the naration..male voices great but female voices were not good. They all sounded Blakey to me and unless they used the name you didn’t know who was talking.
I liked the story and the characters were interesting.

Predictable

Guessed the “baddie” and those associated with the murders. Unfortunately found this book utterly predictable and not up to the standard of her previous book, which I enjoyed.

If you’re looking for plot twists and surprises from the story and characters, don’t bother with this one!
