Publisher's Summary

A man's body is found on a canal towpath. In his pocket, a magnetic letter in the shape of an E.

Days later, a second victim is found, this time with the letter V tucked into her clothing.

As the body count rises, the eerie, childlike clues point to a pattern that sends DS Allie Shenton and her colleagues into full alert.

The race is on. Allie and the team must work quickly to determine where the killer will strike next. The rules are simple but deadly - to catch the killer, they must follow the leader.

From the acclaimed author of Taunting the Dead comes a flesh-creeping tale of a child's game with a terrifying, grown-up twist. This is the second book in the DS Allie Shenton series but can be enjoyed as a stand-alone story.

Better than the first book

This installment was far better than the first. It wasn't filled with unnecessary sex and the detective sergeant acted more professional. I'm hopeful the next will continue on this path.

A Weak Alphabet Soup of a Story

How could the solution to this mystery be so transparent to me. . . but the cops couldn't figure it out? The premise was somewhat interesting, but it became predictable and a bit redundant as the story unfolded. Ultimately, a boy who was bullied by his peers and a parent extracts revenge decades later, announcing his plan through clues left on the victims in the form of plastic alphabet letters. In addition, the author wove in another completely unconnected story, which seems to be the set up for the next book. In the end, it was like eating watery soup. Warm and momentarily filling, but not a lasting satisfaction. That said, it is a bargain book and since you get what you pay for, an okay deal from my perspective.

Keeps Your Attention

The main character, Decker is on the case again and bad guys look out. Story moved along but occasionally I knew the antagonist before he was mentioned in story. Predictable, but interesting enough to keep your attention.

Gripping

I chose 5 stars because it kept me thoroughly entertained throughout the entirety of the book. I would recommend this book to anyone looking for a good mystery. I look forward to seeing what happens next in Ally's life!

Corny but listenable.

Narrator has odd pronunciation and syntax at times. Story is ok, nothing ground breaking but the dialogue is generally awful! Characters are well drawn though and the pace is good.

Annoying narrator...

I really hate it when they change the narrator in a series. We get used to their voices being associated with the characters and sorry to be a cow, but she was so much worse than the original that I had to grit my teeth to get to the end ughh not sure I can face book 3 now

another atrocious narrator

Love the book, but my audio experience totally ruined by the narrator. Time someone actually to the people they are using... I will never buy an Audible narration by this woman.

Brilliant

Loved this book but changed from Audible to Kindle half way through. Why on earth get someone to narrate this book who couldn’t pronounce V? I couldn’t understand the reasoning behind ebe being a name and it was only when the word dubet came up I cottoned on. Apart from this seriously ridiculous flaw, I really did enjoy the narrative and have already downloaded the next book.

The narrator is awful, truly awful.

Why change the narrator after a successful first novel? Anne has one of the most annoying voices/pronunciation traits I have heard on Audible.

I have the next in the series through Kindle Unlimited, but would never pay for anything read by her.

Story is OK, but tends towards misandry. Too many bitchy women thinking it’s OK to carry on in selfish ways and sit around scrounging off their men.

I ended up reading rather than listening

I agree wholeheartedly with another review, why change the narrator, the first book was great. Whilst I enjoyed the story line of this book very much, the narrator was so irritating I had to switch to reading it instead. I hate giving a bad review on performance because it seems so much more personal, but the voice just did not fit the story I am sorry! It almost put me off getting the 3rd book, but I have decided to buy it again to just read and not listen to.

Best book by far this year!

Loved the book. it kept you enthralled all the way through.
It showed an insight into each character and the reason why the main character did what he did!

Good but sad

A good story with a good plot but is sadly very close to reality, with the killer. Like the lead detectives back story too
