Publisher's Summary

A victim on display. A detective on the rails.

Shopping with her sister, DI Amy Winter is admiring a Valentine’s Day window display of a perfect bride encrusted in diamonds and resplendent in lace - until she notices blood oozing from the mannequin’s mouth. 

This is no stunt. A post-mortem reveals the victim was left to die on her macabre throne for all to see. When a second victim is found, it emerges that both women were "Sugar Babes" arranging dates with older men online - and Amy finds herself hunting an accomplished psychopath. 

As she tracks down the killer, Amy’s instincts go into overdrive when the charismatic head of the agency behind the display makes no attempt to hide his fascination with her serial-killer parents. What exactly does he want from Amy? With her own world in freefall as her biological mother, Lillian Grimes, appeals her conviction, Amy pushes the boundaries of police procedure when a third "Sugar Babe" disappears...Is she as much at risk as the killer’s victims?

Best Amy Winter Yet!!

This third installment of the DI Amy Winter series is the best so far. The first two books were phenomenal, but this one had me hooked from the first chapter. It was so spellbinding, I finished it in one day.

The narrator was excellent and I am eagerly awaiting for the next book. I hope that one day Lillian finally gets what's coming to her.

Engrossing series

I can’t wait for the next book. These are well written and totally engrossing stories that are hard to put down. The characters are wonderfully described. Thank you, Carline Mitchell.

Slow

This is book 3 of the series. I have only read nook 1 so far. The story overall is pretty good. My problem is that it took too long to get to the point. They tell you who the bad guy is and what he has done, but there is so much side story that I got bored. Perhaps it is my problem, as of this reading I have read 89 books this year and it is only July. I maybe a little burned out. There is a pandemic and the only other activity for me is house work, which I refuse to consider.

RECOMMENDATION: READ IT.

I Loved this Series

Every book was interesting with it's own great story. It was fun to come across some of the same characters and then meet new ones. I really hope there is another book coming. It was really a good mystery and I was drawn in quickly and couldn't wait to get back to the story especailly toward the end when the excitement grew. The narrator was excellent, sometimes I forget it is the same person doing all the characters. Thanks for such a good listen. Thanks to Audible for always keeping me company with great entertainment.

I love the Amy Winters series

This is another great thriller The back story of Amy’s is brilliant and gives great scope for more great storylines. I await the next one with anticipation. I also would like to say Elizabeth Knowelden is great as the narrator.

Left for Dead

The twist in this one surprised me. The killer gets off on the death of his victims, but it’s why he has this specific ritual that will surprise you. Wanting to escape her past the lead officer chose this life to put away killers. But her family is thrown into her face often. The story does drag on a bit. The narration is nice and easy to listen to.

Very entertaining

A very enjoyable third instalment of this series. Although it’s yet another police officer who flouts the rules of collecting evidence and police procedures with impunity. But then it’s fiction so I’ll get over it!

Completely unlikely scenario

Completely unlikely scenario with a DI who would never be tolerated in life, going her own dangerous way, and only getting away with it by sleeping with her DCI who is soft! I won’t read another by this author.
