PUBLISHERS BLURB

Brought up believing that sex is the devil’s work, a killer only finds release once he has saved his victim’s souls. Abiding by his vision, he marks them as his. A gift to guide his chosen ones on the rightful path to redemption.

Detective Inspector Paolo Sterling is out to stop him, but Paolo has problems of his own. Hunting down the killer as the death toll rises, the lines soon blur between Paolo’s personal and professional lives.

MY REVIEW

This is the first in The DI Sterling series from Lorraine Mace.

Detective Inspector Paolo Sterling is a committed police officer to the point where his marriage is over and family life is a mess….

Bodies of prostitutes are being found, mutilated and dumped and he is determined to catch the killer before further women are murdered….

With chapters from the murderers perspective this gives an insight into his religious mania, his state of mind and gruesome details of his kills…

Full of interesting and believable characters with its clever background stories giving them a feeling of reality.

Paolo’s is quite a complex character and his team are great and work well together….will they manage to catch their prey?

I really enjoyed this compelling thriller and will be looking out for the next in the series…and I can thoroughly recommend it for anyone who enjoys a crime thriller.
