Synopsis: A man is found dead in his bed, suffocated, covered in confetti and with his ring finger missing. Detective Rachel King informs his daughter and takes her to identify the body. But she’s never seen the man before in her life.
Then a second murder. This time a woman, Alison, also suffocated and with her finger severed and confetti strewn over her body.
The team desperately search for a link before anyone else dies.
Meanwhile, someone has been running a property scam, selling dream houses that will never be built.
The third in the series and I’m still not keen on the lead detective. She’s growing on me a bit but I still find her quite unlikeable. However, the storytelling is so good I don’t mind so much and am actually keen to see how my feelings change over the course of these stories. Very intrigued by the twist at the end and what it can mean for these characters. It’s another fast paced drama and I do like how all the relationships work together. It’s well written and easy to follow and I read it quite quickly which is a bit rare at the moment as I keep losing my reading joy. I have the next one to start so let’s see where the journey takes us.
