Before The Creeper and Cage of Bones, Tania Carver gave us this debut thriller about a horrific kind of serial killer. A shocking double murder greets Detective Inspector Philip Brennan when he is called to a flat in Colchester: two women have been viciously slashed—one is on the floor and one is tied to a bed, her womb cut open and her unborn child stolen. But this is now the third time Phil and his team have encountered such a scene. When psychologist Marina Esposito is brought in to analyze these atrocities, Phil has to put aside his feelings about their shared past and get on with the job if they are going to find the killer before another mother is butchered.
"With a plot that snares from the start, Carver's debut novel sets the crime thriller bar high."—Irish Examiner
