Revenge... some cups spilleth over.
DS Lorne Warner and DI Katy Foster are investigating the murder of a man killed with an unusual weapon. The case takes a turn when two brothers disappear within the vicinity of the murder.
Lorne and Katy quickly determine that they may be after a group of serial killers out for their own sort of justice.
In Mel Comley's latest Justice series instalment, 'Tortured Justice', our beloved heroin DS Lorne Warner and her partner DI Katy Foster are faced with a very bizarre case.
First a man is found dead in the street, his cause of death unknown. His body displays very unusual injuries. Murder weapon unknown. After a few days, in the vicinity of the murder, two men - brothers - disappear without trace after leaving their working place. CCTV footage of the scene yields more questions than answers. Are these crimes linked?
When more men start to disappear off the face of the earth, Lorne knows that she's on a race against time to solve this riddle. What's happening to these men? Where are they? Are they being randomly selected or is there some motive? Are they being held captive or are they being murdered? Who is behind this?
From the outset, the reader knows who's the mind and what's the reason behind these crimes, but it certainly won't be easy for Lorne, Katy and their team to find all the pieces to solve the puzzle.
Apart from solving these disappearances and the murder, Lorne finds herself desperately helping a dog and her pups in distress and on the hunt for the heartless individual who abandoned them.
Like the rest of the Justice series, this was a very satisfying read that kept my interest piqued at all times. I highly recommend this series to anyone who loves to read good suspensful mysteries.
