"At the end of the day, Foxy, we're not all that different, really. I'm going to enjoy working with you."
Detective Alex Fox now had positive proof that The Escape Artist was not only in New York, but monitoring her every move. As a member of the newly formed Special Investigations unit of the NYPD, she's finally in a position to find him, put an end to his villainous crimes and avenge her sister's brutal murder.
When the mutilated bodies of three teenage runaways are recovered, and with the abduction of former Commander Patterson, Alex is forced to put her plans on hold, as the unit is called in to investigate these horrendous crimes. With the two cases running side by side, Alex and her team are stretched to the limits in this edge-of-your-seat thriller.
Detective Alex Fox is back in this second full-length Deception thriller by fab duo Mel Comley and Linda Prather.
As per the previous instalments, this fast-paced book is sure to get your adrenaline pumping around your body.
A runaway girl is snatched from the road and the mutilated bodies of three unidentified girls are fished out of a river. Despite forming part of the newly formed Special Investigations Unit, with more means and power to track down and finally catch The Escape Artist, Alex Fox is forced to push her revenge to the side and concentrate on this new alarming case. She and the rest of the team must identify these girls and find out who has murdered and mutilated them? Could The Escape Artist have anything to do with this crime? What's sure is that he's never far away. With his attention focused entirely on Alex, he's much, much closer to her than she thinks.
As the story progresses, more murder victims are found, but are these connected to the three girls, or not? Alex Fox is desperate to solve the case, but the web harbouring the killers is widely spread and tangled and it won't be easy getting to its centre. And when Alex's nearest and dearest are targeted, the tension and urgency of the situation increase tenfold, leading to a devastating, heart-pounding finale.
Brimful with many twisted, sick characters you don't want to mess with, unwavering suspense, twists and turns and several OMG moments that made my hand instinctively cover my mouth, this is another fantastic addition to this addictive series. I really enjoyed it and couldn't read it fast enough. I am now looking forward to the next one. My only concern is that it seems the next book will be the last one in the series. I really hope I'm not correct!
With thanks to the authors for an ARC of this fab book which I happily accepted to read and review.
