Author Mel Comley has brought DI Hero Nelson back to her readers in another fast-paced, edge-of-your-seat thriller. Though third in the series, this book can very well be read as a standalone.
When Hero is called to a double homicide scene, he's shocked to discover that the victims are two fellow police officers, one of whom a close friend of his. The officers were killed in cold blood on the road while on duty. This horrific event is immediately followed by a murder and robbery at a local post office. The postmaster's murder shows clear signs of a very sick mind running loose in town. What's happening? Was this the deed of the same killer who murdered the police officers? When the number of post-office murders increases very rapidly, Hero and his team find themselves on a race against time to track down this madman before more innocent people are killed. But before this could happen, the killer plays his final card and this gives the case a whole new dimension...
WOW! What a tension-packed explosive book this is. Mel Comley never disappoints but with this one she truly excels. I wonder how the author manages to pack in so much action, drama and suspense in one book. The plot is twisty and clever with several terrifying, heart-pumping scenes that made me wince and bite my knuckles. I found myself frantically swiping my kindle as I wanted to know if and how Hero will manage to capture the killer. Reading some of the scenes I wished I could grab this cruel, sadistic killer and throttle him with my own bare hands.
This book kept me on edge throughout and I ended up devouring it in just one sitting. The author has once again awarded her readers with non-stop action, intrigue and suspense, all together in another great instalment that's guaranteed to keep every thriller lover entertained from start to finish. Well done! Highly recommended!
With thanks to the author for an ARC of this book which I voluntarily accepted to read and review.
