Pop Goes The Weasel opening line: The fog crept in from the sea, suffocating the city.
This book follows on from a previous novel, and it took me quite some time to work out what had happened before. I find this the most frustrating thing when I have not read the first book in a series, when the author relies too much on what has happened in the past, assuming the reader will know. Once I had got over that hurdle I really enjoyed this book. Here Detective Inspector Helen Grace is chasing a serial killer and caught up in this drama is her relationship with people who survived the last case with her, an adopted child, her own needs and a new boss who is intent on derailing her.
This killer is attacking men who lead a double life, and until the team can work out the reason why they will not catch her, for the one thing they know for sure, it is a woman who is brutally murdering men who stray from their marriages.
