There is some lovely imagery within this story (for ‘lovely’, please bear in mind that I mean ‘dark and disturbed’!) and I found myself rapidly absorbed by the story.
The ‘love heart killer’ is a cold, calculating and evil monster who leaves his victims painstakingly posed – publicly and still alive…but dying fast.
Amy has an interesting back story that media mogul Mr Black finds fascinating and he can’t help giving away his darker side when they meet – will this ultimately lead to his or her downfall?
Super addictive and fast paced, Left for Dead most definitely left me wanting more.
I have loved meeting DI Amy Winter – I now very much need to go back and read books 1 and 2 in this series! Much like Mr Black, I need to more about Poppy Grimes! Her early life and her parents sound horribly fascinating.
My thanks to Sarah from @BOTBSPublicity for letting me take part in this tour.
More about the author:
Shopping with her sister, DI Amy Winter is admiring a Valentine’s Day window display of a perfect bride encrusted in diamonds and resplendent in lace—until she notices blood oozing from the mannequin’s mouth.
This is no stunt. A post-mortem reveals the victim was left to die on her macabre throne for all to see. When a second victim is found, it emerges that both women were ‘Sugar Babes’ arranging dates with older men online—and Amy finds herself hunting an accomplished psychopath.
As she tracks down the killer, Amy’s instincts go into overdrive when the charismatic head of the agency behind the display makes no attempt to hide his fascination with her serial-killer parents. What exactly does he want from Amy? With her own world in freefall as her biological mother, Lillian Grimes, appeals her conviction, Amy pushes the boundaries of police procedure when a third ‘Sugar Babe’ disappears… Is she as much at risk as the killer’s victims?
