The Jigsaw Man by Nadine Matheson

4 Stars from me

DI Angelica Henley was a fab character to follow as she tried to catch The Jigsaw Man, her passion for her job was wonderful and the conflict with her homelife felt all too real.

Well, I say The Jigsaw Man, but I can’t be him as he is in prison – where he has been since Henley’s last brush with him… from which she very much bears the physical and emotional scars.

So, if he is still inside, who is killing people in his style – and why?

This reads like a very accomplished crime thriller series and even found myself quite liking the oh so creepy Peter Olivier!

Blurb: Imitation is the sincerest form of flattery…

When body parts are found on the banks of the River Thames in Deptford, DI Angelica Henley is tasked with finding the killer. Eerie echoes of previous crimes lead Henley to question Peter Olivier, aka The Jigsaw Killer, who is currently serving a life sentence for a series of horrific murders.

When a severed head is delivered to Henley’s home, she realises that the copycat is taking a personal interest in her and that the victims have not been chosen at random.

To catch the killer, Henley must confront her own demons – and when Olivier escapes from prison, she finds herself up against not one serial killer, but two.
