My rating: 5 of 5 stars
When police are called to a murder scene in the Liverpool suburbs, even the most jaded officers are disturbed by what they find. DS Nathan Cody, still bearing the scars of an undercover mission that went horrifyingly wrong, is put on the case. But the police have no leads, except the body of the bird – and the victim’s missing eyes. And then the killer strikes again, and Cody realises the threat isn’t to the people of Liverpool after all – it’s to the police.
I found this book languishing at the bottom of my TBR pile and now I wonder how on earth I missed it! What a gem of a book, a great read that sucks you in and only spits you out at the end of the book suitably exhausted and fulfilled. Gritty, dark, determined Cody reflects the backdrop of Liverpool against which the book is set. I see the second book in the series is to be released in April and I for one can’t wait!
