You don’t know him. But he knows you.

Soon he would be able to touch her, to feel the warmth of her blood. And when the time came, nothing would stop him.

As D.C. Jennifer Knight investigates a routine stabbing in the quiet town of Haven, she is shocked at what seems like a personal message from beyond the grave.
When more bodies are found, Jennifer is convinced the killings are somehow linked. What she discovers is more chilling than she could possibly imagine. The murders mirror those of the notorious Grim Reaper – from over twenty years ago. A killer her mother helped convict.

Jennifer can no longer ignore the personal connection. Is there a copycat killer at work? Was the wrong man convicted? Or is there something more sinister at play …

With her mother’s terrifying legacy spiralling out of control, Jennifer must look into her own dark past in a fight not only to stop a killer – but to save herself and those she loves.
My thoughts on this book....
The title and cover grabbed my attention.
The story and writing style kept me glued to the pages.

The story has a rather unique edge to it, combining thriller and paranormal is not new, combining paranormal where the protagonist is not the strongest which in 300 years, the best warlock in 50 generations etc, that is new.
Our DC is very human and tries to run from the voices in her head as fast as from her past which is all coming to a rather heart stopping cliff end with a serial killer known as the Grim Reaper.

This book is an easy read. Given at times the writing is a bit disjointed especially in the last part of the story but this is nothing that cannot be fixed or even overlooked. I am usually a stickler for flow and the bit of disjointedness faded against the very strong plot and subplot line.

A good read. Try it and I am sure you will agree.

A four pup read all the way!
Oh and she lives in Ireland, that wins her more points.
