 Killing for Keeps  cover


Synopsis:


THEY KNOW HE'S COMING

Two brothers from the same criminal family die within hours of each other, five miles apart, one on the edge of a Newcastle industrial estate, the other in a busy A & E department of a local hospital, unseen by the triage team. Both victims have suffered horrific injuries. Who wanted them dead? Will they kill again? Investigating these brutal and bloody killings leads DCI Kate Daniels to break some rules, putting her career as well as her life on the line.

As the body count rises in the worst torture case Northumbria Police has ever seen, the focus of the enquiry switches, first to Glasgow and then to Europe ending in a confrontation with a dangerous offender hell-bent on revenge.


Review:

This is the fifth book in the Kate Daniels series and I think it is my favorite! There are more twists and turners and I ended up reading it in one sitting! The book picks up after the events of the last book (moent to Murder),so the reader feels a true continuity, as if the events of the last book are real. Kate is  a blood hound on the scent to discover the cause and suspect of the murders, even if it means traveling abroad to hunt down leads. This is a perfect Summer read, totally engrossing, Her team may question how she solves murders, but they know she can, and offer her their total support, even if it can be deadly. This is NOT the book to miss in this series!
