The killer is closer than you think..
It’s one thing to pull someone into the mystery and keep them hanging on trying to figure out the who what when where and how but it’s another thing entirely to make someone want to puke, to evoke that kind of response you need to be really good! Que me sitting here googling some words I wasn’t sure about, realising what they meant and looking set to lose my dinner, my partner sitting across from me wondered what was up and when I filled him in he was pretty grossed out, so round of applause to you Kierney Scott for evoking such a strong reaction. It didn’t even put me off in fact I had to head to twitter to applaud her before getting stuck back in and I didn’t put it down until I was finished.
As she saw his face for the first time, she knew he was going to kill her. She just didn’t know when.
Three young women are dead. Thousands of miles between them and nothing except the marks on their bodies to link them.
Detective Jess Bishop sees something that strikes fear into her heart: the similarities between this case and the one she’s spent her entire career trying to forget. Brilliant and methodical, Jess always plays by the rules. But she’s not the person anyone thinks she is. And she’ll do whatever she can to keep her secrets hidden.
As more bodies are found, it seems Jess’ past is coming back to haunt her. And with her partner, Jamison, back from two years undercover, she doesn’t know if she can still trust him.
When the hunt goes cold, Jess knows she has to confront her past in order to catch the killer, even if that means making herself the bait…
I saw this book all over twitter and was really interested in it, I love a good Detective series but I’m a sucker for ones that have their own secrets too! I requested a copy on Netgalley and was lucky enough to receive one, I started reading it straight away and was immediately hooked. Detective Jess Bishop is hunting a killer but the more she looks at the case the more connections she sees to her past. I liked the flashbacks to her childhood as her secrets start to unravel, her social awkwardness is so relatable and her total obliviousness to how others feel about her makes you want to scream.
Twice I thought I had the killer nailed but then something else would happen and I would second guess myself, I love that! nothing worse than guessing who the killer is early on and being totally right. Every time Jamison spoke I was reminded of Morgan from Criminal minds, just needed to put baby in front of girl and it would have been a real baby gurl voice going through my head.
I really enjoyed this book, I’m glad to hear there will be more books in this series because I’d like see how the relationships develop after everything that has happened, I feel like I’ve invested time and emotion into these characters and I just want the best for them. also I want to see what other challenges and gruesome crimes they face.
Now You See Me by Kierney Scott will be published on 27/11/17 with Bookouture.
