|UK & Comm ex Can
A dark psychological thriller by one of the UK`s most exciting up and coming authors.
Sergeant Louise Nightingale is the model police officer; calm, composed and always in control. When her colleagues discover a connection between a series of sexual attacks and an online contest called The Game, Nightingale is used as bait to trap the prime suspect, but finds herself viciously attacked in the process. Whilst she escapes to a remote family home to recover, relieved to know that at least the perpetrator is behind bars, she suddenly finds herself the target of abusive phone calls and emails and her calm composure starts to crack.Nightingale’s attacker was only the student of a much more deadly opponent – a nameless faceless terror, intent on proving his prowess in the field. On the case is DCI Andrew Fenwick, following the trail of bodies left in the killer’s wake. It soon becomes clear that Nightingale is the killer’s ultimate victim and will stop at nothing until he exacts his cruel and calculated revenge. But finding himself frustratingly unable to get in contact with Nightingale, Fenwick battles against the clock, intent on finding her before the killer does.
