Old crimes don’t stay buried forever…
It’s high summer, and London sizzles in the grip of a heatwave. But when the body of young mother, Leanne Wyatt, is discovered in an East London park, the heat rises to boiling point for D.I. Matthew Denning. Under pressure to solve the case, and fast, he delves into Leanne’s history and finds that she was close to some dangerous individuals – could one of them have taken her life in an angry rage? But when another woman is found dead in similar circumstances, Denning is forced to consider that a killer stalks the capital’s streets.
But when young, ambitious, D.S. Molly Fisher, discovers a horrifying link to these deaths and a killing spree in South London a decade ago –a terrifying summer where young women died at the hands of a psychopath the press dubbed ‘The Bermondsey Ripper’, the case is blown wide open. Anthony Ferguson is serving a life sentence for the crimes, so are these new deaths the result of a copycat killer - or did the police convict the wrong man? Whatever the case, Denning and Fisher need to stop a killer in his tracks – before he sets his sights on them.
The launch of a gripping new crime thriller series featuring D.I. Matthew Denning and Constable Molly Fisher, Know No Evil will utterly engross fans of Ian Rankin, Angela Marsons and L.J. Ross.
This book is Graeme’s Debut Book.
Wow, I really enjoyed this book.
I loved Matt Denny and Molly Fisher. They really feel like real detectives that would be working today solving major crimes.
Molly Fisher is working is CID Drug crimes but her goal is to work for MIT. She becomes fascinated in a new case when a young woman is found dead, badly beaten. She has a hunch that this new killing is apart of an old crime. The serial killer, Ferguson AKA The Burdersy Killer. Who Killed Three Women 12 years ago.
She decides to go off by herself to follow her hunch. I love her passion, drive and determination for finding out what really happened. She is also very down to earth and battling personal problems at home with her boyfriend, Jon. She is not only a detective but she is a person anyone can relate to.
Matt Denning, he’s a breath of fresh air. He is cold faced, hard to read but also laid back and realistic.
He is an excellent DI who does everything by the book, follows every lead and keeps a very open mind with the investigation. While also battling to see his son, Jake who is diagnosed with ADHD and Autism. His mum, Claire dislikes Matt for leaving and divorcing her years before. He now faces a new challenge of Claire’s new boyfriend and feeling like he will take over his father role. You can tell he cares and loves his son and wants to be a good dad but also being an excellent detective.
The plot was super interesting and gripping. Women being murdered, extremely badly beaten, with no identification. Most quite women who don’t seem to have many friends and family.
It is a complex, intriguing, grabbing storyline that you can sink your teeth into. I was hooked from beginning to end. It is Well written and a quick read.
