DC Emma Angel must catch a killer who leaves no clues while DCI Rob Haines comes to terms with the end of his career.
A ruthless murderer is stalking the streets of seaside town Bradwick. With her department in chaos, Emma Angel has promised her boss that they can catch him, but he kills at random in a variety of different ways. The only common factors are that he displays the bodies in grotesque set pieces and a link to a fifteen year old missing child case.
Meanwhile, DCI Rob Haines must deal with the fall out from his injury sustained during a drug raid. Can he keep the secrets of his past and still leave his job with his honour intact? Recruited by Emma to help with the case, he sees it as his last chance to prove he can still be a policeman.
Even when they work out what motivates the killer, Emma needs to go against her natural instincts and rely on her team when she’s not even sure she trusts them.
The Wrong Victim is the second Angel and Haines mystery. Buy it today and return to the world of Wootenshire and dive into a gruesome crime novel.

Rating Report
Plot/Narrative

The Wrong Victims is the second in the Angel & Haines series which is set in Wootenshire.

DC Emma Angel is back at work after a drug raid with a completely new CID team. Her old Boss DCI Rob Haines is having to live with the fact his career is over after an injury during the raid. But Emma recruits him to help with the case. And Haines is hoping this will support him becoming a policeman again.

The new CID team are dealing with a murderer who is ferocious, formidable, gruesome who is committing some egregious, grotesque and dark homicides which are somehow linked to an old cold missing person case.

Although this is a series, this is the first book I have read. But it can definitely be read as standalone as Graham provides a good backstory in this. But I would still start with Book 1.

The plot is bloody fantastic. The murderer is one sick puppy who honestly commits the most abhorrent, gut-churning and monstrous murders. This book is grisly and spine-chilling with so many twists and turns. It is a real page-turner which I read in two sittings.

4 stars
Characters

DC Emma Angel is a fierce, strong-willed female character. Who prefers working by herself but in this book has to learn to work and trust her new CID colleagues. I absolutely fell in love with Emma as a character.

4 stars
Writing Style/Pacing

Graham H Miller is a wonderful writer who has created interesting, dark and gruesome crimes with police corruption and wonderfully created characters. His writing style is awesome. He has created some defined characters which are flawed and dishonest. He has a distinctive writing voice.

About Graham H. Miller

Graham H Miller has been writing since his teenage years when he had a scenario printed in a role playing magazine. Since then he’s written articles, guest posts, unpublished novels and a book on Pagan subjects. Born in Surrey, he lived in Kent for over 20 years before settling in South Wales. His brain is always at work, with more ideas than time. He is a house-husband proudly perpetuating the stereotype by writing books while his three boys are at school. He has two blogs that are erratically updated – one about life as father to three special boys and the other covering his thoughts on writing and the publishing process. He is fascinated by everything including prehistory, classic cars, anything Viking and learning Welsh. He is older than he thinks he is!
