    Great read...enjoyed the storyline and characters interaction. Would be interested in seeing the characters grow and mature somewhat. They seem too damaged especially the female lead and it feels a bit grim. While dealing with disturbing cases it makes sense that it will be subdued but give them a path to some happiness.

    Over the Top

    This is my second book of this series. I loved the first one but had a harder time getting into this one. It just took longer. The story was completely over the top but familiar at the same time. I almost feel I've read this one before. Regardless, once I did get into this one, about 50% through, I read through it quickly and really enjoyed it. No matter how out there it seemed.

    A fantastic addition to the series

    A boy trapped in a container, a woman trapped in a deadly sex ring and a body with its head and organs missing – just another day at work for DI’s Ava Turner and Luc Callanach. Helen Field’s DI Callanach series is ‘Perfect’ for me. Having read all 5 of the previous books I was excited to read the next instalment and was certainly not disappointed! Perfect Kill (how have we not had this title yet?) has a large, arching plot with many layers which all come together for a high stakes conclusion that I couldn’t put down. The subject matter is dark with human trafficking, organ harvesting, sex rings and even a deadly competitive ‘race’. There are a lot of things explored here but they all linked well and the jumps between France and Scotland worked really seamlessly and never felt forced or confusing. I liked the occasional jump in perspective to Elenuta’s point of view and felt her character was really well-rounded and easy to sympathise for. Having read the other books there is also a lot of character development in these books of the well-crafted characters of Ava, Luc and Natasha which is certainly appreciated – however, I do think if it’s your first read of this series you wont feel like you are missing too much as the standalone parts of the plot are so interesting. The end of the book also sets up a really interesting dynamic for future books as well that I will be on the lookout for with anticipation. On another note I also really enjoyed the Christmas dinner analogy about how a novel is produced and everyone comes together to get it published in the author acknowledgements! Overall I really loved Perfect Kill – a worthy addition to a fantastic series and I’m looking forward to the next one already! Thank you to NetGalley & Avon Books UK for the chance to read the ARC in exchange for an honest review.

    Gory police procedural novel

    Edinburgh student Bart Campbell awakes to find himself in a shipping container and tied down. He doesn’t remember how he got there or where he is going but he realises that nothing good can come from his situation. DI Luc Callanach is working with Interpol in Paris, France looking into an illegal organ transplant operation when he comes across an emptied body. The body belongs to Edinburgh resident Malcolm Reilly who was recently reported missing by his family. He asks DCI Ava Turner who works for Major Investigation Team (MIT) in Edinburgh to speak to the family and to let them know what has happened to him. DCI Turner is also working on the case of a man shot dead in his home in a shady part of Edinburgh. The body has been left but someone has tried to clean the area around it, why? Could the three cases be linked somehow? Perfect Kill is the sixth book in the ‘Perfect’ series by Helen Fields but the first book in the series that I have read. To be honest I didn’t even realise that it was the sixth in the series until I read it on Goodreads. I can confirm it can be read as a standalone as I never felt like I had missed out or didn’t understand any sections. The plot is quite sinister in places and as well as the illegal organ operation there is also a prostitution ring in Edinburgh going on right under the detective’s noses and some of the scenes within in this subplot can get a little full-on, so be warned if women being attacked and killed for sport is a trigger for you. The writing is superb and had me invested in the story from the very beginning. I was eager to know would Bart make it home ever again or would Elenuta, one of the prostitutes ever get away from the criminals keeping her and forcing her to entertain men daily. This is one of those books that had me on the edge of my seat. It was horrific at times to read but that was mainly down to how realistic it was and how believable the situations were. I loved how eventually the cases worked their way together and also the moments of lightheartedness throughout which always came at a welcome moment. The characters were plausible and likeable. I enjoyed both DI Callanach and DCI Turner’s working styles, even if they were completely different from one another. I also appreciated the setting and scenery of both Edinburgh and Paris. If you are a fan of police procedural novels that have a more gritty, gory side to them then this is the book to read. I am now off to check out the others in the series.
