    chilling and disturbing crime novel

    This was an excellent crime novel, that – apart from being a fast paced, riveting read – brings up some very disturbing subjects. You may forget the individual police characters (not that they are under-developed, or lacking in any way at all), but what happens in the book will remain with you a very long time. A woman is found, severely beaten and nearly drowned in the water. Another body (not so lucky) is found nearby. She won’t tell the police who she is, who he is, or what occurred. She disappears from hospital – then pops up again, looking like nothing has happened. You think you know what is going on – domestic abuse, bad husband, cop taking it all too personally – but that is not the half of it. Throughout all the book is a pervading sense of fear. No-one will talk. The victims – and there are many – are broken by what they experienced (if they are still alive). They blame themselves: for not fighting back, for not taking warnings seriously, for not living up to expectations …. The horror of what the victims go through – not just the actual crime(s) which are thankfully not dwelt on so much, but the never-ending aftermath – is dealt with by the author with so much empathy, that you are forced to take part of it into your own being. “Back then, I didn’t know the depths of R’s evil. I still had a rose-tinted view of him, as if somehow if I loved him enough that would change him, but it never did. All it did was change me into a person I can barely stand to look at. I am all but erased – changing a little each day to accommodate his demands but never being quite good enough” The person behind the crime is one of the most evil people ever to appear in a crime novel. He believes himself to be invincible – and you feel that way too. All though not everything is wrapped up at the end (could it ever be?), I could not have ever forgiven the author if she had not ended it the way she did. An outstanding book – but a really distressing read. I received this copy from the publisher via NetGalley in exchange for an honest review

    Much more powerful than I anticipated

    This book tackles a serious issue that rarely gets talked about with depth and understanding. It becomes clear as you get into the book that this author goes deeper than a lot of others in this genre.

    Having read all books by Katerina I looked forward to this with relish and it sure didnt disappoint.

    Another fantastic read by K. DIAMOND. I love reading about the main characters role in the police and her personal relationships. I couldnt read this fast enough. It starts with 2 people being found in a river, 1 dead, the other alive but who doesnt have any memory of what happened. it's up to Imogen an Adrian (the main characters and cops) to find out but Adrian takes the case personally at his own peril, and things take a twisted turn for him. Can he ever recover? Will his relationship with Imogen ever be the same? You need to read and find out. Cant wait for her next installment. Fantastic read even if the issues in it are somewhat difficult to swallow.

    surprise ending

    Thank you to Netgalley, the publisher and the author for the opportunity to read a complimentary copy of this book in return for review based upon my honest opinion. This is the 6th book in the DS Imogen Grey series. I have not read any of the other books, but feel that this did not take away from my enjoyment of this book, it could easily be read as a stand-alone although I felt that knowing more about the background of the characters would have been helpful. In this book we find Imogen and her partner DS Miles investigating the case of a woman who is found clinging to life in the water by Miles. The woman claims that she does not know who she is, and their suspicion is further raised when another body, this time a man, is found not far from where hers was in the water this one deceased. This case takes us into some pretty deep and dark areas, with a depraved madman with a sense of over importance. DS Miles finds himself in trying to cope with a life changing, possibly life-shattering incident and try to keep it all together. Imogen starts to wonder if their relationship has come to an end as she starts to doubt their ability to partner one another in a professional, let alone personal manner as he spirals out of control. The ending of the book was twisty and I didn’t see it coming but also didn’t find the overall story held my interest as much as I wanted it to. Maybe if I had read the earlier books I would have felt more invested in the characters.
