Book two of the Tangled Web Series focuses not only on the brutal kidnappings and murders of young women but also on DI Andrew “Ziggy” Thorne and his Major Investigations team.
The team is barely finished with one case when they start the next one… the body of a murdered young woman found in the park. Evidence proves the woman was killed in the park and her body left in a spot where it would be found quickly.
Progress is slow as leads are few. Ziggy is frustrated. Though his team is held in high regard in the department, it doesn’t stop his micromanaging boss from breathing down his neck, threatening to bring in another homicide team.
However, the stakes rise when another woman goes missing and she’s the best friend of the first victim.
Ziggy’s personal life isn’t ideal and his commitment to his job often gets in the way of spending time with his seven-year-old son. His ex-wife, Rachel, has no problem telling him what an awful father he is.
Deftly written, this read is written in multiple POVs, including the killer’s, who could not only be the poster child for mental illness but is just plain evil.
I enjoyed the satisfying ending until I was gobsmacked by the lead-in to book three. Are you kidding me? I need that book now! HA!
Great addition to the series! I’m definitely Team Ziggy!
Not all killers are who they first seem…
The mutilated body of a young female is found in a popular recreation ground in Leeds city centre. DI Ziggy Thornes and his team are at once assigned to close the case.
With little to no forensic evidence left at the scene at first Ziggy struggles to put the pieces together. When a second body turns up in the same place, Ziggy starts to feel the pressure from his bosses and the media as fear spreads through the city.
Realising that victims have been held captive prior to their deaths, Ziggy delves deeper and relentlessly chases down every lead, taking him close to breaking point.
When the investigation leads him dangerously close to home, will time run out before the tangled web of evil he’s uncovered destroys everything he holds dear?
