I received a free kindle copy of Follow the Leader (DS Allie Shenton #2) by Mel Sherratt, published by Amazon Publishing from NetGalley in exchange for a fair review.
I gave this suspense-thriller five stars because it kept my attention.
The killer is almost pitiable. And would have been had he not been so brutal & prolific. Here's one sentence that sums up his beliefs. "All that talk & all those letters about how he wanted forgiveness--he knew it was all lies."
I found several story lines woven throughout this book. Some of them were about love, in many forms, spousal, siblings, for money & of course lack of love as well.
DS Allie Shenton's relationship with her permanently damaged sister Karen is foremost. The barbaric attack that left her that way interferes with the multiple murder investigation.
Can Allie & her team find this killer before he kills more? Is Allie the next victim?
