Publisher's Summary

Nobody can get into the mind of an erratic killer - except an unpredictable detective.

When a young man is found lying on a station platform with a hole in his head, DI Kate Young is called in to investigate the grisly murder. But the killing is no one-off. As bodies start to pile up, she is faced with what might be an impossible task - to hunt down a ruthless killer on a seemingly random rampage.

Meanwhile, Kate has her own demons to battle as she struggles to come to terms with her husband’s death. And she is hell-bent on exposing corruption within the force and bringing Superintendent John Dickson to justice. But with the trail of deception running deeper - and closer to home - than she could ever have imagined, she no longer knows who she can trust.

With her grip on reality slipping, Kate realises that maybe she and the killer are not so different after all. But time is running out and Kate is low on options. Can she catch the killer before she loses everything?

Will Kate Find Closure?

Mental health issues following a traumatic incident play a critical aspect of this story. While closure may have been found, this story line is getting tedious.

Difficult to finish

Although the story was worth it. Slow to start and Kate’s issues are a titch annoying. Narrator is clipped and a bit harsh.

*Kate and her Nemesis*

✨4.5 Stars✨

This third instalment of the Di Kate Young Series has the continual personal theme running where Kate is dealing with a personal loss and still trying to maintain her job. Albeit now having a small team of great officers, while she is proving herself up to the job.

This case is about a people who are being shot point blank to the head which appears to be motiveless random killings.

Kate is in a race against time because she is under pressure from a senior officer that she knows is not as white as can be who would want nothing more than to see her fail.

Will she get the culprit before more bodies pile up and the reason behind the shootings is like a reality check for her because she senses one thing in common with the suspect.

The ending is supercharged which could mean another book…..

Story spoilt by narrator

Good story spoilt by narrator who rushed it and spoke in clipped tone - almost in an angry voice.

Irritating narration

I love Carol Wyer books but seemingly not enough to listen to 8 plus hours of the shrill voice of Henrietta Meire. I just can’t believe the conversations in the book are meant to be spoken so unnaturally. I’ve never conversed with someone who speaks like that.
So sadly, it is too irritating to be able to finish the book.
