From the moment I laid eyes on the cover of A COLD COLD HEART I couldn’t wait to read it. It is one of those covers that has read me written all over it. I have to say the author doesn’t disappoint with this cracking page turner. Which grabs you from the start unfortunately for me life got in the way and this book took me two sittings to read. But If it hadn’t I know for a fact that I would of devoured it in one sitting. I was stitching to find out what was going to happen next.
Having read the author’s previous book’s I was familiar with the DI Gravel so for me it was nice to get to know him more.For those of you that haven’t read any of John’s books before I can assure you this can be read has a standalone.
In this story DI Gravel on the hunt for one sick and twisted serial killer. But then things take a turn for the worse when Emily DI Gravel’s daughter ends up his latest victim and we follow a story of cat and mouse.
With the authors vivid and gruesome descriptions that made me squirm. This isn’t for the fainthearted, I should add. This is a fast paced easy read that with characters that jump out the pages, where I could clearly hear their voices in my head. I adored Detective Sergeant Laura Kesey and I am looking forward to finding out more about her in the next book.
I loved how the chapters alternate from the investigation to the serial killer each chapter leaves you hanging. This is certainly one nail biting read that will keep you on the edge of your sit. which I highly recommend giving it 4.5 stars.
