I am delighted to share my review with you today on Blog Tour for The Ice Killer by Ross Greenwood
Once, her heart was empty. Now it’s filled with ice…
Ellen’s therapist told her to forget the past, but the life she’s left with is boring. All she wants is to be happy and normal, but the approaching long bleak nights of winter loom heavy before her, especially as she’ll be alone.
But when the secrets her mother put in place to protect her are exposed, Ellen learns the frightening truth. Her history is darker than she imagined. She’s not who she thinks she is, and the real her is a very different person to the one that others have mistreated and exploited.
If there’s hope of a future, Ellen must find answers about the past, and the new Ellen is less forgiving. This winter, there will be more than just discontent, and DI Barton will struggle in his hardest case to date.
How can he find the truth when all the victims and witnesses are dead?
There I was thinking this was going to be the last book in a trilogy. Until the author signs a contract for another two books…woo hoo. I cannot begin to tell you how happy I am about this.
I have read all of the authors books This series is definitely the best.
The story starts off slowly has the author draws you in to the mind of The Ice Killer which is told from first person. Building the character up.
Then alternates between the characters. An Ice Killer with a dark and twisted mind. When we learn why, has the story unfolds. The book explores mental health issues and you cannot help but sympathise with Ellen. The characterisation is brilliant and of course plenty of dark humour. The banter is brilliant.
The Ice Killer is a gripping read with each chapter leaving you wanting more. Just one more chapter I kept telling myself and before I knew it I had devoured it. The Ice Killer is a well written clever story. Which I highly recommend. Fans of SweetPea by C.J. Skuse will love this book.
