Official Summary: “While attending a crime scene on the outskirts of Maidstone, DI Kay Hunter makes a shocking discovery.
The victim has been brutally cut to pieces, his identity unknown.
When more body parts start turning up in the Kentish countryside, Kay realises the disturbing truth – a serial killer is at large and must be stopped at all costs.
With no motive for the murders and a killer who has gone undetected until now, Kay and her team of detectives must work fast to calm a terrified local population and a scornful media.
When a third victim is found, her investigation grows even more complicated.
As she begins to expose a dark underbelly to the county town, Kay and her team are pulled into a web of jealousy and intrigue that, if left unchecked, will soon claim another life.” – Goodreads
Review: The subtle humor was great in this one, had me smiling and giggling in a few places. It so sneakily put in that sometimes it catches you a little off guard, and just deflates the boringness to the case, and all the paperwork they have to work through. In a way, it keeps the story lighter, even though it a crime based book.
Loved seeing more of Adam, in this one you got to see him outside of the house interacting more with her work colleagues. It was a nice change, also added to the family feeling the Author has been building with the team.
You are always left guessing with the Author’s books. You never know who done it before the team does. As they work it out, you also work it out.

Reading Book 1 this month! We’ll chat! 😛
You wouldn’t expect humor in a police procedural, but you’re right, it would break up the boring stuff. Nice review Laura.
Thanks, well just adds that more Britishness to it as well.
