Happy publication day to Emma Kavanagh who’s twisty new novel To Catch A Killer is out today.
NO ONE KNOWS THE MIND OF A KILLER LIKE EMMA KAVANAGH.
I’ve been watching you DS Alice Parr.
I saw you trying to save the poor young woman you found in the park.
The woman I tried to kill.
I’ve been waiting for you to find her family. To find someone who cares about her.
But you can’t can you?
You’ve never had a case like this.
I know everything about you. You know nothing about me.
Even though I’m the man you’re looking for.
And you will never catch me…
To Catch A Killer is a twisty crime novel from Emma Kavanagh where nothing is as it seems. The book does have a complicated plot, but it is immensely enjoyable, and the suspense never lets up. It also sets the scene perfectly for the next book in the series. And I really am hoping that there is going to be another book.
Straight away we are thrown into the midst of a crime scene which is just taking place. A woman has been brutally attacked in a London park, and the police may have just arrived in time to save her. But who would have the guts to attack someone in broad daylight with such a high risk of being seen? What follows on from this point is an intense ride as the police try to track down the woman’s attacker, but they soon begin to realise that this case isn’t going to be straightforward at all.
Having read some of Emma Kavanagh’s previous work, this did feel to me as though she has gone in a slightly different direction to what she has written before. Her latest book moves along at a very high-octane pace as the police begin to piece together who their victim is and who the attacker might be, and we start to learn some very disturbing details. This book was so twisty. I had so many ideas going around inside my head as I tried to think just what was going on here. Emma Kavanagh will have you thinking one way about her characters and then she’ll throw a new twist in that will completely throw you off course, it really did make it a head-spin of a read.
DS Alice Parr is the lead detective in the case. We know that she has suffered from devastating events in the past, she is someone who I took some time to warm to but once I did, I was rooting for her to get the results she was after. I loved her work colleague Polly who added some brilliant humour to the book, I thought she was the perfect friend for Alice to have around.
Immensely enjoyable with some killer twits, To Catch A Killer is perfect for thriller seekers who like a book to leave their head in a spin. Well done, Emma Kavanagh, I’m looking forward to reading the next book in the series.
