Bramfield, near Leeds, a sleepy little market town nestled on the borders of West and North Yorkshire. Detectives Stewart Gardener and Sean Reilly discover the naked corpse of Alex Wilson, nailed to the wall of a cellar in his uncle’s hardware store. His lips are sewn together and his body bears only one mark, a fresh scar near his abdomen.
Within forty-eight hours, their investigation results in dead ends, more victims, no suspects and very little in the way of solid evidence. Gardener and Reilly have a problem and a question on their hands: are the residents of Bramfield prepared for one of history’s most sadistic killers, The Tooth Fairy?
Revenge is a dish best served cold …
I never read a book by this author before and I truely regret it. I can’t start to imagine the amount of research that was needed to make this story come alive, but I certainly appreciate that.
The methods the killer used were original and clever but sadistic w!thout a doubt. The book was fluently written and the little bits of humour that were added, increased the reading pleasure.
I guessed who was behind all the cruelty rather early on, but it did not, in the least, disturb me or tone my enthousisam for the story down. The author had a little surprise up his sleeve that I did not see coming. 5 stars well deserved.
Thank you, Ray Clark, Urbane Publications and Love Books Group.
