Review published on March 12, 2017.
Lena Peters is a criminal psychologist who has joined a new team within the Berlin police force. She meets her boss in unfortunate circumstances when she thinks he is an intruder at her home. The rest of the team seem to be welcoming, but she feels she isn’t really being given all the information about the spate of gruesome murders that they are trying to solve. As the murders escalate, Lena tries to do her job, but will she be given the chance to prove that is the case? When she finds herself outside the loop of pertinent information she is desperate to follow the case, but that could prove be her downfall. I did connect with the characters and I found myself rooting for Lena. There were a couple of things that didn’t quite ring true, but I looked past them and found that I really enjoyed the book. I will definitely look out for the next one in the series.
