About the book
Some sins can never be forgiven.

DI Jane Phillips was a star detective driven by a relentless quest for justice. But then she stepped outside the law.

Now, demoted and suffering with PTSD, she finds herself facing the deadliest threat of her career -- a serial killer who is preying on vulnerable women, murdering them in a shocking and bizarre ritual.

A master of deception, he selects his victims at random. Or so it seems. But as Phillips investigates, she begins to see a method in the killer's madness. Perhaps these victims aren't random at all... 

As the pressure mounts, can Phillips find the link between these ritual murders before the killer strikes again -- or will her dogged determination to solve the case bring his deadly silence to her door?
Review
Detective Jane Phillips is on the search for a brutal serial killer who preys on vulnerable lonely women. There doesn't appear to be any direct connection between them, so maybe the killer just gets a thrill out of tormenting the weak and vulnerable of society.

But the killer does have an agenda. An agenda caused by betrayal, inner torment and a lifetime of pain. Somebody has to pay for the pain. Will Phillips be able to find the killer before they get through their long list of vengeance?

The main character is a strong female lead, however Ryan has written Detective Jane Phillips in a very specific way. She is aggressive, belligerent and doesn't think the rules apply to her. It's very androcentric, which suggests women have to act like one of the boys to be accepted as one of the boys.

In a way I think it is supposed to portray her as a rebel with a cause. Instead she comes off as rude and insubordinate. It does mean she always follows the crime and the clues, as opposed to what her superior thinks she needs to follow though. Perhaps there is method to her madness?

It's a police procedural, a crime read and a psychological thriller at the same time. Ryan delivers memorable characters, a pithy plot and a series to follow.
