About the book
‘Repent in this life, rejoice in the next…’
A murder made to look like suicide. Another that appears an accident. DI Barton investigates the tragedies that have shattered a family’s lives, but without obvious leads the case goes nowhere. Then, when the remains of a body are found, everything points to one suspect.

Barton and his team move quickly, and once the killer is behind bars, they can all breathe a sigh of relief. But death still lurks in the shadows, and no one's soul is safe. Not even those of the detectives…

How do you stop a killer that believes life is a rehearsal for eternity, and their future is worth more than your own…?

Ross Greenwood writes gritty, heart-pounding thrillers, with twists aplenty, and unforgettable endings. Perfect for fans of Mark Billingham and Stuart MacBride.

The story is told via two narrators - the killer and the man who will begin to hunt the killer, DI Barton.

The killer begins his tale in his childhood, perhaps to give a better idea of why he thinks and feels the way he does or rather doesn't, because he is very much aware of his lack of emotional response from a very early age. Probably for the best seeing as his childhood is clouded by a mother who likes to punish and neglect on a regular basis.

As an adult the killer becomes obsessive, possessive and is easily slighted. Pity the poor woman who dares to becomes involved with him. They might find it difficult or even a deadly connection. DI Barton and his team stumble upon a ruthless and yet weirdly passionate killer - can passion be as cold as ice I wonder? Either way the chase to stop him is afoot.

It's a police procedural, which has the vibe of a psychological thriller at times.

Although Barton and his team are a good read I have to say I really enjoyed the way Greenwood approached and delivered the story of the killer, especially the beginning of the book. It had an excellent creepy feeling, and yet simultaneously it also describes the cold and calculated child who grows up to become an adult with no regard for life.

Greenwood delivers a well-paced and well written crime read. DI Barton and his team are ones to watch in the world of crime solving.
