He had never heard himself scream before. It was terrifying.
Alone, trapped in the darkness and with no way out, Bart Campbell knows that his chances of being found alive are slim.
Drugged and kidnapped, the realisation soon dawns that he’s been locked inside a shipping container far from his Edinburgh home. But what Bart doesn’t yet know is that he’s now heading for France where his unspeakable fate is already sealed…
DCI Ava Turner and DI Luc Callanach are working on separate cases that soon collide as it becomes clear that the men and women being shipped to France are being traded for women trafficked into Scotland.
With so many lives at stake, they face an impossible task – but there’s no option of failure when Bart and so many others will soon be dead…
Get ready for a rollercoaster ride like no other, with the next gripping thriller from the number one bestselling crime author, Helen Fields. The perfect read for fans of M. J. Arlidge and Karin Slaughter.
Happy Valentine’s day!
Today is my stop for the blog tour of one of my favourite authors, Helen Fields. Her latest book, Perfect Kill, is just perfect. Creepy, dark, full of action, unpredictable. Perfect. And don’t forget to visit all the other stops of this amazing blog tour.
This time Ava and Luc are facing two different cases. In France, Luc is working on a case where a young man’s body is found with all internal organs removed. The body belongs to a British citizen. A woman in Edinburgh reports her son missing. A young woman same age is also missing. Two possible victims of organ harvesting mafia. Luc is running against time to save these people’s lives. And find the killer.
In Scotland, Ava is working on a different case. Human trafficking. There is a body of a man connected with local mafia. Then there are several female bodies found on a farm. It turns out that they are connected. Can Ava and her team stop the chain of human trafficking from Eastern Europe and save all those women?
In the meantime, both Luc and Ava are trying to solve their personal problems. But their friend, Natasha, is battling breast cancer. Can they both put personal thing on side and just be there for their friend?
Perfect Kill is the sixth novel in the series, but it can perfectly stand alone. It is a gripping thriller, starting from the very first sentence. You read: “He had never heard himself scream before. It was terrifying.” and the hair stands up on your head and you don’t know what to expect next. The author included the most common evil in modern days, organ harvesting and human trafficking. She goes deep into the net of the mafia who plays with human lives like they don’t worth a thing. What the victims go through, is beyond every imagination. And adding Natasha to the whole story is a perfect balance. I enjoyed reading the book, couldn’t stop till the last page. Totally recommended.
