Wow where do I start with Broken Dolls? As we have become to expect from Sarah Flint this book was absolutely thrilling and heart stopping.
DC Charlie Stafford has a lot on her plate with this one with two cases a dead baby and a dead prostitute. Are they connected or are they totally random attacks? As she tries to unravel the cases we see the seedy and violent side of prostitution, people smuggling, drug taking and crack houses. These women live a dangerous life and live for their next fix.
This was an extremely well told story as I had absolutely no idea of who the killer was until the reveal at the end, and what a surprise that was! I would never have guessed it in a million years. I really enjoyed this book, I like Charlie and her team they are a cohesive group that work well together. The story was fast paced, kept me entertained and interested all the way through and kept me guessing. I had a hard time putting this one down it was a real page turner that kept me reading late into the night.
The ending was just amazing and blew my mind! It was bloody amazing!
I loved this book it was really good, I am giving it 5 stars because it deserves it, it was a great book and I highly recommend it.
