The first book in the DI Kate Matthews series Dead to Me was totally fantastic so I was super excited to read Dying Day. Thanks to Stephen Edger, NetGalley and Bookouture for the advance copy.
The first words which spring to mind are bloody awesome! You can tell when a book is really well written, you get totally sucked in and you can’t put it down. I was flying through the pages
as I just had to know what was going to happen next in this gritty, captivating and totally thrilling book. It was a case of “just one more chapter” and before I knew it I was half way through the book.
I really like Kate Matthews, she is dedicated, hardworking and isn’t scared to put herself into the firing line to get results. She has a good team working with her but occasionally she goes
rogue and gets herself in hot water. There is an honesty about her which makes her very real and appealing as a female role model to her junior detectives.
Stephen Edger has done an amazing job with book 2 in the series. Dying Day could be read as a stand-alone but I recommend that you read Dead to Me first so that you get the background on the
characters and storyline.
I am really looking forward to book 3 and Stephen edger has leapt into my top 5 favourite author list.
Seriously guys this book is really good, I highly recommend it and give it a big fat 5 stars.
Here is the publishers blurb:
Her dark skin looks almost grey; the effect of the elements and death’s touch. Her limp body left pressed against a wire fence like trash. I make a silent promise that I will do everything I
can to catch the person who did this to her…
Exactly a year ago, Amy, a young detective on Detective Kate Matthews’ team, was killed when she was sent undercover to catch a serial killer targeting young girls.
Kate never forgave herself for letting the killer slip through her fingers…
As the case is reopened and the campaign to find the culprit begins again, Kate is told to stay well away, and for good reason: another girl’s body has been found.
Kate is determined to connect new evidence to the old to catch this monster before more innocent lives are taken. The trail runs cold when her prime suspect is found dead. But then why is the body count still rising?
The answer is more terrible than Kate could possibly have imagined, and the killer so much closer than she thinks…
