I have a little fascination with novels about serial killers that prey on other predators, and this doesn't disappoint.
Great stuff, from start to finish!
Second of the series and an excellent read, hope there is more in the pipeline.
3.5 stars

Enjoyable and absorbing crime thriller with an unexpected and quite scary villain.
I didn't find police heroine Collins to be an especially deep or sympathetic character, and the pacing wasn't as good as some other crime thrillers I've read (Jack Kerley, for instance), but readability and grossness go some way to compensate for this.
Recommended for any crime thriller/police procedural fans.

A serial killer is on the loose in London and a female detective with a complicated family life investigates.

The first few chapters were good, then I found the writing / dialogue became clunky and the plot deteriorated – it started to read more like a draft / outline rather than a polished / finished book.

I rated this 3 star but it was really 2.5.
I thought Scent of a Killer was a decent book, based on this work alone though I'm not sure if Kevin Lewis is entirely deserving of the title "king of crime" as the rear of the book promises. It took me a long time to warm to this book but once I did it was enjoyable enough.

Pretty good read. Bit gruesome and gory in places and was somewhat clichéd and predictable in places too. A good read though.
Ridicously Brillint

Though the book starts out bleak, it crawls into becoming irresistible!
One of the most disgusting murders I have ever read about in detail. Amazing!
