My favorite cannibal returns to the page in this second installment of the Timothy Blake series!

Timothy Blake is brilliant. He's also as morally grey as you can get. Working as a civilian consultant for the FBI, Blake contributes a lot to the investigations he works, as it is easy for him to get into the mind of a killer.

In this second book, Blake is moonlighting as a 'body disposal expert' for a local crime lord and during the course of that work, stumbles across a naked corpse in the woods, which he promptly brings home. As you do.

Unfortunately, the next case he gets called in on to help the FBI with is to look for that missing man. The man now currently residing in his freezer. How is Blake going to solve the crime and get away with hiding the body?

Guys, I am so into Jack Heath's writing. It is so good. It draws you in. It is easy to read, never overwrought. It is dark, grisly, disturbing -- not for the faint of heart -- morbidly humorous...all these things and more!!!

If you are sleeping on this series and you like dark, original stories, you need to make time for this. Hangman, the first book in the series, was one of my favorite police procedural thrillers of 2018. It really stuck with me. I was so psyched to be getting a second book with Timothy Blake. Now, where this one leaves off, there DEFINITELY needs to be a third book!!!

Thank you so much to the publisher, Hanover Square Press, for providing me with a copy of this to read and review. I am so in love with this series and I will never stop recommending it to readers who enjoy darker content. I am highly anticipating the next book!

MeaganCM Sounds awesome! I added to my TBR. I haven't had any luck with thrillers lately, but this sounds just dark enough for me!

They are police procedurals though...I know not everyone is crazy about those but if you do, I think you could really enjoy these ones! Xo
