I really enjoyed this thriller about a killer who seems to be inspired by Jack the Ripper. Conveniently, policewoman Lacey Flint, who literally runs into one of the victims who is stabbed near her parked car, knows rather a lot about the Ripper, and despite the fact that she is a witness, she becomes involved in the investigation by dint of that knowledge. (It's not that simple, of course, and I really loved the twists and turns the investigation takes).

I quite dislike the sort of romantic interest which starts with a tense hostility between characters, and I thought the interactions between DI Joesbury and Lacey bordered on the creepily nasty at times. Despite that, it's a very satisfingly twisty mystery that surprised me at a number of points - I kept changing my mind about what I thought was happening, and I like books that have me do that. I thought the ending was brilliant, and I really want to read another one of SJ Bolton's books.
