This is book two in the amazing Rachel King series, following on nicely from Next Victim.
I really like the character of Rachel as she has a lot of history, and more to come. She is divorced, but living next door to her ex-husband and has two children. One of them is the daughter of the local crime lord, making Rachel’s past very interesting indeed.
This book follows Rachel and her team as she investigates a double murder, hence the book title. Victim one is a nurse and works in a homeless shelter, victim two is an unknown female. As the team try to uncover the truth they are thrown deep into the dark underworld of Manchester, including drugs, people trafficking and sex slaves.
Throughout the book there are so many twists and turns you don’t know where to go and which way the case is going to take.
Yet again this is another brilliant book by Helen and I can’t wait to see where the series goes next.
About the Author
OVER 750,000 books sold of her Calladine & Bayliss and DI Greco Series
I’m one of the ‘baby boomer’ generation. I was born in Edinburgh to an English father and Scottish mother. My father was from the North West of England and this was where the family settled.
I know the area well, both the good and the bad, and so I set my books here. Sitting between two counties, Lancashire and Yorkshire, and between the city and the hills, it offers a rich mix of the industrial and the countryside and all the character therein. I always planned to write crime novels — to create the characters in my books. Since my retirement from a busy teaching job in FE, this is what I’ve done — almost to exclusion of anything else!
I have a grown-up family and five grandchildren. They see me as something of an eccentric — always on my laptop writing away. Writing is something of a second career and, despite having a bus pass, keeps me busy, young and tuned in the world as it currently is.
