When you wake up to learn that someone’s left a decapitated head in a bunker on a golf course, you know it’s going to be a difficult day. And so it turns out in in the second book of the DI Nick Dixon series.
Di Dixon is a well-drawn and likable character who leads his team well as they dig deeper to find much more than they bargained for in the hunt for the killer. As the pieces slot together, it becomes a race against time to prevent more murders.
I enjoyed the original and memorable plot, which kept me guessing for quite a while. The investigation felt realistic and thorough, pulling the team in various directions until they homed in on the motive and the killer. The whole story was engaging and easy to read, allowing me to race through to the climax.
The discovery of a severed head in a golf course bunker triggers a frantic race to find a serial killer that brings the town of Burnham-on-Sea to a standstill.
A connection is made with a series of unsolved murders harking back to the 1970s, and Detective Inspector Nick Dixon finds himself caught in a race against time that takes him the length and breadth of the country.
The brutal killing of an elderly man raises the stakes and, as he closes in, Dixon begins to question whether he is chasing one serial killer or two.
