This was an interesting investigation into a serial killer, who attacked women engaged to be married. It’s DI Rob Miller’s first case as senior investigating officer and he wants to take the chance to show his superiors what he can do. But the long, relentless hours pursuing the killer have a dramatic effect on his own love life, alienating his fiancée, Yvette.

It’s a well-written investigation with some strong characters in the police team that investigates. The author shows the pressures and stresses involved with murder enquiries, both at work and at home.

The story zipped along, which might explain why I felt Rob Miller’s character lacked a little depth. Some of his behaviour was quite predictable and a little clichéd in places, which was a pity, as overall it’s a solid story and investigation.


A deranged serial killer targeting brides-to-be. An ambitious young detective. A case that could destroy everything.

A young woman is brutally attacked on her way home. It looks like she was the victim of a jilted — and twisted — ex-lover.

But then two more women, also engaged to be married, are found dead.

The press call the killer the ‘Surrey Stalker’. And there’s a stack of similar cold case files.

The pressure is on for young, ambitious DI Rob Miller.

But with all the time he’s spending at the office, Rob’s also running a fine line trying to keep his fiancée, Yvette, onside as they try to plan their wedding . . .
