This was sent to me as part of the Goodreads "First Reads" program. I typically don't like to read mystery/thriller books set in Englad and I think it might have to do with the fact that my Mom used to make me watch "Eastenders" as a kid, but its kind of weird, cause I don't mind watching movies set there, but I'm glad I gave this one a whirl.

Detectives Carver and Lake are in their second book together, the first one being "Splinter in the Blood", which I definitely man to read now. In this chapter of their series, they are in the pursuit of a very dangerous artist, who has been putting their very disturbing "art" on public display. As this artist progresses, their displays become more graphic, which means Carver and Lake must put an end to it all.

Carver and Lake both have their flaws and have issues that they both need to deal with personally which coincides with their pursuit of a killer. They need to find a way to overcome the issues otherwise they could potentially lose the game that is being played.

In the end, I thought the writer(s) did a great job with the character development of the lead characters as well as the progression of the story line. It was intriguing and well thought out that I wasn't able to put it all together until it was revealed.

I would recommend this book/series and I plan to continue with it as more books come out.
