Picture the scene, you have just heard your best friend has woken from a coma, you rush off into the deplorable wet weather in the car and BAM nearly run over a young lady. Kal freaks out, tries to ensure Sophie is ok and offers her a lift .. she is very uneasy when Sophie wants to be dropped off in an undesirable area.
Kal spots something vulnerable in Sophie and decides to follow it up and check she is safe and well. From here the whole mystery begins. Kal works on her wits, she is a star of self defence and reading people .. her friend Marty helps out but has a different approach.
There is a killer on the loose whose victims are all friends of Sophie. For anyone with a weak stomach like mine when it comes to EYES just be aware that it has squeamish moments. This killer is a warped brute, totally sinister, yet discovering who it is certainly kept me guessing.
This is a slow burn novel that slowly ramps up. Easy to read chapters that entice you to keep going. I liked all three main characters (Kal, Marty, Sophie) for various reasons and wanted the best outcome for them all. There is a great psychological thread throughout which fascinated me, the mental illness aspect is written fabulously. The setting makes for an eerie vision and at times I was really creeped out. The plot is well thought out yet the complexity of the characters adds to the suspense.
I really enjoyed London Noir (always feels weird enjoying a murder!)
