Five Bloody Hearts by Joy Ellis
My rating: 4 of 5 stars
DCI Matt Ballard is waiting for his replacement so that he can retire. But he is called out to Washway Farm Drove as a body has been discovered. The third knife victim in the last few months. All with the same distinctive tattoo. All Lithuanian migrants. What is the connection between them.
Meanwhile a Mrs Grace Repton informs Ballard that her fiance, Jeremy Reader, convicted murderer of five woman has been told that a copycat, called Alex, is about to start killing. And he does.
An enjoyable well-written modern crime story
