I am thrilled to share my review with you today for Mimic by Daniel Cole. Which is out on the 15th July
In life she was his muse . . .
In death she’ll be his masterpiece
DS Benjamin Chambers and DC Adam Winter are on the trail of a twisted serial killer with a passion for recreating the world’s greatest works of art through the bodies of his victims. But after Chambers almost loses his life, the case goes cold – their killer lying dormant, his collection unfinished.
Jordan Marshall has excelled within the Metropolitan Police Service, fuelled by a loss that defined her teenage years. Obsessed, she manages to obtain new evidence, convincing both Chambers and Winter to revisit the case. However, their resurrected investigation brings about a fresh reign of terror, the team treading a fine line between police officers and vigilantes in their pursuit of a monster far more dangerous and intelligent than any of them had anticipated…
This is the second book that I have read by Daniel Cole or should I say listened to. It is 9 hours and 20 mins long. Which I’d narrated by Jude Owusu. I have to say that I loved the narrator. He totally brings this story to life when we follow a case that starts in 1989 when the hunt is on for a serial killer who poses his victims bodys like an art has an art sculpture The story moves to 2006 when the case is reopened when new evidence comes to light.
Sounds good doesn’t it? Well it certainly is! I absolutely enjoyed this standalone.There is plenty of police procedure and It is full of fresh characters that are likeable and a little bit different in their own way. Not forgetting the plot. I found myself listening to this in no time at all. It really didn’t feel like a 9 hour audio.
One of the things I loved was the dark humour that’s added into the mix. There are some uncomfortable gruesome scenes adding horror to the story.The darker the better is what I always say.
Over all this is a highly entertaining addictive gripping plot. Which fans old and new will enjoy.
Thank you to Tracy Fenton for the blog tour invite and to Orion Books for a copy of the audio.
