‘Hugely confident … harrowing, visceral … recommended’ Ian Rankin
‘Kept me hooked’ Angela Marsons
‘An excellent read’ Martina Cole
‘Gritty, dark and chilling’ Mel Sherratt
A murdered woman…
When the body of a young woman is found in a local park, DC Maggie Jamieson knows she’s dealing with no ordinary killer. The murder victim has been disfigured; her outfit changed to resemble someone else. Someone Maggie knows all too well…her close friend Dr Kate Moloney.
A determined detective…
Maggie is determined to keep her friend safe, but with Kate already struggling with a threatening stalker, Maggie now fears Kate’s life is in real danger. Who else would want to harm Kate and why else would the killer be turning his victims into exact replicas – his living dolls?
Can Maggie find the depraved killer? Or will Kate become his next living doll?
Dead Perfect is the third book in this series, and while all three can be read as a standalone, I recommend reading in order for the maximum experience. This book picks up right where the second left off, which is what I was hoping for, considering how much more I wanted at the end of book two.
Noelle Holten has an intensity to her writing that I don’t often see. She creates gritty, page-turning novels that I just can’t seem to put down.
Dead Perfect is quite possibly my favorite in the series so far. It was just so good, and so unputdownable. The tension, shocks, and twists will have you reading late into the night.
