DI Kate Young can’t trust anybody. Not even herself.
In the bleak countryside around Blithfield Reservoir, a serial murderer and rapist is leaving a trail of bloodshed. His savage calling card: the word ‘MINE’ carved into each of his victims.
DI Kate Young struggles to get the case moving—even when one of the team’s own investigators is found dead in a dumpster. But Kate is battling her own demons. Obsessed with exposing Superintendent John Dickson and convinced there’s a conspiracy running deep in the force, she no longer knows who to trust. Kate’s crusade has already cost her dearly. What will she lose next?
When her stepsister spills a long-buried secret, Kate realises she’s found the missing link—now she must prove it before the killer strikes again. With enemies closing in on all sides, she’s prepared to do whatever it takes to bring them down. But time is running out, and Kate’s past has pushed her to the very edge. Can she stop herself from falling?
A Cut for a Cut by Carol Wyer is the second in the Detective Kate Young series. I loved the first book, An Eye for an Eye, so I was really excited to read this one.
I love when a second book is even better than the first. I really enjoyed this. Carol Wyer has an excellent writing style. She knows how to hook you, and keep you invested in the story. This is a great pace, and I really enjoyed it.
The thing that makes this book flow so well is the character development. Kate is such an awesome main character. She’s continued to be strong, and I feel like I know her, now. It was like catching up with an old friend.
I recommend giving this series a shot. This can be read as a standalone, but you get more character info if you read them in order.
