About the book:
The serial killer is behind bars. But the murders are just beginning…
DC Maggie Jamieson’s past comes back to haunt her in this dark and gripping serial killer thriller.
Three missing women running out of time…
They were abducted years ago. Notorious serial killer Bill Raven admitted to killing them and was sentenced to life.
The case was closed – at least DC Maggie Jamieson thought it was…
But now one of them has been found, dismembered and dumped in a bin bag in town.
Forensics reveal that she died just two days ago, when Raven was behind bars, so Maggie has a second killer to find.
Because even if the other missing women are still alive, one thing’s for certain: they don’t have long left to live…

Having enjoyed the first book in the DC Maggie Jameson series (Dead Inside) I was looking forward to Dead Wrong and catching up with the gang. Personally I preferred this story but I’ve always had a soft spot for serial killers and grisly murder scenes. You can’t get much more grisly than body parts turning up years after the victims went missing!
The twist in the tale is that these body parts are fresh meaning that the man who was charged with the murders (Bill Raven) may well be innocent. It is up to Maggie to find out what has happened and get the truth out of Bill; she is convinced she has the right culprit but he is an extremely slippery (also incredibly slimy!) man and she definitely has her work cut out for her. These exchanges in prison reminded me of Clarice Starling and Hannibal Lecter in Silence of The Lambs. The tension is ramped up by the fact that there are still at least two women classed as missing from the original case, the longer it takes Maggie to solve the case the more fresh body parts will appear…
In Dead Wrong we get to know a little more about Maggie including her brother and her blossoming relationship with a prominent character. I’m not one for giving spoilers away so I’ll simply say…wow. Book three please!
