Stephen Berry is about to jump off a bridge until suicide prevention counsellor Damien Maclure stops him.
One week later, Stephen Berry is found dead at the bottom of a cliff. But did he take his own life…or was he pushed?
A spate of murders sweeps across Edinburgh, and to make matters worse for DI Luc Callanach and DCI Ava Turner, the victims seem random and entirely unconnected.
With no clear method for how the killer chooses their victims, Callanach and Turner are under more pressure than ever to identify the killer before it’s too late. But as a separate murder case rears its head and places Callanach as the prime suspect, it seems like this killer might just be uncatchable…
I received a complimentary copy of this book from NetGalley, Avon Books UK and was under no obligation to post a review, positive or negative.
Perfect Crime is my first Helen Fields novel. I’m not sure how to put into words what I felt about this novel. On one hand, I enjoyed the writing style of Fields. She has a unique talent and it shines. On the other hand, I didn’t feel a great connection with the characters in this book. I just wasn’t instantly taken into their lives like I like to have.
That said, despite the lack of connection with the characters, I was impressed with the intensity of the story line. I enjoyed the enjoy the edge of my seat quality and determining if it was suicide or murder. Following Ava and Luc’s story is emotional, it’s twisty, it’s well thought out. If you want a fast paced, thrilling ride of ups, downs, ins and outs, this is a 3.5 star read you don’t want to miss. I am looking forward to grabbing the other books in this series and see what Fields has in store for her fans with those ones.
