“Moaning, she lifted her aching head up off the cold tiled floor. In the background the razor sharp noise of dripping water echoed again and again.
All she knew was that she was hurting. Really hurting.
That was when she realised that her tongue was missing…”

If you like Peter James, you’ll love Danielle Ramsay.
This was my first book I have read from Danielle Ramsay and I found it a fast paced gritty read with plenty of surprise twists, this sex trafficking story has quite a violent and shocking start which kept me reading this book all the way through in 1 sitting.
It is a compelling read and we watch Brady get completely immersed into this sadistic crime ring with personal issues directly relating to it. I found Brady a believable likeable rough round the edges cop, just my kinda guy and I wanted to know more about him. But I probably need to read book 1 to find out more about the inner man.
I thoroughly enjoyed Danielle's flow which keeps you on the edge of your seat all the way through the book and I really hope she writes another in this series as I loved the fast paced writing to this story.
Id definitely recommend this book to those that love a rough edged crime thriller.
