The nation is gripped by the infamous ‘Ragdoll Killer’
Every news bulletin and headline is obsessed with this story.
Your friends, your family and your neighbours are all talking about it.

A body is discovered with the dismembered parts of six victims stitched together like a puppet, nicknamed by the press as the ‘ragdoll’.

Assigned to the shocking case are Detective William ‘Wolf’ Fawkes, recently reinstated to the London Met, and his former partner Detective Helen Baxter.

The ‘Ragdoll Killer’ taunts the police by releasing a list of names to the media, and the dates on which he intends to murder them.

With six people to save, can Fawkes and Baxter catch a killer when the world is watching their every move?



I received a copy of this book from Netgalley in exchange for my honest review.

I absolutely adored this book. It was full of twists and turns and unexpected surprises. I could barely put this down. The characters were full of depth and realism.

DS William Oliver Layton-Fawkes is one of the best protagonists turned antagonist I have experienced in a long time.

Author Daniel Cole is a brave author for tackling the subject of mental health and it’s long term effects on a person’s ability to function in everyday society especially considering the character’s high profile career as a homicide detective.

I very much look forward to reading more novels by Daniel Cole in the future and hope he has something new in store for the damaged Wolf.
