This is the first book in the Jack Caffery series, I read the Treatment, which is book #2 first. As I recall I enjoyed that book, but I think I would have enjoyed it more if I had read this book first.
Besides this being the first book, it is also DI Caffery’s first case as lead investigator. The bodies of 5 women are discovered in London, all murdered and mutilated, some in very advanced stages of decay. There is one more unique thing about the bodies, each woman has a spoiler.
Except for the victims and maybe one witness who then gets involved with Jack, these characters are not very sympathetic or nice. Jack is obsessed with something that happened in his youth, Jack’s girlfriend is obsessed with getting Jack over it, another DI is obsessed with showing Jack up.
The serial killer is a very twisted individual, rather unbelievable but not too unbelievable, and there is a twist midway through the book. Just like there was in the Treatment. One thing is that Jack gets these flashes of inspiration where he suddenly knows, why the killer did this or that. That was a little annoying. I did enjoy this book, but I doubt I will read any more in this series.
