Deadly Dance: A British police procedural by Hilary Bonner

This is psychological game playing at the maximum speed.  The police are pursuing three killers.  The deeper they go, the less they see...

Severn House and Net Galley allowed me to read this book for review (thank you).  It will be published December 1st.

This is a really creepy story.  The killers have their own chapters and talk about the problems they have in trying to establish normal relationships.  One is a pedophile, one kills his wife, and one kills his homosexual lover.  Reading the chapters from the killer's point-of-view is chilling and overwhelming both.  There's confusion, a bit of sorrow, and worry about being caught.

The police are looking everywhere, going through old police records, and interviewing anyone that might know something.  This is a sordid tale with a smart killer.  As Vogel begins to put together the pieces, he realizes these killers are all part of one man's mind.  The split personality is why the murders are different.  He has one more thing to discover and when he does, it's almost too late.

This is a spooky story that kept me glued to my chair while they hunted for the killer.  The ending is chilling.  I'd read more about this detective.  He's dedicated and smart and doesn't give up.
