Even in your dreams you’re not safe…
This started out as a tight, tense locked room murder but then dipped into Rivers of London style territory and became even more weird and twisted and I really enjoyed it.
DC Rose Gifford is contacted by a detective working for UCIT – apparently a compliance team but actually they deal with the weirder cases – ones like this, that might involve a killer who can astral project himself into his victims’ dreams and then into their reality.
What Rose is hiding is that she can see things that she shouldn’t – like her dead mother, and she’s worried if she says anything they’ll think she’s crazy but DS Moody and her team are on the lookout for people just like her – for them seeing the dead is a good thing.
As the case continues Rose has to be brave and dig deeper – it’s just all too neat and tidy, their suspect is too convenient. I liked Rose, her tenacity and nose for the truth, however strange, serve her well in this case.
Well written, gripping and very enjoyable, this is the first in what will hopefully be a series of strange cases solved by the UCIT team with some unorthodox methods, can’t wait!
