Title: Under The Woods by K.A Richardson

Publisher: Bloodhound Books

Date Published: 27th April 2018

Genre: Mystery/Thriller

Description:

When a homeless woman, Cheryl Whiffen, hears voices in her head telling her to do bad things, she can’t help but obey.

But when Cheryl becomes the victim of a serial killer who is collecting angels, this time the voices can’t help her. She is deemed not worthy of being an angel and the killer has to find another way to dispose of her body.

TJ Tulley has connections in the police force – her brother Jacob is a digital forensic analyst and her soon to be sister-in-law is a CSI. She knows many of their colleagues so when someone breaks into her house at the riding stables she owns, it’s not a surprise when the police dispatch CSI Jackson Doherty.

Is there a link between a suspicious fire at the stables and the serial killer?

As TJ and Doherty get closer to the truth they don’t realise the danger they are in. He is a killer – he’s angry at their investigation and he’ll do just about anything to protect his angels…

Review:

When her friend Cheryl is taken from the streets, Sally begs the police to investigate but unwittingly becomes a target for a serial killer who is collecting angels.

Meanwhile, forced to changed career paths due to a devastating attack, TJ has embraced her new role as owner of Rainbow Riding Stables. TJ thinks she’s put the past behind her but after a break in at her house and stables she’s meets CSI Jackson Docherty and together they must find out who is targeting her.

This is the fourth book in this series but the first I’ve read and while some of the characters are recurring from earlier books, I would say this works perfectly well as a stand-alone.

Under The Woods is dark and disturbing novel, set in the North East of England, that puts you inside the mind of a really twisted serial killer. The story focuses more on the CSI/forensic investigation which I found was a nice change than the usual police procedurals.

There were a lot of strong female characters like TJ and Sally who have both been through so much but won’t go down without a fight. I also liked the romance between TJ and Jackson, their chemistry really crackled off the page.

I’m not going to call this book a nail biter, but it really pulls you with the great characters and compelling story that makes you not want to put it down. I don’t want to say too much more in case I end up giving away spoilers!

If I had one issue it was the whole Jackson’s getting stalked by his crazy ex girlfriend storyline. All he seemed to do was shout at her (I’m sorry how many times does shouting at a deranged person actually work?), and made me dislike Jackson, plus I just don’t think it really added to the story but that of course is just my opinion.

Overall a darkly disturbing modern thriller that will keep you enthralled throughout.

Rating: 4/5

About The Author:

My name is Kerry-Ann Richardson (generally known as Kerry) and I write as KA Richardson. Idownload started writing the North East Police series in 2010 when I was working towards my MA Creative Writing – I used the first 15000 words of With Deadly Intent as my dissertation. I passed my MA in 2011 and kept on writing. This all came about from working as a Crime Scene Investigator – I’d always written but when I was a CSI I went to see a psychic, Anthony, and he wanted to know why I wasn’t writing. He reminded me that it was my passion and said he could see me signing in Waterstones in 5 years. That was 5.5 years before my first ever signing in Waterstones so he wasn’t far wrong!

I did the normal things writers do when their book is ready to go out into the world – submitted to agents etc. I got a few nice personal responses back – still saying no but being constructive and polite about it. I approached Darren Laws from Caffeine Nights whilst at a crime festival and he asked to see my work. He agreed to publish With Deadly Intent from there, and once that was out I approached Bloodhound Books as wanted to know if there was any other interest in my novels. Bloodhound came back within 24 hours and offered me a 3 book deal! And I’ve since signed an additional 3 book deal with them which covers the series up to and including book 7!
