DS Becca Vincent is struggling to balance motherhood and move on her career in the police force when she witnesses the death of a man at a tube station, without realising it she’d just stumbled onto the biggest case of her career.
A second body turns up Becca sees a link with the body and the man in the tube station, she’s tasked to liaise with Joe Russell, a facial recognition expert otherwise known as a super recogniser.
More bodies start to turn up, each more gruesome than the next, the team are struggling. How will they catch a killer who’s always one step ahead of them?
So John Marrs has been on my radar for a while now, in fact I have two of his other books languishing unread on my kindle (I know I have a problem, I really need to stop buying books and not reading them!) and I’m kicking myself that I haven’t gotten round to reading his books sooner!
Now I love police procedural but I’m always on the look out for something with a bit different or unusual, so I jumped at the chance to read this specifically as it has super recognisers in it. I’ve been fascinated with them since I watched a program about them last year. Their job must be quite hard trawling through hours of CCTV footage looking at criminals faces.
I felt for Joe. He wants to find his sister Linzi so badly after she went missing when they were just children, he’s taken to searching for her wherever and whenever he can yet his super recogniser skills seem to be letting him down.
Becca is another good character, although I didn’t like her quite as much as Joe. At first I thought she was a bit selfish, putting her career before her disabled child but the reasons for this become apparent as you’re reading, it’s tear worthy is all I’m saying on that!
We also get inside really get inside the head of a twist and deranged serial killer, hell-bent on revenge but as you read on you see the more human side of him trying to get out. Weirdly, I actually felt kind of sorry for him!
Her Last Move is a real rollercoaster of a book, with so much tension, twists and shocks, I raced through it. It’s absolutely addictive!
