Title: Glass Dolls by D.E. White
Publisher: Joffe Books
Date Published: 31st March 2020
ONE OF THE MOST ELECTRIFYING THRILLERS YOU’LL READ THIS YEAR
A teenage girl is found murdered, encased in glass.
Detective Dove Milson is called out to the chilling crime scene by the Devon coast. The murder is a replica of the work of serial killer Peter Hayworth, known as the Glass Doll murderer. He would be the prime suspect . . . but he’s already dead.
FOUR YEARS AGO DETECTIVE DOVE MILSON’S NIECE WAS KILLED BY THE GLASS DOLL MURDERER
Now Dove leads the case. It’s her first job as part of the Major Crimes Team. She is recovering from a breakdown a few months earlier.
Then another Glass Doll is found in an isolated cove.
A TWISTED COPYCAT KILLER?
Dove finds her family is at the heart of this new case. The latest Glass Doll victims both worked at her sister Gaia’s strip club.
The club’s manager found the second Glass Doll. He claims to have been in the wrong place at the wrong time, but Dove doesn’t believe in coincidences.
THEN DOVE’S SURVIVING NIECE DISAPPEARS
Will she become the next Glass Doll?
Time is running out for her niece. Dove must race to catch a killer before it’s too late. Then a new lead tears a hole in the case.
Discover a brand new thriller with a jaw-dropping twist you won’t see coming.
Perfect for fans of Cara Hunter, K.L. Slater, Robert Bryndza, Helen Fields and Angela Marsons.
I want to thank Jill Burkinshaw at Books N All Promotions for inviting me on this tour and Joffe books for providing a copy of this novel in exchange for an honest review.
I’m always excited when I hear there’s a new D.E. White book coming out! This I believe is going to be the first in the Dove Milson series and I was eager to get stuck in, especially as it features a serial killer.
DC Dove Milson is still struggling after one of her cases in her former unit, where she dealt with police informants undercover, ended badly. She’s looking for a fresh start but when a girl turns up encased in glass, eerily similar to serial killer Peter Hayworth’s victims, she realises it’s not going to be that simple. You see Peter Hayworth killed her niece and she still feels like she could have done more.
Glass Dolls is a complex and entertaining police procedural with plenty of twists and turns culminating in a nail biting ending.
I really liked Dove. How she copes throughout the story is beyond me, especially having to deal with both her sisters, one who is frail and the other who is, well, challenging to say the least!
Yes, the killings were a little over the top but they really stand out as one of the most imaginative I’ve read for a while.
Glass Dolls is a solid start to this series and I’m eager to read more!
