'Sarah Flint has written one detailed and surprising mystery. Between her surprising cast of characters, well thought out plot and descriptive scenes she's able to set a story you won't figure out 'til the end' Artistic Bent. 'Everyone is keeping some kind of secret, but is any of it worth murdering to keep quiet about it? Will Charlie end up on a slab before she can figure out who is behind these killings? It will keep you guessing!' Books, Books and More Books! 'Clever, fast pacing and keeps you guessing until the end. I cannot wait to see what is waiting for Charlie next. I really enjoyed both of the books and just wish someone would pick it up for TV adaptations. It would make a brilliant crime drama for those long winter nights' No Empty Shelves Here. 'The second book in the DC Charlie Stafford series. The first, the brilliant Mummy's Favourite, was published last year and, in my opinion, this one is even better! Sarah Flint has done a good job in keeping you guessing right to the end' Go Buy The Book. 'Comparable to Robert Bryndza's series and I can definitely recommend adding The Trophy Taker to your reading list' The Belgian Reviewer.
From the bestselling author of MUMMY'S FAVOURITE.
He's watching, waiting... and counting. A gripping serial killer for fans of Angela Marsons.
He keeps each one floating in formaldehyde to stop them from rotting. Each finger denotes a victim, tortured and butchered, their heart ripped out and discarded, replaced instead by symbols of their treachery. He sits alone admiring his trophies weekly; each and every one of them guilty in his eyes. And now more must pay.
But who or what links the victims?
DC 'Charlie' Stafford is already investigating a series of escalating racist attacks and it now seems she has a vicious serial killer on her patch. With no leads and time running out, the team at Lambeth are at near breaking point.
Something has to give... and all the while he's watching, waiting... and counting.
