A body is discovered with the dismembered parts of six victims stitched together like a puppet, nicknamed by the press as the ‘ragdoll’.
Assigned to the shocking case are Detective William ‘Wolf’ Fawkes, recently reinstated to the London Met, and his former partner Detective Emily Baxter.
The ‘Ragdoll Killer’ taunts the police by releasing a list of names to the media, and the dates on which he intends to murder them.
With six people to save, can Fawkes and Baxter catch a killer when the world is watching their every move?
Samantha is on jury duty, the accused is named The Cremation Killer.
Having killed 27 victims in 27 days, all of them prostitutes aged between 14-16, it seems quite inevitable that he will be found guilty.
When a ‘Not Guilty’ verdict is announced, William ‘Wolf’ Fawkes is brutal in showing his displeasure.
Four years later Wolf is called to a murder scene, one that is horrific and altogether different from any other that has been fictionalised…… there is 1 dead body but there are 6 victims.
When a ‘hitlist’ is given to Fawkes’s journalist ex-wife, the wheels are set in motion for a tremendous ride for fans of ‘serial killer thrillers’
Daniel Cole re-writes the rules of who and what a serial killer is and what they are capable of in this brilliant and highly tense novel. He has definitely raised the bar of this genre and Ragdoll is going to be THE read of 2017.
It is brutal, but it will excite and satisfy the most blood-lusting of readers.
A highly addictive read, I feel that this book is one that you just have to lock the doors and turn off the phone. I just didn’t want life to get in my way of my reading.
I loved Wolf, Edmonds and Baxter, and hope against hope that we will be hearing from them again. They are an incredible set of characters, and throughout I kept changing my mind as to whom was my favourite.
Daniel Cole has written a novel quite unlike anything else. It is a fantastic debut and I hope it is a start to a fabulous ‘readers love affair’ with him.
Definitely one to watch out for.
