You’re young. You’re in love. You’re in terrible danger…
A completely unputdownable thriller from Amazon chart bestseller Arlene Hunt.

‘The woman’s body lay on the bed, hair fanned out in a golden halo, blue eyes open. On the table stood an unmistakable sign: a bouquet of bright yellow roses...’

On a freezing January morning, a young couple is found dead in their cottage in the quiet Dublin suburbs. When Detective Eli Quinn arrives at the scene his stomach drops. It’s the second double homicide in as many months where the killer has left a bunch of yellow roses.

Tucked between the thorns is a little card, with an image of a broken heart. There’s no doubt the killer is trying to send a message, but what do the flowers mean? And can Eli figure out the killer’s motive, before they strike again?

Utterly gripping, fast-paced and nail-bitingly tense, this serial killer thriller will keep you up reading all night. If you love Angela Marsons, Rachel Abbott and Patricia Gibney, you won’t be able to put this down.




Wow, what a start to this one. A woman’s body found, posed, hair layed out like a bright halo, and yellow roses on the bedside table. Creeeeepy for sure.

Murders of couples have the people on edge, scared and it is no wonder. These are just your everyday people, nothing liken them together. That is beside the murders themselves. Police are workin overtime to put a stop to the murders. Who is behind the murders? And why the roses? Why is it that the woman seems to be the focus of the killer. Detective Quinn and Malloy are to trying find out.

The story is given to us in multiple POV’s even the serial killer themself. Getting into the mind of a serial killers mind was intense and creepy for sure. Detective Quinn and is newly recruited partner DS Malloy but heads quite a bit, but I think their hearts are in the right place. Solve these murders at any cost. There were a couple of side characters that I really like, especially the medical examiner and Cora as well. It was a really good cast of some strong characters all working together.

The pacing of this doesn’t let up from the first page to the last. So many clues and twists are throughout on this one, and it sure takes you one hell of a ride piecing all of the clues together. It all lead up to one great ending. I am curious to see where these two detectives will take us on their next case. If I had one complaint, it would be that we don’t get to know these two very well, but it is the first book and hopefully we get to know a little more about them in the coming books.

Overall, this was was an intense and enthralling read. I am looking forward to the next installment. Fans of the suspense thrillers will definitely enjoy this one.

    I particularly enjoy mysteries that involve a detecting team. I like to get to know them, too, so hopefully you’ll get more as you go along. Yeah, that murder set up is creepy- in a good way for a fictional murder. 🙂
