Little Bones by Patricia Gibney (Detective Lottie Parker No. 10)
Though this is No.. 10 in the Detective Lottie Parker series, this does very well as a stand alone.
Isabelle Gallagher is found murdered, her throat slashed, a razor blade in her hand whilst her infant daughter
is screaming in her cot. The baby is unharmed. Detective Lottie Parker is on the scene and what she unravels with
a belligerent husband, a mother who is hiding something and a very quiet, unassuming victim who obviously incurred
the wrath of someone to meet a death like this.
No clues are apparent, the killer was clever but when another mother and son go missing and when the body turns up
again with razor blades on the scene there seems to be a connection, however tenuous it is. Connecting the dots and
turning up a trail is not easy for these victims who led lives with no history and who lived almost under the radar.
A good thriller, well written holding one's interest from start to finish.
