“Omg!! This was just such a pleasure to read, in a dark and twisted way! It's such a breath of fresh air and so original… starts with a bang and never lets up… Amazing.” Reader review, ⭐⭐⭐⭐⭐

From the Sunday Times and international bestselling author of Ragdoll, comes a heart-in-your-mouth unputdownable thriller that will keep you up all night!

They call him the Jackdaw. On each body, he leaves a chilling signature: five scratches. And each time he kills, he takes a trophy, an eerie collection that grows with every strike.

No one knows what he looks like, where he'll strike next, or why. He could be your neighbour, your boss… your husband. There’s only a paralysing fear that, whoever he is, he's out there: watching, waiting.

Detective Scarlett Delaney’s neck prickles every time she hears the name Jackdaw. And now she’s been tasked with hunting him down before he kills again. But as she ventures deeper into a murky world of half-truths and clever lies, chasing the scant clues that Jackdaw leaves behind, Scarlett realises she isn't just hunting a killer. She's on his list.

Soon the lines between prey and predator begin to blur, and Scarlett discovers that trusting those around her might be her final, deadly mistake…

A totally gripping crime thriller with an AMAZING twist. If you loved Thirteen by Steve Cavanagh, The Chain by Adrian McKinty or anything by Jennifer Hillier you will race through Jackdaw.
