The nation is gripped by the infamous ‘Ragdoll Killer’. Your friends, your family and your neighbours are all talking about it
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?
I enjoyed this story, even though it was tough to get past the thought of a killer stitching body parts of different victims together. (Yes, even for me!) The Ragdoll Killer was ingenious, the plot unique, especially the methods the killer uses when attempting to kill the victims on his list.
I felt for the main character, Detective Fawkes ‘Wolf’, who, as well as being #6 on the list was personally involved in preventing the deaths of others on the list.
This story also explores what can happen when the press gets too involved and publicises a murderer’s intentions step by step.
Very ingenious plotting by the author, well done.
