The Safe Word - Karen Long

The Safe WordThe Safe Word by Karen Long
My rating: 4 of 5 stars

'There are rules that every player of every game must abide by, no matter how dangerous the sport.

Toronto has become the backdrop to a macabre set of artistic installations: women kidnapped, tortured and horrifically displayed by a killer with a vision.

Only someone capable of understanding the killer's creative desire will be able to stop the murders and D I Eleanor Raven is uniquely qualified. Driven by a complex personality she pursues only the facts, only the things she can see, but never casts a judgement.

But she also has a dark and dangerous secret - one that will threaten her very survival.'

I was sent The Safe Word, in exchange for an honest review.

I love discovering new crime stories and authors, I was very excited to begin reading this one. The Safe Word follows DI Eleanor Raven. Right from the beginning I was hooked, Eleanor has a secret that she is hiding from everyone especially her colleagues, this secret could destroy her and put her in a lot of danger.

Eleanor is put on a case, a serial killer is killing and wrapping bodies in plastic. She needs to find the link and stop him before other girls turn up dead.

The Safe Word, is written brilliantly it flows very easily and the pace is excellent. Unfortunately I didn't have time to read this in one sitting, although this didn't effect the enjoyment of the book I sometimes found it hard to remember who was who as there are many characters.

I was gripped right from the first few pages and wondered how it all linked together. This is an excellent crime book as a typical who dun it. If you enjoy crime I would recommend you to read this book. I would also be interested in reading more from this author - especially others in the Eleanor Raven series. (I am hoping there will be others)

I would like to thank the publisher once again for sending this copy for me to review.
