When a serial killer, The Director, starts snatching young women off the street to “act” in his movies, Jessica is tasked with apprehending him. It’s her first major case and the opportunity to prove that she’s not just the token woman promoted to satisfy the PC brigade. The Director’s victims are all of a type: barely legal, blonde, and beautiful. As the body count rises, Jessica is fast losing confidence. With no clues to go on and a boss who’s just willing her to screw up, she’s also losing sleep, and possibly her husband, too. Who can blame her if she starts to find a little too much comfort at the bottom of a bottle? But Jessica Wideacre is no pushover; she doesn’t suffer fools gladly. She will earn respect. And she will get her man. Meanwhile, The Director has another victim in his sights, and this one, a famous movie star, is real special. He’s going to make her a star.
I really enjoyed reading this, the characters were well=written and felt like real characters. What drew me into the book was that "The Director" was killing based on a movie, and I really enjoyed that. The mystery in the book with who is killing the people had me guessing til the reveal. I hope there is more in the series and more from the author as I really enjoyed reading this book. 5 out of 5 stars
