Portraits of the Dead blurb
Emma didn’t know how long he hid in the large Victorian wardrobe to the side of her single bed. She didn’t know how long he peered between the two heavy oak doors, and watched, as she slowly drifted into fitful sleep. She didn’t know what time he pushed the doors open and crept towards her in the darkness of the night.
Detective Inspector Gravel finds himself faced with a difficult case when a local nineteen-year-old university student is abducted and imprisoned by a sadistic serial killer, who has already tortured and killed at least five young women.
Can Gravel find the girl and stop the murderer?
He will learn that the greater the evil, the deadlier the game…

This was one shock of a book. The darkness and despair just made the fear hit home even more.
The writing was superb and the characters just were amazing. I loved the detective Gravel he just is so rough that you have to pull for him.
Gravel is one of the better detectives I have read about and he is a very interesting character who is not by any way a perfect cop but at least he tries.
The story was dark and I am really looking forward to the next book which I must soon read. What a thriller.
