Book Review: Sleep Tight – Caroline Mitchell ****

Sleep Tight is the second outing for Detective Sergeant Ruby Preston. Ruby is a very unlikely copper having grown up with the East End gangs in London. Her liaison with well known gang boss Nathan Crosby is a very closely guarded secret.

Ruby finds herself with a dilemma when a nutter starts targeting local prostitutes and leaves their tortured and mutilated bodies dressed as Fairy Tale princesses. A routine drugs bust at the Crosby home reveals a gift box with the lungs and organs from one of the victims under Nathan’s bed. Who could get close enough to set him up?

Under pressure from Nathan’s unhinged brother Lenny to prove
the Crosby’s innocence and also from the police to get Nathan behind bars Ruby finds herself taking dangerous short cuts in order to apprehend the killer and close the case.

These are seriously dark stories and won’t be to everyone’s taste but they are gripping thrillers that prove compulsive reading.
Supplied by Net Galley and Bookouture in exchange for an
honest review.
