Ice Cold Alice by CP Wilson

May 25, 2017

 

The Blurb

 

They thought that they had all the power, until she took it from them.

A killer hunts abusive spouses, blogging about their sins post-kill. Soon the murders and the brazen journaling draws the attention of Police Scotland's CID. 

This killer works with surgical preparation, precision and skill, using a unique weapon of her own and never leaves a trace of evidence behind. 

Edinburgh's DI Kathy McGuire, nearing the end of her career, begins the hunt for the murderer as a media frenzy erupts. But McGuire might have met her match… 

What has led this killer to take the law into her own hands? 

Is the woman accountable really a cold-hearted killer or a desperate vigilante?

“Alice is truly a unique killer. I was cheering her on, and then I felt guilty for doing that. Emotions were all over the place. There are surprises here and there and twists that you never see coming.” – Linda Strong, Top 200 Goodreads reviewer.

My Review

 

This is a tale of two really strong women. A serial killer, who records details of her kills on a blog under the name of Tequila Mockingbird, and DI Kathy McGuire, whose story of her early police career and her role as a DI is integral to the plot. 
I make no apologies for rooting for the serial killer as she targets abusers of women doling out some really rough justice. 
There is a sequel afoot, and I will be looking out for it because I want more!
