Synopsis: 

While attending a crime scene on the outskirts of Maidstone, DI Kay Hunter makes a shocking discovery.

The victim has been brutally cut to pieces, his identity unknown.

When more body parts start turning up in the Kentish countryside, Kay realises the disturbing truth - a serial killer is at large and must be stopped at all costs. With no motive for the murders and a killer who has gone undetected until now, Kay and her team of detectives must work fast to calm a terrified local population and a scornful media.

When a third victim is found, her investigation grows even more complicated.

As she begins to expose a dark underbelly to the county town, Kay and her team are pulled into a web of jealousy and intrigue that, if left unchecked, will soon claim another life.

Review:

Kay has been promoted to Detective Inspector leaving her with even more on her plate and Sharp is back to work. I realize that I think I like these books because they aren't this sensational breakneck mystery.  They are slower and more methodical, somewhat like Scandinavian mysteries that I love so much.

I love Kay's partner Adam, the vet who frequently brings his work home with him for short stays, this time its a goat, with a desire for the plants in the back garden.

While this murder scene is particularly gruesome there is a lot of gallows humor that takes away the squeamishness. I love these police procedural's and like watching the characters evolve book to book.
