Book Review { Fade to Dead }

*I received a copy of this book from NetGalley in exchange for my honest review, all opinions are of my own*

Synopsis: A serial killer, The Director, is on the loose in South London. He's snatching young women off the street to 'act' in his movies. He's got a type: barely legal, blonde and beautiful. Newly promoted DI Jessica Wideacre is tasked with heading up the investigation. But with few clues to go on and a rising body count, Jessica begins to fear she isn't up to the job. Her boss is breathing down her neck. Her marriage is in jeopardy and the pressure is driving her to drink. Meanwhile, The Director has another victim in his sights. He's rolled out the red carpet, he s got a killer script, and now he s got his star. It's a dream role...but who will die to get it?

I have really been enjoying thrillers lately and this book did not disappoint! I really enjoy books that I really feel like I can know the characters and the description and the in depth writing of the characters let me into their world. The main character DI Wideacre was portrayed as a believable character, I was immediately drawn to her character. 

There are some mystery/thriller books that at some point in the book you feel like you may be able to guess what happens but with this story line I had absolutely no idea until the final pages. I love books like these because it always keeps me on my toes and leaves me wanting to read more. 

If you are looking for a crime novel to read I would recommend this book, 4 out of 5 rating!
