London, England. 

A woman’s body is discovered in a home-made grave in a church cemetery. Her torso has been mutilated beyond recognition, and a hole has been cut in her chest to expose her motionless heart. 

The murder echoes the crimes of a legendary, uncaptured serial killer known as the Heart Collector. 

Private detective Alex Rainer believes this to be a copycat killer attempting to strike fear throughout London. However, there’s one problem.

The heart inside the victim’s chest doesn’t belong to her. It belongs to the Heart Collector’s last known victim, killed thirty years prior. 

In order to track down the killer, Alex must navigate a bizarre, underground world of collectors and serial killer enthusiasts to track down the perpetrator. He must locate the detectives who worked on the original case three decades ago to uncover secrets which have been lost to the ages. It seems that a long-dead mystery has returned to life. 

Alex finds himself on the trail of an elusive, walking obscurity with the ability to simply disappear into the shadows. A brutal, sadistic monster who literally toys with women’s hearts. A killer for whom love and hate are the same.

    It was a strong story, hard to put down. It brought up some chuckles, some sadness, and some anger at how realistic it is. Certainly makes you think, not just of the story, but the people we see everyday.
