Inhaltsangabe

Blood stains the altar. Can she be found?

Paula Maguire, forensic psychologist is called in to investigate a missing girl and the disappearance of a holy relic in Claire McGowan's exhilarating fourth novel in the series, A Savage Hunter. The Paula Maguire series is sure to enthral fans of Stuart MacBride and Lee Child.

Victim: Female. Twenty-two years of age.

Reason for investigation: Missing person.

ID: Alice Morgan. Student. Last seen at a remote religious shrine in Ballyterrin.

Alice Morgan's disappearance raises immediate questions for forensic psychologist Paula Maguire. Alice, the daughter of a life peer in the Home Office, has vanished along with a holy relic - the bones of a saint - and the only trace is the bloodstains on the altar.

With no body to confirm death, the pressure in this high-profile case is all-consuming, and Paula knows that she will have to put her own life, including her imminent marriage, on hold, if they are to find the truth.

A connection to a decades-old murder immediately indicates that all may not be as it seems; as the summer heat rises and tempers fray, can Alice be found or will they learn that those that are hungry for vengeance may be the most savage of all?

Not her best

some clichees, some repetitions from previous books, some not so logical twists. as alice the speaker had a little bit too much tears and emotions in her voice for my taste. sometimes the speaker repeats sentences, that probibly should have edited. thats in all books from this series so far
