The second in a new series featuring DCI Monika Paniatowski - Nothing could have prepared DCI Monika Paniatowski for this. It's not that the man's throat has been cut, or that he is naked, that shocks her - it's the way his corpse has been so carefully posed. Is the killer sending a message? If so, to who? Saddled with a colleague she doesn't trust, and watched by an old enemy, Monika realises that whatever the murderer's message is, he will not stop killing until she understands.

This is the second book in a series which is a continuation of a previous detective series, using a supporting character from that one as its main character. Unfortunately, this story is even less compelling than the first one.

I think the author is trying to fashion a Jane Tennyson (Prime Suspect) and portray some of the struggles of a female chief who leads an all-male squad. Monika Paniatowski is flawed but, unfortunately, not likeable and just sounds whiny and resentful.

I was originally drawn to these books after seeing a main character with a Polish name in a Brit novel as well as a woman pioneer taking the lead in a male dominated field. It's not really enough to keep my interest.
