Follow The Leader by Mel Sherratt

You know you've picked a winner of a read when you can't stop thinking about the characters long after you put the book down.  My husband was asking me the other day which book I was reading at the moment and I completely delved into the whole story of Follow The Leader trying to explain who was who and what I couldn't figure out and all the little details - really it was just an extremely futile effort, as I just could barely wrap my own mind around everything.

But wow - so good.  It was intense, it was well-paced and it was insane.  And I honestly didn't even realize that I had read Book #2 in the DS Allie Shenton series!  Follow The Leader definitely stands just fine on it's own, but now I HAVE to pick up the first one, Taunting The Dead and keep my eyes pealed for #3.

Y'all, if you like a seriously intense & suspenseful read, you'll really enjoy this one!  Holy crap.  Thank you to NetGalley and Amazon Publishing for the opportunity to receive an advanced copy of Follow The Leader by Mel Sherratt.  You can pick up your copy when it releases on February 10th, by clicking here.  (*All opinions are my own and I was not compensated for this review.)

Description: A man’s body is found on a canal towpath. In his pocket, a plastic magnet in the shape of an E.

Days later, a second victim is found, this time with the letter V tucked into her clothing.

As the body count rises, the eerie, childlike clues point to a pattern that sends DS Allie Shenton and her colleagues into full alert.

The race is on. Allie and the team must work quickly to determine where the killer will strike next.

The rules are simple but deadly—to catch the killer, they must follow the leader.

From the acclaimed author of Taunting the Dead comes a flesh-creeping tale of a child's game with a terrifying, grown-up twist.

Rating: *****

Recommend: For reals.
