You'd think that multiple 40C or thereabouts days in a row would mean reading time.  The problem is staying conscious during that sort of heat (all you want to do is nap).  Then there are the frequent outside trips to house down poultry houses and yards, and check on Alpacas, sniff the air and check the horizons for fire.  Still - this is one of the books that I'm reading at the moment, and let's just say that the opening chapter is not for the squeamish.

From the Blurb:

A sickening killer is on the loose - a killer like no other.  This murderer targets heavily pregnant women, drugging them and brutally removing their unborn babies.

When DI Phil Brennan is called to the latest murder scene, he knows he has entered the world of the most depraved killer he has ever encountered.  After a loveless, abused childhood, Phil knows evil well, but nothing in his life has prepared him for this.

Opening Lines:

There was a knock at the door.  Claire Fielding and Julie Simpson looked at each other, surprised.  Claire started to rise.
