series debut for some context Devouring and thoroughly enjoying that piece, I knew that Adam Southward would be an author I would be adding to my ongoing reading list, with his captivating plot and well paced narrative It has been a year since Dr Alex Madison handled a major case from the Met While that one did not turn out as well as he expected, he has returned to consult once again This case is a little different, but just as baffling CCTV footage shows someone sneaking into the AE of a London hospital and inflicting a great deal of pain to a waiting patient, so much so that it leads to an excruciating death It would seem that this is not the first case of such an attach around London hospitals, but no one is entirely clear who this person is or what their motive could be On the flip side, the reader is introduced to Mia Anastos, a young woman who can feel no pain, but revels in seeing it inflicted on others She hides in the shadows and professes that she is on a mission to seek revenge for her pain Mia s targeted victims are only the first step in this complex web, as Madison finds her name on a list that matches her description While Mia evades capture, she is being controlled by a larger group with hopes of neutralsing Dr Madison themselves As the psychology of pain comes to the forefront, Madison has a personal life in tatters that requires his additional attention A great second novel in the series that keeps the reader hooked until the final reveal, leaving them begging forAdam Southward has great control over the series and its characters, tapping into the psychological and opening new areas of interest to the reader Recommended to those who love quick thrillers, particularly the reader who finds matters of the mind of interest.I powered through the first novel, in hopes that it would hold my attention enough to want to get to this ARC in quick order Mission accomplished, as Adam Southward is able to mix a well crafted thriller with strong psychological themes to keep the reader curious throughout Alex Madison remains an intriguing character, easily liked by the reader He is on point when it comes to his private practice and work with the police, though some find his insights too hard to comprehend or off the wall, thereby dismissing him In a personal life that is anything but in order, Madison is forced to wrestle with a dark secret of his own, while trying to track down where to turn next in this highly unusual case His relationship with his daughter is addressed yet again, as is the strained connection to his ex wife Madison has a great deal of growth to go and one can hope Southward will keep readers informed as the series grows Other characters help to augment the excitement in this book, both with the case and through subplots that Southward uses to cut the tension One can hope there will be some repeat appearances, as Alex Madison seems to have clicked its some and clashed with others Southward uses a quick narrative, permitting the reader to learn a great deal in short order The pain them resonates throughout and kept me wondering as the narrative built up to a big reveal Southward has proven he can handle psychological thrillers and police procedurals that mesh together effectively I cannot wait to see what else is to come for Southward and Dr Alex Madison.Kudos, Mr Southward, for another great single day read I am eagerly awaiting your next literary idea, but will be as patient as I must.Love hate the review An ever growing collection of others appears at Book for All Seasons, a

was part of a series Although there are references to the first book, it doesn t put you off enjoying the story I ve never heard of people who like to inflictpain being an addiction before There are some gory and stomach churning descriptive moments The pace is fast and it did hold my attention from the beginning The story is told from Alex perspective The tension builds throughout the story I don t know how I missed the first book in this series, ut i will need to read it before i read any i this very promising series I would like to thank NetGalley,Publishing UK and the author Adam Southward for my ARC in exchange for an honest review I received this book thru a Goodreads giveaway in exchange for a honest review I would like to thank the author and the publishing company for their generosity.This is the second novel of a series but it can be read as a stand alone In this one, we follow a young girl that is addicted to the suffering of others She visits those already in

this one, we follow a young girl that is addicted to the suffering of others She visits those already in suffering and adds to it The police are searching for this suspect and they utilized a psychologist in their search.I believe this is the second published book by this author and if this book is any indication for this author he has bright career to look forward to I would classify this book as part psychological thriller and part medical thriller Right away I was interested in the proceedings and I wanted to find out about our suspect and what her motivations were even when she was acting out in a sadistic and graphic way The main character, Alex, is interesting too as he assisting the police but he is flawed also as he has problems too I liked how this book touches upon unsupervised medical research and also upon whether the antagonist is responsible for her actions or the actual culprits the people who made her what she is Throughout I thought this was going to be a five star rating but the ending didn t do it for me The author is making this part of an overall arc and I didn t care for that I believe this should have been a self contained story with all the plots being resolved.This was my introduction to this author and I am impressed I am so impressed I will read the first book in this series even though it is not needed for this offering I will also be on the lookout for future books in this series as I amthan interested in the main character and his future adventures
