The Custard Corpses by M J Porter


Gripping but also totally creepy
The sister of a murdered boy comes to the police station every year on the date of his death to see if there has been any developments in his case, now 20 years later there seems like there could be a link with another murder elsewhere in the country and it will take all of Chief Inspector Sam Mason and Constable O’Rourke’s skills to solve the case 
Sam and O’Rourke are a brilliant team and work together really well. They see patterns and as they get further into the investigation their working relationship gets much stronger but they also allow others to have an input and it’s Sam’s wife who makes a key connection thanks to the input of a Scottish officer
This story is fast paced and kept me on my toes with twists and turns at every corner making it impossible to put down. Seeing how the case unfolded was fascinating and I know that I wouldn’t have been able to figure it out, but I was very invested in knowing what would happen next 
I’m not going to lie, the crimes in this book are really high on the creepy scale and it has freaked me out quite a bit which I think reflects the writing style and the nature of the story. I haven’t been this unnerved by a book in a long time and may need to sleep with the light on tonight
It’s so compelling and I think this book would appeal to those who enjoy detective stories with brilliant characters and a story that will pull you in and not let you go
