Description

She studied English at Cambridge University and received an MA in creative writing from the University of East Anglia. A Killer in the Family takes a look at a really fascinating modern aspect of policing which seems to be just beginning to become more utilised here in the UK – that is the use of DNA databases that are generally used to find long lost family or ancestors but instead using them to identify the family of criminal suspects.

When the police decide to use DNA as an investigative tool to hunt for their suspect, they find a close link to the DNA that Aisling has just uploaded. It was to the Bonfire Killer, someone who had the residents of Southampton terrified, after two murders where the women’s bodies were set on fire. Next in the lineup in how this book couldn’t have been better were the ever consistent, well-drawn characters. I normally never, ever, ever pick up ARCs months before their actual release, but for this one, I was willing to break my own rules. There’s a hunt for a serial killer going on and a drop of blood from a crime scene shows a close match to her.The ending didn't thrill me because I'm not a fan of cliffhangers - and there are two gobsmackers here. She is also a single parent who blogs about the ridiculousness of bringing up a mega-nerd small boy. Two weeks later, Sheen's CID team's focus moves squarely to Aisling and her family, as the DNA she submitted to Globalry has been matched within a completely unrealistic timeframe!

A few days later, someone knocks on her door, but unfortunately, the man who wants answers from her is not her father. And not asking for a rush on a swab from someone who admitted they were at the scene of the crime while it was all poppin off AND interacted with the corpse?Assuming the perpetrator is male, that leaves Aisling facing the cold, hard fact that one of the three most important men in her life just may also happen to be evil personified. The story is tight, tense and utterly addictive, I was rushing to reach the conclusion whilst trying not to miss any of the clues that we had been given. The actual mystery was also excellent - twisty and turny in a logical way, although the DNA ramifications and the inter-relatedness (or not) of the characters made my brain hurt at times.
