Book Review of “Let It Bleed (Lucy Collins Series Book 2)” by Francis Yamoah


Blurb:

A BLOOD THIRSTY KILLER HAS TAKEN HIS FIRST VICTIM AND HE’S GOING TO KILL AGAIN.
On what becomes her last day as a uniformed police officer, Lucy Collins discovers the body of a woman at a construction site while on patrol.
THE INVESTIGATION TEAM IS FAST RUNNING OUT OF LEADS AND TIME.
The next day Lucy gets the news she’d been waiting for. She’s been promoted to Detective and she joins the CID team investigating the murder of the woman whose body she’d discovered. But every hopeful lead comes to a dead-end with no new ones on the horizon.
AND THE KILLER’S NEXT TARGET IS ONE OF THE INVESTIGATION TEAM.
Let It Bleed is a thrilling second installment of a highly enjoyable series.

Genre: Mystery / Suspense / Detective / Murder / Police / Thriller / Serial Killer
My Review:

Although this is the 2nd book in the series, the story basically goes back to the time before the first book. So the book is a prequel to The Good Day. In the first book, we see Lucy Collins as an already perfect detective. In this book, we get to know the training she undergoes to become that perfect detective. The book starts with Lucy being a uniformed police officer. But very soon into the book, she becomes Detective and the fun begins.

The story is about a psychologically deranged serial killer who targets women. Lucy coincidentally comes across the first victim and soon takes up the case as her own. The way a lady detective is portrayed is, although stereotypical in a way, but still inspiring and fun to read. Lucy is shown as a bold character who is not scared of anyone or anything. The way she goes over to an isolated house and looks around with a colleague is truly inspiring and interesting to read. The killer is also a creation, which again although is expected, but the details and reasoning for the way of the state of mind is wonderful and gives a lot of insight into psychology.

The only thing that put me off was the way the story ended. Since the focus was on Lucy and how strong she is, the story could have followed the trend right till the end and showcased her to be inferior to none. But other than that, Lucy Collins is an amazing detective and truly one to be followed for all the upcoming books in the series.
