I’ve been watching you DS Alice Parr.

I saw you trying to save the poor young woman you found in the park.

The woman I tried to kill.

I’ve been waiting for you to find her family. To find someone who cares about her.

But you can’t can you?

You’ve never had a case like this.

I know everything about you. You know nothing about me.

Even though I’m the man you’re looking for.

And you will never catch me…


What a rollercoaster ride! A thrill a minute - I loved it.
Clare Mackintosh
This transatlantic thriller has elements of Bourne and Lee Child while remaining true to its British police procedural roots. Beautifully written, expertly paced and highly entertaining.
Sinead Crowley
Fast-moving. Unexpected twists. Punchy writing. This author has teeth! A perfect thriller for winter nights!
Jane Corry, author of The Dead Ex
A real white-knuckle ride of a thriller that packs a big emotional punch. This is top class crime writing.
Tammy Cohen
Pacy, emotional and a cracking read!

A darkly brilliant tale of psychological manipulation, which I was entirely hooked by, from page one. Bravo, Emma!
Kate Rhoades
I absolutely loved it. I was completely hooked from the start, it was a stunning read. Plus the ending blew me away.
Rebecca Bradley
Wow. Whether you like fast-paced thrillers or in-depth (spot-on) character-led mysteries, you're going to love To Catch a Killer by Emma Kavanagh. LOVED it.
Caz Frear
To Catch A Killer is one of my favourite books of the year. The intricate, clever story is told well, and the characters are brilliantly drawn.
Rachel Abbott
To Catch a Killer is a pacy cat-and-mouse thriller with real depth and a protagonist I want to go for a drink with. A brilliant character-driven story perfect for anyone who adores a twisting, turning read. I loved it.
Amanda Jennings
Absorbing page-turner that delivers the twists.
Sunday Times Crime Club
Effortlessly turns and twists, all the while ratcheting up the tension.
I absolutely raced through it and loved every minute of the heart-pounding cat-and-mouse chase. DS Alice Parr is brilliant, three-dimensional, and utterly memorable, and I can't wait to see more of her soon.
Elle Croft
Perfect for fans of tense thrillers.
Exceptional. Simply exceptional as crime/ thriller reads go. This is just a very clever read; perfect if you love detective dramas.
Woman's Way
One of the key ingredients in modern bestsellers is the woman-in-peril story. Exciting
The Tablet
Twists and turns abound in Emma Kavanagh's heart-pounding police procedural thriller, which introduces a compelling new lead in the form of DS Alice Parr ... a frightening game of cat and mouse with a killer who's watching her every move. Just when you think you've got the measure of the story, Kavanagh throws another curveball that will leave you slack-jawed. Be prepared to read this in one sitting.
