THE VAULT BY KAREN LONG ~~~~BLOG TOUR~~~~

THE VAULT
BY KAREN LONG
Genre: Mystery / thriller / crime
Eleanor Raven Series: 2
VAULT: A large room or chamber used for storage of valuables, especially an underground one…

In the unrelenting heat of the Toronto summer, a fire at a land-fill site uncovers the remains of a local prostitute. But the post-mortem reveals disturbing details –the body has been preserved and is not who or what it seems.

DI Eleanor Raven is back on duty six months after barely surviving being kidnapped and tortured by a depraved serial killer. Work is her sanctuary but she’s carrying deep scars – mental as well as physical. Where do you go when the place you feel safest is also the place where you are most at risk?
As Eleanor battles her own demons, it looks as though a killer in the city is making a gruesome human collection. And Eleanor’s fight to save the last victim of the Collector becomes a battle to save herself.

Praise for the first novel in the Eleanor Raven series:
Most fictional detectives these days have to have a ‘thing’ to set them apart from the others, and Raven’s is one of the most original for a long time. The plot moves in some unexpected directions, and builds to a genuinely exciting climax. The Safe Word is an impressive, confident debut. Convincing characters and some nice twists make for a compelling, satisfying thriller, and I look forward to seeing what’s next for Eleanor Raven. Killing Time



My thoughts
After reading The Safe Word and loving it  I couldn't wait to read the Vault which is the second book in the Eleanor Raven series. Which I Devoured in one day.This one dark gritty read, I absolutely love this series.
So in The Vault DI Eleanor Raven is back on duty six months after barely surviving being kidnapped and tortured by a depraved serial killer. Work is her sanctuary but she’s carrying deep scars – mental as well as physical. Where do you go when the place you feel safest is also the place where you are most at risk?
As Eleanor battles her own demons, it looks as though a killer in the city is making a gruesome human collection. And Eleanor’s fight to save the last victim of the Collector becomes a battle to save herself.
I was totally gripped from the first page Karen Long certainly knows how to keep the reader's attention. In this story we get to know more of Eleanor. I love her dark strong original character she has issues but I can totally relate to her nothing in her life is plain sailing which is one of the things that makes this series unique. I can't wait to see how her relationship develops with Detective Whitefoot and I feel there is a lot more to come with his character has we don't really know his past.   

This can definitely be read as a standalone although it's too good a series not to read The Safe Word first. Which  I highly recommend giving it 5 massive stars. Karen Long is certainly an author to look out for. I can't wait to read the next installment.
