The first in James Carol's thrilling Jefferson Winter series, Broken Dolls offers rapid-fire suspense and a chilling look into the mind of a criminal - and into the mind of the one man who might be able to catch him.

Ex-FBI star profiler Jefferson Winter is no ordinary investigator. An eccentric genius and self-described geek with a passion for Mozart, he is haunted by the legacy of his notorious serial killer father...and not likely to admit this may be why he has such a phenomenal insight into the psychology that drives the criminals he hunts.

The former G-man is now a sought after freelance consultant, jetting around the globe helping local law enforcement agencies with their toughest cases. When Detective Investigator Mark Hatcher calls from Scotland Yard about a particularly disturbing case, Winter leaves his native California for the chilly streets of London to help track down a sadistic serial kidnapper.

Four victims, all young women, all tortured and then lobotomised. None of them able to tell the police the name of their attacker. None of them able to live normal lives again. Just broken dolls, played with then discarded.

When another young woman goes missing, Winter has to race against the clock to identify the attacker and find the latest victim before it's too late.

James Carol's breakout debut novel takes readers on an action-packed rollercoaster ride that fans of Criminal Minds, Silence of the Lambs, Sleepy Head, and the Jack Reacher and Alex Cross series won't want to miss.

More Jefferson Winter Thrillers:

    Drawn to this by reading other reviews. They were not wrong, a good read that kept me up late consuming the next chapter. I'm off to get the next in the series.

    Great Novel, well written with a plot that keeps you turning the page right up until the very end. I also have to say value for money also! If you love a good crime-thriller, buy this book. I look forward to reading more of Jame's novels.
  • Cliche after cliche after cliche

    By Selhpets
    This book is pretty piss poor. The main character is a cop with unconventional techniques cliche. His tough and surprisingly sexy police offsider is a cliche. This whole book is painful reading. Lazy lazy piece of writing. If only I'd had this book in hard copy so it could at least served as kindling or something else useful. Instead I'm left raging at this horrible writing and nothing to show for it but two wasted hours.

    Words cannot explain how good this book was! I used to like these kind of books but I stopped reading them and moved onto the romance books. This has made me love mystery all over again! You have to read this!
  • Engrossing!

    By djnider
    The writer reveals just enough information to make you think you know where the story is going, and then when you're feeling pleased with yourself: reveals what's really happening. To quote from the book, 'All the best lies contain an element of truth.' Also, make sure you don't overlook the FBI report.
  • Great reading
