Publisher's Summary

What's wrong, killer got your tongue?   

It's DC Sean Blake's first week on the job, but already he faces a series of brutal and bizarre killings: women are being strangled in their homes, each with a mobile phone forced down their throat. There are never any signs of a struggle or forced entry. The Greater Manchester Police have no leads.   

Blake can't afford to waste any time - even as he picks apart the disturbing motive behind the murders, the case takes a turn for the personal. Can he stop the killer before another woman is silenced forever?

Great crime procedural!

It's DC Sean Blake's first day on the job as part of a task force assigned to find a suspect murdering women. He quiets them by suffocating them, cutting out their tongues and shoving their cell phone down their throat. In the process of trying to arrest the suspect, his new partner is stabbed in the neck multiple times and everyone blames Sean. Sean's mom, Janet is a former patrol officer who was injured on the job. She takes pride in her son following in her footsteps and likes to help him in any way that she can, even if it could end up being detrimental to his career. Loose Tongues is an action packed crime procedural that is a great beginning to this new series. I enjoyed the suspense that kept me up late at night turning pages when I should have been sleeping. The story was told from Sean, his mother and the killer's perspectives, which added to the intrigue and entertainment. I look forward to future books in this series.

Disappointing

The main character was beyond thick and the storyline was predictable. I would not recommend this book.
