If you love thrillers and are looking for a new author to follow, look no further! Dolores Redondo’s pace and style pull you into the story from the first page and her protagonist Amaia Salazar is utterly superb – a beautiful, smart, bad-ass who has a sixth sense for the truth! There’s a reason why Redondo is renowned worldwide for her literary thrillers!

The North Face of the Heart is set in 2005 New Orleans around the time Hurricane Katrina is about to strike. A serial killer known as the Composer has been using natural disasters to provide the scenery for his kills, and it looks like his next destination is New Orleans.

The Composer isn’t the only demon Amaia needs to hunt down. Her past is raising its ugly head, threatening to steer her away from what’s most important – stopping the killer before he has the chance to arrange another of his deadly compositions.
