Wishlist Wednesday #13

Welcome to my thirteenth Wishlist Wednesday post for this great blog hop hosted by Dani at Pen to Paper 

This week my WW book is Deadly Obsession by D.S Butler (part of the DS Jack Mackinnon crime series)


A young Polish girl fixated on fame ~ A killer with a deadly obsession

DS Jack Mackinnon has his work cut out trying to track down missing student, Anya Blonski. As Mackinnon follows the trail of obsession to the shady owners of the Star Academy, who thrive on society's obsession with reality TV shows, he realises the fame they offer comes at a price.

When a second girl goes missing from the same academy, Mackinnon is forced to consider a serial killer may be stalking the city.

I've chosen this book because it's the first in a series of books and by an author I've not read before. I was interested to read that the author has a PhD in biochemistry. She has worked in the chemistry department of Oxford Uni, in the NHS as well as a hospital pathology laboratory and from what I understand this comes across in her books. You all know I'm a sucker for following a series through and I'm always on the lookout for authors whose work I enjoy and this seems just like my kind of thing!
