A story that engages the brain as we attempt to deduct where the devious villain is hiding and where he'll strike next all the time worrying about the main characters who we know so well from previous novels. I love the characters who seem so real & who I don't want to see come to any harm. It kept me reading, well listening to Richard Armitage. The dilemma is that I want to get to the end when all is revealed but am disappointed I've finished another wonderful story without another directly to hand. Keep them coming please, Joy!

Story ok but narrator not so much

Although this was quite a good story leaning toward gruesome as Durant's murder mysteries tend to be, the narrator's way of reading it distracted me throughout and I've since read the others myself. He seems to add too much emphasis or inflection where it is unwarranted.

Loved the humour & character development in this.

Grainger is letting us get to know DC Smith better now & also allowing us to enjoy his interactions with his team and others. The humour was particularly good in this one & it was lovely to see Smith developing a friendship with a lady too. I really enjoy Gildart Jackson's narration; his timing is great & his tone of voice well matched to the characters. I'll be back for more DC Smith stories!

A gripping mystery that kept me reading.

A contemporary psychological thriller which became more intense as the story progressed. A gripping tale!

I was hooked from the first chapter.

The twists just kept coming and the writing & narrator had me feeling for the characters who were easy to relate to as real people. This was my first Kerry Wilkinson book but won't be the last for me.

A modern story with an unexpected twist.

The story goes on for a while with an annoying protagonist then goes off in what seems like a predictable direction but a clever twist near the end finishes it off well. The narration for Autumn grated on me at first but as the character improved, it didn't bother me as much.
