Publisher's Summary

An investigation leads DI Kelly Porter back to her former command...and the ex who betrayed her.

A brutal murder in the Lake District. A double assassination in a secret lab in London’s West End. Seemingly unconnected, unexpected links between the gruesome crimes emerge, and it’s up to DI Kelly Porter to follow the trail - all the way to the capital. 

Back among old colleagues and forced to work alongside her calculating ex, DCI Matt Carter, Kelly must untangle a web of deceit that stretches into the highest echelons of power - a place where secrets and lies are currency and no obstacle is insurmountable.

Rackel Lynch & Clare Kissane

Rachel: The story lines in this series so far have been good although a little predictable, but I will continue to listen to the flowing books in this series.
NOW please have Clare try to improve her attempts at the male voices in these stories; her attempts at older English gentlemen's voices is almost cosmical at times and is distracting from the feel and text of the stories.
I am sorry if this sounds hard, but your caricters are being let down buy the reader. The performance score would have been a 2star if the program had let me mark it as such.
Sorry, but it is very distracting from the text.

Gripping ingenious and timely

This is an outstanding crime novel. What a great series. The locations are lovingly described. The characters are interesting and real. The underlying premise of the murders is all too real. I highly recommend this to anyone who enjoys gripping, conspiracy based police mysteries.

Great book, terrible recording quality

I’ve been enjoying the whole Kelly Porter series, but they all suffer from distorted recording to a greater or lesser extent. In these days of digital recording, this is totally inexcusable. It’s a shame as the stories are great and so is the narration.

Really enjoyed this story!

I think that this is the best plot yet. One more book to go in this series. I hope that Rachel Lynch will come up with a few more story lines for this series, with Clare Kissane narrating.

LOVE it ALL... but

I just love the series, the author & the narrator. I'm dying to give it 5, so why a 4? Potty mouths do not bother me at all. And I'm far from a fanatic, but why is it OK to use Jesus' name as an expletive? Does any other segment in a diverse community tolerate something similar? I literally flinch each time I hear it. Especially because it is used so generously, nearly exclusively, in these books. I heard 'the F word' ONCE & it was refreshing! Having someone slap you several times a conversation surely puts a damper on the enjoyment of the novel.

Fabulous series!

There are so many "DI" books out there, and most of the ones I've read are average at best. The Kelly Porter series is on an entirely different level. The main character is tough, good at her job, and while flawed (like every human being) she's not unpleasant. She's not a raging alcoholic, she doesn't treat her family and co-workers horribly, and she's capable of maintaining a steady romantic relationship with very little drama. These books are substantial when many others fall flat. This one tackles big pharma, and is beautifully read, as always, by Clare Kissane (who sounds very similar to the talented Lucy Price-Lewis). I'm so glad I found this author. I highly recommend the entire series.

How big Pharma always wins

My favourite of the series so far. Just so close to the truth it's uncomfortable

Love this series

I like the main characters in this series, hearing their back stories, and getting to know a tiny bit about life in the Lake District. This story had a really thought provoking plot, was reasonably plausible, and complicated enough to make my brain hurt. The narrator is excellent too. Highly recommended.

Bit hard to follow

I found this hard to follow, almost too much going on. I still like this series, but this is definitely not my favourite.
