Very ordinary and predictable.

A truly obvious whodunnit - for most of the book I was thinking "how stupid are these cops?"

None of the regular cast of characters are particularly beguiling and the author should really steer clear of trying to write from a female perspective (i.e. the "love interest" of DS Costello").

The narrator does an excellent job as far as acting and accents go. But he has an annoying habit which someone should really point out to him. If a new sentence begins with a person's name, he does this EVERY TIME: "O'Hare?!...[long pause] sipped his tea", "Anderson?!...[long pause] looked up", "Costello?!...[long pause] shifted in her chair". Nine hours of that and I was ready to scream!

Absolute page turner

Fantastic plot twists turns and excellent characters narration as usual evocative.
The winter setting added creepiness

A brilliant listen

I am really pleased to have discovered Caro Ramsay. These are gripping, complex novels, where the main plot lines are carefully woven and developed and the sub stories, through the lives and characters of the squad that develop and conflict are all brilliantly dramatised. These details of a life always support, never detract from, the work of the novel, which is to desperately unravel and end the case. Short on food and sleep, the whole department, even the stray dog, move the plot onward, sometimes with the syncopation of great team work, sometimes despite themselves, and each other. I am, of course, downloading the next in the series right now!

Good storyline

Really enjoyed this. Narration was brilliant. One or two characters are a bit weak, didn't take much notice of those, in my opinion, completely unnecessary.
Overall, a good story, nice twists and turns. Wonder if you'll work out who-did-it?

Thank goodness it's J MacPhearson narratinh

I really love Caro Ramsey's books. This series is dark, complex, layered and gritty. It's got everything and I was so excited about getting stuck into the 12 books but then......the narrator changed. What???? Why???? Nothing against them but it's just the change to a female narrator is jarring. Be fine if they started as such. I had to return the previous Night Hunter. Now I see there's only one more narrated by James. Ugh. I will only purchase that one sadly. The rest...if only.

A Must to Buy

Thoroughly recommend this book. it has everything in it you could wish for. Exciting until the last page. I thought I had guessed the plot several times only to be wrong. I felt I knew the characters that are so well described by James Macpherson, one of my favourite narrators. . This is the first book I have read/listened to by Caro Ramsay and I am away to download another.
