Publisher's Summary

You can cover up the truth, but it won’t stay buried forever.

A man is found bludgeoned to death in woodland by the village of Canwick, and the close-knit community is sent into shock. Detective Karen Hart, still haunted by the tragic loss of her husband and daughter nearby, is brought in to investigate the horrific murder.

It soon becomes clear that dark secrets lie behind Canwick’s unspoiled appearance. When Hart begins to suspect that a modern-day slavery ring has been hiding in plain sight among the villagers, she faces a race to find proof before the culprits slip from her grasp. But when key witnesses start disappearing, it’s obvious that there’s a deep-rooted conspiracy to keep prying eyes away from the truth.

But in a village where everyone knows everyone, who knows more than they are letting on - and who can Hart really trust? She’s in deep and she’s never been more alone. She must confront the tragedy of her own past if she wants to catch the killers before it’s too late. Because one thing’s for certain - there’s no turning back...

couldn't get through

I normally like this narrator, but not this time. I couldn't tell which character was speaking most of the time. Some of the voices were exactly the same. Had to give up halfway through because of that.

Decent Story but Narrator Needs Work

I enjoyed the plot overall,l. Some plot points were a bit too obvious. Narrator was good at times, but I found it hard to distinguish the female protagonist voice from the lead male characters. Why did she make the female protagonist voice so deep? It was very unnatural sounding.

Good but a little slow

I enjoy this series but this is not my favorite. It was quite slow to get started for me and, frankly, I had a hard time keeping track of the characters. I find that happens more often when I listen to an audiobook. But despite all that, the story was interesting but a little slow. Narration was very good.

Human trafficking in a quiet village?

DS Hart is investigating the death of a man found beaten when she is put on a different case...possible modern day slavery. One of the suspects makes an offhand comment that leads Karen to believe that the accident that killed her husband and daughter was not an accident! The more that Karen investigates, the more it looks as if there was a cover up and possible police corruption. Great story with lots of angst generated by a DI from Morgan’s former assignment. Looking forward to the next book.

An okey listen

It was okey. The narrator seemed to have some difficulties switching between some of the man voices and "Hart's" voice.

Complex Police Procedural

A man is found bludgeoned to death in a forest, and a group of undocumented workers are found hidden in a garage. At first the cases seem unrelated are and treated as such, but DS Karen Hart has her own suspicions.

This is a complex police procedural involving people smuggling and police corruption and is told from an investigative point of view making me feel like I was one of the team trying to figure out what was going on. There were plenty of twists which kept me on my toes. We also learned more about the accident that killed Karen's husband and child.

Fault with audio!

There is a fault with the sound, even if I turned the volume up or down, I couldn't hear anything. All of the other books in my library work perfectly.

Absolutely brilliant.

Please don’t let this be the last in the series. This this third book of the three I have read was terrific. The characters came alive. I must also say Henrietta Meier was the narrator and is brilliant telling the story. There is so much more that can be told and I’m sure D S Butler can give us another three to enjoy.

Another great book in this detective series.... hoping there is another one

Starting to really love the characters in this series, great twists and turns to the stories. Great building of the characters that you love to hate. Really love listening to a book about my home town.
Can’t wait to listen to the next book in the series.
Ignore the bad reviews about the narrator, no, she is not perfect with her pronunciation of some local places but overall she has a nice voice to listen to and I wouldn’t want to listen to someone else narrate the book.
