Publisher's Summary

In this thriller from the bestselling DI Nick Dixon crime series, a brutal murder looks like a gangland execution...until the next body is found.

Newly promoted DCI Nick Dixon is stuck behind a desk when the peace of the Somerset countryside is shattered by a spate of sheep killings. Dixon recognises a sinister pattern: the animals have all been slaughtered with a crossbow, the power increasing with each kill. It seems whoever is responsible is practising, but for what?

Then the owner of a yacht that capsized on a suspected drug run is found dead, pinned to a tree by four crossbow bolts. Convinced that the killing is a gangland execution, the organised crime unit take over the investigation.

Dixon is sure the motive lies elsewhere, but is forced to watch from the sidelines - until another body is found.

Leading a major investigation team at Avon and Somerset Police headquarters, and with internal politics threatening to thwart him at every turn, Dixon must find the murderer before he kills again. And again…

Not bad

I enjoyed this mostly because I love the narrator Simon Mattacks who has a terrific voice. Damien Boyd is an ok writer. Not brilliant.

Another satisfying listen

This was a very complicated story and because it was quite long I had almost forgotten the start of the book when I came towards the end, so did not tie the incidents together at all.
The narration was excellent and added to the enjoyment.
Well worth listening to.

Great story with good narration

I thoroughly enjoyed the story and the narration. I wish audible would recast the earlier books using the voice of Simon Mattacks. I'm adamant I won't get any of the Nick Dixon books read by the previous narrator as the samples and the reviews make its clear they are difficult to listen to.

Twists and Turns

Another brilliant story by Damien Boyd. Can't wait for the next one.
Once again he takes you on a rollercoaster of a ride with Dixon and co. Just as you think you have it all figured out and near the end, Dixon is still questioning the motives.

Outstanding!

This was a great book!! It contained all the ingredients to keep me absorbed day and night!
Hopefully Damien is already working on the next edition.
