Publisher's Summary

The last time DCI Jamie Carver involved a would-be victim in his hunt for a serial killer, it ended badly. Now they want him to do it again, only this time the 'victim' is a Dominatrix. 

As if he hasn't enough on his plate - a brutal killer poised to strike again; shadows of the past that still haunt his dreams; an investigation under mounting pressure to succeed; a beautiful woman whose bizzare lifestyle may be the key to finding the killer. And that's not counting the young girl whose life he's trying to save from ruin or the ambitious colleague scheming to bring him down. 

As the kill count mounts, signs point to a link with Carver's first serial killer case - that of the notorious Escort Killer, Edmund Hart. But Hart is dead, having hung himself in prison, so how can that be? 

This is just one of the mysteries Carver must solve in this gripping first outing for the detective who knows his reputation as the UK's foremost serial sex crime investigator is built on sand. And when the killer strikes at the heart of the investigation, he knows that in order to protect those closest, he must confront what he most fears - his own failings.

Not dire at all!

I can’t agree at all with the reviewer who describes this as ‘dire’! Fair enough, the narrator, who is not someone I’ve come across before and seems to a be relative newcomer on the audio book scene, may not be a PERFECT fit for a Northwest-based crime story, and a couple of his attempts at regional accents may not satisfy the purists, but I would say he does a very credible job of trying to inject ‘character’ into his portrayals, which not all narrators do and can’t be all that easy when some of the key characters are female. I found the story gripping, involving, full of twists and turns and it kept me hooked right through to the end. I do most of my listening at night, in bed, with the lights out. This is a dark crime story that gets darker and more and more suspenseful as it develops, (loved the Megan Crane character), and I had no problem losing myself in the narrator’s telling of it, ending up ‘bingeing’ on a four hour listening session just to learn how it all gets resolved, which it does, in a very satisfying way. I’ve already downloaded the next in the series, Final Breath, and early indications are I’ll end up doing the same again. No hesitation recommending this to those who don’t mind that the narrator is not Richard Burton or some other well-known established actor, and just want to lose themselves in a good crime mystery, well told..

Awful

Unbelievably dreadful , this is an insult to the intelligence , the narrator is so wooden and the narrative is so banal , and of course , it has the required foul language that most so called police procedural books have these days . A waste of money ,
