Publisher's Summary

An absolutely gripping thriller with pause-resisting suspense

Lucy watches the doctor leave, then turns to the nameless victim on the table. "I promise I will catch whoever did this to you," she whispers.

In charge of a new team, Detective Lucy Harwin is called out to attend the discovery of a woman’s body in an abandoned, crumbling church and is quickly plunged into a case that will test her leadership skills to the limit.

With no leads except the crudely-fashioned crucifix the victim was displayed on, Lucy is at a complete loss. That is, until another body turns up: an elderly woman who devoted her life to the church.

Faced with a killer stalking the streets of her small coastal town, while also throwing herself into work to forget the love of her life, Lucy’s first case is turning into a nightmare.

Linking the killer to the church where her own teenage daughter volunteers, it seems the threat is quickly drawing closer to Lucy and those she loves. Can she catch this monster and prevent a tragedy that will tear her world apart?

An addictive and pause-resisting crime thriller that will hook fans of Patricia Gibney, LJ Ross, and Angela Marsons from the very first minute.

Almost a Prequel Without a Cause

It took me about 3/4 of the way through this novel to realize how this novel could work as a prequel. When writing a prequel, it should serve a purpose to inform the previous novels. Well it does, like I say, serve this purpose close to the end, there are at least four major events over the course of this novel that would’ve informed the behavior and the references in the previous two novels but didn’t. It almost makes me wonder if this author thought up this prequel after-the-fact to answer some questions from the first novel. Strategic authors plan their novels ahead so that if something in the future needs to inform something in the past, they’ve incorporated information into the earlier novels.

Otherwise it’s a perfectly fine novel and I enjoyed it.

Order of Series is Numbered Incorrectly

While the storyline is amazing. I am disappointed with what was advertised and I purchased as Book 3 in the Detective Lucy Harwin series. When reading a series, I make it a point to look at the publishing date to ensure the order. As much as the layers of Lucy's character unfolded in book 1 & 2; I feel it equally digressed in Book 3.

Good book but it’s out of order!

This book is considered the first book in the series. The narrator literally says that at the end of the book! It’s good and you can still follow the storyline even if you listen to other books first, but just giving a heads up to anyone who wants to know.

Read this book first. It is not a prequel It is book 1.

The book was spoiled by Audible having listed this as book 3.

It isn't.

As soon as I started to listen to this book I realized there were problems. The age of her daughter. The period of time Lucy had been separated from her husband was suddenly 2 months instead of 2 years. Then 2 homicides noted in book "1" of characters who are suddenly alive. There are so many other things that would be spoilers.

What a shame.

Read all 3 but read this one first otherwise you will be seriously disappointed. They are all good.

Really important to read reviews even if it is just to find out if a book is being reissued under a different title or it is being reissued after many years and it doesn't pop up as a book you have bought before.

Or in this case listed in the wrong order.

Great book, but it’s the first in the series, not the third

I really enjoyed this book, but it was slightly spoiled by the fact that, somehow, audible has this as the third book in the series, NOT the third, so I essentially knew the ending from the very beginning since the second book in the series talked about it.

I hope audible fixes this issue soon.

Is this supposed to be book 1?

I think the author has these listed incorrectly. I loved them but feel at though they should’ve be ready in reverse order

Absolutely brilliant

Part of the DI Lucy Harwin series, another brilliant crime story from a fantastic author. The story line was absolutely gripping, so many twists and turns and very exciting. A brilliant listen indeed.

Tedious and formulaic story

I disliked the girly voice of the reader.
A very slight work with an entirely predictable plot. Unnecessarily gory. Dubious psychological portrayals of characters.
