Publisher's Summary

When human remains are discovered under Bradford’s derelict Odeon car park, DS Nikita Parekh and her team are immediately called to the scene.

Distracted by keeping her young nephew out of trouble, Nikki is relieved when the investigation is transferred to the Cold Case Unit, and she can finally focus on her family.

But after the identity of the victim is revealed, she’s soon drawn back into the case. The dead man is a direct link to her painful past.

As the body count begins to rise, Nikki must do everything she can to stop the killer in their tracks before anyone else gets hurt – even if it means digging up secrets she had long kept hidden.

Story ok but worst Scottish accent ever

I’ve enjoyed previous Liz Mistry books and this new series was okay but was spoiled by the worst Scottish accent ever (I’ve heard a few!) just hope it will be a different narrator

Enjoyable

A British police procedural involving the dynamics of the inner city, racial disparities and socioeconomics. Good narration.

Excellent start to a new series

Gus McGuire is a hard act to follow, but Liz Mistry has done it again with her new detective DS Nikita Parekh. I read an ARC of this book a few months ago and loved it so much that when the Audible version was released I couldn't resist. This book (hopefully the first in a new series) is once again set in Bradford and even though I do know the city, Ms Mistry describes it so well that even if you’ve never been there you feel like you know it. Our protagonist is a complex character, who just jumps off the page. She’s a strong, no-nonsense single mother, with a chaotic family life, but often rubs people up the wrong way. She’s not totally likeable, but she did grow on me as the story progressed. The supporting characters were all well written and believable. I liked the relationship Nikki had with her partner, Sajid. The well plotted story builds slowly, with the first twist coming fairly early, and it kept me guessing throughout. I thought I’d figured out who the killer was but I was totally wrong! Hopefully we’ll be meeting Nikki Parekh again very soon! The narration bt Shaheen Khan was brilliant, adding another layer of authenticity to the story.

Poor for Liz Mistry

Her last trilogy of books were brilliant so my expectations were high for this one. Got board early on but persevered until half way and gave up. Sorry but nowhere near as good as the previous 3.
