Publisher's Summary

DCI Kenny Murrain sees, hears and feels things that others do not. It’s a gift but also a curse. 

When he wakes to the phantom sound of screaming, he knows a murder has been committed, but not where or why. Then a woman’s body is found in a Stockport hotel room. It’s a murder that seems both frenzied and carefully planned, the scene expertly cleansed of any evidence. 

Over the following days, more bodies are discovered. The same frenzied attacks, the same meticulous planning. The same killer. The victims all have links to one man, a police colleague with a dark past. But Murrain discovers a more unexpected connection - with Marie Donovan, a former undercover officer now part of Murrain’s own team.

Boring book and bad narration..



Not real sure why I kept reading this. It never occurred to me to give up BUT it was really quite boring. I guess I just wanted to know who the murderer was. There’s a murder and Murrain and Milton go to see everything then go back to the office and talk about it and look into that person’s life then there's another murder and they’d go again and see it and go back to the office and talk about it and look into the person’s life then do it again. I mean, that’s really all there was to this. Even the ending was anticlimactic and flat, just like the story itself. I doubt I’ll be reading this author again.

No romance and the F-bomb was used 50 times.

As to the narration: Greg Wagland is not a good narrator. His women sound like men and he doesn’t have a bit of emotions when he reads. BUT he was perfectly boring narrator for this perfectly boring book.

Worth a listen

A different kind of crime thriller with a twist. I can see myself wanting to know what all the characters get up to in the next book so I will have to download it!
