Publisher's Summary

When Carmel Hennessy begins a new job in North Yorkshire, she finds the historic city of Eborby gripped by fear. A killer is on the prowl who binds and asphyxiates his victims before leaving their naked bodies in isolated country churchyards.

The press are calling him the Resurrection Man. Tragic events from the past link Carmel with DI Joe Plantagenet, who believes the case may have occult connections. Then Carmel becomes aware of a malevolent presence in her flat and, when she starts to receive mysterious threats, it is Joe she turns to first, And that is when Joe is forced to get into the mind of a cunning - and scarily ruthless - killer.

Struggled to finish

I struggled to finish this book. I nearly gave up numerous times but persevered. The story was good but didn't grip me from the start it kind of ambled on.

Seeking The Dead.

Loved it. Our introduction to Joe. I'm sure there will be more mysteries for him to solve.
Story kept me guessing right to the end.
Well narrated. Highly recommended.

DULL

Found the narrator very dull to listen to and the plot was like wading through treacle listened to three chapters and gave it up as a bad job

Brilliant as always

Kate Ellis has long been one of my favourite authors. This book does not disappoint. The story lines are developed gradually until a tense conclusion and she leaves the reader guessing whodunit right to the last pages. And even then, unless your name is Sherlock, you'll be wrong!
