Publisher's Summary

Detective Ford has a cold-blooded killer to catch. But can he escape his own dark secrets?

Barely a month since his promotion to Inspector, DI Ford is called in to investigate the murder of a young nurse and her son in a small flat in Salisbury. There are few clues, and no apparent motive, but Ford can sense that there's a serial killer at work. After all, he knows from brutal personal experience how killers cover their tracks....

It's been six years since Ford lost his wife in a climbing accident - an accident he caused. He is desperate to keep the truth hidden, especially from his son, Sam. But Ford's new partner, Dr. Hannah Fellowes, is a crime scene investigator with a ruthlessly analytical mind, and as they work together to track down the killer, his crippling guilt is compounded by fear of exposure.

When instinct leads him towards a high-profile suspect, his superiors' warnings just make him more determined to connect impulse and fact. But can Ford hold it all together - the case, his life - long enough to stop the killer?

I was really looking forward to this one...

OMG! Narration is horrendous! Narrator Steve West does a good enough job with male voices, however, he should stay away from female and children voices! I wish he would just have read the book. Some narrators have the talent and others do not. The story itself started out okay, but the narration made it was over-the-top and I had to give up on this one.

I'm not normally one for reviews but...

I have read and/or listened to previous books by Andy and whilst they've always been enjoyable, this one had me gripped. Twists and turns, this way and that, the pace is fast enough to want to keep going but slow enough to allow you to understand the characters. The characters have good depth and background, and I can't wait to read the next instalment

couldn't put it down

Normally I get really into books then can't finish them as they get boring...this one was the opposite...couldn't leave it alone in the second half...a very easy enjoyable read (listen). It would have been nice to have some proper south west accents from the narrator but otherwise I loved it.
