Publisher's Summary

The best-selling author of With Our Blessing and Beneath the Surface.

The inspector frowned and examined the earth under the trees. As he scanned the glade, his stomach lurched. One, two, three, four. Five, counting the mound of earth disturbed under the tent. Somebody had cleared the earth of its natural layer and sown their own flowers.

In five places. Five graves. A young woman, Fiona Holland, has gone missing from a small Irish village. A search is mounted, but there are whispers. Fiona had a wild reputation. Was she abducted, or has she run away? A week later a gruesome discovery is made in the woods at Ireland's most scenic beauty spot - the valley of Glendalough.

The bodies are all young women who disappeared in recent years. DI Tom Reynolds and his team are faced with the toughest case of their careers - a serial killer who hunts vulnerable women and holds his victims captive before he ends their lives. Soon the race is on to find Fiona Holland before it's too late.

a good story

I loved the story, very intense in places. I found it hard to put down. Im eager to read the next one. I love the narrator and her accents but the tone of her voice makes her a great story teller.

Brilliantly read

Aoife McMahon is a brilliant narrator. She managed to bring out each of the characters idiosyncrasies. I will get a book just because she is narrating. A good thrilling story too.

Continues the tradition of With Our Blessing

Another riveting story from Jo Spain, with the wonderful Tom Reynolds. This one explores the mind of a serial killer. Fascinating, and disturbing. The narration by Aoife McMahon is brilliant.

Compelling crime story

Thoroughly enjoyed this book by Jo Spain. Had read the other books in the series but somehow missed this one so it filled in some of the gaps . Love Tom’s character, a caring, intelligent & clever police officer with a soft personal side.

Brilliant Book

Wow! The story was so well written with a huge amount of intrigue and suspense. I am thoroughly enjoying seeing the regular characters stories evolve. And the narrator is just the best that I have experienced! Excellent book!

Absolutely brilliant

The plot, twists and characters in this book kept my interest to the very end. And I didn’t want the audio book to end.
