Publisher's Summary

Josie works until her arms ache, until the paramedics arrive and pull her gently away from the woman’s cold, fragile body. Noah’s voice cracks beside her as he calls the time of death for his own beloved mother. 

Arriving with her partner Noah for dinner at his family’s immaculate countryside home, Detective Josie Quinn is devastated to find Noah’s mother, Colette, lying lifeless in the back garden, her mouth clogged with soil.

Searching the house for answers, Josie’s team don’t know what to make of the rosary beads buried in the dirt near the body or the hidden file labelled “Drew Pratt”, the small town of Denton’s most famous missing person.

As she delves deeper into Pratt’s case, Josie quickly discovers he had a brother whose body mysteriously washed up on the banks of a river. There’s also a diary entry suggesting that Colette may have met him on the last day he was seen alive. Can Josie believe the unthinkable, that a kind old soul like Colette might have been involved in their murders? And will Josie’s new relationship with Noah survive the accusation?

Josie’s only hope lies in tracking down Pratt’s daughter. But when she arrives at her home to find she’s been murdered just minutes before, Josie knows the real killer is one step ahead and won’t stop until Colette’s secret is buried forever. With many more innocent lives on the line, how deep is Josie prepared dig to reach the truth?

An absolutely gripping crime thriller that will have you up all night! If you love Angela Marsons, Robert Dugoni, or Rachel Caine you’re guaranteed to be hooked from the very first moment.

Narration

Way too many mispronounced words! Obviously the performance is not reviewed or edited before going into post production. Takes away from overall enjoyment.

Another hard to put down book!

Just when you think that this author can’t outdo herself...she produces yet another excellent book and proves you wrong! This book finds Josie in the midst of solving the murder of the mother of her boyfriend, and fellow detective, Noah Freely. What information did Noah’s mother have that would cause her death? While Josie works on this case, she is dealing with Noah pulling away from her...and his sister’s obvious dislike of her. As the bodies pile up, Josie and her team work tirelessly to find this killer.
Looking forward to the next book!!

STORY SO CAPTIVATING!!!

Lisa Regan is a master at suspense. This is one of the best series around. I listened to all five books without a break! It's just one BIG story from start to finish. It was truly hard for me to stop listening. I highly recommend this series for those who love suspense/thrillers! I can't wait for a new release. Although I didn't mind Kate Handford's narration, there are others that would bring the story to life a little better for me. I prefer narrators that have multiple voices in their repertoire. Thus, there's never a doubt who is speaking. Kate Handford will eventually have that but not at present time.

Great story

Another great story by Lisa Regan. As always Lisa keeps the reader at the edge of their seat with all the twist and turns. My only issue is the audio portion had so many mis pronunciations. It was clear the person preforming was not comfortable with American English.

Yay! Good narrator!

Really liked the Josie Quinn character and series, couldn’t STAND the original narrator. I switched to reading the series instead of listening. So glad I can listen now. Narrators can make such a difference and they have a good one, now.

great crime thriller

Lisa Regan writes a good story of murder, greed entwined with apparently loyal but controlled people. Good people murdered for no apparent reason. A great page turner if I was reading it instead of listening to it while walking the dogs.

Disappointing American fiction

I don't like American crime on TVs but thought the book would be different. It wasn't! It was too long and drawn out too many characters that had no relevance to the story. I go
It very bored with it,

Further development

The story keeps growing. The development of the characters is a constant throughout the series. The story is of the same standard of the rest, twists and turns. As with the others the whole is only let down by the immaturity of the characters in emotional situations. But the relationship of Josies developing family is a very engrossing and keeps you invested.
