Publisher's Summary

You never forget your first case....

Police Constable Jane Bennett is back on the beat after a spell away from the force. Working with the Serious Case Team, she's witnessed some of the worst crimes and endured them all. With her eye on promotion, Jane attends each call-out without complaint, determined to show her superiors her dedication. However, nothing could prepare her for this next case.

Behind the ordinary façade of someone's home, she discovers a truly chilling scene. While her male colleagues flake beside her, Jane shows she is made of sterner stuff and manages to impress DI Lockyer. It is an incident that will change both of their careers, as an indomitable partnership is formed.

Bad Purchase

I bought this not realizing it was a 40 minute novella and to make matters worse it's the worst reading by Imogen Church I've ever heard. That was the truly disappointing part. Imogen is my absolute favorite narrator and in this she sounded nothing like the others I've listened to. On the upside this was a credit purchase from my free trial so I'm not out any money but I wish I could get my credit back.

Winded - as wind as in " WIND your watch"

Not WIND as in "the AWIND blew fiercely today" re: sentence in this novellette. I have yet to hear ONE narrator follow the wind / wind distinction correctly, all other narration top-notch as is the writing (of course).

Don't waste a credit on this one

Didn't realise it was just a short story. I was just getting going and it ended by surprise.

Always read the label!

Total rip!

Downloaded this because I believed it to be the next book in the series...It's not, It's only an hour long but still takes a full credit. Can't even describe it as a short story - it's a pointless exercise. Left me feeling dumb for the assumption and cheated out of a read. Has put me off buying anymore from this series.
