Publisher's Summary

The fourth unputdownable book in the DS Mark Heckenburg series. A killer thriller for fans of Stuart MacBride and Luther, from the #1 ebook best seller Paul Finch.

His worst nightmare is back...As a brutal winter takes hold of the Lake District, a prolific serial killer stalks the fells. 'The Stranger' has returned and for DS Mark 'Heck' Heckenburg, the signs are all too familiar.

Last seen on Dartmoor ten years earlier, The Stranger murdered his victims in vicious, cold-blooded attacks - and when two young women go missing, Heck fears the worst.

As The Stranger lays siege to a remote community, Heck watches helplessly as the killer plays his cruel game, picking off his victims one by one. And with no way to get word out of the valley, Heck must play ball...

A spine-chilling thriller, from the #1 ebook best seller. Perfect for fans of Stuart MacBride and James Oswald.

    "Poor"

    A good narrator who did very well with such a poor story to work with. I applaud him for it.

    Story
    "Ever more fantastical"
    Would you try another book written by Paul Finch or narrated by Paul Thornley?

    Probably but each book gets more unbelievable
    It's a good job the baddies can't shoot straight


    What do you think the narrator could have done better?

    No. Very good

    Story
    "Excellent"
    Would you listen to Dead Man Walking again? Why?

    I would listen to this again. It was immensely enjoyable. The descriptions made it easy to "see" the scenes. The plot was well thought out and I loved the twist in the tale.


    What did you like best about this story?

    I liked the characters. They really came to life.


    What about Paul Thornley’s performance did you like?

    His change of accents for different characters was great. His reading gave atmosphere and improved the book.


    Any additional comments?

    A great book and worth every cent.

    "Absolutely brilliant"
    What made the experience of listening to Dead Man Walking the most enjoyable?

    From start to to finish it's exciting and stomach churning, what a story.
    Very very well written and narrated
    It is gripping and keeps you listening, it twists and turns through out, you can't second guess as to what is coming next.
    The best audio book I have ever listened to.

    "Gripping"

    Although I guessed the identity of "The Stranger" halfway through the story, I loved every minute of this audiobook. At times eerie, at other times chilling and suspenseful, it had everything. I found myself holding my breath on more than one occasion. Try it, you will not regret it.
