When the skeleton of a young woman is found near a West Midlands motorway, evidence suggests that it is that of teenager Molly James, who went missing five years ago. Forensic psychologist Dr Kate Hanson and the Unsolved Crime Unit are called in to re-investigate Molly's case. The deeper they dig the dirtier the clues get, and when a second set of remains is unearthed Kate suspects they're looking for a Repeater: a killer who will adapt, grow and not stop until they are caught. Will Dr Hanson manage to unravel the tangle of clues that the killer has left behind before he has a chance to take another innocent victim?

A dull & badly written novel combined with execrable narration meant I did not get beyond the third chapter.
The plot is drab and uninteresting and the narration a disgrace.
I shall be asking for my money back
I love Tudor history, forensic science, murder mysteries. Occasionally I head off after Shackleton, Stonehenge or other eclectic subjects
I'm only on Chapter 5 of the book so can't comment on the story as yet. However, I am already frustrated beyond belief by the narrator's way of reading. She pauses, constantly, in the most inappropriate places. For example, Mom chatting to pre-teen daughter "we need to ....... agree on ground rules and...... stick to......them". No-one talks like that. Ever. Then we have the players at a crime scene: "she watched as........the pathologist carefully......worked away the soil around......the bones". I find myself waiting for, and reacting to, the next inappropriate pause instead of just listening to the story. It detracts totally from the atmosphere she's supposed to be creating. I will persevere and give the author a chance but I won't be......buying anything by...... this..... narrator....ever again
I found it extremely difficult to listen to this, the narration is poor, the Birmingham accent dire and as for the American accent, well I gave up at that point !!
