Getting inside the mind of a killer isn't for the faint of heart....
A cold case and a series of drownings present forensic psychologist Alice Quentin with a terrifying mystery in an audiobook perfect for fans of Nicci French.
Jude Shelley, the daughter of a prominent cabinet minister, was assaulted and left for dead in the river Thames. Her attacker was never caught. A year later forensic psychologist Alice Quentin is asked to reexamine the case.
Then another body is found: an elderly priest, washed up at Westminster Pier. An ancient glass bead is tied to his wrist. Alice is certain that the Shelleys are hiding something - and that there will be more victims unless she can persuade them to share what they know.
The Thames has always been a site of violent sacrifice. And Alice is about to learn that some people still believe in its power.

I have just discovered this author and read all of the previous titles up to this one. I thoroughly enjoyed this story, but I just found Alice to be a little bit annoying in this book. Some of her escapades are a little far-fetched ( I won't say anymore as I don't want to spoil it for anyone else). I do really like these novel though and have pre- ordered the next in the series which is due for release in 2017.
The narrator does a super job with these stories ( same one throughout). Great range of characters and pitch - tone etc.
Thoroughly recommend. 👍
really great story, intriguing characters, am definitely planning to get more of the Alice Quentin series. interested to hear more about the relationship between Psychologist Alice & Detective Burns. A great combination of a thrilling, somewhat gruesome plot, with a dash of romance thrown in too. this story kept me enthralled right til the end. well narrated too.
