A vicious serial killer is holding the country to ransom, publicly - and gruesomely - murdering his victims. When a man is burnt alive on a bonfire, it seems like a tragic Guy Fawkes Night accident. But with the discovery of a young couple on Valentine's Day - each with an arrow through the heart - something more sinister becomes clear. A "calendar killer" is on the loose.
Detective Mark "Heck" Heckenburg is up against it. With a rising body count and the public's eyes on him, Heck must find the killer before he executes more victims. Because this killer has a plan. And nothing will stop him completing it.
A heart-stopping and grisly thriller that will enthral fans of Stuart MacBride and Katia Lief.

Anything action packed! My fav narrator, has to be Paul Thornley, awesome!.. Fav series Roy Grace & Dan Shepherd 10/10
Believable, narration as always made this book again - Paul Thornley
The number of characters, how it switched and of course Heck is a really mans man
He is by far the best Narrator out their! got to a point now however where I wont listen to anyone else.... Not sure if that's good or a bad thing?
Would love to just physically cant! I did however run back to it! :)
Paul Thornley You are the best, the author is not bad too! :)
It's the second one by this author in this series I listened to and it will be the last one not because it isn't great because I think the story get get a little bit the same like watching episodes of top gear.
A modest genius & all round good bloke!
Once again Heck is knee deep in bodies and the very worst kind of criminal deviants. A simmering love interest taunts the reader. Paul Thornley brings this tale to life in his inimitable style making it a can't put down tale. My immediate instinct was to load the next in the series but that would be wrong like fine wine this stuff is to be cherished and reserved for when you have time to enjoy it.
Chilling but intriguing
Very hard to pin point a memorable moment as all of the book was brilliant
Ok now breath
Paul Finch is my favourite , been a long time since I could say this.
This book would have been way better if the author hadn't felt it necessary to treat his listeners like fools. For example , after describing someone like a deep pool it really is unnecessary to go in and explain what that means. This type of thing happens throughout the book. The author also overused the word 'again' throughout the book. This is the second that I've listened to in the series and I won't be listening to any more.
The author tells his story by getting his characters to lecture on all manner of things such as police procedures, matters of love and life to the great detriment of the story line. The book suffers from far too many details nothing to do with what is happening, in language which is too simple to be enjoyable.
Stagnant, boring and characters which I just do not enjoy listening to...
