Two years later in Iraq, the consequences of her second attempt to expose him are devastating. Terrified, degraded, and destroyed, she goes into hiding in England and tries to rebuild the person she was before being subjected to three days of conditioning in a Baghdad cellar.
In the process, she strikes up a friendship with Jess Derbyshire, a loner whose reclusive nature has alienated her from the rest of the Dorset community where she lives. Seeing parallels between herself and Jess, Connie borrows from the other woman's strength and makes the hazardous decision to attempt a third unmasking of a serial killer...knowing he will come looking for her.

Saskia Wickham is a fantastic narrator, using just the right pitch and expression. Minette Walters never fails to impress me .
