Publisher's Summary

The brand-new crime novel from Katerina Diamond.

Can you keep a secret? Your life depends on it....

Bridget Reid has a secret - one that could get her killed...if she can escape the man who is keeping her locked in a basement bedroom.

DS Imogen Grey is good at keeping secrets - truths she'd never reveal to her colleagues at Exeter Police. She worked hard to get where she is. She nearly died for it. Now her past is catching up with her.

As DS Grey and her partner, DS Adrian Miles, search for Bridget, they uncover a terrifying web of abuse, betrayal and murder. And they realise that some secrets are better left buried.

    Story
    "so far, perry awful...."
    What could have made this a 4 or 5-star listening experience for you?

    a better plot with a lot more thought about what might actually happen in the real world/ a little more thought around motivation and credibility


    What was most disappointing about Katerina Diamond’s story?

    immediately recognisable as just another very dull pot boiler/use of casual brutality to assault the reader/ a kind of frankenstein monster approach stitching together whatever comes to hand to create a crude approximation to a thriller.


    What do you think the narrator could have done better?

    The narrator did what could be done with the material


    You didn’t love this book--but did it have any redeeming qualities?

    not really


    Any additional comments?

    stock stuff and totally forgettable

    "another cliff hanger"

    yet again another brilliant story and with how it finishes I am waiting with bated breath for another installment.
    great plots, great narration, great characters.

    "much better than before"

    a much better story than the first one and much less confusing, especially with all those flashbacks.

    "Keep going"

    It took a little while to get into the book and then when I was enthralled the ending arrived and completely threw me! It ended too soon in my opinion!

    A fantastic follow on from the first book' The Teacher '( my favourite book ever ) gritty, gory, well written and narrated. Can't wait for the next instalment.

    Story
    "Visceral and gritty"

    If you are tired of cosy mysteries and cliché police procedurals then this is your fine single malt whiskey.
    Violent and strikingly visual in its descriptions, a strong heroine and no cardboards cut outs.
    Different from the first book, 'The Teacher', and much more gripping, leaving its predecessor in the dust.
    I read on audiobook and the reader was very good, bringing the characters to life. Sequel, anyone?
