Publisher's Summary

Severed body parts. A woman in shadows. These are the only clues. Someone has left a severed hand in the centre of Manchester, and the only clue Detective Sergeant Jessica Daniel has to go on is CCTV footage of a woman in a long, black robe placing it carefully on the ground.

With a lengthy missing persons list and frantic families wondering if the body part could belong to their absent loved ones, she has plenty to deal with - and that's before a detached finger arrives for her in the post.

By the time a second hand is found and a local MP's wife goes missing, Jessica is left struggling to find out who the appendages belong to, how they are connected, and just what the mysterious woman in black has to do with it all.

    "Another great one in the series!"
    Any additional comments?

    This was another great listen in the series of DC Jessica Daniel crime novels. Held my attention throughout and really well paced.

    Story
    "Good characters, well delivered by the narrator"

    I'm getting addicted to the series and whilst there are a few things that don't ring true - surely Jessica wouldn't get away with being a maverick on every case - the characters make up for it.
    The narrator delivers the story well in exactly the right accent and tone.

    I am not a literary academic but just love clever complicated gritty mysteries with strong characters. Such as Hayder ,Robotham & Jussi

    "Could not finish"

    No matter how much I tried, I couldn't get into it. Written like a school child's essay, it drove me nuts and I had to concede with six hours listening time yo go!

    "Another good read"

    I listened to the first Jessica Daniels novel and I was hooked. Didn't think this one was quite as good as first ones but really enjoyed it
