    Singmass Close has a sinister past. Reputedly haunted by the ghosts of children, in the 50s it was the hunting ground of the Doll Strangler, a ruthless killer who was never brought to justice. Now DI Joe Plantagenet wonders whether a copycat killer is at work when the strangled body of teenager Natalie Parkes is found in the same close, a mutilated doll lying by her side.

    A carefully crafted detective story.

    Kate Ellis writes well, with even story pacing building to a final solution. Joe Plantagenet is characterised with human frailties sufficient to make..Show More »

    Thirteen Torland Place was the scene of five terrible murders back in the 19th century, and was also linked to the more recent disappearance of two teenage girls. When a student living in the house is found murdered, DI Joe Plantagenet wonders whether her death has anything to do with the house's grim history. Then other, similar deaths come to light and he fears a ruthless killer is at work in the ancient Yorkshire city of Eborby; a killer who deprives each victim of one of their five senses.

    Good!

    An original, and well written story about a murder, which creates a lot of dilemmas, for those involved. Worth a listen.

    Taking a shortcut home beneath the ruined abbey in the centre of the city, a teenage girl reports stumbling across a body. She also claims to have seen a mysterious nun-like figure watching her from the shadows. But during the subsequent search, no body is found. The girl's inebriated state and her troubled history make the police sceptical, and only Detective Inspector Joe Plantagenet is inclined to believe her.

    Dire Dire Narrative

    I have read many Kate Ellis books and find them all a great read. I got this as an audiobook with Gordon Griffin reading. I really enjoyed this story ..Show More »
