Slightly annoying narration, being from Northumberland myself I found the accent odd!! Easy enough to listen to although at times my mind wondered off

When the body of a man is discovered in woodlands outside Manchester, a ten-year missing-persons investigation can finally be filed away. But this was no ordinary death: gagged, bound and buried alive, he was the victim of a sophisticated and sadistic killer. And there is something else that has the National Crime Agency puzzled. A single character carved into a nearby tree.

I've listened to books by this author before and have really enjoyed them. This has the makings of a great story but never quite gets going properly, partly due to the incredibly annoying narrator. I struggled to finish it.

I was really looking forward to listening to this book as I have read all the others by this author. The story was great but I struggled to finish it as the narrator was terrible. Dreadful accents which really spoiled the story for me.

This was more like a mills & boon than a crime thriller. The story didn't really go anywhere and it turned into a love story. I found it very boring and tiresome

The compelling new standalone novel from the Sunday Times number-one best-selling author of Unseen and Cop Town. With a missing girl in the news, Claire Scott can’t help but be reminded of her sister, who disappeared 20 years ago in a mystery that was never solved. But when Claire begins to learn the truth about her sister, nothing will ever be the same.
