The most corrupt judge in US history. A young investigator with a secret informant. The electrifying new thriller. Lacy Stoltz never expected to be in the firing line. Investigating judicial misconduct by Florida's 1,000 judges, her cases so far have been relatively unexciting. That's until she meets Greg Myers, an indicted lawyer with an assumed name who has an extraordinary tale to tell. Myers is representing a whistle-blower who knows of a judge involved in organised crime.

This book was spoilt by the narrator who had an irritating voice with false accent. This is one book to be read not listened.

A mother and child are found brutally murdered in an old caravan on a remote piece of land. A bloody footprint is discovered at the scene, and Chief Inspector Sejer is called to investigate. Meanwhile another mother, dying of cancer, confesses to her 21-year-old son that he is adopted. The man who abandoned them, whom the boy has become obsessed with, is not his real father. Why do we lie to those closest to us?

I have read all Karin Fossum books but this will be the last, the only good thing about this book was the narrator. he made a poor story worth listening to until the end. It was predictable all the way through with uninteresting characters. Very disappointed.
