Three very different women come together at isolated Baikie’s Cottage on the North Pennines to complete an environmental survey. Rachael, the team leader, is still reeling after a double betrayal by her lover and boss, Peter Kemp. Anne, a botanist, sees the survey as a chance to indulge in a little deception of her own. And then there is Grace, a strange, uncommunicative young woman hiding plenty of her own secrets.

Although I enjoyed listening to the crow trap. I found some bits of it dragged the storyline out. Not one of Ann Cleeves best. But still worth listening to

This book is an easy listen and easy to follow. The storyline flowed with Lucy as a likable character. Caroline Lennon told the story with feeLing for the characters in this book. I will listen to more of this author's books

'It's been 11 months since I sat in my teenage bedroom and my mundane life was cast into madness. I suppose you could argue it was a lot longer if you include the 30-year trip back to 1986.' After his miraculous weekend in 1986, Craig Pelling returned to a future he could never have envisaged. Even by his own hapless standards, his plans have spectacularly backfired. Does he face a bleak, lonely future, or does he try to seek answers? Either way, an emotional roller coaster beckons.

An imaginative captivating storyline

Overall
5 out of 5 stars

This is not the usual type of read or listening I go for. But I wanted some thing different. Although the story line was a bit slow at first I was soon entertained. Just by chance whilst scanning the Amazon read's I saw the blub and then read the reviews. Which I might add I always do about a book or an audio book then I make the decision to commit. If you're looking for something different to your normal style give this a go you won't be disappointed
