When Billy, a troubled young man, comes to private eye Cormoran Strike's office to ask for his help investigating a crime he thinks he witnessed as a child, Strike is left deeply unsettled.

But before Strike can question him further, Billy bolts from his office in a panic.

She always went to far. DS Alexandra Cupidi has done it again. She should have learnt to keep her big mouth shut after the scandal that sent her packing - resentful teenager in tow - from the London Met to the lonely Kent coastline. Murder is different here, among the fens and stark beaches. She was the one who found the killers. The man drowned in the slurry pit had been herded there like an animal. He was North African, like many of the fruit pickers that work the fields. The more Cupidi discovers, the more she wants to ask - but these people are suspicious of questions.

Gripping and atmospheric thriller, brooding and perfectly capturing the atmosphere of the Fens. The story line twists and turns deftly , and the denouement does not disappoint. The reader has a fascinating range of accents and timbre of voice to cover all the different characters mala and female. Very entertaining listen
