Twenty-eight years ago, Charlotte and Samantha Quinn's happy small-town family life was torn apart by a terrifying attack on their family home. It left their mother dead. It left their father - Pikeville's notorious defence attorney - devastated. And it left the family fractured beyond repair, consumed by secrets from that terrible night. Twenty-eight years later, Charlie has followed in her father's footsteps to become a lawyer herself - the archetypal good daughter.

As you would expect from Karin Slaughter, superb! She never fails to deliver, a class act.

Five figures gather 'round a shallow grave. They had all taken turns to dig. An adult-sized hole would have taken longer. An innocent life had been taken, but the pact had been made. Their secrets would be buried, bound in blood. Years later a headmistress is found brutally strangled, the first in a spate of gruesome murders that shock the Black Country.

A good story, intricate plot, but ruined by poor narration! Will listen to more by this author but not told by this narrator.

I'm a Karen Slaughter fan, and this did not disappoint me! Held my attention from beginning to end. The narrator was good and I wouldn't think twice about listening to another book read by her. I listen to a lot of audiobooks and this one was one of the best for a long time.

Thirty nine steps rose from the busy road of Tuborgvej into Mindelunden, with its quiet graves and abiding bitter memories. Lennart Brix, head of the Copenhagen homicide team, felt he’d been walking those most of his life. Beneath the entrance arch, sheltering from the icy rain, he couldn’t help but recall that first visit almost fifty years before. A five-year-old boy, clutching the hand of his father, barely able to imagine what he was about see…

I watched the TV programme in Danish in Denmark where my son lives and have to say this was brilliant! It was true to the Danish, whilst written in the style that David Hewson does so well. I'm a Hewson fan, so if you like his Italian based novels you will love this! So many twists and turns it kept you guessing right up to the last chapter, and was just as good as The Killing 1. The narration is also excellent, I kept on saying one more chapter, one more chapter, but couldn't switch it off!
