This book will have you listening to 'just one more chapter' after you plan to only read one.
The creative spin and the ways each character are depicted in the book, brings each to life and into yours.
gripping, horrific and surprising all provide a fantastic storyline. Patricia Gibney never fails to impress. Also, Michele Moran is the best female Irish narrator I've come across.
It's a 'Must Read'!!

Good storyline, awful narrator.

this had me glued! I went through every emotion and really felt for the characters. Perfectly narrated. Paterson gave the characters a real personality and neither sounded the same (unlike most readers). Beautifully written. I really cannot wait for the next book from Erin Kinsley!

After listening to all the other DI Kim stone books, it's great seeing how the and her 'oddball team come together.
Again Jan Cramer ruined parts of the story. over reacting etc. she's ok applying her voice to play Kim's part. but everyone else is terrible.

narrator is awful

This book has a great storyline which intrigued me enough to carry in to the end.
Purely due to the narrator, this book was completely ruined. Cramer could not perform any accent and constantly spoke with arrogance, cockiness and sarcasm.

i would have liked to have listened to more DI Prince story's but could not bear listening to that narrator.

Nowhere near as good as the DI Nikki Galena books. The build up towards ordering andthe advertisement didn't help as you can usually guarsntee a good book.
This isn't terrible by any means but storylines were blurred and all over the place. there was to much going on and there wasn't a good enough reason for the abduction. It didn't make sense until the very end and even that left me feeling perplexed, down and fed up I listened for so long only to come away frustrated.

of all the Fens books by Joy Ellis, this was my least favourite.
the storyline was confusing in parts, uninteresting and seemed to jump from place to place.
However, it did still harbour secrets and had a mystery to the crimes. If you have listened to / read the rest of the Fens books, I would still recommend even if its purely to follow each character on their journey and find out more about them.

there are so many abbreviations to try to remember which can be really frustrating when trying to focus on the actual importance and progression in the rest of the story
