Two days later he is found dead. Sixteen years on, Rose still blames herself for Billy's death. How could she have failed to protect her little brother?

When the body of a man is discovered in woodlands outside Manchester, a ten-year missing-persons investigation can finally be filed away. But this was no ordinary death: gagged, bound and buried alive, he was the victim of a sophisticated and sadistic killer. And there is something else that has the National Crime Agency puzzled. A single character carved into a nearby tree.

I loved the story but I did find the narrators voice a bit annoying with the "drawling".

I found the first book a easy listen,the second became more confusing but I really wanted to know the outcome of the third book so persisted. I found it really difficult to want to carry on and lost interest half way through and came to dislike a few characters,but I hate to leave a book unread so carried on.the ending to me was a bit " oh is that it?".
