When a body is found stuffed into a barrel at a garbage dump, covered in long red lacerations, Detective Jenna Alton and her new deputy, David Kane, rush to the scene. Nothing ever happens in the small American town of Black Rock Falls, so Jenna believes the victim must be one of two recent missing persons, and she fears for the life of the other. Both were strangers to the town, but there's nothing else to link them. Jenna knows someone must have seen something, but no one's talking.

The main female character was so pathetic she wouldn't be able to hold a job down in a sweet shop. This story was very predictable and about 8 hrs too long. Don't waste your time with it.

The story was spoilt by the terrible narration. It was airy fairy and lacked conviction. Please ensure that the narrators have a basic grasp of the English language, I found her constant misuse of wandering so irritating I wanted to throw my phone across the room!!! I wandered if he was going to ring me, no, I wondered if he was going to ring me but probably not, as he too may find her irritating.
