When 29-year-old Cynthia Galbraith struggles to come to terms with her traumatic past and the realities of prison life, a prison counsellor persuades her to write a personal journal exploring the events that led to a life sentence for murder. Although unconvinced at first, Cynthia finally decides she has all the time in the world and very little, if anything, to lose. She begins writing and holds back nothing: sharing the thoughts she hadn't dared vocalize, the things that keep her awake at night and haunt her waking hours.

When Evil Calls Your Name is another cleverly written book by John Nicholl. This is not a stand alone story; you must read White Is The Coldest Colour to fully appreciate this book. It answered a lot of questions I had after reading the first book.

Cynthia was once a fiesty, young woman with a great future to look forward to. But everything comes crashing around her when she loses the love of her life. Distraught, vulnerable and unaware that evil has locked eyes on her, she is soon to learn that her life will never be the same again.

Two ex police officers turned private investigators are called upon to delve into the disappearance of Will Endersbe's wife. Has she been abducted? Killed? They set off and find themselves submerged in the actions of a barbaric individual.

This is a well paced investigatory story, the first of the series. I enjoyed getting to know the main characters(the partnership between Ellen and Brian, and the flawed relationship that Ellen and her brother,Jim, have with their mum). I will definitely look forward to seeing how the characters develop further during the series.

Emma didn't know how long he hid, silent and unmoving, in the large Victorian wardrobe to the side of her single bed. She didn't know how long he peered out, salivating and drooling, between the two heavy dark oak doors, and watched, mesmerized, as she slowly drifted into fitful sleep. She didn't know what time he pushed the doors open and crept towards her in the drab grey darkness of the night.

...wow! I absolutely loved Portraits of the Dead. It's a terrifying and chilling story that is read brilliantly by Jake Urry. The storyline, detail and characters are extremely well written from start to finish; I found myself trying to warn the DS in parts.

This was the first time that I have read anything by John Nicholl and it's definitely not going to be the last. If I could give the book more than 5 stars I would. A book that I will be recommending to everyone to read and listen to.
