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.

at first most of the books I've read in the past were narrated by women so when I heard a man's voice I didn't think I'd be able to get into it but before I knew it I was on chapter 30 I couldn't wait to hear how it ended and I loved all the little twists and Turns I'm definitely glad I continued to listen past the man's voice haha
