Summary

Alice Quentin returns to tackle a series of murders in the Square Mile in the thrilling sequel to Crossbones Yard.

The first death looked like a suicide. But someone had tucked a picture of an angel and a handful of white feathers into the banker's pocket - before pushing him in front of a Tube. A killer is stalking the Square Mile, an avenging angel intent on punishment. But why these victims? What were their sins?

Psychologist Alice Quentin swore she'd never get involved with police work again. Her duty is to the living, not the dead. But she owes detective Don Burns a favour, and when he comes begging for help, how can she refuse?

In order to find the murderer, Alice and Don must dig deep into the toxic heart of the city. A place where money means more than life, and no one can be counted innocent.

I was never pulled into the story

Tried to listen, but I just couldn't get into it. I can't remember the last time I didn't finish a book, even one I didn't really care for. But this one just didn't do it for me.

Narrator wrong for the main character

I read the first book in the series and thought it was just okay, but I decided I would try the second. The narrator is very good with different accents but her own sophisticated, mature voice lacked emotion and is totally wrong for the main character who is a 5' petite blonde. It really disracted me from the story.

Too much happens to Alice

I couldn't buy the coincidences that thrust Alice into the center of everything once again. This is my last Kate Rhodes. Great narration, although it couldn't lessen my disappointment.

An excellent book

An excellent story written by an excellent writer. I am usually very good and guessing the plot early in the story but not with her. It's near the end. Second book of hers I am now going to look for others written by her
