Summary

Following an argument with her British boyfriend, Chinese student Min Li is abducted whilst walking the dark streets of picturesque Stratford-upon-Avon alone. Trapped in a dark pit, Min is at the mercy of her captor.

Detective Inspector Will Jackman is tasked with solving the case and in his search for answers discovers that the truth is buried deeper than he ever expected. But, as another student vanishes and Min grows ever weaker, time is running out.

"Sharp writing and extremely authentic - a very engaging read." (Mel Sherratt, author of the DS Allie Shenton Series)
"An involving and clever plot; a sympathetic protagonist. In a crowded field, Jane Isaac writes like a seasoned professional." (Mick Herron, CWA Goldsboro Gold Dagger Award Winner)

Worth it in the end, Just!

Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?

This was my first Jane Isaac's and I have to admit it was a little hard to get into. but the story got better as it went along and in the end I like it.

Did the narration match the pace of the story?

No, I think this contributed to me taking so long to get into the story. The narrator, particularly Cathy Sabberton I found to be a bit tiresome

Did you have an emotional reaction to this book? Did it make you laugh or cry?

Yes but I am afraid my emptions were a little on the negative side. I found the author's prose a little too stunted and missing depth. If anything I thought there was not enough there to allow the reader to create a picture in their head.
