Summary

Two massacred families, with signs of ritual killings. A nine-year-old-child, abandoned in the snow.

As Liverpool holds its breath, DCI Eve Clay hunts a sadistic killer who knows more about her past than she does. Her search will take her deep into the tunnels beneath Liverpool, boarded up and forgotten since World War II. There, deep underground, she will come face to face with true evil for the first time.

Critic reviews

"A genuinely innovative crime writer with a taste for the macabre and unexpected." (Daily Mail)
"A sprawling, gritty, violent, tribal crime epic with a deeply rooted sense of place and a gut-punch ending." (C. J. Box)
"Not only a fine debut, but a fine mystery novel, period. I can't wait to see what he comes up with next." (John Connolly)

Great serial killer story with brilliant narration

What about Emma Gregory’s performance did you like?

Great ability to translate many characters and wonderful performance

Any additional comments?

I really liked that although this was book one in the series, there was a back story with the core character. I didn't guess the twists and story. Loved this book.
