Summary

The new novel in the best-selling, critically acclaimed Hull-based DS McAvoy crime series.  

It's the coldest winter in Hull for years.   

When McAvoy is told by a concerned stranger that an elderly woman hasn't been seen for a few days, he goes to check on her - only to find her in the bath, encased in ice: the heating off, the windows open, the whole house frozen over.   

It could be a macabre accident, but when McAvoy finds a series of cryptic messages, he senses murder. Someone watched her die.   

As he starts to uncover the victim's story and her connections to a lost fishing trawler, his boss Trish is half a world away, investigating a mysterious death in Iceland. Hull and Iceland have traditionally been united by fishing - in this case, they are linked by a secret concealed for half a century and a series of brutal killings that have never been connected.   

Until now - when the secrets of the dead have returned to prey on the living.

Not so good

I have all these macavoy books but this I feel is a let down.
I love the main characters and narrator top class it’s just the story was boring and predictable.
I’d like to see more from the group around macavoy just make it a bit like MacBride books develope the characters around the main ones and make the story’s longer.if it carry’s on like this then I’m starting to have had enough.the kid is cool the wife seems predictable.i don’t know

Great Entertainment

I thoroughly enjoyed this book. A very entertaining story with many twists and turns, it kept me listening to the end. Expertly narrated using a range of authentic accents. Recommended.
