Summary

A protest group hits the headlines when unrest at a women's peace camp explodes into murder. Already on the scene, journalist Lindsay Gordon desperately tries to strike a balance between personal and professional responsibilities. As she peels back the layers of deception surrounding the protest and its opponents, she finds that no one - ratepayer or reporter, policeman or peace woman - seems wholly above suspicion. Then Lindsay uncovers a truth that even she can scarcely believe....

Weak everything

A weak plot with weak characters, weakly read by a poor reader. This is best avoided.

Appalling narration

The worst narration I have ever heard on an audio book. The regional accents were inconsistent and story line poor for Val McDermid... very disappointing all round.. would not recommend..
