Summary

This story includes a bonus short story

When Dorothy Guildford is found stabbed to death in her home, all signs point to her husband, Peter. The forensic psychologist is convinced there's more to the case than meets the eye, but Police Scotland are certain they have their man. 

While DC Kirsty Wilson searches for evidence that will put Peter away for good, she is shocked to discover a link with a vast human-trafficking operation that Detective Superintendent William Lorimer has been investigating for months. But before they can interrogate him, Peter is brutally attacked. 

With one person dead and another barely hanging on, the clock is ticking for DC Wilson and DSI Lorimer. And the stakes grow higher still when one of their own is kidnapped....

Unbelievable

Wish I had stuck to my first impression of this author ....not very good ......the story line was drab and the characters boring ....on the positive side the narrator does manage to cure my insomnia......never again

Ludicrous - and ENOUGH with the baby mush.

I've read all the books in this series and I had forgotten I had said 'Never Again' when I finished the last one, so it's my own fault I got lumbered with this piece of nonsense. I know it is fiction, but surely there has to be some degree of believability? Difficult to elaborate without turning a review into a list of spoilers. Just say that from the first crime to the ludicrous number of coincidences in the plot it stretches credibility too far. Working pregnancy, or lack thereof, into almost as big a theme as the crimes in fifteen books over sixteen years has also become very wearing.

Joe Dunlop (naturally) does a good job with the Scottish accents, but the author throws in various English, Slovakian, and Australian characters for him to voice and he struggle, or later in the book seems to forget what he used for them earlier. Even names are causes for sniggering, one of the female characters surname is pronounced Faarench, and it sounds like a very affected way of saying 'French'. For someone of Alex Gray's age and background to include a character called Dr. White can only be deliberate, and if so, a poor joke.

This time it really is 'Never Again' and I just hope Audible's refund policy extends to cover bad memory on the part of the purchaser.
