Publisher's Summary

The second in the terrifying DI Callanach crime series.

In the midst of a rock festival, a charity worker is sliced across the stomach. He dies minutes later. In a crowd of thousands, no one saw his attacker. The following week, the body of a primary school teacher is found in a Dumpster in an Edinburgh alley, strangled with her own woolen scarf.

DI Ava Turner and DI Luc Callanach have no motive and no leads - until around the city, graffitied on buildings, words appear describing each victim.

It's only when they realise the words are appearing before rather than after the murders that they understand the killer is announcing his next victim...and the more innocent the better.

"Must read! With nail-biting twists at every turn, [Perfect Remains] will have readers gripped from start to finish." (Closer)

"Without doubt, this is one of the best first detective series I have read." (Woman's Way Magazine)

    "Put together well..."

    Firstly, I think the narration of this is considerably better than the last DI Callanach novel.

    Secondly, although it relies on some pretty unlikely events, it does so in a manner that avoids being irritating, and the book is entertaining throughout.

    "Excellent New Series"

    I've just finished this, the second book featuring DI Callanach and am massively impressed with Helen Field's writing. The narrators too have been excellent. I loved the first book and enjoyed this one even more: twisting plots, red herrings, characters I can genuinely care about - and some I can genuinely loathe! Though a bit gory for me at times, that is part of the genre and very well written. I hope Ms Fields continues with these well-crafted and interesting characters, including Tripp, Salter, Lively, et al, as well as the two excellent leads and I look forward to reading more in the future.

    "Grisly but gripping!"

    After the first book I couldn't wait for this - and I wasn't disappointed! The story, although grim, was gripping. The characters rounded and enthralling. And I'm certain that the chemistry between Luc & Ava has to explode soon! Super audio book, thanks also to the narrator.

    "Good story, bad accent!"

    I thoroughly enjoyed this book apart from the dreadful 'French' accent! DI Callanach sounds more oriental than french (I live in France) and it was irritating. It's a shame because I find the storyline gripping and the characters interesting but the accent definitely detracted from a 5* rating.
