    "Truly Outstanding"

    I get through a lot of audiobooks - usually between 6-8 per month and many of them fall into the same genre as this.

    This is amongst the best I’ve listened to in recent months. It’s quite astounding this is a debut novel.

    The story was gripping and characters well fleshed out.

    My only criticism is the narration. There was nothing particularly unpleasant about it, it just was not on par with some of the great narrators. It’s a shame lesser books have better narrators - otherwise this is a 5/5 read.

    "An interesting & accomplished new voice"

    While I found the protagonist annoying to start with, the story is so interesting it kept me going. Well written twists and turns kept me guessing. Wry observations and a few outright laughs. I hope we get more of the murder team in future books.

    "Constructed & soppy"

    This book was a bit of a disappointment, with a constructed storyline & a soppy father daughter relationship (phew).

    "Enjoyable twisty tale - a great read- one that was difficult to stop!"

    Really enjoyed the first person narrative and our lead character Cat as she negotiates her job as a london murder DC- while her upbringing and family story plays out. Will certainly be looking out for Caz Frear books in the future!

    Story
    "Gave up on chapter 8"

    I never normally give up on a book but my god this was so slow and boring. I found the characters irritating, especially all the unfunny “banter” between police officers and the caricature of a psychologist. It’s a shame as from the blurb it sounded like an interesting premise, but everything is so over-described and there’s a general sense of trying too hard that I couldn’t put up with after a while. I kept losing track of what was actually happening because there was no real substance to it, just waffle.

    "kept me guessing "

    loved this book full of twists and turns,leading you to a conclusion then spinning away again nicely written well crafted and the characters are well thought out and just enough background to keep them real without going partridge.
    definitely recommend
