Summary

Rea Carlisle has inherited a house from an uncle she never knew. It doesn’t take her long to clear out the dead man’s possessions, but one room remains locked.

When Rea finally forces it open, she discovers inside a chair, a table and a leather-bound book. Inside its pages are locks of hair, fingernails: a catalogue of victims. Horrified, Rea turns to the only person she can think of: DI Jack Lennon.

"What makes Stuart Neville so special is that he never forgets the human heart that beats inside the bleakest darkness." (Val McDermid)

gripping

loved this book, listened in one day whilst busy in the allotment. Really enjoyed the plot. I thought the main characters were really interesting and understandable.

Jerky narration

I just couldn't get into the story or feel for the characters as the narrator speaks in the 5 second format making the speech and descriptive text feel jerky. I found myself counting the beat. Sorry but it was a good story spoiled.
