Summary

The thrilling first audiobook in the best-selling DI Kelly Porter series.

After a scandal forces DI Kelly Porter out of the Met, she returns home to the Lake District. Crimes in the Cumbrian constabulary tend to be minor, but Kelly begins work on a cold case that shocked the local community - the abduction and brutal murder of a 10-year-old girl.

Meanwhile, Kelly is also investigating two seemingly straightforward crimes: a case involving an illegal immigrant and a robbery following the death of a local businessman. But evidence comes to light that reveals a web of criminal activity beyond anything Kelly imagined. Behind the veneer of sleepy, touristy towns lies a dark and dangerous underworld.

As Kelly threatens to expose those with much to lose, she risks paying the ultimate price to get to the truth....

Thoroughly enjiyable

Great book, excellent characters and really well delivered. Done slightly silly decisions made by the DI but I've already downloaded the next one

We've met these bad guys in so
many movies and boks. And the good guys seem so familiar. It is still a good listen.

A new favorite author

I stayed up way too late listening to this book until I got to the end. There was some definite tension in the final chapters.

Yes, there are some gruesome scenes of violence but no more than is in any police procedural. The story of human trafficking is never pleasant and neither is dog fighting or forcing men to fight to the death for the pleasure of the observers. These latter scenes are short but add to the perversity of the bad guys

DI Kelley Porter is a strong character and I’m glad this is the first book in a series. The narration is quite good. I hope more of this series becomes available on Audible soon.

Nothing special

Had I known this about human trafficking I’d have passed it by. That template has been exhausted in my opinion. So this was another like most on the topic. Nothing special. Good narration.

Enjoyed it

I enjoyed this book. The narrator should read more books. Story line was intense. I'd recommend
