Summary

A girl’s body is found in a dustbin. 'Dead Meat' is written on a note found with her. 

The girl was part of a group of bullies from the local school. But DI Calladine recognises the MO of Craig Donnelly, a killer he thought he’d put away forever. And coincidentally Donnelly has just been released from prison. But when Detective Calladine charges in, he finds out that Donnelly has a watertight alibi and is under the protection of the local vicar, who thinks Donnelly is a changed man. 

When another girl goes missing from the same group of friends, Calladine must look elsewhere for the killer and comes across a sinister online predator who was in touch with all the girls. DS Ruth Bayliss is back from maternity leave, but even her skills and common sense can’t crack the case. 

In a race against time, they must stop the killer, someone who may even be close to home, before he continues his vicious killing spree.

Good not great

In my opinion this is the weakest of the bunch, still good by any measure but a bit of a letdown after the previous 5. JK however does his usual brilliant performance

Great!

I could listen to at least 20 more books in this series! Ms. Durrant, please keep writing. Great narrator as well.
