Summary

A sadistic killer with a grudge against Rosie Gilmour is on the loose in Glasgow. 

Thomas Boag escaped from his first court appearance facing charges on a brutal murder. He's suspected in the disappearances of two other people. Now he's out for revenge.

Rosie tries to distract herself with a new story: refugees trafficked into Glasgow and used as modern-day slaves - or worse. But this investigation soon leads her into dangerous territory as it takes her up against some of Glasgow's nastiest characters, and all the while, somewhere out there, Boag is laying his trap....

I loved it

I have read all the books in this series and this was one of the best. I loved it, the early chapters were hard to listen to at times due to the grim subject matter but as the book progressed I was hooked. The narration is excellent and I have no hesitation in recommending this book.

Rosie series

I’ve listened to all the Rosie Gilmore books except the last one. I am about to start that one now after just finishing death trap. Love how the author builds on her character and makes reference to past events in previous books but doesn’t dwell on it (so you don’t feel like you are listening again to previous books. The narrators voice is wonderful! Thank you. I’m quite sad as the next book is the last one. I’ve done them all back to back and will miss Rosie 🙃

What a story.

I have lost a night's sleep listening to this audio book, I just couldn't wait to find out what happened next. The Rosie Gilmour series is absolutely riveting. Anna Smith is up there with the best, and I say again, Sarah Barron brings the characters to life in such a way, you just know you would recognise them if you saw them in the street. Fantastic, brilliant and genius. Well done.

Superb

I just love this series - Rosie is such a 'nice' lady - she cares about people, I like the relationships she has and her persistence.

The story is excellent, these novels are written from the point of view of the journalist rather than the police - I really enjoy them .......... However - as I had said on previous reviews of this series - the F*** word is overused - I know that the setting is with people of the criminal persuasion - but it is just tooooooo much.
