Summary

5 September 1992: Fifteen-year-old Norma Jean Judd disappeared from her home never to be seen again. Exactly 18 years later, Bryan Judd, Norma Jean’s twin, is pulled from the searing heat of a hospital incinerator. When his charred remains are examined, the murder squad confirms that his death was no accident. Could his death be linked to his sister’s disappearance?

For DI Peter Shaw and DS George Valentine, the case proves their most intriguing yet. As they begin their investigation into Bryan’s life, they uncover a secret world of criminal activity. Can Shaw and Valentine solve Bryan’s murder before any more lives are violently snatched away? And will they ever learn the truth about what happened to Norma Jean?

Fiendish plotting keeps you guessing

There are several subplots in this deceptively simple story of a missing teen and her murdered twin. The tension builds consistently throughout. Keeping you listening to the end. This story was a bit too gruesome in places for me, hence the three. Jim Kelly has a talent for making characters three dimensional - the bad guys can be quite likeable when they aren’t killing, bettering or embezzling. The King’s Lynn Tourism Board are probably not fans... the mean streets of this town are truly mean.
