Critic reviews

"Narrator Clare Corbett flawlessly creates the accents and setting of Lenchester, England, while introducing Detective Chief Inspector Whitney Walker and her polar opposite, psychologist Georgina Cavendish.... Corbett's best creation is pathologist Clare Dexter whose eccentricities add a bit of levity. The well-rendered step-by-step procedural, with its gripping conclusion, makes for an exceptional listen." (AudioFile Magazine, review of Cavendish & Walker)

Don't bother

I was surprised by the reviews after listening to this myself and I found it a very tedious listen. The writing style is very basic too much "he said", "she said" and the writer seems very unknowledgeable, no police officer would assume that there would be a serial killer from one crime scene. Luckily it was in the free catalogue so I haven't wasted a credit.

Good

I listen to this book right after I finished the first one. I love how the friendship between george and whitney progresses from the first book. The murder plot is good enough to keep my interest. The narrator done a good job too.

Enjoyable

I’ve listened to the first two books in this series & am thoroughly enjoying them. Clare Corbett is a brilliant narrator & has different voices for the characters which makes it easier to know who is speaking. I’m now about to start listening to the third book.

A great listen!

It was another great novel by Sally Rigby beautifully narrated by Clare Corbett. A true thriller with sensitive background stuff.
Listen and enjoy.

Enjoyable

This is the second of the series, which I listened to straight after the first book.

I love the characters and the narrator is excellent, but I felt the story was a bit rushed towards the end.

Overall I enjoyed it, but I think I might have a break before I start book 3.

This series gets better and better

I discovered the Cavendish and Walker series through Audible plus and listened to 'The Night Shift', 'Deadly Games' and 'Fatal Justice' back to back. I just love everything about these books, from the plotting to the fantastic characterisation, how the characters develop as the series progresses and the fabulous narration by Clare Corbett. I can't wait to get stuck into book 3 and see what case Whitney and George have to crack next!
I must admit that this book did make me a bit nervous before starting it as it does cover the topic of paedophiles grooming and abusing young girls via a social media app. However, there was no graphic detail about the crimes, just mentioning of how the men made the girls trust them and how easy it was to get them to agree to meet up. Scary but very realistic stuff but not graphic at all. I liked the way the police tackled catching the vigilante who was killing the men and how it then tackled her reasons for doing so. A really well plotted and executed book about an all too real topic but that was handled sensitively.

Loved it - even though the subject was tough

Sally Rigby did a great job covering a hard topic - online grooming of underage girls by abusive men. It was compelling, informative and balanced, with a gripping storyline. Clare Corbett is magnificent in her performance. I can’t wait for the next book.

Love this author

I’ve just discovered Sally Rigby - listening to her first book in this series 2-Days ago!

Her writing is excellent and I was totally invested in the book in the first 30-minutes of listening. I checked Audible about 1-hour in hoping to find it was a series, and was delighted to see there are many more books!

I’m binging on Sally Rugby’s books now 1 just finished this book tonight, and will fall asleep listening to book 3.

It’s really very nice that Sally says hello to all who finished book 1 and again book 2. She shares a little about herself and her process in writing.

Love her already! I’m hooked!!!!

Difficult material to listen

Very difficult material to listen to because of the subject matter. The story is a good one though. I'm looking forward to the next book in the series.

Wow

This is a good thought provoking story. Not only will you think and learn while listening to this story. Every parent needs to read this story and then discuss it with your child.
