Summary

An absolutely gripping thriller with pause-resisting suspense

Lucy watches the doctor leave, then turns to the nameless victim on the table. "I promise I will catch whoever did this to you," she whispers.

In charge of a new team, Detective Lucy Harwin is called out to attend the discovery of a woman’s body in an abandoned, crumbling church and is quickly plunged into a case that will test her leadership skills to the limit.

With no leads except the crudely-fashioned crucifix the victim was displayed on, Lucy is at a complete loss. That is, until another body turns up: an elderly woman who devoted her life to the church.

Faced with a killer stalking the streets of her small coastal town, while also throwing herself into work to forget the love of her life, Lucy’s first case is turning into a nightmare.

Linking the killer to the church where her own teenage daughter volunteers, it seems the threat is quickly drawing closer to Lucy and those she loves. Can she catch this monster and prevent a tragedy that will tear her world apart?

An addictive and pause-resisting crime thriller that will hook fans of Patricia Gibney, LJ Ross, and Angela Marsons from the very first minute.

Loved it

Took a bit to warm up to narrator, but fine after a couple of chapters as the story gripped me. Great story kept me guessing…surprising ending as with the previous book I had read. Off to purchase book three of this authors now.

Audible messed up big time

Audible messed up big time by labelling this book 3. It is book 1 I started with book 2 labelled 1. As a result I knew the conclusion of what should have been a suspenseful climax.

Disappointed with Audible

For people who wish to listen to the Lucy Harwin books in order, this is really the 1st book of the series
Audible has it as the 3rd.

Wrong pigging order

Got confused with the book being out of sync. Thanks Audible! Was looking forward to seeing if Matty and Lucy sorted it out but they've not long met!! Love ur writing Helen Phifer. Enjoyable narrator. Looking forward to more books. For now I will just have to reread all your books.

Absolutely brilliant

Part of the DI Lucy Harwin series, another brilliant crime story from a fantastic author. The story line was absolutely gripping, so many twists and turns and very exciting. A brilliant listen indeed.

Order is wrong

On amazon and online this is shown as the third book in the series so I listened to it last! It turns out it’s the first! Great but but ruined due to error with audible etc would have been better to listen to them in the order they were intended

Not The Third

As others have mentioned this is in fact the first in the series not the third. Enjoyed it, if A bit far fetched. Of all the series this is perhaps the weakest which is why I'm glad I came to it last. But worth a listen
