Summary

From Kindle Storyteller-Shortlisted Author...a Serial Killer Thriller

The glamorous CEO of an anti-abortion charity has been found horribly mutilated and strangled to death in her own kitchen. Before long, the killer strikes again, and again. And now the pattern emerges. The victims are all high-profile Christians.

Back from the brink of killing herself, and newly promoted to DCI, Stella Cole takes a call from her sergeant that puts her plans on hold. Stella and her team at the Special Investigations Unit are racing to stop the serial killer dubbed “Lucifer” by the media, before he can take another life.

To add to Stella’s problems, London’s ambitious Deputy Mayor for Policing and Crime is interfering in her investigation, and someone on the inside is leaking details to the press.

A gritty and disturbing psychological crime thriller....

Let The Bones be Charred is the fourth book in this series of hard-hitting crime thrillers. Following Stella’s recovery from the murders of her husband and child, it brings the troubled detective face to face with a serial killer with a grudge against the Church. The action takes place in the long hot summer of 2018.

Can she track down and stop the killer before any more women are murdered? Including the wife of a university professor who may, just, hold the key to the killer’s motivations and methods.

Outstanding fourth book

I was dubious, when I started listening to this one, i was convinced I'd already read/listened to it, so familiar was the introduction, however, I could not have been more wrong, this is one amazing book, all of this series has been amazing but this one seems even better than the first three, possibly because of the long wait I've endured for it to be released, but I enjoyed it immensely.
It is true that the narrator is not good with accents, at all, but she is a good narrator nonetheless and should not be discounted because of her terrible Scottish (and other) accents, she does have some irritating mispronunciations that drive me mad too but we all say things differently and this should not be held against us.
My recommendation is that you buy this if you've enjoyed the previous Stella Coletitles because you will LOVE this one, if you've never tried them, then start at book one (Hit and Run), you'll not be sorry.

Great take but awful narration

This is a good book spoilt terribly by the narrators efforts at regional accents. Her Scottish accents are appalling and at times impossible to understand

Ruined

Was this a good book? Unfortunately i don't know as narrator was terrible, a real strain to understand what was being said! Pity.
