Summary

The body of a blonde young man found in the canal is discovered to be that of a journalist who had been claiming he was onto the story of a lifetime. The area where he was murdered turns out to be subject to a land dispute. 

A young woman is adamant she remembers a childhood twin brother, but her father swears she’s an only child. And now a second young blonde is missing. Rachel King and her East Manchester CID team must determine what links this all together - or are they being led to draw connections which aren’t there? And if so, who is pulling their strings? 

About the audiobook

The first in a thrilling new crime strand. DCI Rachel King is juggling her career and home life very successfully since her divorce. But now the girls are growing up and complaining she’s never home. And their dad has moved in next door! The last thing she needs is her criminal ex-boyfriend suddenly reappearing, especially when everything points to his involvement in her investigation. If she can’t keep her past in the past, will her future in the force be over?  

If you like L J Ross, Joy Ellis and M J Arlidge, you’ll want to follow Helen H Durrant’s new team from their very first case.

About the author

Since childhood Helen H Durrant always longed to write and, after retiring from her teaching job, is now the author of three successful crime series - most regularly the Calladine & Bayliss books - set in the North of England. The Rachel King series launches Durrant’s fourth range in typical grim and gripping style.

Really good book

I couldn't stop listening, enjoyed the short, sharp chapters.
Such a good listen, Great storyline, bit gruesome for me in bits, but can't wait for the next book. Well read too.

Got potential

This book could lead to some interesting characters, the storyline was ok but not as good as previous Helens books. Big NO NO... could not beat the narrator. She drive me mad! Nearly gave up on the book as I couldn’t stand to listen to her. Sadly. Please change her for any follow up books.

Disappointing

This had the potential to be a really good listen. The story was promising, but for me, the narration let it down. Luci Fish has a pleasant narrating style, but it seemed too light for a thriller like this. She talks with a smile and whilst that it pleasant, it isn’t always appropriate when narrating about ghastly murders. Had this been read by a narrator such as Jonathan Keeble I feel it may have carried the gravitas needed.

Review

Well.... that was the a waste of a credit. Very poor in my humble opinion.
