Summary

In August 1992 a young mother and her two small sons were brutally murdered in the woods behind their home. Her neighbour, Andrew Gyle, was convicted of the crime and sentenced to life imprisonment.

Now, 23 years later, a macabre discovery throws new light on the case. Could there have been a shocking miscarriage of justice?

DCI Colin Anderson and his partner, DI Costello, uncover serious discrepancies in the original investigation; it becomes clear that not everyone is telling them the truth.

Critic reviews

"Masterful writing, vivid characters, and a highly imaginative, terrifying, and byzantine plot." ( Booklist on The Tears of Angels)
"If you’re a fan of the police procedural, with a very human protagonist, then this is well worth a look." ( Puzzle Doctor)

Returning this book!

What would have made Rat Run better?

I can't stand the narration, after listening to Macpherson, and getting used to the characters portrayed, this is dreadful the whole persona of the characters has changed for the worse.. The pitch is too high, and not sure which accent she is trying to convey as that changes too, almost with every conversation if you are going to change the narrator change at least use same sex, and similar accent.

Would you ever listen to anything by Caro Ramsay again?

I love Caro Ramsay books normally

How did the narrator detract from the book?

Awful, just really awful.... characters were destroyed. and will not buy if she does narration again.

You didn’t love this book--but did it have any redeeming qualities?

Couldn't listen to it after a few chapters.

Any additional comments?

Try and match narrators to previous books... tone, sex, accent.

Fantastic

Brilliant book from start to finish so much drama and suspence. Could not guess who done it which I think makes a brilliant read
