Summary

After the tragic death of his lover, Helen Flemming, Eisenmenger throws himself back into his work as a forensic pathologist. The newly promoted Chief Inspector Beverley Wharton brings him in to help on the grisly discovery of a severed head in a local farmyard.

When a headless – but female – body then turns up in a dustbin, they must acknowledge that this shows all the signs of the work of a serial killer. However, this killer seems to have scientific knowledge and a desire to experiment with his victims in his search for the ultimate soul…

An Unhelpful Review

There is something not quite right about this story. All the ingredients are there but it had lost something in the telling. This is not a criticism of Sean Barrett's superb narration; but of the quality of ... what? The language perhaps? A hastiness or laziness in the choice of words? Too many easy cliches? Characters with too little credibility? Something isn't 100%.

And I tell you what's really annoying. Each chapter is preluded with a single line from the chapter you are about to hear. What's that all about? Every time you hear the words used in context they jar with the story. It emphasises a handful of words that then just distract from the reading.

Sorry, this review doesn't help does it? I am not saying, don't buy it, because it's basically fine. I'm just a trifle irritated with the author.

More of the same......

However it kept me interested to the end...... Mainly due to,yet another,superb narration by Sean Barrett.

Not for the faint hearted

I have now listened to 8 of the 12 in this series and felt it was time to do a review before beginning No 9. If you are looking for happily ever after's, you are not going to get it with this series, people die, sometimes characters you have enjoyed, some you dislike, you see another side to them. I don't come from a medical background so at times the gore is a bit much but I have managed to move on from this. Possibly if I were reading instead of listening I would need the dictionary beside me to understand the litany of words that are completely foreign to me. You need to read the books in order, otherwise it would be difficult to keep track of the many personalities and characters. 4 to go!
