Summary

"With great characters and a plot so taut and gripping I devoured it in two sittings". (John Bowen, author)

This detective's best lead could be a voice from beyond the grave....

Bath, England. As Detective Andrew Deans struggles to be present for his wife's challenging fertility treatment, the case of a missing college student hits a dead end. Under pressure from his job and his marriage, Deans' inquiry takes a turn when he receives impossible-to-deny evidence from a psychic....

Despite his lack of belief in the paranormal, following the ghostly thread escalates his missing person case into a murder investigation. Unable to focus on his responsibilities at home, Deans works with the medium to build evidence from a new source: the voice of the victim herself.

But as the full horror emerges, will Deans make the ultimate sacrifice to put the killer behind bars?

Set against the dramatic North Devon landscape, this unrelenting British crime thriller will be enjoyed by fans of LJ Ross, Damien Boyd, Angela Marsons and Peter James.

Book one of the international best-selling detective deans mystery trilogy.

Disappointed with narration

I love this book and have read it a couple of time now I was looking forward to listening to it but I didn’t enjoy the narrator at all. She didn’t bring the story to life and I found her voice monotonous.

Pathetic drivel .

I can’t believe the arrogance of this author to believe that anyone that has listened to this book will then waste more time and money by buying potentially another load of old nonsense like this one , even with a competent narrator in place of this one I can only believe that another book like this one would be just as dire .

Poor choice of narrator...

Reasonable story if a little longwinded. Parts with Dean said... Denise said...Dean said, which can be tiring. However the real problem is the narration. I'm sure the lady would be amazing at something such as Mallory Towers, but a detective thriller is well out of her comfort zone (in my personal opinion).

Lives up to its claims

James Mortmain is a consummate storyteller and his background in policing shines through as the story unfolds. Can't wait for parts 2 and 3 to see how Deans's psychic abilities develop and where they lead!
