Summary

When a teenage girl is strangled and left for dead by an attacker she describes has having the head of a dog, the police are baffled. But when the body of another young woman is found mutilated and wrapped in a white linen sheet, DI Wesley Peterson suspects that the killer is performing an ancient ritual linked to Anubis, the jackal-headed Egyptian god of death and mummification. Meanwhile, archaeologist Neil Watson has been called to Varley Castle to catalogue the collection of Edwardian amateur Egyptologist, Sir Frederick Varley. However, as his research progresses, Neil discovers that Wesley’s strange murder case bears sinister similarities to four murders that took place near Varley Castle in 1903.

Poor narrator.

Narrator changes the main characters by changing accent and voice. Totally unacceptable in a series like this.

Narrator was a disappointment

Why is there no continuity with accents n a series like this? Wesley’s voice didn’t fit with his back story at all. Had to listen to it on1.25 speed to get it over with

Good book - shame the narrator has changed

Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?

Yes - it is to Kate Ellis' usual standard

Any additional comments?

This is a new narrator and it's difficult to distinguish individuals due to them having different accents from previous books.

Another twisting story from a very accomplished writer. I can’t wait for the next one!
