Summary

Dublin's notorious Canal Killer is 10 years into his life sentence when a body is fished out of the Grand Canal. Detectives suspect a copycat is emulating the crimes, and they must turn to Ireland's most prolific serial killer for help. 

Will admits he has the information the cops need but will give it to only one person....

When Alison Smith gets the request from Dublin, she is pulled back to face the man she's worked so hard to forget.

Loved it!

Loved this audiobook. Amazingly, all of the characters are richly drawn, the story is very engaging and the narration is excellent (I do have a weakness for ruch Irish accents). Recommended.

Another cracker from Catherine.

As good as the Nothing Man with the different perspectives convincingly handled. Personally I’d rather the book had ended before the epilogue. The female reader also sounded less Northern Irish than in the Nothing Man but still not like a Cork person and I can’t fault her performance.

Enjoyed it but...

Some weird, annoying Americanisms, and the main protagonist narrator's attempt at a Cork accent hurt my ears

Truly awful narration

The book was poorly written and monotonous but the worst part was the narrator, particularly the female voice. she droned on in a monosyllabic, bored voice that stayed the same, even when she was apparently in danger.

Very Disappointing and a struggle to finish

I saw this book reviewed in the national press and thought it was just the type of book I really enjoyed. I found it to be a real let down and I struggled to finish it. One of the main problems was the female narrator it just sounded as if she was reading a book there was no real emotion or connection with the character she was portraying. The plot just drifted along with no twists or surprises and by the end I could not care less what had happened to Liz or what would happen to Will. There was no depth to the characters and no intention to their actions. This could have been a really great story like The Innocent Wife but ended up falling far short. Not an author I would rush to read again.
