Summary

Set under the brooding skies of North Norfolk. Meet Sara Hirst as she searches for her lost father and finds that great beauty sometimes conceals great violence.

Detective Sara Hirst has moved from London to Norfolk Police's Serious Crimes Unit. She wants to know the truth about her father, who has connections to the area. Her mother won't tell her the real story.

A new job. A new place. Same old problems.

Sara's first call-out is to a decomposing body discovered in a ditch on a local farm. How does the murder relate to a recent spate of thefts? Who wanted the victim dead?

Then the case grows very personal....

Contains mature themes.

Struggled

Narration is awful, kept preserving but have now given up. No pause when changing to different scenes.

Great story, well read. Highly recommended.

I loved this novel, and enjoyed the performance too, although the narrator did seem to struggle a little at first with the Norfolk accent.
The characters and plot kept me full engaged throughout.
Highly recommended!

Too Long,.. Too Brutal..: Too Cruel

Sigh.. I don’t know why I didn’t just give up on it after the first few chapters...
I felt compelled to finish a thoroughly disappointing book... ugh
