Summary

Summer 1977. The police have barely got their heads around an arson attack when a second occurs. Where’s the evidence? A detective is following up a hunch when the arsonist strikes again. This time, the attack on an Orphanage leads to the loss of life of children and adults.

An arrest is made. The suspect ticks some of the boxes, but detective "Chunky" Mason isn’t sure they’ve got their man. As the investigation steps up a gear Mason begins to unearth an unpalatable truth.

In this second short-listens murder mystery, we follow the twists and turns of the Norfolk detectives as they tackle their latest investigation.

Short murder mystery

This is the second of the Short Read Murder Mysteries series. Each book centres on a particular character from the same police department of the 1970's. While the tale is short it moves along at a steady pace and manages to convey the complete story. It isn't easy to get in depth details into a short story but the author adds enough to hold the reader's interest from the start and gives each character the right amount of detail that they are believable.

The narrator does a good job although I did have to fiddle with my equaliser settings to boost the treble to make the audio a little clearer, but that may have been due to the poor speakers in my work van.

I was given this review copy audiobook at my request and have voluntarily left this unbiased review.

A great short story

What an enjoyable listen this was. The writing is great and I can picture the scenes well. Although this is a sort story the descriptions of each character was enough to allow me to know them and they were brought to life by the Narrator who I think voiced the characters really well.
