Summary

'Sara! Remember! Victoria and Albert. All I can say. They're here. They're - '

These are the last words Sara Prior will ever hear from her husband.  

As DS Nathan Cody struggles to make sense of the enigmatic message and solve the brutal murder, it soon becomes clear that Sara is no ordinary bereaved wife. Taking the investigation into her own hands, Sara is drawn into a world of violence that will lead her in a direction she would never have suspected.   

For Cody, meanwhile, things are about to get personal in the darkest and most twisted ways imaginable.

A Real Rip-Snorter of a Book!

There are lots of books out there claiming to be 'psychological' thrillers but few make me feel as if I've just genuinely experienced something that has toyed with my mind! Step forward David Jackson who invites me every so often into the tortured and exhausted mind of DS Nathan Cody. It's never been an easy place to be following the events that saw him brutalised by men in evil clowns outfits.

As we start this one Cody is already in bad shape after the child abduction case of the previous book and what it took out of him. His boss fears that the terrifying murder that kicks this one off will be too much for her star detective who is showing distinct signs of trauma. It goes very much downhill for Cody after that and what he lives through in the subsequent chapters is a nightmare that pushes him to the brink.

Jonathan Keeble is the man charged with breathing life into this series and to my mind does a fine job. In truth, I doubt his accents will convince the locals so to speak but I enjoy his gruff and stressed Cody and believe he is great for the action and tension that pervades these books.

This is one of several good detective series available now and is well worth going for if you like something with a bit of an edge to it because Jackson is one sharp cookie!

What a ride!

As usual Jackson comes up with the goods, this fourth book in the Nathan Cody series does not disappoint. If anything this further instalment is darker and more complex than before. Highly recommended

Exciting read!

Gripping! Love DS Cody...Jonathan Keeble is a wonderful narrator-the character Sarah in this book reminds me of a female version of Jack Reacher! Read this in practically 2 sittings! Nothing got done!
Marvellous author brought alive by the many ‘voices’ of Jonathan Keeble...keep em coming!!!

A bit too implausible

The most enjoyable part of this book was revisiting the likeable characters. However, following a promising start, the story took off into a rather strange direction and became quite ridiculous in parts.

Fantastic narrator unbelievable story

I’ve enjoyed this series but it has become more and more unbelievable. This was just too bizarre and ridiculous. The narrator, as always was excellent. I don’t think I’ll bother with the next one.

Another good listen

I love the narrator Jonathan Keeble, this is another fantastic performance from him. I have really enjoyed this series and although I did enjoy this latest book, it is probably my least favorite.

Webbley was very different in this book and to be honest quite annoying. She questioned and challenged Cody's every move, despite him being her boss, I also found the clown story lost some of its creepy feel, to the point they were almost chatty on the phone? Not sure if it is just being dragged out a bit too long.

Overall I enjoyed the book, but found the previous ones better.

Liked it less than previous stories in this series

We’ve always known that Waldo was there, as a threat, but this story makes him into an omniscient Moriarty-type character. A bit too much, I thought. Also missed Megan. She’s there, but very much a minimal player. Worried that the next installment will just be the same. Narration excellent, as always.
