The Chasebridge Killer is out, racial tension is rising and the mutilated body of a young Muslim man is found in the stairwell of a tower block in Doncaster. As he gets drawn into the case, Sean Denton's family life and his police job become dangerously entwined.
Meanwhile a young woman is trying to piece her life back together, but someone is out there - someone who will never let her forget what she's done.


What the Critics Say

"Exciting, pacey, vivid and humane. Read it." (Lesley Glaister)
"The descriptions of the setting, Yorkshire at its bleakest, the characters, were so subtly slipped in that I absorbed them subliminally.... I am now reading this excellent book again." (

Loved this as much as the first Sean Denton book

Would you listen to Bones in the Nest again? Why?

Yes I would because I thoroughly enjoyed it.

Who was your favorite character and why?

Gosh hard question. All the characters are so well written I couldn't pick out one in particular.

What about Jonathan Keeble’s performance did you like?

I love listening to books narrated by Jonathan Keeble, I first heard him narrating LJ Ross's series of Inspector Ryan books and felt his voice set the tone perfectly.

Any additional comments?

Sean Denton is back and has now become a fully fledged police constable. He has a new partner, Gavin, but we still have characters from the first novel. Lizzy, his love interest is back from a sojourn to London. A killer has been released from prison on probation, she is said to have killed a young man on the Chasebridge Estate ten years previously. The first half of the book is set both in Doncaster, following Sean Denton, and in York where we get an insight into the life of the newly released prison 'Chloe'. Shortly after her release a murder is committed in one of the tower blocks on the same estate. Once again this is paced perfectly and the story is woven with skill and precision. The twist is excellent and unexpected. Most enjoyable. Terribly sad to think there is only one more in the pipeline as Helen Cadbury sadly passed away this year.
