Publisher's Summary

An enigmatic policeman - currently the subject of an internal investigation - is found burned to death in his car on the Southend seafront. A vulnerable young woman, fresh out of the care system, is trying to discover the truth behind the sudden death of her best friend.
As DS Frank Pearson and DC Catherine Russell from the Essex Police Major Investigation Team are brought in to solve the mystery that surrounds their colleague's death, they're under intense pressure to crack the case without damaging the force's reputation.
When a dramatic turn of events casts a whole new light on both cases, the way forward is far from clear. Were the victims connected in some way? And just how much should Pearson and Russell reveal to their bosses as they begin to unearth some dark secrets that the force would rather keep buried?
Mark Hardie's stylish and gripping debut introduces a brilliant new detective duo to the world of crime fiction, weaving together two suspenseful stories that end in a breathtaking finale.

Good first book

With crime thrillers there can be a tendency for them to follow a pattern and become predictable, to enjoy the progress we need to be interested in the characters, this book works at the level of you are interested in the characters on both sides of the law. I found it kept me listening attentively and the narration was very good.

The ending has interesting twists , you get a good idea of where its heading but the outcome leaves you feeling it was worthwhile listening and I look forward to more from this new author.

Sllightly confusing but great overall

I thoroughly enjoyed this book, after an admittedly false start, I just could not get into it at first but came back to it and started over. The story does play in and out of different times which can be a little disorienting if you're not paying attention (which I often don't) , but it's well worth hanging in there, I doubt that you'll guess what really happened until the end.
