For decades the Moore Asylum was home to the forgotten children of Brooklyn Bay. But ever since a scandal forced its closure, the abandoned building has cast an imposing shadow. Until now - when an elderly man is found dead, his body strapped to an ancient gurney.

What disturbing secrets lie within the asylum's walls? Together with her partner, Detective Mattie Jackson, Lucy begins to unearth its terrible history and the horrors endured by the vulnerable children.
As the attacks escalate and a woman is murdered on her own doorstep, Lucy is forced into a terrifying game of cat and mouse with a twisted individual. But can Lucy stop a murderer with nothing left to lose?
An absolutely terrifying and gripping thriller that will chill fans of MJ Arlidge, Angela Marsons, and Rachel Abbott to the bone.

I wold not listen to it again, only because once i have read a book i have read it, so i know who the 'baddie' is!! i move straight on to the next book
i enjoyed how it kept flitting between the past and present and enjoyed the chemistry between the 2 main characters, i am hoping this develops further in the series
none in particular it was an all round good read, it kept me interested all the way through
Yes definitely could of easily sat and read this book in one sitting alas my schedule does not allow for this
Fantastic debut by this authr, i look forward to reading more in the series and seeing the characters develop, hopefully the 2 main characters get together!!! Narration however was good, but a bit wishy washy, an injection of excitement in her narriation wouldnt go a miss.
A brilliant story line but..
