When a Cambridge student dramatically attempts to take her own life, DI Mark Joesbury realizes that the university has developed an unhealthy record of young people committing suicide in extraordinary ways. Against huge personal misgivings, Joesbury sends young policewoman DC Lacey Flint to Cambridge, with a brief to work undercover, posing as a depression-prone, vulnerable student. Psychiatrist Evi Oliver is the only person in Cambridge who knows who Lacey really is - or so they both hope.
But as the two women dig deeper into the darker side of university life, they discover a terrifying trend.... And when Lacey starts experiencing the same disturbing nightmares reported by the dead girls, she knows that she is next.

Lacey Flint No.2
The sense of evil and the building of tension.
The moments where something is coming in the dark and Lacey is alone - particularly running in a dark forest.
I felt the narrator did a great job. Lacey is an excellent protagonist as she is so flawed and makes mistakes.
I also liked the linking in of characters from the first book - following their story along was interesting.
I didnt laugh or cry but I certainly had an increased heart rate!!!!
No one does the 'wake up in the night to a noise' type drama better.
Bolton is writing gripping, satisfying and substantial British crime and is a pleasure to 'read'. I find aspects of her writing fulfilling in that they have quite a literary sense to them rather than the short, choppy writing of some crime authors. She is good at vulnerability without being soppy - we dont get overdone with romance although there are hints. Her female characters are particularly clear and unsentimental.
I look forward to more!
Dead Seared - another great book
