Great story, well read
I discovered T.F Muir through Audible and have only listened to the audiobook versions of his novels.
I enjoyed the first one, An Eye for an Eye, and was not disappointed by the sequel. DI Gilchrist is deepening as a character and the relationship with his children and ex-wife is explored in more depth in this novel.
David Monteath gave an excellent performance, reading with great interpretation and believable accents.
It's just as well that audiobooks are portable as I found myself listening at all available opportunities - while in the car, walking the dog, cooking etc.
I don't think you need to have read/listened to the first one before getting this one as the stories are entirely separate and this doesn't refer in any way to the first book. I'll certainly be getting the next one.
So much gore
