Publisher's Summary

Someone, a woman or somebody pretending to be a woman, is writing to convicted rapists in prison, befriending them and then brutally killing them when they are released. DI Tom Thorne must discover the link between these killings and a murder/suicide that took place twenty-five years before; a tragedy to which the only witnesses were two small children, now adults and nowhere to be found. How can you escape a past that will do a lot more than just catch up with you?
And how can Thorne catch a killer when he doesn't really care about the victims?


What the Critics Say

"For those who have not yet come across the implacable D.I. Thorne and his team, treat yourself. You won't be disappointed." ( Sunday Express)

A powerful book

Strange title this although all is revealed in the story which gives the truth to it. A cracking story with an interesting twist to the outcome. One can really feel for this policeman whose character comes over well as a real person with real life every day problems.

I was not keen on the overuse of the 'F' word throughout as this may spoil it for some people. I know this is the way that men talk to each other but it is not quite so necessary here except perhaps for emphasis.

Dark but brilliant

I'm so disappointed that the music is back. It really does spoil it so much. It turns the enjoyment of the book to annoyance. The Story excellent, onwards to Book 4,hoping for no music or deep breathing noises!
