Lucy must step into the line of fire - a stranger in a criminal underworld that butchers anyone who crosses the line. And, unknown to Lucy, she's already treading it....
Always gripping. Always gruesome. Paul Finch will leave fans of Rachel Abbott and MJ Arlidge gasping for more.

A wild ride of a story.

This book was gripping enough to listen to in two sittings. A complex story that sometimes lack credibility, as a one woman end pc takes on the whole of the north west mafia doing incredible things, making her bosses look inadequate and getting away with gross insubordination ! A bit unrealistic in today's police force I suspect, but it makes entertaining listening and if you allow for dramatic licence I'm sure you'll enjoy this tale. The narrator was good but eventually the Manchester accents became rather tedious.

Needs a health warning!!

Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?


Any additional comments?

Brilliant suspense (sometimes almost too much!) Certainly something I could not put down. Would make a good film. Sometimes I felt the main character, Lucy, was doing just a tad too much on her own, and this just scraped by being believable, but hey, fiction is about suspending disbelief and this is 100 per cent a book I got caught up in. Lovely characters, nothing cardboard here. And a plot that has many surprise twists. There is a great underlying knowledge of police procedure which underpins the novel and gives much weight to the story. Paul Finch, you're new to me, but you're definitely one of the best.
