Publisher's Summary

Kaye Whiting went to buy a birthday present and didn't come back. She isn't dead, or physically injured. But she is alone and very, very scared. Fifty miles away in Cambridge town centre, a deeply disturbed young woman is standing by a payphone. She knows she often feels compelled to do harmful things and is driven by a desire to make a call.
DC Gary Goodhew is one of the detectives assigned to find Kaye, and when her body is discovered, the only clue to the potential murderer is a woman's voice on his answerphone saying, "Kaye isn't the first and won't be the last...."
Alison Bruce was born in Surrey, but moved to Cambridge in 1998. She has learnt about Cambridge and East Anglia from researching her two previous non-fiction books, Cambridgeshire Murders (Sutton Publishing) and The Billingtons, Death in the Family (also published by Sutton). She is married with two small children and enjoys horse riding and dancing, when not working on her new crime fiction series featuring DC Gary Goodhew.


What the Critics Say

"A fast-paced gritty tale guaranteed to have you hooked from beginning to end." (Cambridgeshire Pride)
"Meaty and deeply plotted." (Morning Star)
"DC Gary Goodhew could just develop into a worthy successor to those venerable of the police procedural now drawing their pensions." (Tribune)

Deeply disappointed

This book seems to have received excellent reviews and as it appeared on audibles recommendations I thought I'd give it a try - I struggled to get to the end of the first part and I'm afraid I had to give up. The narration is uninteresting and I just wasn't gripped by the story-line, so I cannot pinpoint which of the two (if not both) was my reason for not finishing it. Hopefully it is just me, and if you choose to download this book you are not disappointed.

Another gripping DC Goodhew book!

Another exciting story and one that keeps you on the edge of your seat right to the end. DC Goodhew is really getting his feet under the table and his intuition and intelligence is paying dividends. I listened to this book every spare minute I had and my husband started to tut about the amount of times I was sitting, standing or walking with headphones on. I'd like to say that normal service has been resumed but I've just downloaded the next book!
