Publisher's Summary

When the body of Thomas Magner's business partner is found dead in his car on the outskirts of Anstruther, all evidence points to suicide. And Magner himself, a wealthy property developer, is currently under investigation for a series of alleged rapes from 30 years ago. In total 15 women are prepared to go to court to testify against Magner but one by one they inexplicably withdraw their complaints until only five remain. With the CPS now reconsidering its case, one of Magner's accusers is killed in a hit-and-run - and the abandoned car is found to be registered to one T Magner.
DCI Andy Gilchrist is assigned to the hit-and-run case and soon discovers that Magner's murky past is very much seeping into the present. How did he acquire his wealth? How his first wife die? And why did his business partner commit suicide?And was Magner a serial rapist in his youth? Or was he something far worse?

Any additional comments?

After a few duff down loads I am restored by an exciting listen. Am in very critical mode as laid low with back injury. Only thing keeping me sane is Audible!

Looking forward to more from this author!

D.I. Gilchrist is a very likeable character and doesn't have a drinking problem so the reader doesn't have to spend ages sludging through endless diversions about his personal life. This is a well-written and fast paced investigation that will keep your interest from start to finish. It all starts when a family man is found dead in his car - apparently a suicide which would seem to be confirmed when the slaughter of the man's family is discovered a little later. The brutal killing of his wife and other details of the man's death contradict this hypothesis and Gilchrist and his team set out to find the culprit. The narrator is excellent.
