Publisher's Summary

In a single night, Kyle Davidson's life is derailed. His relationship is over, he is denied access to his young son and everything important to him is at risk. His thoughts stumble between fear and revenge. Kyle Davidson has a choice to make.
Meanwhile, after the tragic end to a previous case, DC Gary Goodhew finds himself questioning his reasons for returning to work until the badly beaten body of a homeless man is found on Market Hill. Having known the homeless man for several years, Goodhew feels compelled to be part of the investigation - but routine lines of enquiry soon take a dark and unexpected turn.
Suddenly the Cambridge backstreets hold deadly secrets for Goodhew, and the only person who has the answers is planning one final, desperate act.

Another excellent book by Alison Bruce

I have to say I'm a great fan of Alison Bruce's books. Helped enormously by knowing Cambridge. I can't wait for the next instalment. Lovely complicated personalities and great story line. Thank you.

Incredibly boring

I cannot believe all the glowing reviews for this book, however I have just skimmed through the reviews again to find out if I was missing something - only to see that the majority of the reviews are 'written in exchange for being given a free copy of the book'. However unbiased one tries to be - if the book is a gift there is bound to be a gentle attitude towards it. (Reviews on Amazon)

I am really struggling to latch onto this book, the characters are hardly worth getting to know - certainly not particularly likeable, the story is stodgy and very very boringly written. I can hardly be bothered to waste any more time on it, I am now on chapter 14 so have to weigh up the time lost against any possible gain should it become interesting. I will give it a little longer. ...... I decided after drafting this review to skip on towards the end just to find out who and why. It wasn't worth it!
