Publisher's Summary

Joey McCarthy is stabbed to death in a pub car park in a random act of violence. Shortly afterwards Charlotte Stone's terminally ill mother dies, and then, within weeks, two of her teenage friends commit suicide. With her home life disintegrating and both her father and brother racing towards self-destruction, Charlotte realises that her own personal nightmare may not be over yet.
When DC Gary Goodhew finds the body of another suicide victim, he is forced to recall some deeply buried memories of an earlier death; memories which lead him to Charlotte Stone and the events in her life. From their individual points of view, they both begin to wonder whether all these tragedies are somehow linked to a bigger picture. And if they are right, then who will be the next victim?

Excellent instalment in this crime series

I love this series of detective books. Gary Goodhew is different than most of the hard done by cops that we encounter. He really wants to be a detective, has great instincts and a wonderful grandma to boot! These are best if you start with the first book and follow the series as this gives you the whole story of Gary Goodhew. Can't wait for the next instalment.

Quite gripping

Listening to my first Alison Bruce novel was a good experience. However, there were so many characters involved that I lost track of some of them, I think that this might be one occasion that the written word would have suited me better as I could 'flip back' to check.
Having said that I really enjoyed the story, it was a teaser and I was left wondering until the end, I liked the main characters and felt that the personalities were well drawn. This is worth a second listen, and, for me, is a good introduction to Alison Bruce.
The narration was good, and didn't intrude in any way.
