Publisher's Summary

Who are the Special Girls? Are they victims or 'asking for it'? A case of historical child sex abuse by a famous doctor is linked to the murder of his young and popular colleague at a summer camp deep in the Essex woods.
A young psychiatric registrar is found beaten to death in the woods close to a summer camp for young patients suffering from eating disorders. It is run by the charismatic, world-renowned Professor Ned Chesham. DI Grace Fisher investigates, but it is not long before she is pulled from the case - to head up a Metropolitan Police review into a cold case involving Chesham himself.
Nearly 20 years ago, one of Chesham's patients made allegations that he sexually assaulted her. The investigation at the time found no conclusive proof, but Grace soon discovers another victim and a witness whose account never reached the police. Does this mean the original investigation was bungled? Scotland Yard would certainly like her to conclude otherwise. As Grace uncovers the lies that led to the young doctor's murder, she discovers the full extent of the damage done to Chesham's 'special girls' - and the danger they are still in.

Best so far...

I really enjoyed previous Grace Fisher encounters and this was the best yet, her character is really developing and I can imagine where future books will take her; combined with the intriguing relationship with Evo a very insightful storyline and eloquent narration, it's an all round great choice.

Another great listen

In Melody Grove, Isabelle Grey's heroine Grace Fisher has found the perfect narrator. I enjoyed this story as much as the previous two in this series. Ms Grey is excellent at writing about the difference between a working officer who is concerned to do the right thing by the victims of some horrible crimes, in this story child abuse, and the senior officers who are more concerned with their careers. A thought provoking and absorbing story
