Publisher's Summary

Gunmen are terrorising young women in the Cathedral town of Lafferton. What - if anything - links the apparently random murders? Is the marksman with a rifle the same person as the killer with a handgun? Detective Chief Superintendent Simon Serrailler falls back on well tried police methods such as questioning neighbours and house-to-house searches. Simon has been promoted and is now with the Serious Incident Flying Taskforce, but he is still at heart a loner and these chilly murders are on his home territory.

Really Excellent

This series just gets better and better. Although I am not usually interested in "family drama" novels, these books are so well written that I have become really involved with the characters and the ongoing story of the interwoven families in the book kept me engrossed.
Although it could be read on its own, I would say that the book is best read after the first three. I hope that there will be more, as I am looking forward to finding out what happens next.
My only criticism is that there is one important loose end not tied up (I can't say what it is without revealing the end) but perhaps it will be dealt with in the next story.
Steven Pacey is excellent as the reader - not only fluent and good at accents, but a superb reminder of my favourite childhood television series!

Depressing and disappointiing

Have listened to or read previous 3 books in this series but did not enjoy this one. Odd tangled story. Very depressing. Could not see why emphasis was placed on some minor characters who only have a very tenious link with main plot. Red herrings not good enough. Far too much info about Simon's family, especially about his smug toffee nosed sister Cat, due to events in this book I feel she is going to become even more unbearably smug in later books. Much of the story is actually padding, the real plot could have been written in about twenty pages.

Don't think I will bother with rest of series.
