Publisher's Summary

Young girls are disappearing around the country, and there is nothing to connect them to one another. Dr Tony Hill sets his team an exercise: they are given the details and asked to discover links between the cases. Only one officer comes up with a theory that is ridiculed...until one of their own is murdered.
For Tony Hill the murder becomes a matter for personal revenge, and, joined by colleague Carol Jordan, he embarks on a game where hunter and hunted can all too easily be reversed.

Wire in the Blood

Gripping novel. Impossible to stop listening. I've been an audible member for years and this is in the top five of my audible downloads. Thankfully, with my iPhone and headphones I can still listen while working at mind-numbing chores around the house or listen while driving so little things like paid work and sleep don't slow me down too much!

problems

A compelling page turner, masterful in its use of language. But there is a logical flaw in one key aspect of the plot which I can't mention here in case of spoilers.

Usually Saul Reichlin is an excellent narrator, well paced yet urgent when required. At home in the RP world of the usual thriller, he is adrift in the sea of regional accents required in this case which is a shame.
