When a man fails in his attempt to murder his wife and then commit suicide, DC Maggie Neville is assigned to be the surviving woman's Family Liaison Officer.
As the husband lies in a coma in hospital, the wife sets about making sure everyone knows he's guilty. But there's something about her story that doesn't ring true to Maggie.
Digging deeper, she finds an unexpected link between the couple's case and a series of burglaries she and her colleagues are investigating in the local area - and the mysterious disappearance of a young woman 20 years ago.

This was a bit of a slow burner, but does quickly pick up the pace. This is the second book with DC Maggie Neville, and the characters certainly develop and evolve. The story itself was good, and I didn't guess the ending. Buy this one if you like seeing books from a police perspective and if you like seeing a story from different points of view. Overall very enjoyable and was sorry it finished.

Great story, beautifully read
I really enjoyed this book and found myself rewinding quite a lot so as not to miss any detail.
I am usually wary of thrillers as I can't cope with anything too grisly, but although this did contain some gruesome elements, the story was so intriguing that it kept me listening. The characters are very well drawn and believable, and the narrator brings them out beautifully, using accents and individual voices without ever overdoing them.
I can't wait to listen to the author's first book, and I really hope she brings us more of DC Maggie Neville soon.
