    As dusk approaches a small Dublin suburb in the summer of 1984, mothers begin to call their children home. But on this warm evening, three children do not return from the dark and silent woods. When the police arrive, they find only one of the children, unable to recall a single detail of the previous hours.

    Twenty years later, the found boy, Rob Ryan, is a detective on the Dublin Murder Squad and keeps his past a secret. But when a 12-year-old girl is found murdered in the same woods, he and Detective Cassie Maddox find themselves investigating a case chillingly similar to the previous unsolved mystery.

    Barbara says: "A near-flawless audiobook (but for one thing...)"
    "great story, OK narrator"
    Overall

    The story really gripped me, and, as I listened through, I found myself doing housework with the ipod on, taking the long way home to listen a while longer etc. I don't mind the ambiguous ending - it's what I've come to expect in modern writing (and TV!). What irked me was the narrators unfamilarity with Irish colloquialisms (the use of the word "sure" and "yer man", etc.) and Irish place names, which were often mispronounced. Hearing placenames familiar to me prounced so oddly took me right out of the story...
