The Sunday Times best seller returns with his next unforgettable crime thriller. Fans of MJ Arlidge and Stuart MacBride won't be able to stop listening to this.
John Sagan is a forgettable man. You could pass him in the street and not realise he's there. But then, that's why he's so dangerous.
A torturer for hire, Sagan has terrorised - and mutilated - countless victims. And now he's on the move. DS Mark 'Heck' Heckenburg must chase the trail, even when it leads him to his hometown of Bradburn - a place he never thought he'd set foot in again.
But Sagan isn't the only problem. Bradburn is being terrorised by a lone killer who burns his victims to death. And with the victims chosen at random, no one knows who will be next. Least of all Heck...

"Edge-of-the-seat reading.... Heck is formidable - a British Alex Cross." (The Sun)
"Wonderfully dark and peppered with grim humour. Finch is a born storyteller and writes with the authentic voice of the ex-copper he is." (Peter Finch)
"An ingenious and original plot. Compulsive reading." (Rachel Abbott)
"A deliciously twisted and fiendish set of murders and a great pairing of detectives." (Stav Sherez)
"Avon's big star...part edge-of-the-seat, part hide-behind-the-sofa! An excellent series." (The Bookseller)

Best of the series so far....I love the simmering romance
Between Heck and his boss Gemma....Hope they get back
Together in the next book......loved it.....
I was surprised at how clichéd and dated this book sounded, perhaps it might have been better if read in book format - but I doubt it, The narration was awful, especially the female voices and regional accents - so basically all the different voices. I'm sad to have wasted my monthly credit on this audio book. I found myself hoping that Heck would get killed in a particularly ghastly manner so that should give you an idea of how annoying the main character is. Sadly I can't find one good thing to say about this book
"A bit slow"
A bit slow to start with but it got there in the end, hope the next one is a bit more gritty.
"what the heck!"
Ive enjoyed this series so far, until this one. someone who doesnt want a crime thriller main character to be at all realistic will probably love it
the main character has veered from the sublime to the ridiculous in this book, some of the scenes particularly towards the end were so unbelievable they were daft; some of the lines Heck comes out with either me cringe or laugh out loud.
I love this narrator
police crime thrillers can still be interesting and thrilling without being so over the top and so 'one man army' arrogant
5 stars again for DS Heckingburg!
Brilliant story read brilliantly by the amazing Paul Thornley
Don't miss it
