When Karen Drew is found sitting in her wheelchair staring out to sea with her throat cut one chilly morning, DI Annie Cabbot, on loan to Eastern Area, gets lumbered with the case. Back in Eastvale, that same Sunday morning, 19-year-old Hayley Daniels is found raped and strangled in the Maze, a tangle of narrow alleys behind Eastvale's market square, after a drunken night on the town with a group of friends, and DCI Alan Banks is called in. Banks finds suspects galore, while Annie seems to hit a brick wall - until she reaches a breakthrough that spins her case in a shocking and surprising new direction, one that also involves Banks. Then another incident occurs in the Maze which seems to link the two cases in a bizarre and mysterious way.
As Banks and Annie dig into the past to uncover the deeper connections, they find themselves also dealing with the emotional baggage and personal demons of their own relationship. And it soon becomes clear that there are two killers in their midst, and that at any moment either one might strike again.

i don,t know the narrator clips his sentences almost speaking the last word louder than the rest
no this genre is ok it,s the narrator that i won,t get books read by
reading the book without clipping the sentence just keeping it more storylike than possibly trying to hard to make the point of the character
hard to say 5 minutes in i had enough of the reading voice
"A good read ruined."
This is a good book, with strong believable characters and a great storyline. It is ruined by the editing mistakes in the audio recording. Parts of the book and the storyline are missing while other parts are misplaced or repeated. For example chapter 22 and 30 are exactly the same.
The whole thing is a mess. A good read - ruined by sloppy editing work.
One of the best Peter Robinson books I have read or listened too. Excellent and well worth trying even if you don't usually read detective books
"Bring on the next book."
Yet another brilliantly written story. Found it gripping right to the end. Was not in awe of the narrator though.
"Had to give up after first chapter."
Using the same narrator as in the other DC Banks books. Listening to DC Banks with a completely different voice from all the other stories just spoilt it for me!
Of course not. It wasn't the story just the narrator.
Different voice from the other stories with the same detective.
I couldn't continue for reasons given, so NOT the story.
