Detective Inspector Denis Hamilton is tasked with apprehending a brutal murderer stalking the streets of London - and leaving not a shred of DNA evidence. As the suspect list mounts, his frustration and pressure from his superiors intensify.
Grace Murphy, who is dealing with the recent loss of her beloved grandfather, falls deeper into despair when her friends' bodies are discovered. Fearing she may be the killer's next target, she begins to question if her horrifying nightmares are the key to unravelling the murderer's identity.
How far would you go to uncover the truth? Would you venture into the shadows to unmask a killer?

One reviewer said “made no sense” and I have to agree. As of page 125 I couldn’t figure out why Grace was even part of this book. Her grief was ridiculous, her grandfather had been sick long enough for her to say goodbye, and she was nothing but a drunk, she guzzled wine like it was simply glasses of water and raised hell with her mother at every turn. Then the wine wasn’t enough so she started guzzling vodka right out of the bottle.
Grace WAS the main female character in this story but I couldn’t stand her. We’ll just call her the lush of the story for lack of anything else. I like a main male and female in a story but not this kind of female. By 65% I found myself skimming just to get away from her.
Ok, I reached the end and I can honestly say "I did not see that coming!" I’ve read other books like that but they were never drunks. It made Grace very unlikable, and hard to feel sorry for her. I have a question that’s really driving me crazy but to ask it would give away the whole story, and there’s no figuring it out on my own. Bummer.
As to the narrator: Craig Beck was good. He did the female voice barely ok but all the males had their own voices so you knew who was talking. I would definitely listen to him again.
This is an amazing book... I wanted to listen over a weeks vacation but I got so hooked that I listened to it all in one day. Well written and very well read by the narrator.
"A gripping story."
I thought the story rocked. So good to listen to. Great end. 5stars. . .
Thoroughly enjoyed listening to this book and can't wait for the next Tara Lyons' book to be released by Audible.
