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 (his partner and closest friend) find themselves investigating a case chillingly similar to the previous unsolved mystery. Now, with only snippets of long-buried memories to guide him, Ryan has the chance to uncover both the mystery of the case before him and that of his own shadowy past.

I drive a truck so I listen to a lot of books.
Steven Crossley was the only highlight of this audible book.
Not a chance, the summary was misleading, the main character was about as exciting as oatmeal
Mark, at least he cursed with some sort of conviction. O' Kelly was not that bad, and I could always tell when a woman was speaking. The performance was the best part.
The narrator was excellent. I will look for more Steven Crossley readings
The summary of this book is misleading, be ready for a truly boring detective story, at 3 different times I actually stopped listening and purchased other Audible tittles. I expected so much more from the summary.
Most books are predictable but this one was not. Great ending
Yes he does. He does this by leading you on but not quite giving you all the answers until the end
It keeps the listener interested but later, the main character frustrates you! I am impatient about stupidity. It was necessary for the story but frustrates just the same.
The actual country side of a country I have never visited.
No. You need breaks.
Good story with double mystery
I enjoy a good mystery. This fit the bill
Good character development of main characters and well read
Changed the ending
Okay spoiler alert!but the book never resolves or gives answer to the original premise which is what caught my attention in the first place. You finish never knowing the answer to the whole mystery that starts the book.
A love story gone wrong and a mystery to solve, an older mystery that never gets solved
Capturing the perp
I have subsequently listened to all of the series. TF does a great job making you want to punch the "protagonist" in the throat.
About half way through the story development turned sour all the way through to the ending which was also sour.
The lack of resolution of issues that were the some of the main hooks in the story line.
Someone who was capable of delivering both an English and Irish accent.
An interesting start (plot, story line). She seemed to loose herself along the way.
The book may be good but the narrator was very hard to understand! I listened for a while hoping it would get better but it did not!! : (
Perhaps. The book was well-written and I have no complaints about the narration.
The book just seemed to get away from the author. There was a lot of lead up and suspense built, but the end just kind of fizzled out in a way that was both unexpected and depressingly realistic.
Deep. Strong. Soothing.
