Seven years ago Martin Chadwick set fire to a Manchester pub, not knowing a teenager was sleeping inside. Chadwick's release from prison is imminent, with journalists gearing up for a good old-fashioned media lynching.
With the victim's father telling the papers he is out for revenge, DS Jessica Daniel is left to keep an eye on Chadwick and his fiery 18-year-old son.
If that's not enough to keep her occupied, a private investigator is doing a fine job sticking his oar in. It also looks like there's a schoolgirl suicide ring in operation and the endless rain continues to pound her northern home.
Jessica's personal and professional life is in the balance - giving her barely enough time to focus on the person in her midst seemingly intent on burning everything to the ground.

I don't know what else to say but that this book was utterly devoid of action or clever clues that lead you astray so that you can be surprised when you finally learn whodunnit. You just don't care whodunnit.
i wish I could get my credit back.
Someone who gives you some indication when there is a change of speaker in a dialogue between characters. I kept getting confused.
Um, just the stuff between the front and back covers.
Save your money.
"Great series of books"
I bought the third book in a promotion as a tester and actually was surprised that I really enjoyed it. I wasn't sure at first but like the female aspect of the lead character and went on to buy the other 4 in the series. As usual for me I started these out of order with book 3 first but going back and starting at the beginning and reading the set meant I got to learn the history behind the characters.
Great books, couldn't make myself stop listening at points and enjoyed them all.
