Publisher's Summary

A vicious serial killer is holding the country to ransom, publicly - and gruesomely - murdering his victims. When a man is burnt alive on a bonfire, it seems like a tragic Guy Fawkes Night accident. But with the discovery of a young couple on Valentine’s Day - each with an arrow through the heart - something more sinister becomes clear. A "calendar killer" is on the loose.

Detective Mark "Heck" Heckenburg is up against it. With a rising body count and the public’s eyes on him, Heck must find the killer before he executes more victims. Because this killer has a plan. And nothing will stop him completing it.

A heart-stopping and grisly thriller that will enthral fans of Stuart MacBride and Katia Lief.

    Believable, narration as always made this book again - Paul Thornley

    The number of characters, how it switched and of course Heck is a really mans man

    He is by far the best Narrator out their! got to a point now however where I wont listen to anyone else.... Not sure if that's good or a bad thing?

    "Too contrived"

    This book would have been way better if the author hadn't felt it necessary to treat his listeners like fools. For example , after describing someone like a deep pool it really is unnecessary to go in and explain what that means. This type of thing happens throughout the book. The author also overused the word 'again' throughout the book. This is the second that I've listened to in the series and I won't be listening to any more.

    "Great Book"

    Another great Heck book - though I am beginning to suspect they are rather formulaic. I love Paul Thrornley as a reader but now have heard so many books read by him I am beginning to wonder which book I am listening too as he sounds the same for every main character.

    Where does Sacrifice rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?

    In the top list of thrillers. I am so happy that there are more of Heck!


    What was one of the most memorable moments of Sacrifice?

    When the tables were turned on the evil school therapist.


    What does Paul Thornley bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you had only read the book?

    I love his accent!


    Did you have an emotional reaction to this book? Did it make you laugh or cry?

    No it's not one of those books. It's the audio equivalent of 'unputdownable'!


    Any additional comments?

    I love the good characters and the evilness of the bad characters is really interesting. Very good entertainment!

    "Great Story which was very well read!!"

    I am becoming a real Paul Finch Fan. Book 2 was so well written and read that I am itching for my new credits to come through so that I may continue the adventures of Mark Heckenburg, especially and with Paul Thornley as the reader. This one comes highly recommended from me and was a little less predictable (for me at least) than Book 1 (Stalkers). Book 3 is called The Killing Club and will be moving from "Wish List" to "My Basket"

    Phil Thornley gives a brilliant performance as usual, in this gruesome thriller. The pace is fast, descriptions detailed yet not boringly so, and storyline well structured

    "A good story with many twists and turns. "

    Loved the story. There were many twists and turns throughout but I was engaged throughout
    Heck's character is developing further as more of his history with Jemma is revealed.
