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.

    "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.

    Story
    "A fast moving tale of murder and control"

    Once again Heck is knee deep in bodies and the very worst kind of criminal deviants. A simmering love interest taunts the reader. Paul Thornley brings this tale to life in his inimitable style making it a can't put down tale. My immediate instinct was to load the next in the series but that would be wrong like fine wine this stuff is to be cherished and reserved for when you have time to enjoy it.

    Story
    "Paul Thornley confuses this series for me..."

    ...he's such an outstanding narrator, you feel you're listening to Stephen Leather but then you realise the book and story is so outlandish it cannot possibly be so. I would hate to think it's possible to live in a world as extreme as Heck and for the reason it's truly unrealistic, I won't be listening to any more. I should say I've listened to the first two...
