Shades of Death

Deep in a Derbyshire cave, the skeleton of an 11-year-old girl has lain undisturbed for 18 years. Its discovery brings to light the half-forgotten and horrifying rituals performed by a group of children in their chilling 'Egyptian game'. But the game is by no means over. Technology adds a new dimension to the sinister manipulation practiced by the group's former leader, and a primitive fear returns to haunt his former acolytes.

    "Brit crime"

    Good plot (ritual sacrifice, a maniplative, damaged child and skeletal remains found in a cave) that moved fast enough to hold my interest. Main characters fleshed out and believable. Secondary characters a bit so so, but that didn't spoil it for me. Location was important to plot and to the probablility of the plot in that this could only have happened in a small rural community at a time before every citizen had a national identity number. Narrated intelligently. A very good listen.

    "Twisty (or twisted?)"

    I really enjoyed this book which had all sorts of things going on involving murder, weirdos in caves and I.T genius. Well told and if it was on paper, it would have been a great page turner. I couln't wait to find out what happened but when I finished, I wanted more!

    "a page turner."

    i bought it because this narrator guy is brilliant and really brings the book to life for me - sometimes i find it hard to stay with a book on my long drives. fortunately for me in this case, the author is also brilliant. i'm half way through and dying to know what happens in the end.

    "very enjoyable"

    Couldn't put this one down. Gripping plot, great characters and for once I didn't work out 'who done it' Narration excellent. Highly recommended.
