Publisher's Summary

When a body is hauled from the River Tyne, Sarah Tucker heads North for a closer look. She identifies the dead woman as private detective Zöe Boehm, but putting a name to the corpse only raises further questions. Did Zöe kill herself, or did one of her old cases come looking for her? And what's brought Sarah's former sparring partner Gerard Inchon to the same broken-down hotel?

From derelict shipyards to its glitzy new quayside, Newcastle shows a different face everywhere Sarah looks. But then so do all the people she encounters, gangster, barman, scientist, cop - Sarah can't trust anyone. Nor can she leave until she's found the answer, however dangerous that discovery might turn out to be...

    "Excellent series"

    Almost didn't read the book after seeing the description/blurb; very glad I did. Best of a great group. That said, I hope there will be more of Zoe & Sarah...if there is a downside to any of these books- & that's a big "if"- it's the lack of a firm resolution. They're not cookie cutter cliffhangers, to be sure, but one is left wanting more. Mark of a good author, actor, showman, magician, etc....well, yes. I do want more. Thank you, Mick Herron.

    "Hard to get into"

    I listened to almost all of the story but could never get into it. Once I stopped listening I had no desire to go back and finish it.

    "Dire narration"
    Would you say that listening to this book was time well-spent? Why or why not?

    No, the narration was distractly poor. I struggled to get to the end.


    What did you like best about this story?

    The interesting plot


    Who might you have cast as narrator instead of Anna Bentinck?

    Sean Barrett


    Did Smoke and Whispers inspire you to do anything?

    Avoid this narrator in future
