It’s the case that could make DS Alex Morrow’s career. A suburban home invaded in the dead of night and a vulnerable old man taken hostage. It’s a black and white case and it shouldn’t be hard to solve….
The two strangers who forced their way into the house demanded millions the family didn’t have and shouted for a man nobody had heard of. It had to be a mistake, and a bad one at that. But Alex Morrow can’t be depended on and the bosses know it. Working this case is tearing her apart and as it unravels, Morrow finds that the only people she can bear to see are the very ones she’s been running from for 20 years.

"Nearly gave up because of the bad naration"
Better male voices. Almost caricatured male voices. I thought they were being played for a laugh initially. Quite spoilt what was a very good plot.
Would not buy any books with this narrator again.
"Very good thriller."
Really enjoyable listen. Excellent narration. I did think the ending was a bit unlikely though!
Denise Mina's quality writing is brought to life by the reader in different character styles and with a spattering of humour. The reader seems to have coped well with many different voices and dialects. An enjoyable listen.
A good book spoiled by the narrator. When reading a male voice she decends into a Chic Murray parody. It shows how critical it is to have a good reader.
