    Detective Constable Janet Scott is subtle and reliable, a diplomatic thinker with a wry sense of humor. She’s put in the time and seen it all, but has no desire for the boss’s job - she loves her own too much. Rachel Bailey couldn’t be more different - she’s energetic, impulsive, and ambitious, and has just been transferred to the Manchester murder squad.

    Three fascinating women

    I do hope that this is the first in a series! The narration is excellent. Three compelling women are the main characters ... All are very human...th..Show More »

    A blaze at an abandoned chapel in impoverished Manorclough turns out to be more than just arson when the body of a man who has been shot twice is discovered in the ashes. For the Manchester Metropolitan police team it’s the start of a gruelling and complex case that exposes the fractures and fault lines of a community living on the edge. DC Rachel Bailey, recently married, is trying to come to terms with her new status and deal with the fallout from her chaotic family.

    Wonderful listen...

    Yes. The book is well-written, the characters well-drawn and the narration brings it all to life.
