Publisher's summary

A killer running rings around the police. A detective spiralling out of control.

DI Kate Young is on leave. She’s the force’s best detective, but her bosses know she’s under pressure, on medication and overcoming trauma. So after her bad judgement call leads to a narrowly averted public disaster, they’re sure all she needs is a rest.

But when Staffordshire Police summon her back to work on a murder case, it’s a harder, more suspicious Kate Young who returns. With a new ruthlessness, she sets about tracking down a clinical, calculating serial killer who is torturing victims and leaving clues to taunt the police. Spurred on by her reporter husband, Young begins to suspect that the murderer might be closer than she ever imagined.

As she works to uncover the truth, Young unravels a network of secrets and lies, with even those closest to her having something to hide. But with her own competence—and her grip on reality—called into question, can she unmask the killer before they strike again?

Nope

Couldn't get to chapter 2. Narrator just spoiled it for me. Can't comment on the story.

Not this narrator

I really wanted to listen to this, but I knew as soon as I heard this narrator that I couldn’t. I recognized her voice from another story I had to stop. Her narration of non-dialogue passages is too much for me. It’s clipped and overly-anxious and a smidge too loud — I assume to convey the anxiety. Yes, it’s a crime novel, but 8 hours of anxious descriptive passages is too much. She’s just one of those voices that doesn’t work for me.

Looking Forward to more Kate Young.

Fortunately I purchased both the ebook and audiobook of this title. The story is compelling with many twists and turns. There are also a few surprises that will keep you guessing to the end. Carol Wyer wrote a great story and I'm anticipating more great mysteries in this Kate Young series. My only problem was with the audiobook. The narration was not good. The narrator read this story in clipped, choppy sentences and in a pitch that was grating. I don't know what went wrong, but this made it extremely difficult to listen to. I finally finished the story with the ebook only.

Narrator's voice made it unbearable.

20 mins in and I was in pain, narrator's voice is tinny and nasal. I think I'll read the book for myself.

The reader is terrible!

The reader has a horribly strident voice and speaks much too fast. She completely ruins the dialogue. She speaks as if everyone is in permanent conflict, and also as if she can’t wait to finish narrating the book. Her harsh and strident tone spoils the reader’s experience.

Good Story, Shame About the Narration.

A good story , well written though a bit predictable. Based in an area I used to live in and I enjoyed the places in the book bringing back memories. However the narration grated terribly and lacked any depth of feeling. I agree that there were a number of different voices used but the main character's voice was consistently inflexible and staccato. even when soothing witnesses and or suspects. Nowhere was there even a hint of a regional accent.
I would like to read book 2 but this will be a purchase that II will read myself rather than purchase through Audible.

Not a fan of the narrator.

Decent story and I liked the main character but the narrator sounded histrionic and her voice was piercing at times. I’m not sure if I will listen to the next in the series if it is the same narrator.

Pushed through the horrible narrator

In spite of the pain from the shrill, nasal and often frantic narration, I held the course because the story began to interest me. Glad I did, but really will never be able to listen to this narrator again. It hurt my head too much. The story though kept me, with sufficient twists and surprises, and some interesting characters. But I solved it too soon. At least, I solved the "who" too soon, if not the "why."
