Publisher's Summary

DI Kate Burrows thought she'd never face a killer like the Grantley Ripper again. But she was wrong. One by one, children are being abandoned. Thankfully, they're rescued from harm. Then one victim is not so lucky, and Kate knows she's in a race against time to save lives. Kate's finding the case tough and she needs the support of her lover, Patrick Kelly, more than ever. But Patrick's got his own problems.

A dead body's turned up in his Soho club and, although he insists he's been set-up, Kate begins to doubt him. It's not the first time Patrick's reputation has compromised her position. But now there's a maniac to catch and Kate can't let anyone - not even Patrick - get in her way.

A gripping story. Hard to stop listening

What did you love best about Broken?

Very clever story, takes the listener through to a completely different ending than expected.

Who was your favorite character and why?

The lead male, though his name escapes me. Because he was not as hardened as he pretended to be to his peers.

Have you listened to any of Annie Aldington’s other performances before? How does this one compare?

No

Was there a moment in the book that particularly moved you?

When the daughter was kidnapped.

Yes

Did you have an emotional reaction to this book? Did it make you laugh or cry?

Yes, it was very disturbing especially when I work with small children.

Gripped me although I had previously read the book.

Not bad

Not bad but would have been much better if not for the picking apart and rehashing of the Kate and Patrick relationship. Very repetitive.

The rest of the book was enjoyable.

Another fantastic Martina Cole book

Would you consider the audio edition of Broken to be better than the print version?

Reading a book and listening to a book are to different experience but both great
