Publisher's Summary

A protest group hits the headlines when unrest at a women's peace camp explodes into murder. Already on the scene, journalist Lindsay Gordon desperately tries to strike a balance between personal and professional responsibilities. As she peels back the layers of deception surrounding the protest and its opponents, she finds that no one - ratepayer or reporter, policeman or peace woman - seems wholly above suspicion. Then Lindsay uncovers a truth that even she can scarcely believe....

Weak everything

A weak plot with weak characters, weakly read by a poor reader. This is best avoided.

Appalling narration

The worst narration I have ever heard on an audio book. The regional accents were inconsistent and story line poor for Val McDermid... very disappointing all round.. would not recommend..

A good story

Val McDermod is undeniably the queen of crime fiction, her Tony Hill and Carol Jordan series were spectacular, an all time favourite without parallel but there we are talking the mystery, the psychological drama and suspense with the law enforcement and home office resources. To cut to the point, I'm struggling to get the point and role of a journalist in solving murders. It should be left to the professionals. Good enough story though and I'm still a Val McDermid fan.
