Publisher's Summary

Bodies are being exhumed at King's Lynn's cemetery, the bones moved to higher ground to avoid flooding. But when the coffin of murdered pub landlady Nora Tilden is hauled up into the light there's a grim discovery: the twisted corpse of a young black man, dumped in the grave on the night Nora was buried. Who was this young man? Was he the victim of a racist crime?

When DI Peter Shaw, DS George Valentine and their team are put on the case their investigation first leads them to The Flask, Nora's pub, where it's soon clear no one can be trusted. Will Shaw and Valentine be able to get to the truth behind the murder before it’s too late?

Clever story

Upon finishing I discovered this was book 3 in a series of 5. Why publishers need to keep this a secret from readers is one of my biggest bugbears. Every book that's part of a series should be clearly marked as such, this book should be entitled Death Toll, book 3 of 5. Listening to the story was great, it was clever with lots of twists and turns, plenty of credible suspects and enough red herrings to keep an Arsenal supporting Scandinavian happy for months. However, the whole way through I felt there was something, a little thing that I kept missing. Like I'd done a 1,000 piece puzzle and found 1 piece missing. Of course, now I know why, because this is part of a series and, although reads perfectly well as a standalone, if you read the previous 2 in the series first, you'll have a deeper and clearer picture. Well narrated by Roger May, there were periods when the narration was very quiet. A great story though.
