Publisher's Summary

Detective Constable Evan Evans and his new bride, Bronwen, are settling into married life in their little cottage above the village of Llanfair when they meet the daughter of one of the village's newest families, a 16-year-old Pakistani girl named Jamila. Bronwen and Jamila are becoming good friends when Jamila finds out from her parents that they have arranged a marriage for her back in Pakistan. Evans tries to convince her family not to enforce the custom, arguing that Jamila is a normal Welsh teenager, but just as the tensions increase, the girl suddenly vanishes. Bronwen is distraught, but there's no trace of her.

At work, Evans is investigating the murder of a man shot to death through the open window of his home while eating breakfast. After the man's wife is jailed as a suspect, a second man is killed - and then a third - and Evans and his team are on the hunt for a serial killer. But they can't seem to find any connections between the three men....

In the surprising climax of Edgar Award finalist Rhys Bowen's 10th Constable Evans mystery, Evans risks everything to solve the murders and discover what happened to Jamila. All in all, the novel is a triumph for fans of Bowen's acclaimed Evans series and a wonderful discovery for new listeners.

Wonderful as usual!!!

I just LOVE Constable Evans. Or should I say Detective Constable? I only wish there were a lot more of this series.

Weird Politics

The politics of this book troubled me. I usually find Rhys Bowen's books to be a pleasant diversion, but I really struggled with the tired, vaguely racist trope of the angry Muslim man. The portrayal wasn't nuanced at all.

Really racist

I’m surprised a publisher opted to make an audiobook of this in 2020. It’s quite troubling.

Should’ve stopped at 9

I just binge-listened to the entire series over the course of a handful of days and this book is awful and tarnishes the entire series simply bc it’s the last book and definitely the most memorable. It’s a Heinz 57 of delicate, social trigger-topics addressed as insensitively as possible. The extreme racial stereotyping is the worst and is absolutely inexcusable. And, just when you think it can’t possibly get more offensive, it does.

I know you’ll still listen to the book after reading this bc it’s impossible to believe that this could be true after having listened to 9 fun books, and I can’t fault you for that - if I were you, I probably wouldn’t believe me, either, since it’s such a drastic departure from the tone & content of the previous books in the series. Just remember that I told you so!

Love this series

Here’s to Rhys Bowen for her characters and her sense of humor. Here’s to Roger Clark for bringing it all to life. He’s a master at Welch pronunciation and making it clear, without changing his tone, as to who is talking. I hope we haven’t heard the last of Constable Evans and his adventures in a small town where big things happen.

Probably my least favorite in the series

Good story overall, I just found Bronwyn extremely irritating. Her portrayal caused the low stars.

The Last One?!! Oh no!!

Sure enough, I have reached the end of the last book in the series. Always a sad event, I'm thinking I might re-listen to them all over again!

Another great story about Evan but it ended with an air that said 'we'll be back', rather than a reassuring 'they all lived happily ever after'. So I'm living in hope....
