Publisher's Summary

Dawn Prentice was already known to the Peterborough Hate Crimes Unit.

The previous summer she had logged a number of calls detailing the harassment she and her severely disabled teenage daughter were undergoing. Now she is dead - stabbed to death whilst Holly Prentice has been left to starve upstairs. DS Ferreira, only recently back serving on the force after being severely injured in the line of duty, had met with Dawn that summer. Was she negligent in not taking Dawn's accusations more seriously? Did the murderer even know that Holly was helpless upstairs while her mother bled to death?

Whilst Ferreira battles her demons, determined to prove she's up to the front line, DI Zigic is drawn into conflict with an official seemingly resolved to hide the truth about one of his main suspects. Can either officer unpick the truth about mother and daughter and bring their killer to justice?

Good enough

Quite enjoyed the premise of this one but a Polish Policeman with a broad Fenland accent - nah! At least the narrator did have a good go at distinguishing the characters but I think a middle English rather than a variable Fenland would have been a better option for the main player.

Really captivating story

Story kept u guessing about who-done-it right up till last minute!
So much so I was up till gone 3am one Saturday night or rather Sunday morning as I just HAD to know b4 I could sleep.
Enjoyed it sooo much I'm pleased author AND narrator did another 2!
All though it took me a few chapters to "like" the narrator but after finishing all 3, I'd do a search just for him.
