Publisher's Summary

A cop killer on the loose in Cardiff - introducing a dark and gritty new voice in crime fiction, perfect for fans of Stuart MacBride and David Mark.

At a squalid flat near the Cardiff docks, an early morning drugs raid goes catastrophically wrong. A plainclothes officer is shot dead at point-blank range; the dealer is left in a coma. The killer, identity unknown, slips away.

Young and inexperienced, Will MacReady starts his first day on the CID. With the city in shock and the entire force reeling, he is desperate to help - but unearths truths that lead the team down an increasingly dark path....

character development

If you could sum up Ash and Bones in three words, what would they be?

Too many notes. There are too many characters and too many twists and too many non-sequiturs, typical of first novels, I've found.

What was the most interesting aspect of this story? The least interesting?

This story is told from the view of a detective constable rather than the DI in charge which is why I will listen to the second in this series.

Which character – as performed by Matt Addis – was your favorite?

Actually, no character was adequately--or believably--developed, so I had no favorite character.

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

No.

Any additional comments?

I will listen to the next book in this series. I hope the author will have found a better editor in the mean time.
