Publisher's Summary

Two female paramedics murdered in a month. Is it coincidence, or are they victims of a serial killer? Detective Ella Marconi isn't sure, but goes hard after her key suspects, including police officer John Morris. But each turn of the case throws up more questions and entanglements, and Ella and her partner, Detective Murray Shakespeare, struggle to find the truth among the lies. Ella also attempts to balance work and her relationship with Dr. Callum McLennan, which is both growing both stronger and more difficult as they face Callum's mother's disapproval and the anniversary of his cousin's murder. Meanwhile, Carly Martens, paramedic and close friend of the second victim, conducts her own investigation. She's certain that her fellow paramedic Tessa Kimball is hiding something, and her refusal to let it go puts her, Tessa, and even Ella into more danger than Carly could ever imagine.

Detective Ella Marconi returns in this thrilling case, set against the dangerous background of drug deals, police corruption, and deadly consequences.

    "Un-Put-Downable"

    Need a way to escape the horrors of the 2017 daily national news cycle? Look no further than the Ella Marconi detective series, which expertly combines great writing, realistic characters and situations, and edge-of-your-seat suspense. I especially love the way the author, who draws heavily on her own experience as a paramedic in Australia, draws you in immediately to the mystery within the very first chapter, and often the first few pages. There are a LOT of books I start listening to and then discard, bored after two or three (or even five or seven) chapters. Any Katherine Howell novel is a GUARANTEED finish. I’m binge-listening to the entire series now, and there’s not a dud in the lot. I guess my only criticism would be that there are A LOT of characters, and if you’re not paying attention, you may miss important clues as to the identity of the killer.

    The narration, by Caroline Lee (who also narrated Big Little Lies and The Secret Keeper) is fabulous, as always. Grade: A
