A fresh start in a place you hate. Even tougher with a killer watching....
Jane Osborne left Cambridge and vowed she'd never return. An unexpected twist of fortune results in DC Goodhew bringing her back to the remnants of her old life and a confrontation with the man who killed her sister.
Meanwhile a burning car on the outskirts of Cambridge leads to the discovery of the body of its owner, Paul Marshall. There seems nothing to connect it to either a recent assault, or to Jane Osborne, until a shocking discovery rips Goodhew's investigation apart.
Alison Bruce was born in Surrey in 1966 and moved to Cambridge in 1998. She has learnt about Cambridge and East Anglia from researching her two previous non-fiction books, Cambridgeshire Murders (Sutton Publishing) and The Billingtons, Death in the Family (also published by Sutton). She is married with two small children and enjoys horse riding and dancing, when not working on her new crime fiction series featuring DC Gary Goodhew.
The DC Goodhew series is set in Cambridge and follows the travails of somewhat unorthodox DC Gary Goodhew. Dedicated detective and insomniac Goodhew has two new cases to resolve whilst trying to stay on the good side of his DI. These books are thoroughly enjoyable, DC Goodhew himself is a very likeable chap and a decent one (unlike his professional rival DC Kincaid). Continuing threads from previous books make it worth reading them in order and enjoying the growing persona of Gary. Well narrated. In this particular book, there were some mistakes in the narration which had not been edited out and whilst no big problem does momentarily break the spell. Highly recommended for lovers of this genre and eagerly await book 6.

Story was ok but the editing of the recording was shocking. So many times the editor missed the narrator restarting a sentence, it was almost embarrassing. Not the best narrator as all the characters sound the same but I have gotten used to him as I have listened to the whole series so far
