Publisher's Summary

Little Susan Verity went missing during the heat wave of 1976. An unprecedented amount of police resources went into finding her, but to no avail. Until now.

Serial killer Adrian Wicklow was always the prime suspect. He's lied to the police about Susan's whereabouts repeatedly, but this time, he says, he'll tell the truth. Because Wicklow is dying. As the case reopens, DS Ian Bradshaw works with investigative journalists Tom Carney and Helen Norton to find Susan. But this is Wicklow's life's work. Would a killer on death's door give up his last secret so easily?

a captivating read

I was disappointed when this story ended....i felt more should have been written to tie everything up. the ending seemed too abrupt...almost if the author was suddenly sick of writing what otherwise was a captivating story. T

It gets better

Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?

This is the third book by Howard Linskey with the same trio. I found it hard to get into because the character with whom the book starts is thoroughly unlikeable. Once we get into the actual mystery, the story picks up and keeps going. Reader is very good.

Another great story by the author

I throughly enjoyed this new book by Howard Linskey. What's unusual about his narratives is how easy he can weave a few storylines into one. You get a few crime mysteries unfolding at once in his books. Loved it. Narration is fantastic.
