Publisher's Summary

There's the lost. There's the missing. And there's the taken.

She asked me once if we had any secrets, and I shook my head.
'No secrets between us', she said.
'No' I answered. 'Never ever.'

In a Durham hotel at dawn, celebrated preacher Tristan Snow is murdered as he prays. None of the other guests - not even his daughter, his wife, or her sister - saw or heard anything. But then again, they each had a motive for murder.

Detective Inspector Erica Martin is confronted by secrets and lies, lost in a case where nothing is what it seems. With no answers, DI Martin is consumed by questions: is anyone in this family innocent? When the victim might have been a monster, is there such a thing as justice? And does anyone deserve to die?

Not as great as first book but ok

Overall, I think this is good but the story line was too unpleasant for me. As a matter of personal preference, I dislike pastor/church/religious crime stories because it is not my kind of plot. The story moves a bit slow and characters are devious and ugly. The air throughout the story is heavy and stiffling. Alice Clark-Platts is a great author and her writing is excellent, the pace of her stories is well executed. I love the main characters in the series.

I found the English accent a bit distracting

but the reader had an amazing range in voice chacter and range it was very covincing. There is much datail given to describe body language of the characters, as well. If you are a visual person this will give much insight into who dunit.

Gripping thriller!

A gripping thriller that is well constructed and delves into the underbelly of a range of interesting and disturbing topics. Full of twists and turns the story is intriguing and the characters engrossing. Enjoyable to listen to - can't wait for the next DI Erica Martin book!!
