Publisher's Summary

The body of a young City lawyer is discovered on an East London building site, assaulted and brutally murdered. Initial enquiries lead DI Simon Fenchurch to a driver employed by Travis, a controversial new app-based cab company. Within days another woman - a Travis driver - is found murdered.

As the body count goes up, DI Fenchurch and his colleagues on the East London Major Investigation Team delve into the crimes and unveil a murky conspiracy that some will do anything to keep hidden.

When familiar faces begin to emerge from the shadows, Fenchurch realizes this case is more personal than he'd thought. Could he finally be on the brink of solving the mystery that has dogged him for over a decade: who abducted his daughter, Chloe - and where is she now?

Good story but get another narrator

This is not the story for you if you have a problem with the term "christ" being used as sign of irritation (e.g., christ on a cracker, christ in a Volvo). The story is good though lengthy. But as you near the pinnacle, about 2-4 hours until the end, you understand that it was all worth it. And the last 5 minutes of the story (which you must get to by listening to the tale in its entirety) really brings it all home, removing any feeling of wasted time.
I didn't read the previous books in this series, but I didn't find it hard to follow. It delivered in the end. All the pieces lined up well with no manufactured coincidences, though good luck didn't hurt. But life is often like that.
I didn't think there would be a continuation, but I could be wrong. Either way, there is a full ending to this tale. I didn't finish it with more questions.

A lot of twists in this story

This was an amazing story, with a lot of twists. I didn’t guess the ending which makes it very satisfying.

Really bad narration

Story was very good but was really hard to follow with the harsh, rasping narrator. A real chore for me to listen.

Wow!

Wow! This was intense.

This series has really drawn me in. This book's subject matter is very painful at times. Hard on Simon and Abby, too.

Simon's tendency to jump in without proper backup sometimes makes me crazy. I also think he needs to "be there" for Abby more.

This book made it tough to know who can be trusted. It was truly intense. I cannot wait for the next book - in a year!

Awful narration!

I have no idea what this book is about as I cannot concentrate due to the narration which is one of the worst I have come across.The narrator has no idea how to put a book across and make you want to listen, he obviously thinks He's in panto, his accent in parts reminded me of old mother Riley! S.O.C.O ( scene of crime officers) is pronounced socko, not so co! Avoid this book if you enjoy the audible version, will definitely not buy another book if old mother Riley is in the chair, terrible and sorry I wasted my money

frustrating

loved the story but found the policing very frustrating. every time the police chased a suspect they lost them and each time they tried to apprehend someone the villain got the better of them

First audio book

Loved being able to choose whether to read or listen depending on what I was doing. Love Ed James' books and this gives an added dimension.

Awful Narration & Repetitive Story

Firstly, the narration. It is truly awful. Bizarrely pronounced words, pantomime voices and the intonation of the reading was just wrong. It really did spoil the book. As for the story, and it pains me to say this as I have really enjoyed Ed James' Cullen series, this was also rather disappointing. I understand that there is a formula that needs to be followed for crime thrillers but the story here was both predictable and unbelievable at the same time. Possibly as a result of the bizarre narration, it is hard to empathise with Fenchurch and the number of times the police are incompetent or he is allowed to break the rules is irritatingly repetitive. There are much better crime thrillers out there.

Narrator!

I only got to chapter 4 in this book, no idea if the story is any good or not, I couldn't take any more of the narration. SOCO is not pronounced sooo-coooo and baton is pronounced as though the story os set in America. He drove me nuts and ruined what could have been a good story. No more Ed James for me.
