Publisher's Summary

Your new addiction starts here: get hooked on the number one best-selling series. Perfect for fans of Karin Slaughter and M. J. Arlidge.

There's no easy way to die....

Unknown to DI Luc Callanach and the newly promoted DCI Ava Turner, a serial killer has Edinburgh firmly in his grip. The killer is taking his victims in the coldest, most calculating way possible - engineering slow and painful deaths by poison, with his victims entirely unaware of the drugs flooding their bloodstream until it's too late.

But how do you catch a killer who hides in the shadows? A killer whose pleasure comes from watching pain from afar? Faced with their most difficult case yet, Callanach and Turner soon realise they face a seemingly impossible task....

Critic Reviews

"Read it in two sittings. I literally had no choice. A fast and enthralling thriller, pitting a new, very human hero against one of the scariest psychos I've yet encountered in crime fiction." ( Sunday Times best seller Paul Finch)
"Without doubt, this is one of the best first detective series I have read." ( Woman's Way Magazine)
"Genuinely chilling." ( Saga Magazine)

PERFECT ENTERTAINMENT!

Part three- and just as thrilling as the first two! Love the complex characters, the burgeoning relationships and strong story lines. Just enough gore but not overly horrific, the storyline shines through. Roll on the fourth!!!

Another great book!

Really loved this book and looking forward to starting the next. Liked the narrater too, and I'm a bit fussy who reads the book so this is a really good point for me.

Another Great Read !!

What a great series, that was the third book in the lives of Ava Turner and the rest of her colleagues. The story was gripping and the narration is spot on.
I am going to get the fourth one now , brilliant!

Definitely the best one yet

I'm thoroughly enjoying these, so much more since the narrator was changed after the first book.
I loved this one, best yet, really good character development, really glad to see the journalist back again too.
Will be downloading book 4 when I've submitted this.

OK

I am a sci fi and fantasy fan but decided to try this in a 2 for 1 deal as I also enjoy the occasional murder mystery. It was ok and entertained me through a few bouts of housework. Rather too many lucky clues and lucky escapes for the main characters for my liking but the murder part of the story was sufficiently unusual to keep my attention most of the time and the narration was competent. The culprit was identified well before the end of the book - so no mystery as far as that was concerned and no final twist - but the motive for the murders came much later. A couple of unconnected side story added some complexity to the story. Overall an enjoyable listen and better than many detective novels I have read but not one of the greats in my view. Nevertheless I have given 4 stars since I have made much worse choices when I have been tempted to take a chance on the 2 for 1 sele tion deaks.

Another brilliant book

This is the third book in the Inspector Callanach stories and doesn’t disappoint... it wasn’t quite as exiting or nail bitingly tense as the two previous books but it was still a brilliant listen. I feel like I know the characters and I am drawn into their world and care about what happens to them. I am going to download the fourth book after writing this review, and I feel sad that I am coming to the end of the series of books so far. I just hope Helen Fields keep writing as I want to know what happens to the characters and if they have the happy ending that I think we all are hoping for..! Highly recommend this book.

Wow!

I have never read or listened to any work by this author before! I just loved it! Only trouble is I’m going to have to go backwards in this series now but I’m not stopping! Love it!
