Publisher's Summary

It is 1932, and John Madden, former Scotland Yard inspector, is now a farmer in the peaceful Surrey countryside. However, his peace is shattered when he discovers the disfigured body of a young girl hidden in a wood and is convinced the killer has struck before.…

When a second body is found, Madden knows there is a multiple killer at large. Allying himself with his old colleagues, and against the wishes of his anxious wife, he immerses himself in one more case. But he will have to stay one step ahead of a killer who has been covering his tracks for many years. And soon significant links are discovered in Germany, where the Nazis are on the brink of power….

Great follow up to River of darkness.

Can't wait until the next two in series are available on audible.
Great great characters.

Disappointing.

I have listened to books by this author before & thoroughly enjoyed them, but this one was like wading through treacle. Took me ages to actually get into it due to it being so drawn out with lots of unnecessary burbling (to my mind) & dreary voices.
By the time it actually got going enough for me to actually be interested in the story, it had more or less finished.
At least I gave it a go !!
