Publisher's Summary

Criminologist Martin Knight lives a gilded life and is a thorn in the side of the police. But then his wife, Liz, goes missing. There is no good explanation and no sign of Martin.... To make things worse, Liz is the ex-girlfriend of DCI Craig Gillard, who is drawn into the investigation. 

Is it just a missing person or something worse? And what relevance do the events around the shocking Girl F case, so taken up by Knight, have to do with the present? The truth is darker than you could ever have imagined.

Exceptional

I listen to many British police procedurals and this is one of the best. From the research to the narration, you won’t be disappointed.

Clever

This is an excellent book. Worth a credit, very well written. I understand a second in the series will be coming out soon. Can’t wait.

WORTH THE PURCHASE

Even though the listener to the audiobook "The Body in the Marsh" figures out who done it fairly quickly, the how and why remain a mystery until the end. An intricate plot and great narration make this an excellent listen.

Loved this book

You know when you don’t want a book to end, well this for me was one of those books. Well you do want it to end because you are really curious as to the outcome. This was a well researched book with a great story. The narration was second to none and very enjoyable. Nick Louth is now on my list of favourite authors. The story is complex and I don’t want to go into it in depth frightened of giving too much away, well worth a read

Not for me

I really didn't like the way this was written, first of all, I got hung up on the poor sentence structure: A man was mentioned and in the brief description it was mention that he had an earring in his left ear called 'Joe Bloggs' ( I cannot remember the actual name). I also was aware of the plot long before it was revealed.
Overall I found the whole thing 'clunky'. The narrator was really awful, his voices and accents were painful to hear.

I won't be looking for anything more from this author, nor the narrator.

Good plot

It is a long book and at times you may lose track of who is who.
Unfortunately I realised the twist and called it really early in the book. I still enjoyed listening to it so I can get confirmation of my suspicions.
Very well researched so I cannot fault any part of it.

Guessed it pretty much as soon as first clue laid down

Very well read but way too obvious. And lots of soft exist undertones throughout sadly.

Fantastic story and reader

Peopled with believable folk interesting ‘hero “ not really feet of clay but like us all a few flaws. The reader is excellent best for last run of books.
