Publisher's Summary

Meet Amy Winter: Detective Inspector, daughter of a serial killer.

DI Amy Winter is hoping to follow in the footsteps of her highly respected police officer father. But when a letter arrives from the prison cell of Lillian Grimes, one half of a notorious husband-and-wife serial-killer team, it contains a revelation that will tear her life apart.

Responsible for a string of heinous killings decades ago, Lillian is pure evil. A psychopathic murderer. And Amy’s biological mother. Now, she is ready to reveal the location of three of her victims - but only if Amy plays along with her twisted game.

While her fellow detectives frantically search for a young girl taken from her mother’s doorstep, Amy must confront her own dark past. Haunted by blurred memories of a sister who sacrificed herself to save her, Amy faces a race against time to uncover the missing bodies.

But what if, from behind bars, Grimes has been pulling the strings even tighter than Amy thought? And can she overcome her demons to prevent another murder?

Another Excellent Book from Caroline Mitchell

Great book and a start to another excellent series of novels from Caroline Mitchell. Narration was first rate. Can't wait for the next book in the series.

Surprisingly good!!!!

This book creeps up on you - the description seems simple enough but the book is written well and 'layered'. It was a pleasant surprise. Good narration!

Puttytat

Great Book! No spoilers. Excellent narrator. She should win an award someday. Great story BUT!!!! If you are going to have what all listeners are finally hoping for, an intelligent female driven main character with guts! Don’t have that intelligence COME & GO!! Please !! It is something women writers do with their female characters. The main character has the right thoughts and actions and at the height of things, here it comes .. Wait for it... THE STUPIDS!!! The character starts having dumb second thoughts men would never have. Makes me crazy.
It is worth listening to. Just be prepared for the inevitable. I wasn’t because the writer seemed impervious to this malady but she did it.

Great listening

Listening to audio books makes my daily commute less painful and keeps me from falling asleep behind the wheel.
Not a chance with this one! One of the better serial killer books I have purchased but definitely can not be compared with author Rachael Abbott, Rachael Caine and Leslie Wolf.

Can’t wait for book 2.
Just change the narrator please. Only persevered because the book was so good!

Annoying and unbelievable

So much about this book annoyed me! The absurd obsession with the cat. The stark divide between stereotypical sinners and saints (even though a few characters were more complex, most were just stereotypes). The ridiculous twists at the end. And of course the classic "detective goes into dangerous situation alone and inexplicably decides not to call for backup". This will be my first and last book by this author.

maybe a wee bit far fetched in the storyline but enjoyed it. Narrator was ok but many of the characters sounded the same

A gripping tale with a surprise at the end!

those of us who recall the infamous husband and wife serial killer the Wests, this story brings home the tragedy wreaked upon victim's families.
Brilliantly told!

Wrong narrater

Far fetched with unlikeable characters. The narrater also wasn’t right for the story. A shame, as the story could really have worked with some tweaks.

I liked the concept

but didn't warm to the main character who came across as holier than thou whilst having plenty of flaws of her own
