0


In a single night, Kyle Davidson's life is derailed. His relationship is over, he is denied access to his young son and everything important to him is at risk. His thoughts stumble between fear and revenge. Kyle Davidson has a choice to make. Meanwhile, after the tragic end to a previous case, DC Gary Goodhew finds himself questioning his reasons for returning to work until the badly beaten body of a homeless man is found on Market Hill. Having known the homeless man for several years, Goodhew feels compelled to be part of the investigation - but routine lines of enquiry soon take a dark and unexpected turn. Suddenly the Cambridge back streets hold deadly secrets for Goodhew, and the only person who has the answers is planning one final, desperate act. ©2016 Alison Bruce (P)2016 Audible, Ltd

"One of the better ones"

Whilst I like the lightness of the narrator's voice he really does need to learn local pronunciations - perhaps someone local could proof listen before publication! It would be good if he had more character identification as well - like the other books before it he is "reading" rather than "acting" as good narrators seem to be able to do.Plot wise, there is always the bit of gratuitous sexual violence in there again - that really could be left out for me but not as bad as in previous books. Because of the location I hang in there with the Goodhew novels and this was one of the better ones for me.
