Inhaltsangabe

The hole they dug was not deep. A white flour bag encased the little body. Three small faces watched from the window, eyes black with terror.

The child in the middle spoke without turning his head. "I wonder which one of us will be next?"

When a woman's body is discovered in a cathedral and hours later a young man is found hanging from a tree outside his home, Detective Lottie Parker is called in to lead the investigation. Both bodies have the same distinctive tattoo clumsily inscribed on their legs. It's clear the pair are connected, but how?

The trail leads Lottie to St Angela's, a former children's home, with a dark connection to her own family history. Suddenly the case just got personal.

As Lottie begins to link the current victims to unsolved murders decades old, two teenage boys go missing. She must close in on the killer before they strike again, but in doing so is she putting her own children in terrifying danger?

Lottie is about to come face to face with a twisted soul who has a very warped idea of justice.

excellent police procedural!

what can I say? I really enjoyed it!

Good police procedural, interesting female lead detective, single mum, with a complicated personality and doomed past. Nice setting: Ireland.

Some reviews criticized the bland character development, have to disagree. I felt very drawn to the characters.

For everyone who enjoys a good police procedural with an unlikely heroine in an unusual environment.

Fantastic!

I hardly ever review books, but this series (there are, as for now, two more) had me in it's grip the last two weeks. There are all the elements that make for a great, classic crime story - a small town, bad weather, drug-addled inspectors, a small pinch of romance, identifiable characters, a twist you don't expect - it's awesome, and I want book four right now!

Great

Complicated crimes from years ago stretch to modern times. Really twisted crime story. Can strongly reconmened and will now start with the second book of this series.

Too many twists

The author does her own advertising by promising an 'absolutely gripping thriller with a jaw-dropping twist'. Good authors do not need to make any such promises, they just write convincing stories. This author needs more than a 100 chapters for a story that could have been told in much less time, and there is nothing jaw-dropping about the twist, actually it is so twisted that in the end one is not sure (but also does not really care) who did what to whom. I am very sure that I will not read any other of these 'gripping' stories.
I was also unconvinced by Michele Moran's performance, who reads the story in a way that one is not always sure who says what, sometimes she reads the women's part in a voice that suggests a man, and then raises her voice for the man's answer.
On the whole neither the author, nor the reader of the story are to be recommended.
