Publisher's Summary

The body of a young woman is found on the streets of East London, in the shadow of the City's gleaming towers. No ID on her, just hard-earned cash. But there is no doubting the ferocity of the attack.
DI Simon Fenchurch takes charge but, as his team tries to identify her and piece together her murder, they're faced with cruel indifference at every turn - nobody cares about yet another dead prostitute. To Fenchurch, however, she could just as easily be Chloe, his daughter still missing after ten years, whose memory still haunts his days and nights, his burning obsession having killed his marriage.
When a second body is discovered, Fenchurch must peel back the grimy layers shrouding the London sex trade, confronting his own traumatic past while racing to undo a scheme larger, more complex and more evil than anything he could possibly have imagined.

Don't waste your money

If this book wasn’t for you, who do you think might enjoy it more?

No one

What will your next listen be?

When Breath becomes Air by Paul Kalanithi

How did the narrator detract from the book?

The narrator was lost with voice character interpretations. Something of a story line but no depth to it at all except for all the drums that were playing in head!! Was that a hint for heightened suspense? Didn't work.

You didn’t love this book--but did it have any redeeming qualities?

no

Any additional comments?

I read reviews before I purchase and I purchase a few books. Please make them honest reviews.

It's ok

I found the accent difficult to follow at the beginning and the story jumped around a little too much for me. However I found a rhythm and got into it

A waste of time

The lead detective is plagued by problems with acid reflux and, in tense moments, hearing drums in his head. These issues are referred to constantly. The story appears to be a fairly run-of-the-mill police procedural, but takes a turn toward the absurd (not intentionally) toward the end. My advice: don't bother.

Tedious

Just simply over done. Repetitiveness became unbearably annoying until you don't care about any of the characters.

Good Police Yarn, shame about the narration

A good story line was spoilt for me by the characterisations of the narrator. Basic narration was fine but the voices of most of the male characters sounded very similar and as if they all smoked 40 a day. In particular Savage and Fenchurch’s dad were the most difficult, therefore ended up reading the Kindle edition for most of the story. Will read the kindle edition of second book in the series, which is a shame as usually I find the Audible narrators excellent.
