About the performer


Louise Brealey is an English stage and screen actress and writer. She is best known for playing Molly Hooper in the BBC's Sherlock. Her other television work includes Clique (BBC/Amazon), A Discovery of Witches (SKY), David Mitchell and Robert Webb’s sitcom Back (Big Talk/Channel Four) and Gomorrah (SKY Atlantic).

Summary

The first in an intelligent, multi-layered crime series featuring DI Eva Harris.   

A vicious killer on the loose, a traitor on the team - and a past that’s catching up with her.

Can DI Harris see the truth before it’s too late?  

An expert killer who takes his victims’ eyes - can DI Harris see clearly enough to uncover the truth?  

On the first day of her new job, Harris is called to the scene of a brutal murder at the heart of Surrey society. A shocking crime, with a meticulous killer: the victim’s eyes have been removed and the body drained of blood, with no forensic evidence left at the scene.   

Her boss insists it must be the return of a killer who escaped justice several years ago, leaving a trail of bloody ritualistic killings. Harris isn’t so sure: both sets of victims have had their eyes removed, but other details are significantly different.   

But Harris’s desperate desire to uncover the truth is complicated by her secret mission to find corruption at the heart of the police. Who can she trust in her own team? Harris is also hiding a secret past of her own - can she find the killer and learn who to depend on, before her dark history catches up with her?

Too much swearing

good story but there is far too much swearing for my liking and that's why I returned it. The narrator seems to have only one tone of voice doesn't fluctuate to match the scene or the moods of the characters but minus this would of been a really good listen

Dreadful narration good story

Only the story kept me listening to this book. This is some of the worst narration I’ve ever heard on audible. I’ve heard better reading out loud from teenage school kids. And this is definitely reading out loud rather than narration. I don’t care if she was in lockdown, I would have thought reading from home would be more comfortable.
The story though was exciting and intriguing though I did guess the villains fairy early on. It was quite satisfying to be proved right.
You can tell it’s written by a man though. There’s a few sex scenes, which while not graphic or explicit are still gratuitous and the women’s sexual motivations are questionable.

Took a punt on this book and won

I had not heard of author and the style was not one I would normally choose. However it was complex and kept me listening to the point I sat in my car after journeys end. I loved the fierce main character and the story within a story concept. Gosh, loved it.

Loved the story and the narrator

I struggle to find narrators I can enjoy listening to, I loved this narrator. The story was gripping from start to finish. Can’t wait for the next book.

Robotic narration

A good story, although very technical in parts. I struggled to get into the story initially as I found the narration monotone.
