Summary

The unmissable new thriller from the internationally best-selling author of The Girl in the Ice, Nine Elms and Shadow Sands, Robert Bryndza.

Kate Marshall's detective agency takes off when she and her partner, Tristan, are hired to investigate a cold case from more than a decade ago. Twelve years previously, a determined young journalist called Joanna Duncan exposed a political scandal that had major repercussions. In the fallout she disappeared without trace and was never found. 

When Kate and Tristan examine the case files, they find the trail long cold, but they discover the names of two young men who also vanished at that time. As she begins to connect their last days, Kate realizes that Joanna may have been onto something far more sinister than anyone first believed: the identity of a serial killer preying on the people who few will ever miss. 

But the closer Kate comes to finding the killer, the darker things become....

Another great mystery solved.

I really enjoyed this book as I chose to have the book and the audible version, so I could mix and match how I interacted with the media.
I'm not a spoiler so I'm just going to say, you need to keep your wits about you. Enjoy

By far his best to date, of all protagonists !

Absolutely loved it !
The narrator's voice trick of pausing between phrases needs to be ironed out.
Otherwise a faultless production.
