Summary

Catch the train if you dare....

After a teenage boy is found dead on a Lenchester train, Detective Chief Inspector Whitney Walker believes they’re being targeted by the notorious Carriage Killer, who chooses a local rail network, commits four murders, and moves on.

Against her wishes, Walker’s boss brings in officers from another force to help the investigation and prevent more deaths, but she’s forced to defend her team against this outside interference.

Forensic psychologist, Dr. Georgina Cavendish, is by her side in an attempt to bring to an end this killing spree. But how can they get into the mind of a killer who has already killed 12 times in two years without leaving behind a single clue?

For fans of Rachel Abbott, L J Ross, and Angela Marsons, Death Track is the third in the Cavendish & Walker series. A gripping serial killer thriller that will have you hooked.

Includes a special bonus note from the author.

Critic reviews

"Narrator Clare Corbett flawlessly creates the accents and setting of Lenchester, England, while introducing Detective Chief Inspector Whitney Walker and her polar opposite, psychologist Georgina Cavendish.... Corbett's best creation is pathologist Clare Dexter whose eccentricities add a bit of levity. The well-rendered step-by-step procedural, with its gripping conclusion, makes for an exceptional listen." (AudioFile Magazine, review of Cavendish & Walker)

To many he said, she said

I am sorry I had to stop listening after the first few chapters.
Far to many he said, she said. It spoilt the flow of the story to the point all I could hear was he said, she said, they said ect

This series keeps on getting better and better

Having now listened to, and loved, the first three books in the Cavendish and Walker series plus the prequel short story, I can only say that each book blows me away. Just as I think the series can't possibly get any better, I listen to another book in the series and once again, get blown away by the excelling plotting and characterisation. I get sucked in from the first words to the last and fly through these books so quickly because I literally don't want to stop listening! They are the sort of books I snatch every spare minute I can to listen to...washing up, putting a load of washing in, nipping for a wee! If I can snatch a few minutes to listen to these books I will. They are superb 👌👌👌

Another great entry in the series

Loving this series. Did feel like this book felt a little rushed through and could have spent more time exploring the main characters, but aside of that this was a great book and excellent performance.

Over all, an entertaining listen.

After I slowed down the playback speed, which surely must have been a mistake, I quite enjoyed this “free with membership “ audio book.

Simplistic

"He" said, "She" said constantly, spoilt the story. Not really needed once a charecter is established.

love the story and the girl crush but...

Is there am editor in the house? I frequently wonder if anyone reviews audiobooks before they are released. "Emphatic" definition is not "putting yourself in someone else's shoes" (the word you wanted is EMPATHETIC, to show empathy for another. Emphatic means expressing oneself forcibly or strongly, something the Dr in this story has NO problem with. I make this offer all the time (or I make it with 65% of the audiobooks that contain errors brought forth from the hard copy and the 90% of Audible books that contain pronunciation errors, contact me. I will do a better editing job (for 🆓 or for early release copies). I have almost 3 decades experience as an editor and tech writer . Errors stick out like a red waving flag to me. Otherwise, a fun series that requires at least a little extra suspension of disbelief.

Sophomoric

Tedious story with uninteresting characters. Narrator made the women sound like teenagers. Skipping chapters helped.

Take the time. Its enjoyable

I don't like or do well with thriller/serial killer books or movies. I just can't. But these are very good and just the right amount of suspense for me. I keep coming back for the next one.

Good enough, thank thin on the ground.

Perhaps this is 3 1/2 stars.
I like the characters which is why I keep reading the books, but the whole novel is fairly simplistic. In general, I prefer things that are more psychologically complicated and have more subplots.
Spoiler alert!
For example, George’s parents are quite toxic. I won’t go into details, but suffice it to say, she accepts them with a fair amount of equanimity. This makes very little psychological sense as most people would have some major issues from having parents like that. Exploring a fuller range of her emotional reactions would make the book a heck of a lot more interesting, at least to me. On the other hand, if you’re just looking for something to distract you and kill time this is a perfectly fine choice.

Good Story

A young boy is murdered at the train depot, and now it is being called the carriage killer. The MO of being 12 killed this way, she is expecting there will be more. With this needing her whole attention, she has her old nemesis turn up. George and Whitney one loves the banter they bring to the story. This had a time schedule to solve the case which added to the story. Good series, as the characters continue to develop with each new story.
Given audio for my voluntary review and my honest opinion

Fave in series, so far.

I like the sarcasm captured in the dialog. Also, I enjoy the author's comments afterwards.

death track

I really enjoy Sally Rigby's writing style. it's serious with a bit of humor thrown in (albeit sarcastic at times) and I'll find myself laughing right out loud. I love the banter between these two main women in this series. the police detective and the doctor of psychology. I don't understand why the relationship works between them but it does and It makes me laugh. still in the first three books I've read it's been all about their attempt at searching for serial killers. definitely interesting but I suggest you don't eat much during book two.. lolol

More of the same.

The previous two books in the series were pretty good and Clare Corbett is an excellent narrator but I could not finish this one. The trope of detective with a chip on her shoulder and fast-tracked boss has been over played to the point of boredom, I swear Whitney and her senior officer have the same argument in every single book.

Many of the characters are one dimensional, I would have hoped by this stage that they would be more fleshed out, but we still know very little about Ellie, Matt and others on the team. Maybe character development is in the wings, I guess I’ll never know now!

If you want something easy and undemanding to listen to with a fabulous narrator and do not mind the fact that you know going in that there are always going to be at least three murders (because it’s always a serial killer) then this book, and series will do the job. If however you are looking for something a bit more demanding with more plausible plot lines then I’d look elsewhere.

Book 3

Good pacing. Be it the nut jobs doing their brand of righting the world, a little romance for spicing things up, and if course Whitney and George taking care of business.

Great story

Enjoyed the working relationship between the main characters. The suspense tracking down the killer was great.
