Summary

Another instalment in the brilliant Kitt Hartley Yorkshire Mysteries, perfect for fans of Faith Martin and Betty Rowlands.

When a violent murder shatters the otherwise peaceful idyll of Andaby near Hebden Bridge, DS Charlotte Banks can't help but suspect that her brother Ewan—recently released from prison and now living in Calderdale—is behind it. Ewan claims he's innocent, and even has an alibi to prove it, but DS Banks isn't convinced. So much so that she turns to the only people who can help her in an investigation this personal: Kitt Hartley and Grace Edwards, of Hartley and Edwards Investigations.

On the hunt for the killer, Kitt and Grace discover the victim was choked to death on her old school sash. From this lead, Kitt, Grace and DS Banks are drawn down a dark trail littered with decade-old grudges, schoolyard secrets, broken hearts and bullies, and struggle to get closer to the truth. When a second victim goes missing however, the clock starts ticking.

Can Kitt recover the missing woman before it's too late? And how do you catch a killer hiding in plain sight?

Good story

I started listening to these books when Eilidh Beaton was the original narrator and I loved them. I keep listening as I feel invested in the series but I really do not like the new narrator. I just find the characters unrealistic now and really wish they would go back to Eilidhs narration. This is nothing against the author as the stories are brill. I think if the current narrator had narrated the whole series it wouldn’t be as noticeable but I feel like the voices and accents have changed to much and it’s not the same characters now. Feels like the lead actor has changed half way through a series if that makes sense. I just wish publishers understood the effect narration can have on a story.
