Summary

Nothing remains buried forever....

When the bodies of two teenage girls are discovered on a building site, DCI Whitney Walker knows she's on the hunt for a killer. The problem is the murders happened in 1980 and this is her first case with the new team. What makes it even tougher is that with budgetary restrictions in place, she only has two weeks to solve it. 

Once again, she enlists the help of forensic psychologist Dr. Georgina Cavendish, but as she digs deeper into the past, she uncovers hidden truths that hurtle through the decades and into the present.

Repetitive narrative

The stories are fine, enjoyed them but how many times do we need to hear about Tiffany being saved by George, and Whitney's family being in care homes. !!!

Outstanding audio book

Used Kindle books for the series for the first 8 books and decided to give audio version a go. Delighted with the experience and characterisations by the narrator. Will now purchase book 10 as audio download and look forward to the experience

Brilliant as always

I’d recommend this books (Cavendish & Walker) to Vera the TV show lovers!

Love all the characters, and can picture the incident room in my head particularly love the character Dexter the forensic pathologist!

Loved this latest installment

Really enjoyed the different kind of case that Cavendish & Walker were investigating this time, and everyone getting to grips with a new team and building. Excellent characterisation by the wonderful Clare Corbett as always.

Not the Best in the Series

This wasn't the best in series to me. It does have her usual thing that really annoys me. She has this incessant need to remind you of past events. Every single book has referenced the twins and what happened to her daughter. Every one has has reminded of the reasons her mother and brother are in care homes. It's hard to still want to pay attention when it happens over and over and involves every single thing that happened. Feels like she does it to hit a word count. Either that or she thinks everyone has the memory capacity of a goldfish.

The story itself differs from her usual serial killer trope. Incredibly predictable ending though. It's still a decent story if you don't require it to surprise you.

A cold case about 2 missing teenage girls nobody liked. The remains found on a farm being developed for housing.She spent more time with the story of the new team and new building than the investigation. The beginning had me not liking Whitney. Focused on how mad she was that new team members weren't doing it how she demanded. A lot of complaining and whining about that. It lacked any build up or suspense. Had wrap up neatly like typical tv cop show episode. If you get through the book you'd understand. Didn't want to "spoil" it. I'm incapable of stopping with series until the series ends. That's why I'll still buy every one, whether good or not.

Not so good .. disappointed again

I was disappointed with book 8, thought this instalment (book 9) would be back to the standard of 1-7 but no luck. This and previous book (8) seems to have lost their edge. The victims were cold cases, not likeable, the suspense wasn't there & I didn't bond to the characters. I really enjoyed the earlier books ... hoping book 10 goes back to the same quality

I love these books!

Few things bring such joy as a beautifully written and performed series book. I felt like I had found old friends as I happily slipped back into the story. I can't wait to start the next one!
