Summary

Can DS Karen Hart rely on the word of a little girl to save the life of a woman in grave danger?

When a woman is abducted from a quiet suburban street and bundled into the back of a white van, the only witness to the crime is a child with a reputation for telling tall tales.

The police doubt the girl’s story, except for Detective Karen Hart, who is determined to follow her instincts—perhaps because the shy little girl reminds her of the daughter she’s still grieving.

When a playing card is found at the scene, Karen finds her first clue. And when a second card is found at the home of a missing woman, Tamara, Karen finds her victim. But before the team can catch their breath, another woman linked to Tamara is snatched. And then a body turns up in a farmer’s field.

With the crimes having escalated from kidnap to murder, Karen must unlock the killer’s calling-card code before any more victims are taken. But getting to the truth isn’t going to be easy when Tamara’s family has so much to hide...

Never dissappoint's

The best in the series

Really enjoyed What She Said. We finally get to meet Sophie's hero Dr Michaels and he becomes involved in the abduction case central to the story. I really thought I'd worked out who did it part way though but as often happens a plot twist proved me wrong.

That was a long wait

But did not disappoint. The story was gripping and had quite a few red herrings or chickens but the good won over bad and the good old British police procedure triumphed over the fancy profiler business but all tongue in cheek of course. All the team seem more settled and more mature but I’ve missed a bit the personal touches. There was very little own personal turmoils and dramas and all police business but I’m sure next time they will have more upset and excitement again. I for sure will be waiting in anticipation for the next chapter.

Not the best

I have never loved this narrator so if she is OK with others put the performance up. It was very convoluted but I guessed part of it way before the end but then as soon as one bit of info was asked for it was very clear. I have been looking forward to the book and am keeping it but just a tad disappointed.

Entertaining, great narration.

The story line was a surprise, but not who was responsible for the events. There were hints regarding who was responsible on several occasions.

One of the best Crime Thriller Series

I can't explain how much I love these series. The story line grips me from the beginning till the end. I love the chemistry between Karen and Morgan and hoping for something more with those two. I can't wait to read the next one in the series. Keep it coming Butler!

Absolutely love this series

This series is so well written and the narrator is the best. I love the writing and how real it all feels. I also like that you do not know who did what until the author is ready for you to figure it out. Makes you feel more involved in solving the cases.

Great Book!

Once again DS Karen Hart and her associates beat the odds and find a very unlikely person who abducted and was responsible for the deaths of 2 women. D.S. Butler never fails with her mysteries! The narrator does an excellent job!
