Description

Do you love twisty murder mysteries? Meet Tara Thorpe. The clue to a puzzling local murder has landed right on her doorstep. Perfect for fans of Faith Martin, LJ Ross, and Joy Ellis.

As the sun rises, a wealthy young woman, Samantha Seabrook, is found drowned in the ornamental fountain of a deserted Cambridge courtyard, the only clue: an antique silver chain wound tightly around her throat. 

It’s Tara Thorpe’s job to discover what happened to Miss Seabrook. But the case becomes personal when she learns that Samantha had been receiving death threats...rather like the one that landed on Tara’s doorstep the night the woman died.

Together with Detective Inspector Garstin Blake, Tara tracks the killer to the dank and dangerous fens on the outskirts of the city. But there’s something Tara can’t quite admit to Blake about her past – and it could make all the difference to whether they live...or die.

An absolutely gripping mystery that will keep you hooked until the very last word. The first in a series of pause-resisting Cambridge mysteries featuring Thorpe and Blake.

Really hard to listen to!

So boring. And the narrator was terrible, she has a breathy whisper for a voice. And she hisses her esses.
And the last couple of chapters that I read consisted of a string of 4 - 5 word sentences that the narrator paused with full stops between. So annoying!
I made it to the 10th chapter and quit, it wasn't worth wasting any more of my time.

Good story; narrator not so good

I rated this four stars strictly on the story itself. It was tedious listening to the audiobook; the narrator made this very boring. But I listened on and I enjoyed the mystery.

The characters are interesting. I thought DI Blake shared a bit too much with a reporter. I’m curious about the direction the next book will take. What will Tara do? Will Blake be around?

I may read the next book in this series rather than listen to it.

Heed the one star reviews

I so wish I had taken heed of several other reviewers who said that the narration kills this audiobook. I agree that the constantly breathless, overly intense speaking style of the narrator ruined this one for me. It's a bit like having someone whisper urgently in your ear. An occasional paragraph maybe, 11 hours of it, nope. Returning it.

poorly read

Don't really know what the story was because I couldn't understand the reader. Too bad
