First he kills.
A psychologist is found brutally murdered, an addict jumps to his death and a student is found dead. These are the facts. And they are all that DIs Wheeler and Ross have.
As Wheeler and Ross weave through the layers of Glasgow’s underbelly, they find a subculture where truth and lies are interchangeable commodities, and violence is the favoured currency.
The killer stays one step ahead of them as Wheeler uncovers a web of deceit in which her own nephew is entangled.
He leaves his legacy....
And as the case draws to a close, Wheeler has to confront her own integrity and face the dilemma: is justice always served by the truth?

Ce que les membres d'Audible en pensent
Put me to sleep!
Would you try another book from A. J. McCreanor and/or Caroline Guthrie?
Doubt it. Once burned...
Would you ever listen to anything by A. J. McCreanor again?
Probably not. The story just seemed to amble along and I frequently found myself drifting off to other thoughts. Believe I need something a little faster paced.
Would you be willing to try another one of Caroline Guthrie’s performances?
Would have to listen to the sample first. If she continues with the HEAVY accent, no.
You didn’t love this book... but did it have any redeeming qualities?
Not that I can think of. Totally wasted a credit.

Accent makes difficult
for an American, the narrator's accent makes this tough to get into. haven't listened to much as a result.

Too many back plots
I struggled to finish this one. there were so many bad thoughts and subplots that I had to keep backing up to remember who was whom. By the end of the book I neither knew nor cared who the original murderer was. I also could not find one redeemable or likable character, except perhaps the dog.

Thick accent hard to understand in places requiring more concentration than just casual listening. Takes effort which distracts from the story.
