Description

Isobel Swan, a sixth form student, has been murdered. First, her ring finger is severed, then her throat is cut.

With the investigation going nowhere fast, Detective Inspector Nick Dixon is sent undercover as a trainee teacher into Isobel's boarding school.

But to find the killer, he must first confront his inner demons and lay to rest the ghosts lurking in his own past. If he can...

As Dixon digs deeper, the stakes have never been higher and a murder has never felt so personal.

Swansong is the fourth novel in Damien Boyd's highly addictive crime series.

Well-written and narrated. Preposterous plot.

It's quite a solid mystery, but readers cannot look back and see the clues that might have led them to anticipate the identity of the murderer. Nick Dixon is a believable character as is his girlfriend, Constable Jane Winter. Although I haven't read the previous three in this series, this one seems self-contained. Having said that, I found the plot to be unbelievable, both as to the behavior of the killer as well as those people encountered by Nick and Jane in the course of the story. Stories about crazed serial killers are not my favorite type of mystery. My one complaint about the narration is that Nick Dixon sounds perpetually blasé, even when he is supposed to be excited.

Superb murder mystery!

With Swansong the promise of the DI Nick Dixon series has been fully realized. This is an outstanding multiple murder mystery. Nick Dixon goes undercover as a teacher trainee to solve a series of murders that began with his girlfriend at age 16. Recommended!

Great read and listen..

This is about the death of a 17 year old girl at a boarding school, where Dixon goes undercover to find a killer, only to discover there’s been another murder soon after his arrival. Then someone tries to kill Dixon. A lot of killing going on again. And I’m surprised there’s not more cops killed since they don’t have guns, only the bad guys do. Every time he has to have back-up he calls for armed men. That seems kind of crazy to me. Someone’s firing at him and 6 young boys out in the woods and he can’t even fire back?

So, this is the 4th of the 5 Nick Dixon books I’ve read and in EVERY book Dixon’s poor dog, Monty, is always kept in Dixon’s car. Every time he goes to work Monty’s in the car. How cruel is that? I mean, he’s a cop, for Pete’s sake. He’s at work for really long periods of time, and he keeps the dog closed up in a car? That doesn’t make a bit of sense.

Anyway, this was another good read and it had an exciting ending, and a surprising one, too. I would have never guessed who the killer was.

As with all Mr. Boyd’s book there isn’t even a touch of romance BUT there is swearing and the F-bomb was used 17 times.

As to the narration: I’ve enjoyed all 4 of these books, mostly because of the narration I think. Napoleon Ryan is such a fantastic narrator. The men’s and women’s voices are all so perfect.

Excellent

Damien Boyd again keeps you on the edge of your seat as you try to solve the Crime before he does and Napoleon Ryan makes the characters come to life.

Past Replicates the Present in Residential Academi

Former attorney Detective Inspector Nick Dixon hasn't even unpacked from a much needed vacation before he's assigned to work undercover to find a young student's killer. Unprepared for its link to his painful past, he walks the line of finding answers without tainting the case with his personal conflict.

The Bridgewater precinct regulars coupled with Shard, the local DI in charge, walk the tightrope of separating facts from the abundance of fantasy not so easily distinguished by all parties involved.

DI Nixon, again ably assisted by Jane and Louise, dusts off his blazer and plays the student teacher part to catch a killer that got away with murdering his first love seventeen years ago.

In this fourth installment, we are able to watch DI Dixon grapple with unresolved pain and dangerous anger as he closes the net on his decades old prey.

Can he find the answer without losing himself!

Great Series

There are nine books in the DI Nick Dixon series, all of which I’ve read as well as listened to on Audible. Every book is quite good but this one, Swansong, is my personal favorite.

DI Dixon goes undercover at a boarding school where his first and greatest love disappeared their final year of school. The grief and loss changed the course of his life and fans of this series can watch as he solves the mystery of her disappearance and brings closure to her family and himself.

Love this series

Really enjoy the series and the narration. I enjoy listening to series as it is interesting to watch the characters evolve.
This being an English author I enjoy the accent and the British words for things. Also enjoy listening to a story from an English policeman’s point of view.

Very Involved & Exciting

This Series has gotten progressively better and I enjoyed this book tremendously. DI Nick Dixon and Constable Jane Winter make a really good team and the author winds the story around these two main characters. Exciting hearing the story unfold.
