Publisher's Summary

In this brilliant debut, a psychologist finds herself drawn into the dark world of a serial killer - who may be closer than she thinks. Mulholland Books presents...Crossbones Yard.
Ray and Marie Benson killed 13 women before they were caught, tried and imprisoned. Five of their victims were never found.
Six years later psychologist Alice Quentin discovers a woman's body on the waste ground at Crossbones Yard. The wounds are horrifyingly similar to the Bensons' signature style. But who would want to copy their crimes?
When Alice is called in to consult, her first instinct is to say no. She wants to focus on treating her patients, not analysing the mind of a murderer.
But the body at Crossbones Yard is just the start, and the killer may already be closer than Alice knows.

Good start to a series

I enjoyed the story very much. I look forward to getting deeper into the characters in future books. I think, however, that the book is let down by the narrator. Her voice sounds much too mature for Alice, whose point of view we're hearing. I think a younger sound would serve the characters and story well. Looking forward to the next one.

Brilliant

Would you consider the audio edition of Crossbones Yard to be better than the print version?

I rarely buy print books as my eyes aren't too brill so I wouldn't know.

Who was your favorite character and why?

If I told you that it would give away the ending.

Which scene did you most enjoy?

All of it. This is the best book I have listened to for quite a few months. Couldn't put it down - listened to it it all in one go. Gripping.

If you made a film of this book, what would be the tag line be?

London based Thriller with a sting in the tail.

Any additional comments?

I was beginning to get despondent as I had not found any new authors for quite a while - until this came along. Even then I wasn't sure about buying it because of the title, but it had good reviews so I gave it a go. I am so glad I did
