Publisher's Summary

The first woman had her lungs ripped out. When the same gruesome ritualistic method was used again, it was clear that the same killer was responsible. But there is no precise evidence to link the two cases, except for a tantalising email. Kriminalhauptkommissar Jan Fabel (half-Scottish, half-German) is a man of conscience and imagination. In his desperate attempt to solve the case before more victims are discovered, he gradually uncovers layer upon layer of intrigue. How can he track a murderer who leaves no trail, whose victims seem purposefully random and whose motive reaches far beyond greed and lust, into the darkest recesses of the human soul?

My first Craig Russell - well paced and well worth a read. I found this book very interesting and different.

I bought this because I'd run out of Lennox books. It took me a while to get deeply involved
but by the time I finished listening I'd formed 'the bond' with the characters. I notice that I come to expect, or is it need? that bond with an audiobook these days.

The female characters are superbly invented. Good feisty solid women without maddening feminist agendas or un-feminist soppiness. I liked them all.

Most of all the random brilliant sentence is there again. I'm envious of the writing skills.

The narration is flawless in my opinion. This isn't Lennox so do expect something different. It is much more complicated but nonetheless it wasn't wasted time.

Good - but not quite.

Story was OK - but the constant use of German for titles / roles/ departments - was tedious and detracted from the story. (It's a generalisation, but the Scandanavian authors are able to find the balance when using their native tongue in an English narrative. Has put me off listening to others in the series.....pity.
