In 1989, a killer dumped the body of 20-year-old Lucie Martin into a picturesque lake in the west of France. Fourteen years later, during a summer heat wave, a drought exposed her remains.
The Man on the Case
No one was ever convicted of her murder. But now, forensic expert Enzo Macleod is reviewing this stone-cold case - the toughest of those he has been challenged to solve.
The Skeleton in the Closet
Yet when Enzo finds a flaw in the original evidence surrounding Lucie's murder, he opens a Pandora's box that not only raises old ghosts but endangers his entire family.

Enzo Rides Again!
I think one thing that is cast in iron is that if Peter May releases an audio book with Peter Forbes narrating I am not going to regret buying it. This one takes another step to proving the rule. I would say it is actually one of the best of this particular series. McLeod's increasingly complex personal life develops apace as does the thriller of a story that his investigations bring him into. He's a great character to follow with his lack of tact and impatience with rules and procedures.
We get all the usual quality of Peter May's writing including finely described European locations and deep, multi-faceted characters plus twists and turns along the way. The depth of research that goes into this writing is self-evident. Peter Forbes as I have said previously is incredibly well suited as a narrator to May's writing and characters. In a series that in my view was never quite as consistently excellent as say the Lewis trilogy this book is a highlight.

A good series conclusion
Loved the Enzo Macleod series, this is the final book, it's just a shame books 2 & 3 aren't available in Audible as some of the relevant storyline & flow is missing. However this doesn't distract too much from this edge of the seat thriller it just would have been nice to have things fall into place with a better understanding of the actions & incidents that had obviously preceeded in the earlier two books. Peter May is one of my favourite authors. I haven't been disappointed once reading his books & now intend to go on to his China series. Once again Peter Forbes narration is superb with all his voice characterisations spot on. Thoroughly recommended.
