Publisher's Summary

Get hooked on Heck: the maverick detective who knows no boundaries. A grisly whodunit you won't be able to put down, perfect for fans of Stuart MacBride and TV series Luther.
Heck needs to watch his back. Because someone's watching him... Across the south of England, a series of bizarre but fatal accidents are taking place. So when a local businessman survives a near-drowning but is found burnt alive in his car just weeks later, DS Mark 'Heck' Heckenburg is brought in to investigate.
Soon it appears that other recent deaths might be linked: two thieves that were bitten to death by poisonous spiders, and a driver impaled through the chest with scaffolding.
Accidents do happen but as the body count rises it's clear that something far more sinister is at play, and it's coming for Heck too....

Wow top Marks!

I really enjoyed this book in fact I could not put it down , I had to keep listening to see what happened next . This is book 5 in the series and I had not listened or read any Paul finch before . However it was fine coming in to the middle of the series as he is away from his home beat and is working with a new side kick . My only regret is that now I want to read the whole series and this is the only one audible US has. The murders were a bit gruesome but the " whodunnit " kept you guessing

Enjoyable and convoluted

The convoluted plot leads Heck through much of the home counties chasing the posibility that a comedy duo is murdering people at random. In this effort he has to endure local CID help from DC Gail Honeyford. The personality clashes work well while they sort out if they are tackeling a crime or not. The conclusion stretches credibility but in the end works nicely. There may be a few minor plot weaknesses but this is a fun crime novel with lots of imaginative gore.

Heck at his ultimate best.

Paul Finch just goes from better to better with every book in the series. Heck just seems to slot into a gap left by many other fictional detectives and is a ' one off ' when it comes to solving oddball crimes, difinitely thinking way out of the box to solve the most heinous of crimes.
Cannot wait for the next Heck to be published. A definitive must for all fans of Peter James, Mark Billingham, wtc.
