Publisher's Summary

A boy's body is found in a churchyard. His heart had been cut out....
DI Sam Clayton has never dealt with such an extreme crime in the quiet Norfolk villages that are part of his patch. When a waitress, Emma Dawson, disappears, it looks like the police might have a serial killer on their hands. Emma seems to have been part of cultish group obsessed with contacting the dead via a medieval mystic. But a mysterious Frenchman and one of the local nature wardens are also suspects. The mystery is further complicated by the locals' reluctance to share their secrets with the police. DI Clayton's team also harbor some tragic secrets and it looks like only one of his detectives will be kept on, even if they do catch the vicious killer. When another child disappears, DI Clayton faces a race against time to prevent any further crimes. Not only that, but he must confront local superstitions and keep his team under control as violence threatens to spiral out of control.

Time I'll never get back

Appalling book full of cliches. Pronunciation & regional accents were unbelievable. Do not waste money on this dire offering.

What could have made this a 4 or 5-star listening experience for you?

I bought this book both in the ebook and audible version. It is based in Norfolk, where I live, and was anticipating a happy few hours reading/listening. The book itself is ok - the plot has promise. But the audible version is absolutely dreadful. Michael Healy has no idea of how to intonate what he is reading, and his attempts at a norfolk accent.... please can I point out that Norfolk is NOT near Birmingham? I will be avoiding books that he has narrated from now on.
