Penguin presents the unabridged, downloadable audiobook edition of No Name Lane by Howard Linskey, read by David Leon.
The hunt for a serial killer unearths an unsolved cold case from over 60 years ago. Young girls are being abducted and murdered in the North-East. Out of favour detective constable Ian Bradshaw struggles to find any leads - and fears that the only thing this investigation will unravel is himself.
Journalist Tom Carney is suspended by his London tabloid and returns to his home village in County Durham. Helen Norton is the reporter who replaced Tom on the local newspaper. Together they are drawn into a case that will change their lives forever.
When a body is found, it's not the latest victim but a decades-old corpse. Secrets buried for years are waiting to be found while in the present day, an unstoppable killer continues to evade justice....

A Lot to Like, but Weak Narration
- C. Telfair "Audible has changed my life! Dry , itchy eyes were destroying one of my greatest pleasures - reading. Now I am experiencing books again!"
Excellent police procedural
Terrific, understated reader. Just loved the sound of his voice and character interpretations.
Very well done, and had enough plot twists to keep me guessing. Early on I thought I'd nailed the identity of the serial killer, but continued anyway because I was enjoying the writing. I was pleased to find that I was wrong. So nice when a mystery breaks the formula.
Will certainly check out more from this author.
- Galadriel "I have to admit that I'm a total Audible junkie. MUST have book going at all times. I may be the subject of a family intervention someday."
