Publisher's Summary

When a body is hauled from the River Tyne, Sarah Tucker heads North for a closer look. She identifies the dead woman as private detective Zöe Boehm, but putting a name to the corpse only raises further questions. Did Zöe kill herself, or did one of her old cases come looking for her? And what's brought Sarah's former sparring partner Gerard Inchon to the same broken-down hotel? From derelict shipyards to its glitzy new quayside, Newcastle shows a different face everywhere Sarah looks. But then so do all the people she encounters, gangster, barman, scientist, cop - Sarah can't trust anyone. Nor can she leave until she's found the answer, however dangerous that discovery might turn out to be...

Herron writes masterfully.

It is nice to see a talented writer in the "Crime Fiction" genre. Plot is coherent, prose is beautiful, plenty of atmosphere, good dialogue, story moves forward at a good pace, memorable characters. Herron is a fun writer to read, and I'm not exactly sure why. His voice is distinct, but not forced. He is daring with his choice of words, but not forced. He has a style, but each book I read stands enough on its own to at least not 'seem' formulaic.

I hope Mr. Herron's writing continues to get better and better.

I look forward to reading his next book. (or as in this case listening to it) Anna Bentinck did a good job reading. I have no complaints, and for me that is high praise.

Excellent series

Almost didn't read the book after seeing the description/blurb; very glad I did. Best of a great group. That said, I hope there will be more of Zoe & Sarah...if there is a downside to any of these books- & that's a big "if"- it's the lack of a firm resolution. They're not cookie cutter cliffhangers, to be sure, but one is left wanting more. Mark of a good author, actor, showman, magician, etc....well, yes. I do want more. Thank you, Mick Herron.
