Publisher's Summary

A gripping thriller with a dark secret at its heart.
Pools of blood, scenes of carnage, signs of agonising death - who deals with the aftermath of violence once the bodies have been taken away? Judith Kepler has seen it all. She is a crime-scene specialist. She turns crime scenes back into habitable spaces. She is a cleaner. It is at the home of a woman who has been brutally murdered that she is suddenly confronted with her own past. The murder victim knew Judith's secret: as a child Judith was sent to an orphanage under mysterious circumstances - parentage unknown. And the East German secret police were always there, in the background...When Judith begins to ask questions, she becomes the target of some powerful enemies. Nothing will ever be the same again.

Reader was very distracting

Imogen Church has a truly perfect voice when she's simply reading, which I wish she would do. Unfortunately, she is almost always overly dramatic - using strange emphasis almost every other word! She has a terrific knack for accents - her American accent was pretty perfect - but her male characters are cartoonish doofuses, which I don't think is the intention of the author. I was really disappointed by her performance, and I think it threw off my ability to listen fairly to the actual content of the story.

Not what I expected.

Took a while to get going, but an interesting book in the end. Not my usual read, but I would be interested in reading other titles by this author.

Captivating and intriguing at every turn

Wow, what a fascinating story. I was soo captivated and engrossed with this story I would double back on chapters just to make sure I was hearing the storyline correctly. A captivating story that left you on the edge of your seat. A story about an innocent girl with a troubled past, who finds out her life is not as she knows it to be, and the journey she embarks to find out who, how, why & where it all went wrong..... I loved this story and could easily listen to it again!!
