Publisher's Summary

Victim: male. Mid-30s. Five foot seven. Cause of death: hanging. Initial impression - murder. ID: Mickey Doyle. Suspected terrorist and member of the Mayday Five.
The officers at the crime scene know exactly who the victim is. Doyle was one of five suspected bombers who caused the deaths of 16 people. The remaining four are also missing, and when a second body is found, decapitated, it's clear they are being killed by the same methods their victims suffered.
Forensic psychologist Paula Maguire is assigned the case, but she is up against the clock - both personally and professionally. With moral boundaries blurred between victim and perpetrator, will Paula be able to find those responsible? After all, even killers deserve justice, don't they?

Poor recording

Enjoyed book Wish One and two were available. Poor recording. Skipped frequently. Actually missed a whole part. Not like a hard copy where you can leaf through and find what you missed.

A good one

I stumbled into this one. The publisher's blurb did not prepare my for the depths of collateral damage left by old murders and the echoes of those deaths. This book caught my ignorant self and did not let go until I saw the ravages of The Troubles in Ireland. I could not put it down. I thought of people all over the world who live with loss from bombs and killings.
