Publisher's Summary

There's the lost. There's the missing. And there's the taken.
She asked me once if we had any secrets, and I shook my head.
'No secrets between us', she said.
'No' I answered. 'Never ever.'
In a Durham hotel at dawn, celebrated preacher Tristan Snow is murdered as he prays. None of the other guests - not even his daughter, his wife, or her sister - saw or heard anything. But then again, they each had a motive for murder.
Detective Inspector Erica Martin is confronted by secrets and lies, lost in a case where nothing is what it seems. With no answers, DI Martin is consumed by questions: is anyone in this family innocent? When the victim might have been a monster, is there such a thing as justice? And does anyone deserve to die?

Not as great as first book but ok

Overall, I think this is good but the story line was too unpleasant for me. As a matter of personal preference, I dislike pastor/church/religious crime stories because it is not my kind of plot. The story moves a bit slow and characters are devious and ugly. The air throughout the story is heavy and stiffling. Alice Clark-Platts is a great author and her writing is excellent, the pace of her stories is well executed. I love the main characters in the series.
