Strange to think of a historical novel set in 60's England, but Goodall does an excellent job of recreating the feel of a time and place. A serial killer (and yes, the term was actually coined in England way before it became popular in the US) is recreating works of art in blood and bone, but it is up to the Metropolitan Police to catch him.
I've tried to find other crime novels written by this author but have failed but I hope there are more to come.
The reader is excellent by the way.

This is an excellent, satisfying mystery, and it is expertly read. The author, Jane Goodall (not the primatologist of the same name)is a fresh voice and very successfully evokes London in the mid 60s. One minor complaint: The lyrics to the song "Turn, Tirn, Turn," feature prominently throughout the book, and are repeatedly attributed to Bob Dylan. The song is, of course, not by Dylan but by Pete Seeger. This would have been an easy thing to check and correct. Sloppy.

Really enjoyed this!! Gripping to the end and you get a real feel of the sixties. The only flaw is the narrators awful scottish accent.

One of the best mysteries I have read for a very long time, keeps you guessing right until the end.
Jane R Goodall is s fabulous story teller. Her characterisation is A1 . I could 'see' Briony, McCredey and Jimmy and worst of all the 'Walker'
I just couldn't stop listening even though I was almost scared witless.
Nicki Paull's narration does great service to the story and she brings the characters to life very effectively
This really is a Top Audible and one you can revisit in confidence knowing there will be aspects of the characters to be discovered and explored further with the revisiting...
