Publisher's Summary

Young girls are disappearing around the country, and there is nothing to connect them to one another. Dr Tony Hill sets his team an exercise: they are given the details and asked to discover links between the cases. Only one officer comes up with a theory that is ridiculed….until one of their own is murdered.
For Tony Hill, the murder becomes a matter for personal revenge, and joined by colleague Carol Jordan, he embarks a game where hunter and hunted can all too easily be reversed.

What would the police force do without Tony Hill

What drew me to listening to an audio of Wire in the Blood was my love of the TV series starring Robson Green. I recently read one of Val Dermid’s books, which made me want to download more in the series. I hated the narrator and it took me some time to focus on the story, Saul Reichlin voice is too old and perhaps a little like he is doing a stage play; his female voices are meek and irritating. The story line in the beginning is a little too detailed however builds so you don't want to stop listening, however both in this book and the one I read it in somewhat fizzles out. However on saying that worth a listen and I will be listening to more in the series, unfortunately they appear to all be narrated by Saul Reichlin.

Wire in the Blood

Gripping novel. Impossible to stop listening. I've been an audible member for years and this is in the top five of my audible downloads. Thankfully, with my iPhone and headphones I can still listen while working at mind-numbing chores around the house or listen while driving so little things like paid work and sleep don't slow me down too much!

Review

Narrator's character accents were awful, everyone seemed to be Scottish and all females sounded the same. Difficult to tell the different characters apart.
