Overview

Four a.m. on a wet stretch of the highway: a driver skids out of control. Quickly arriving on the scene, detective Kate Daniels and her partner, Hank Gormley, witness a horrifying display of carnage and mayhem that proves to be one of the worst traffic accidents in Northumberland’s history. But as the casualties mount, they soon realize that not all of the deaths occurred as a result of the accident …

At the same time, on the other side of town, a house goes up in flames and its two inhabitants become charred corpses. Except for the timing, there is no evidence to connect this incident with the traffic accident. But it soon becomes apparent that all is not what it seems, and that Kate and her colleagues are always one step behind a ruthless killer who will stop at nothing to get what he wants.

    Worth reading right to the end. Every mystery buff should read this one.

    Ms. Hannah certainly knows her subject, and has an uncanny way of putting the reader right in the middle of the plot.
    I really look forward to reading her next narrative.

    Okay read

    I enjoyed this book overall. A bit slow to start off, but about the time I was ready to call it quits, it got intetesting. Good plot snd flow. Characters well developed and intriguing. A bit difficult to follow the dialect slang for this American reader, though.

    Typically British, could be a PBS mystery.

    Good read; however, it takes awhile to get into the unfamiliar rhythm of the jargon. I enjoyed the story plot.

    Very good story, well drawn characters, well written, etc, but heavy UK back street slang plus UK police jargon had me rereading several scenes and I'm sure I missed clues because there were words or phrases I just didn't understand.  But all in all, I enjoyed it and would likely read another by this author.

    First time ready from this author, and was really looking forward to reading this book based on the summary and the reviews. However, I'm having a really hard time getting started. To me it seems somewhat disorganized and difficult to follow.
