Overview

All it took was one small item on the regional news for Kimberly Guyver and Rachel Golinski to know that their old life was catching up with them. They wondered how they'd been naive enough to htink it wouldn't. They hoped they still had a chance to leave it behind—just one more time—but within hours, Rachel's home is burning and Kimberly's young son, Riley, is missing.

DC Gary Goodhew begins to sift through their lives, and starts to uncover an unsettling picture of deceit, murder and accelerating danger. Kimberly seems distraught but also defensive and uncooperative. Is it fear and mistrust of the police that are putting her son at risk, or darker motivations?

With Riley's life in peril, Goodhew needs Kimberly to make choices, but she has to understand that the one thing she cannot afford is another mistake.

Editorial Reviews

Publishers Weekly
Cambridge Det. Constable Gary Goodhew runs into a crisis while off-duty in Bruce's solid sequel to 2009's Cambridge Blue. In the midst of a pub crawl with a mate, Goodhew smells fire and rushes to the scene, only to find the flames too intense to allow him to enter the burning house where Kimberly Guyver's two-year-old son, Riley, is believed trapped, along with Rachel Golinski, the friend the boy's mother left in charge of him. While the authorities soon discover Golinski's corpse among the building's charred wreckage, Bruce lets the reader know that Riley is being held captive. The plot has the requisite twists and stock situations, notably a dark secret Guyver and Golinski share that's somehow connected to the disappearance of a man whose corpse turns up in Spain at the book's outset, but Bruce's superior prose elevates this above many other contemporary British police procedurals. (Oct.)
Library Journal
The discovery of the body of a missing man in Spain sets in motion events leading to the fiery death of a woman and the disappearance of a two-year-old boy in Cambridge, England. While on an off-duty pub crawl with a friend, DC Gary Goodhew (Cambridge Blue) comes across a burning house where Kimberly Guyver's son, Riley, is believed trapped along with Rachel Golinski, the friend left in charge of the boy. Golinski's corpse is found in the charred ruins, Riley is missing, and Kimberly is uncooperative. VERDICT In this complex and convoluted tale of jealousy and violence, Goodhew still goes his own way and slowly puts the pieces of the puzzle together, resulting in an unexpected conclusion. Fans of Mo Hayder and John Harvey will be pleased to discover a new author.
Kirkus Reviews

Cambridge DC Gary Goodhew (Cambridge Blue, 2008) must deal with arson, kidnapping, murder and worse.

Three years after Nicholas Lewton disappeared from his job at the Celeste pub with a sizable sum belonging to his father, Celeste owner Dougie Lewton, Nick's car turns up in a stretch of the Mediterranean off Cartagena. His body is recovered as well, but not the money. The discovery sends his former girlfriend, painter Kimberly Guyver, into a panic. She and her oldest friend, Rachel Golinski, are soon plotting some obscure damage control that requires sending Kim's two-year-old son Riley to stay with Rachel. Whatever their plan is, it either doesn't work out or requires extreme measures, for very shortly thereafter Rachel's house is burned down with her inside, obliterating every trace of Riley, who's vanished along with Rachel's violently inclined husband Stefan. It's obvious that plenty of locals, from Kim to Mule, the Celeste cook Stefan beat up before he vanished, know more than they're telling Goodhew and the other police investigators. And at least one concerned party—Kim's ex-lover Jay Andrews, Riley's father, whose attacker years ago left him with a brain injury that rendered him mute—knows more than he's physically capable of telling. But it's much less obvious how the pieces of the puzzle are connected, or whether the police at Parkside Station, whose relationships seem scarcely less dysfunctional than those of the suspects, are in any position to fit them together.

A satisfyingly meaty procedural for readers willing to fill in the blanks left by Bruce's elliptical narration.
