Wow, I have just finished this book, it was brilliant. Both the book and the narration had me progressively more and more glued to the story as I got increasingly involved in events.
Anna is a news correspondent who has risen through the ranks of reporters to the job of reading the lunch time news bulletin on the BBC. It's job she loves and she puts her heart and soul into it, hiding away from a much less happy personal life.
Her ex-husband, DCI Jack Harper, is called to investigate a murder in sleepy Blackdown and Anna becomes involved when her dream job unexpectedly goes back to its previous incumbent and Anna finds herself back as a reporter.
The narrative follows the interactions between this estranged couple, while simultaneously twisting and turning around the mystery they are both trying to unravel. And twisting and turning it certainly does, until we end up suspecting everyone and no-one seems completely innocent..
As an audiobook we were treated to a male narrator, the wonderful Richard Armitage, to narrate Jack's voice, and Stephanie Racine, who did and excellent job as Anna. There is also a distorted voice representing the killer.
All in all I highly recommend this book as an audio and I'm definitely going to go back and investigate the author's earlier work.
