Sarah Broadhurst's view...

One of those lovely, psychological thrillers that harks back to an early case, digging up all sorts of surprises.  I cannot praise it enough.  It is the author’s fourth starring series character Jonathan Stride and it’s outstanding.  With twists at every turn to keep you totally hooked, it is almost impossible to put down.  Not to be missed.


Comparison: Jeffery Deaver, Michael Connelly, Dennis Lehane.

The Watcher Synopsis

The obvious suspect was a vagrant, who slipped through the hands of the police, including Stride's detective hero Roy. Now, though, Stride's looking at the case in a new light.
