Stephen Bryan, a gay academic, is found brutally murdered in his bathroom. Will Grayson and Helen Walker, police detectives investigating the case, at first assume that his death is the result of an ill-judged sexual encounter.

But doubts are soon raised. Bryan's laptop has gone missing - could the murder be connected to a biography he was writing on the life and mysterious death of 50s screen legend Stella Leonard? Convinced there's a link, Bryan's sister Lesley sets out to prove that Bryan had uncovered a dangerous truth.

But soon both Lesley and Helen Walker find themselves victims of the violence that swirls around them, as gradually the investigation uncovers the secrets of a family corrupted by lust, wealth and power. Download and start listening now!

    " Started off fantastically well. It had me captivated, but the ending seemed to be incredibly rushed. Almost as if Mr. Harvey had ran out of time! "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Lisa | 12/14/2013

    " This was the the hardest book to get into. Not that it was interesting it just seemed to take for ever. I spend well over a week reading it and just didn't really feel the need to read it. So rather blah - but yet good twists and turns. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Kathleen Dixon | 11/19/2013

    " I enjoyed reading this book - quite a nice lot of intrigue and wondering whodunnit - but I didn't enjoy it as much as I expected to from the review I'd read. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Ice Bear | 10/8/2013

    " An enjoyable light read, assisted by the context of Cambridge. The plots all got wrapped up very quickly at the end, although the end was never really in doubt. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Rita | 9/5/2013

    " Different to read about places in Nottingham (my home town) but too much detail about the Detective's lives & not enough about the crime. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Mackay | 6/27/2013

    " The characters are a little 2 dimensional, but the story is good - a police procedural set in Cambridge, England. A recommendation from my friend Suzanne. She said it was like Reginald Hill. I like him better, but in a pinch... "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Patrick | 12/20/2012

    " I was not immediately taken by Mr. Harvey's book. It took a couple chapters before the characters and the srory line really strted to grow on me. Somewhere in the middle of reading a chpter I was hooked and it was hard me to put it down. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 MaryAnn | 4/22/2012

    " Another good police procedural mystery/suspense from this author. "

    " A solid British mystery. "

    " it wasnt the best john harvey i've read, the charlie resnick novels are much more captivating "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Sherry Chandler | 6/14/2011

    " I like John Harvey, especially his Charlie Resnick series but I found this one was a slow start. Still highly readable and I got interested about half way in. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Jen | 5/12/2011

    " Bit pedestrian as a thriller. Wondered why the plot was muddied with red herrings which didn't really add much to the story to increase the suspense. "

    " Not too bad but not as good as the "Elder" or "Resnick" series. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Wyma | 12/14/2010

    " Very different from Harvey's lone man police procedurals. Two detective who are partners have almost equal weight in this one. The cast is well rounded, contemporary, reminding one of George or James or Rendell. Like all of his novels, I didn't want it to end. "
