3.5 out of 5 (1 rating)

Description

The murder of a family forces former policewoman Naomi Blake to face her past Victor Griffin seemed to be one of the good guys, but that didn't stop someone coming to his home and killing him and his wife.

The last act of Vic's life was to try and save his children: fifteen-month-old Jack, and his beloved stepdaughter, Sarah.

But why were Vic and his wife shot dead? Why is there no record of them before they came to live in Ferrymouth three years ago?

The one clue to their past is a business card, wedged between the pages of an almost empty address book.

A card with Naomi's name on it. Naomi and Alec find themselves drawn back to face events that happened when Naomi was still a serving police officer - just before the accident that blinded her - and which have now led to murder.

Suspenseful British police procedural; eighth book in the Naomi Blake mystery series. This is one of those few times where the reader would probably benefit well by reading the previous installments in the series. There were relationships hinted at that left one wondering how they may have evolved to this point in the story. This story also appears to be a pivotal launch for a possible new series. Detective Inspector Steel is certainly a more prominent investigator than former police officer, Naomi Blake. Blake is involved in the story by virtue of her previous interaction with one of the deceased. The small town of Ferryman prided itself on being a safe and quiet town. Four recent murders have left the town feeling not quite so safe and rather vulnerable. One of the murderers has yet to be brought to justice - a perfect beginning for a new series set in Ferryman, no?Synopsis:Victor Griffin seemed to be one of the good guys, but that didn't stop someone coming to his home and killing him and his wife.
