Audio Book Summary

Four murders. Two detectives. One mystifying crime.

On Christmas Eve, DCI Mackenzie Jones is called to a shooting at a remote farmhouse. Ralph Mallender believes his father lies dead inside. When three more bodies are discovered, it's clear a festive family gathering has turned into a gruesome tragedy.

At first it seems like an open and shut case: a murder suicide committed by Ralph's volatile brother Cameron. Then new evidence makes Mack suspect the man who reported the crime is in fact the perpetrator.

But Mack isn't the only one with a stake in the case. Private investigator Atticus Priest has been hired to get Ralph acquitted. That means unearthing any weaknesses in Mack's evidence.

Irascible, impatient, and unpredictable, Atticus has weaknesses of his own. Mack knows all about them because they share a past-both professionally and personally. This time round, however, they aren't on the same side. And as Atticus picks at the loose ends of the case, everything starts to unravel in a way neither of them could ever have predicted . . .

    Top notch crime fiction.. Atticus is the perfect oddball-intelligence-detective and I can’t wait for the next instalment! Narrator just as good as the content, match made in heaven m.

    Not bad, just mediocre. Overdone plot twist, classic cop procedural with a too-cool-to-stay-a-cop type main character.

    First time for me listening for author Mark Dawson. we were on a long car trip and it helped pass the time. It was a cliff hanger until right at the end and did not figure it out. Simon Vance did an excellent job as narrator and I immediately recognized his voice from Camilla Lackberg books.

    Very enjoyable book. The story was engaging even though it was predictable. The narrator was accomplished and entertaining. I would listen to a sequel.

    It was a fun, classic murder mystery to listen to. I can't believe that I guess one of the culprits in the first chapter but it was still interesting to read. And I enjoyed the narrator.
