John Marrs can be considered as one of the masters when it comes to writing suspense stories as his novels are always well equipped by mysterious happening like kidnappings and murders that shock us all of a sudden. We always wait for the element of surprise that has been the sign of a writer’s pure genius throughout his work.
The plot this time is also a strong one and the whole pieces of the story are well-tailored together and we as readers cannot skip a single scene if we want to understand the story to its fullest.
The story is a murder mystery for which DS Becca tries to find clues but this time she fails in each attempt as the criminal is a skilled one who takes calculated steps and calculated risks with no leads of any sort for the investigators.
Becca takes the help of Joe Russell even who himself is an expert in murder crimes but both of them feel it tough this time to catch the murderer as each crime scene appears to be arranged and it appears as someone makes the leads or clues disappear from the crime scene after committing the crime.
The plans of the murderer are leak-proof and both our investigators finally meet their match for the first time as they acknowledge that they have confronted a master criminal for the first time in their career. Elizabeth Knowelden narrates the story at a slow speed at first but toward the middle, the narrator has adjusted her voice well with the situation and the demand of the story.
The scenes are most of the time tense but are well written and narrated throughout. Seveneves – Neal Stephenson, The Last Man – Vince Flynn and Absolute Proof – Peter James are good reads for listening to the novels with interesting stories.
