Mass killer Cara Lindstrom is in the wind, after a deadly encounter which leaves FBI Special Agent Antara Singh questioning her own sanity and fitness to serve. ASAC Matthew Roarke exiles Singh to Portland to work as an assistant to his old mentor, retiring profiler Chuck Snyder—but a series of mysterious break-ins alerts Singh and Snyder to an active threat revolving around an old case: a series of brutal murders of homeless teenagers on the streets of Portland and Seattle.

EVERYONE KNOWS DAISY JONES AND THE SIX.
They sold out arenas from coast to coast.
Their music defined an era and every girl in America idolised Daisy.
But on July 12 1979, on the night of the final concert of the Aurora tour, they split. Nobody ever knew why. Until now.
This was something completely different for me. Daisy Jones & The Six features a fictional (although completely believable) 70s rock band, from the inception through to the split.

Jean Taylor’s life was blissfully ordinary. Nice house, nice husband. Glen was all she’d ever wanted: her Prince Charming.
Until he became that man accused, that monster on the front page. Jean was married to a man everyone thought capable of unimaginable evil.
But now Glen is dead and she’s alone for the first time, free to tell her story on her own terms.
There are three books in the Kate Waters series, which I didn’t realise at the time I purchased The Child (#2) so I’ve listened to them in completely the wrong order, finishing with the first story. The Widow is Fiona Barton’s debut and revolves around a missing two year old, Bella Elliott.
