Publisher's Summary

Criminologist Martin Knight lives a gilded life and is a thorn in the side of the police. But then his wife, Liz, goes missing. There is no good explanation and no sign of Martin.... To make things worse, Liz is the ex-girlfriend of DCI Craig Gillard, who is drawn into the investigation. 

Is it just a missing person or something worse? And what relevance do the events around the shocking Girl F case, so taken up by Knight, have to do with the present? The truth is darker than you could ever have imagined.

intriguing

Twists, turns and well done. The further I got into the story the harder to leave it.

I'm hooked on police detective novels

this story added to my list of must-reads that my friends and I often exchange. the narrator is quite talented with voices, and that added to the experience.
I will be listening to his others works with anticipation.

Exceptional

I listen to many British police procedurals and this is one of the best. From the research to the narration, you won’t be disappointed.

Finally! An extraordinary murder mystery after recent disappointments

Wow! An exhilarating thriller incorporates two murder cases with a twisted ending I never expected, though a bit over-the-top at the very end. Looking forward to the next book in this series. Great writing and narration! Recommended. You won’t be sorry; well worth the credit.

Excellent Police Procedural/Mystery

I read dozens of mysteries a year, and this is one of the best I have read in years. The characters are well fleshed out and compelling. The plot is a superb whodoneit. And the narrator is perfect.

WORTH THE PURCHASE

Even though the listener to the audiobook "The Body in the Marsh" figures out who done it fairly quickly, the how and why remain a mystery until the end. An intricate plot and great narration make this an excellent listen.

One of the best I've "read" in a while!

This was a great listen! The characters were interesting and the police procedures detailed but believable. The plot kept me guessing, although I did figure it out before all was revealed in the book. I highly recommend.

heaven save me from middle aged men

Typical of older Male authors the younger woman finds the older man attractive versus safe provider. Without the blight it possibly would have rated better. it might have been better

Brilliant

First time I’ve read this author and I can’t wait for more now. I hope there are more Gillard books. This one kept me guessing til nearly the end which I loved. Very cleverly written plot and the narrator is great.

So cliche-ridden, I couldn't continue

I tried to get past the self-consciously "literary" descriptions and unnecessarily flowery language, but the cliches...I just couldn't do it. In the very first chapter (minor spoilers) we get a hunky hero rescuing a beautiful (because of course she is!) woman, and then they end up going out (does she even go see a doctor for that serious injury before they hit the bar?), and she looks in the mirror so the author can describe her beauty and her "raven hair." An author in the 21st century actually used the phrase "raven hair" unironically! I just couldn't go on from there.

Extremely well written

This is not normally my "gendre" . However, it is so well written. So realistic on the UK part that I praise this author for all his hard work ! A lot of time and sacrifice goes into writing and having you book published. Thank you.
