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.

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.

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.

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.

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.

No cliff hanger!

If you like a mystery that you can solve immediately and the good guys struggle with for another 9 hours, you’ll like this book. The author beats you over the head with the obvious conclusion for most of the book, but our intrepid heroes can’t figure it out until the last few pages. Pretty irritating.

Please put more of Nicks' books on audio!!!!

Kept my interest and great narrator.
Didn't want book to end.

Especially when I noted that none of his other books on audio!!! Just when I find a mystery writer I like audible disappoints!!!
