Donna Langford has spent ten years in prison for organising her husband's murder. When her daughter goes missing, Donna believes there can only be one man responsible. DI Tom Thorne worked on the Alan Langford case, so he refuses to believe that the man whose body was found in a burned-out car can still be alive. But when a prison inmate that he and Anna interview is viciously murdered, Thorne starts to understand that Langford is not only alive, but ready to get rid of anyone who could threaten his comfortable new life in Spain.

Really like the character (Thorne) but the plot was not as good as I would have liked

Too slow. I think it's a bit overrated. It does build central charecters better than most crime novels, but the pace is too slow and the suspense is not gripping enough.

Highly recommend this series starring DI Tom Thorne. It has won numerous awards.
There is a cast of core characters that return with lots of new faces (& criminals) thrown in to keep it fresh & interesting.
Although each can be enjoyed as a stand alone book, there are periodic references to past people & events to reward the faithful reader.
