The icy rain sprayed across the lake in shards of sharp splinters. Kaye's skin smarted and dribbles of water slid inside her clothes. She was gagged and bound. And the only person who knew where to find her wasn't coming back...Fifty miles away in Cambridge town centre a deeply disturbed young woman is standing by a payphone. She knows she often feels compelled to do harmful things and is driven by a desire to make a call. DC Gary Goodhew is one of the detectives assigned to find Kaye and when her body is discovered the only clue to the potential murderer is a woman's voice on his answerphone saying, 'Kaye isn't the first and won't be the last...'

Publishers Weekly, 2011-06-13 In Bruce's so-so third contemporary procedural featuring Cambridge Det. Constable Gary Goodhew (after 2010's The Siren), Goodhew looks into a missing persons case. Kaye Whiting vanished while shopping for a present for her mother's 80th birthday. An early chapter reveals a suffering Whiting, bound and gagged on the shore of a lake, after she accepted a ride from the wrong familiar face. The following day, a fellow police officer, Sue Gully, fields an anonymous call from someone who ominously states that when the police find Whiting, they'll realize that she was still alive at the time of this call. The informant goes on to accuse insurance company employee Peter Walsh of being responsible for the disappearance, and states that arresting him will stop "the killings." Some overheated prose ("But it was then that a cold, hard sabre of guilt unsheathed itself and sliced its steel blade into her conscience") doesn't enhance the overly familiar plot. (Aug.)
