One seemingly random accident leads to the unraveling of a whole tangled knot of lies, missing persons, and murder. Ruth and Sian are struggling big time with Sian signing own to a new department to get some space from Ruth. Before she leaves there's one more investigation to get through. Nick and Amanda are having challenges as all as Amanda appears to be suffering from post partem depression. All in all, the major players both are plagued with personal problems clamoring for their attention when what they really need took do is keep their eyes own the case before more people die.

It is amazing how many bad decisions are made by the characters in this series, especially DI Ruth Hunter. She obsesses over a lover who left her seven years ago, which ends up driving away her current lover. She and Sian both make idiotic decisions when dealing with religious fanatics, leading to tragedy. I enjoy the series but I’m starting to wonder how Ruth has kept her job for so long.

I've enjoyed this series until this book. As a SDA, Seventh Day Adventist, image my surprise to see a book that depicted my church in the manor of this book. The SEA church is nothing like what the author wrote and it saddens me to this that there are people that are not exposed to our church and will now believe this is typical. The author could have, and should have, come a better job in disassociating this "splinter" group from the real teachings of the church. He should have taken the time to research the religion that he was portraying to ensure his portrayal was accurate . I almost didn't continue reading the book after the first description that he gave, but then thought maybe he would redeem himself by stating what the SEA church would do when a group such as this formed and splintered from the church but he didn't, he continued to let his readers think this was normal for the church. Very disappointed in Mr. McCleave

I found this book to be very disappointing. If the author had stuck to just the mystery story line, it could have been a good read. However the writer has an outside agenda he wants you to swallow without question. It made the entire story repulsive. Certainly not what I wanted to read about. YUK.

Though Kate and Nick perform admirably, there is just something old hat about a religious zealot and her band of loyal followers armed to the teeth. Nick and Amanda are having problems due to post partum depression. Kate and Sian may/may not be a pair again. There is a huge conflagration. There is the discovery of buried bodies. A member of the team is lost. Kate takes another step, a dangerous one, to locate Sarah.

The core characters' story arcs continue to develop. That’s most significantly what keeps me reading these. But equally important, the crime stories are also really well-developed and always different. Some good "thought-provoking" moments and spot-on life-humor too.

It's becoming a habit with Ruth Hunter books, I end up getting to sleep very late as I have to finish it to see how it all ends. Again, this book did not disappoint. On to the next one! 5 stars (also again!)

Another great story from Simon McCleaveReviewed in the United Kingdom on November 23, 2020
This latest Ruth Hunter book really is a cracker. It has the usual characters and Simon McCleave weaves personal issues for all of them into the storyline while keeping it fast moving as it faces headlong to it's unexpected conclusion. I was saddened when I saw on the book's Amazon page that it was book 7 of 7 and I took this to mean that the series was finished, but was pleased to find at the end of the book that there will be another. I must stress that this book holds up well as a standalone story. Thank you Simon for another gem of a book.

PredictableReviewed in the United Kingdom on February 14, 2021
Having read all previous books in this series. I found this one the most predictable. I’m really beginning to get annoyed by Ruth’s obsession with finding Sarah her missing partner. One minute she’s so in love with Sian she’ll do anything to get her back. Tragically she’s dies and what does Ruth do well she doesn’t mourn Sian for long, she goes looking for Sarah again. !!!!!! How many more books is McCleave going to write before we read the end of this long running saga between Ruth and Sarah’s disappearance?

Didn't see that coming!Reviewed in the United Kingdom on November 25, 2020
I was looking forward to reading this book. I had it on pre order and it arrived yesterday. The most unfortunate thing is that I finished it in less than a day! The storyline is brilliant but there is a part that I didn't expect. If you're a regular reader I won't spoil it for you. If you're not you should start at the beginning and get hooked like I did.! You'll love this author.

The Solace Farm KillingsReviewed in the United Kingdom on February 5, 2021
A good story line with plenty of fast paced action. A religious retreat in North Wales is run by a religious zealot who believes Armageddon is coming and only her and her followers be saved. A battle ensues and justice is done. The characters have too many personal problems which fill up too much of the book. Too touchy feely for my taste. Sherlock Holmes cocaine habit never occupied a fraction of the stories that the leads in these books have written about. I also wonder whether the SAS would announce their arrival at a siege operation by flying around in a helicopter to reconnoitre when drones are far less noisy. Would the SAS go in with police? I think not. Too many holes in the narrative has made me give a worse rating than previous books in this series.

Unbelievably goodReviewed in the United Kingdom on November 22, 2020
Simon just gets better and better. This series really is amazing. Once you pick up this book, you will not want to put it down. I love the main characters in this book, feel as if I know them, they really have been through harrowing times, that is before this book! How Simon sets the plots is a miracle to me, just hope he keeps doing it. The fact that the last page is left on such a cliffhanger is screamingly good. Have pre ordered the next book, how am i going to wait until February!
