5.0 out of 5 stars A fast-paced, gripping crime novel 29 April 2010
By jtnorth
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
I've enjoyed all Lindsay Ashford's novels about Megan Rhys very much, but I think this is the most unusual and intriguing. In the claustrophobic and threatening setting of a prison, she sets up surely the ultimate locked room puzzle - how could a man have been murdered alone in his cell? But the book is more than a puzzle, it's a very rich and disturbing story of lost innocence and waste. I was also very intrigued by the character of the Prisoner Listener, a prisoner who also works as a counsellor for other prisoners.

A great read.

5.0 out of 5 stars Excellent 20 Dec. 2013
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
I bought this book as a Christmas present for my eldest granddaughter . She had requested it as one of her teachers recommended that she read it. It has not been unwrapped as yet, so I cannot really comment on it`s suitability, but the book`s wrapping and delivery was perfectly adequate.

3.0 out of 5 stars British mystery not quite up to author's other books 15 Jan. 2009
By Regina Kiser - Published on
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
This book is in part about boundaries, especially the boundaries in a relationship between therapist and client. I was disappointed that Doctor Megan Rhys fell inlove with her client(a man in prison). Their relationship is at the heart of this mystery. You have to accept some pretty big assumptions to see this book as believable such as the availability of relationship for therapist and prisoner, the belief that harden killers change into role models. The facts just did not ring true. I really enjoy Lindsay Asford, and I will read her again, but I won't spend a lot of money on her next book -
