In this audiobook, you'll follow the thrilling investigations of police partners D.I. Tom Calladine and D.S. Ruth Bayliss as they battle an unlikely serial killer with a deadly bucket list of victims.

A Meticulous and Unique Killer

What sets 'Dead List' apart from other crime novels is the meticulous planning and uniqueness of each murder. The murderer leaves a tarot card at the scene of each crime, leaving the police team perplexed and desperate to uncover the killer's motive. As the body count rises, the stakes are raised even further when two children go missing in the local area.

A Race Against Time

With time running out, Calladine and Bayliss must use all their skills and resources to track down the killer and put an end to the carnage. As they delve deeper into the investigation, they uncover shocking new information about Calladine's complicated family background. Additionally, Ruth has some surprising news for her partner, adding another layer of complexity to their professional and personal lives.

A New Player in the Game

Adding to the tension is the arrival of a new detective, Stephen Greco, who sparks a sense of competition with Calladine. With a new detective on the scene, the dynamics of the team are tested as they race against the clock to catch the killer.

Meet the Detectives

Tom Calladine is a dedicated and determined detective inspector who is fully committed to his job. However, his personal life has not been as successful, having been divorced at a young age. On the other hand, Ruth Bayliss is a loyal and plain-speaking detective sergeant in her mid-30s. Despite her demanding workload, she yearns for more time for the gym and a love life, using work as an excuse to avoid putting too much effort into dating. Her passion outside of work is birdwatching.

A Dark and Gritty Setting

The series is set in the fictional village of Leesdon, located on the outskirts of a gritty industrial city in northern England. The area is plagued by crime, with little work available for its residents. Calladine's constant headache is the Hobfield housing estate, which epitomizes the issues faced by the community he calls home.

If you enjoy the works of crime fiction authors such as Angela Marsons, Rachel Abbott, Mel Sherratt, Ruth Rendell, and Mark Billingham, then 'Dead List' is a must-read. Helen H. Durrant's writing will keep you engaged from start to finish, with its fast-paced plot, well-developed characters, and unexpected twists and turns.
