Good story but odd ending

I was engaged with the characters but found the ending very sudden and inexplicable. Half of the significant characters are unaccounted for?!
This is the second of Matt Brolly’s novels I’ve listened to and the first also seemed to run out of steam with a dramatic ending not quite fulfilling its promise.
I think this novel needed an epilogue!

Brilliant

Fantastic narration by the wonderful David Monteath
Brilliant story and little gruesome in parts, lots of twists and great support characters who all add up to a really great read/listen.
Unfortunately the next two in the series are not yet available on Audible.

My opinion

Narrator was good, outcome was obvious about half way through book. Ending was abrupt and seemed unfinished

Better than other series

Much better than other series much more about the actual policing. Abrupt end didn’t tidy the bits and pieces for me but overall good story and David Monteith very good as usual as narrator. Will buy the next one
