Publisher's Summary

Identical and brutal assaults on three women. One woman survives to give a detailed description of her attacker. 

The police arrest a suspect, Damon Morton, confident he is their man. But three of his employees admit to the crimes, and Morton's wife and girlfriend provide him with an alibi.

They all declare Damon Morton innocent. The police know he did it. But if people lie under oath in a court of law ­- who can the jury believe?

Loving this series

I have always loved Lynda's books. Even better on Audible. Went through Trial and Retribution in one day. Then straight onto Retribution 2. I ordered the rest of the series in one go.
Just brilliant. Will spend the rest of my time unwell and in bed working my way through them all.

Gripping

But deeply frustrating. The main villain is a very disturbing individual who really needed a visit from Dexter Morgan.

Please read below

I'm going to do a review for the series as a whole and post it for each book, this is because I feel that the further along the series and especially the last book are mostly about the private lives of the detectives rather than the crimes themselves.

I do feel that of all the series of Linda La Plante's that I've read/watched this is probably the weakest as far as story and character development go.

The character of Mike Walker is not someone I like, yes he may get the job done, but he really is a dinosaur, and frankly I don't think he is that good of a detective. He guesses a lot or plays a hunch, which by luck has been proved correct, so often no more follow up is done once a case has either had a confession or thought to be proved. Finding evidence whilst the case is going through trial seems really far fetched to me and also not professional.

The character of Pat North has a lot of potential, she should have stayed well away from getting involved in a relationship with Mike Walker, and frankly that whole scenario is completely unnecessary.

The Detective Sargent character of Dave Satchwell starts off predictable, seems to move forward, and then de-evolves by the last book.

How much of all of this is due to the fact that the author was writing for television, rather than writing a "book" I don't know, but the story does seem to suffer because of it.

I won't be revisiting the tv series, and I doubt very much that I will listen to the books again.

Gripping

I found the second book in this series as brilliant as the first and will be moving on to the third next. The narrator is brilliant easy to listen to and makes all the characters recognizable. Did not anticipate the twist at the end. Highly recommend.

Superb

Rediscovering Lynda Is Plante after watching her stories on tv in years gone by! Absolutely love the audible narration of them! She writes so well you can see everything in your minds eye. And Colin Made is excellent!
Got through T&R 1 and T&R 2 in one weekend! On to T&R 3 next! Done all the Widows too! Bliss!

Not bad

An interesting book though I did wonder how much of the gore was gratuitous. I would consider getting another in the series.
