The first deaths are just a warm-up...

A Buried Past.

When Deborah Fearnside, a young wife and mother, goes missing, police interest is minimal. She would hardly be the first woman to abandon a tired marriage. Four weeks later it is Detective Chief Inspector Andrew Fenwick, back from compassionate leave, who notices the set of coincidences that should have transformed a routine missing person's case into a suspected abduction. But by then it is too late for Debbie.

A Dark Secret.

Twenty years ago, a young woman fell tragically to her death. The only people with her were four schoolfriends. One--or maybe all of them--is responsible. Now there's someone intent on letting them have their just deserts.

A Bloody Revenge.

Fenwick is soon caught in a desperate race against time to find the murderer before he completes his brutal vendetta. As the death toll mounts, Fenwick stares failure in the face--unless he can draw the predator out of the shadows and into an unconventional and highly dangerous trap with the ultimate bait in Requiem Mass , a chilling Sussex mystery from Elizabeth Corley.

Praise for Requiem Mass :

"These characters are well drawn, especially Fenwick, and even the killer avoids clich#65533;. Boasting a very tense, superb ending, this second in a gritty new series (following Fatal Legacy , 2001) shows tremendous promise and is sure to appeal to fans of Tana French, Benjamin Black, and Tess Gerritsen." -- Booklist

Took a few chapters to get into, but once DC Fenwick gets involved, the story really takes off. Killer and Fenwick are both at times likeable and then not - in other words, human.

Starts well, ends badly. The more I learned of DCI Fenwick, the less I liked him.
