"DCI Karen Pirie is back in a new police procedural narrated by the versatile Cathleen McCarron with a charming Scots accent. When a body with a bullet between the eyes is found among two long-buried historical motorcycles, a cold case warms up quickly. The only clues are a pair of Nikes and the fact that the body is at the storage site of stolen goods. At the same time, additional unsolved crimes from the 1980s begin to point towards a possible suspect with an uncommon car. McCarron navigates the listener through a series of twists and turns as DCI Pirie works to close historical crimes. V.B. Winner of AudioFile Earphones Award © AudioFile 2019, Portland, Maine"
