Publisher's Summary

Forty years ago, in the dark of the playground, two children's lives were changed forever. 

Stella Darnell is a cleaner. But when she isn't tackling dust and dirt and restoring order to chaos, Stella solves murders. Her latest case concerns a man convicted of killing his mistress. His daughter thinks he's innocent, and needs Stella to prove it. 

As Stella sifts through piles of evidence and interview suspects, she discovers a link between the recent murder and a famous case from 40 years ago: the shocking death of six-year-old Sarah Ferris, killed in the shadows of an empty playground. 

Stella knows that dredging up the past can be dangerous. But as she pieces together the tragedy of what happened to Sarah, she is drawn into a story of jealousy, betrayal and the end of innocence. A story that has not yet reached its end....

Excellent

Excellent series starting with the detectives daughter. you really do need to listen to this series in the right order. I am hoping there is more to come although the epilogue suggested differently.

Thank you Lesley Thomas for providing many hours of pleasure.

Anna Bentinck was fabulous as the Narrator.

Excellent delivery of a good story

Lesley Thomson never fails to keep the story going. Always enjoyable and beautifully read by Anna Bentinck. To me she is Stella.
