THE SOUND OF CRYING
John and Helen Kramer are an average married couple living in rural Cambridgeshire, until their four-year-old twins, Edward and Jamie, are kidnapped and brutally murdered. Just when it seems that the Kramers can see retribution in court, the killer’s lawyer leaves the judge with no choice but to throw the case out due to two technicalities and a cluster of police procedural errors. The final nail in the Kramer boys’ coffins is the fact that their killer is a local priest.
John Kramer tries desperately to move forward with his life, but his wife, Helen, cannot, not until she avenges the deaths of her beloved boys.
DS Rhodes of Cambridgeshire CID soon discovers that this is not a regular kidnapping/murder case and all is not what it appears to be.
Helen Kramer has dropped off the grid and is nowhere to be found and the priest is as free as a bird, and alive, but for how long?
What ensues is a deadly game of cat and mouse between Helen Kramer, the police and the priest. Can DS Rhodes unravel the truth and find Helen Kramer before she unleashes her own special brand of punishment on her boys’ killer?
Could you forgive the man who killed your children?
