Camilla Lackberg's The Preacher - on audio already

Normally there's a delay of a few months at least between the print book being released and the audio version of it being available. Not this time for The Preacher by Camilla Lackberg. Both were released earlier this month (and the audiobook is unabridged).

Synopsis: In the fishing community of Fjallbacka, life is remote, peaceful – and for some, tragically short. Foul play was always suspected in the disappearance twenty years ago of two young holidaymakers in the area. Now a young boy out playing has confirmed this grim truth. Their remains, discovered with those of a fresh victim, send the town into shock. Local detective Patrik Hedstrom, expecting a baby with his girlfriend Erica, can only imagine what it is like to lose a child. When a second young girl goes missing, Hedstrom's attention focuses on the Hults, a feuding clan of misfits, relgious fanatics and criminals. The suspect list is long but time is short – which of this family's dark secrets will provide the vital clue?

The RRP is £14.98 but amazon has it for £9.88 at the moment, only 14p dearer than the print version.
