Publisher's Summary

Murder. Money. Revenge.
Outwardly, Ben Stephens appears to be a normal, hardworking family man. In reality his life has been in turmoil since the murder of his wife, Alice, seven years ago. The killer was never caught. Now remarried - to the woman he was having an affair with while still married to Alice - Ben's life is once again spiraling out of control, and he's become heavily indebted to an unscrupulous criminal who is baying for Ben's blood.
When Ben's estranged twin sister, a police detective, unexpectedly returns to his life, asking too many questions for comfort, it becomes clear that without action, Ben's life will soon reach a crisis point from which there will be no return. In order to avoid falling further into the mire, Ben must examine the past if he is to survive the present - but just how much pressure can one man take before he breaks?
Dark Fragments is a fast-paced thriller with a blend of mystery, suspense and action that will appeal to listeners of psychological thrillers as well as a broad section of crime, thriller and action fans.

Great story, brilliant narrator

I listened to the audio book version of this novel and liked it a lot! The narrator is brilliant; he really nailed Ben's character and made listening to the story very enjoyable.
Ben, on the other hand, doesn't have many enjoyable moments nowadays. His life has been a roller-coaster ride since his wife was brutally murdered and he seems to be going downhill pretty fast. He feels like the whole world is out to get him and it's up to him to seek revenge, sort things out and get his happy ending. Unfortunately for him though, life is not a fairy tale. As the story progresses we start to understand the reasons behind his questionable actions and way of thinking, however his character also becomes that much less likeable. His story is told through conversations with someone who encourages him to talk it through until we reach the end that you may or may not have guessed.
All in all, it's a great book, fast paced, interesting and I would definitely recommend reading/listening to it.

Fallen off the edge of my seat!

I enjoyed every part of this book!
The story was full of twist & turns, you'll never guess what's going to happen next.
Exciting & interesting but realistic which I felt was a refreshing change when reading (listening too) a thriller.
The characters were fantastic & the narration brought all of them to life. I'll definitely look out for this Matt Bates in the future.
Just about to look for another book by Rob!!
