The young girl you have found isn't the first experiment I've carried out. She won't be the last.
A tense, unpredictable crime debut that will not only have you gripped, but will chill you to the bone. Perfect for fans of Stuart MacBride and Mark Billingham.

When it becomes apparent that each victim has ties to the City of Liverpool University, DI David Murphy and DS Laura Rossi realise they're chasing a killer unlike any they've hunted before - one who doesn't just want his victims' bodies, but wants their minds too.
With a series of psychological twists Dead Gone will keep you guessing until the very end.

A very enjoyable read.

An emotive story line that immediately grabs the readers attention.
I found this book very easy to read and the story moved on quickly and I found I couldn't put it down. I loved the Liverpool link and the references to places and street names in the city.
Jonathan Keeble gives a sterling performance despite some rocky Scouse accents..

An very enjoyable and easy read. I look forward to more.

Excellent, but gruesome!

Any additional comments?

This is an excellent thriller. I genuinely couldn't put it down, and many other things in life went by the way side, as I listened hour after hour.
