Summary

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.
A serial killer is stalking the streets of Liverpool, gruesomely murdering victims as part of a series of infamous, unethical and deadly psychological experiments. 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.

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.

Another Cracking Good Read From This Author!

Having just finished listening to this book the first thing I did was look for another ! Unfortunately so far there are only two books but I shall certainly be on the lookout for any further offerings from this talented crime writer....it also helps that he uses the brilliant Johnathan Keeble to bring life to his excellent storyline! Bravo !
