Publisher's Summary

When your life is a lie, who can you trust?
When Maggie Taylor accepts a new job in Manchester, she is sure it is the right move for her family. The children have settled well, although her husband, Duncan, doesn't appear to be so convinced. But nothing prepares her for the shock of coming home from work one night to find that Duncan has disappeared, leaving their young children alone. His phone is dead, and she has no idea where he has gone or why. And then she discovers she's not the only one looking for him.
When a woman who looks just like Maggie is brutally murdered and DCI Tom Douglas is brought in to investigate, Maggie realises how little she knows about Duncan's past. Is he the man she loves? Who is he running from?
She doesn't have long to decide whether to trust him or betray him. Because one thing has been made clear to Maggie - another woman will die soon, and it might be her.

A Smooth and Classy Thriller

Another classy, smooth thriller from Rachel Abbott. This one follows the incidence of a set of murders mimicking a similar series from a dozen years ago. Linking the two is DCI Tom Douglas of course and compared to the previous book in the series, Stranger Child, he is more prominent. It reads much more like a police drama as a result. Still though Abbott’s skill in gradually building the pressure and stress on her female lead Maggie is the key to the book. The increasing fear and paranoia result in both her and Douglas feeling the heat with the story cleverly entwining someone close to the policeman as well.

The narration of the story is very well handled by Lisa Coleman as it twists and turns its way to what I thought was an impressive conclusion. Who could anyone trust? Why were these strange and horrifying events occurring? Who was manipulating those events? Both Maggie and Tom get a thorough testing and emerge as strong characters with a varied and well detailed supporting cast. The reveals and twists that brought the novel to and end were very satisfying.

In short this is a smooth, well written and intelligent thriller. Although it’s a series I think it would still be very satisfying taken alone. A strong story and very, very well worth a credit.
