Publisher's Summary

From the author of ebook number one best seller and Sunday Times top 10 best seller After Anna.
A serial killer is stalking your hometown. He has a type: all his victims look the same. And they all look like you.
Kate returns from a post-break-up holiday with her girlfriends to news of a serial killer in her hometown - and his victims all look like her.
It could, of course, be a simple coincidence. Or maybe not. She becomes convinced she is being watched, followed even. Is she next? And could her mild-mannered ex-boyfriend really be a deranged murderer? Or is the truth something far more sinister?

So, so predictable

I stuck with this til the end despite having guessed the twist about an hour in. there's a way of introducing themes and characters related to a twist subtly and there there's this! absolutely no need to think about what's going on because all the elements of the twist are introduced so crudely. A lot of the dialogue is cringey (GI Joe and Harry Potter?!) I wouldn't bother with this one, so much better stuff on audible.

Painfully obvious but narrated well

If you like any aspect of a who done it then don't listen to this. The dialogue, characters and narration were good however there is only one suspect and the main character frustratingly misses the obvious for about 8 hours of this production. I would have given the narrator 5 stars (and would listen to her again) however she must have read the book and still agreed to continue with the project. This is the only audio book I've ever struggled to finish and not bothered to rewind when I fell asleep. I should have given up when the killer was revealed (I groaned aloud when I realised there was still 3.5 hours left). I gave 2 stars not 1 as I enjoyed the first couple of hours when there was still some potential. This could have been a good story and I could have tolerated the long winded ending if there was some element of surprise.

Thanks to the Audible pay monthly scheme I can get my credit back.
