Queen of psychological crime Sophie Hannah returns with a chilling new Culver Valley crime novel.
A killer that the police are calling "Billy Dead Mates" is murdering pairs of best friends one by one. Before they die, each victim is given a small white book....
For months detectives have failed to catch Billy or work out what the white books mean. And then a woman, scared by what she's seen on the news, comes forward. Stand-up comedian Kim Tribbeck has one of Billy's peculiar little books. A stranger gave it to her at a gig she did a year ago. Was he Billy, and does he want to kill her? Kim has no friends and trusts no one. How - and why - could she possibly be Billy Dead Mates' next target?

I think I liked it - but not sure!
This audiobook is going to require at least another listening before I can make up my mind whether I enjoyed it or not - up until halfway through I found the number of characters (particularly in the police) and the story hard to follow. One of the downsides of audiobooks is you can't flick back a page or two to remind you who's who. During the second half once I figured things out - I enjoyed the story and the narration. The writing was descriptive and making the lead character quite un-likeable was an interesting choice. The plot left a lot of unanswered questions.Such as what happened with Kim's ex-husband and what the point of the sub plot with Charlie and her sister was, or what happened to Sondra.
I'd read another book by the author, but perhaps not audio book
I found this book because I really enjoyed Julia Barrie's narration of I Let You Go.
Ludicrous plot saved by humour.
