Publisher's Summary

Brought to you by Penguin. 

You wake up. You can't remember what happened. The man lying next to you is not your husband. And he's not breathing....

The gripping third thriller starring DCI Jonah Sheens, from the author of Richard and Judy pick and Sunday Times best seller She Lies in Wait.

Louise wakes up. Her head aches, her mouth is dry, her memory is fuzzy. But she suspects she's done something bad.

She rolls over towards her husband, Niall. The man who, until recently, made her feel loved.

But it's not Niall who's lying beside her. In fact, she's never seen this man before.

And he's dead....

As Louise desperately struggles to piece her memories back together, it's clear to Detective Jonah Sheens and his team that she is their prime suspect - though they soon find she's not the only one with something to hide.

Did she do it? And if not, can they catch the real killer before they strike again?

Brilliant full of suspense series

This is the third instalment in the excellent well written series that centres around detective Jonah Sheens and his colleagues. Wonderful characters with a lot of twist and suspense. Superb narration. I can’t wait for the next in the series.

Stunning as usual

I love Gytha Lodge’s books. This is no exception. Full of twists and loveable characters. Excited for the next chapter in Detective Sheen’s life that was teased at the end of this book!

Keeps you guessing!

I have read the 3 books in the series and loved them all but I think this is my favourite. Would make a great TV drama.

Another great read

I did enjoy this book but didn’t find it quite as gripping as the other books in the series. The story was a bit implausible I felt and little errors referring to Michelle as Jonahs ex wife and getting the name of the forensic scientist wrong ( Janet McCulloch instead of Linda) make me think that boom had been written hurriedly without adequate proof reading. I did enjoy but felt is is a four star listen rather than the five stars that I gave the previous two.

More twists and turns than a roller coaster

I’ve enjoyed all of Gytha’s books but this is definitely the best. Great story and enjoyed getting to know the main characters a bit more.
Would recommend to someone looking for good crime book. You also don’t need to have read the other books.

A good listen

I really enjoyed this book and the narrators were terrific. I’ve dropped a star because towards the end it seemed a bit drawn out and the plot somewhat convoluted. However, I certainly recommend — overall a good listen.

Gripping! Gytha kept me guessing right til the end

Having listened to the other booked in the series recently I was delighted to hear that another one was soon to be available. With every read I'm instantly taken in - whether I'm running/driving/baking/walking + listening it's always such a pleasure to drive deep and discover a new and exciting plot. Just when you think you've worked out who the killer is, there's another twist and turn and you're guessing again. Totally gripped right til the last sentence, and I didn't want it to end!
