Publisher's Summary

He’s your attacker. 

He’s a murderer.

He’s your twin. 

When DI Dani Stephens returns to work after an attack that almost ended her life, she’s quickly plunged into a horrific new case, as dead bodies are discovered on the streets of Birmingham. 

But with no link between the victims, Dani has to get inside the killer’s mind - so turns to the murderer she knows best. Her own twin brother....

But what makes a psychopath? Can understanding her twin help her find a murderer who leaves no trace? As the circle closes on Dani, the clock is ticking and she needs a breakthrough - before she becomes the latest victim.

A heart-stopping crime thriller that fans of Peter James and Mark Billingham won’t be able to put down.

I’m not sure I can continue listening....

to this drivel. I’m half through and I want to puke. It angers me that I’ve spent my hard earned money on all the titles I’ve heard recently. Somebody please help me find a fictional read with intelligent, strong, confident and interesting characters in a believable story. I can’t take another read filled with implausibility, self pity, ignorance and whining. I see all that everyday in real life.

a bit of a twist but not far fetched

The book is really intriguing. The details about the detectives recovery could have been spent instead expanding relationship between Dani and the criminology professor. ✌️😎

No need to be 14hrs

I had to speed up the narration, and despite that the story seemed slow - I think if it had been 11 hrs it would have had more of a 'pace'. Just felt too drawn out for me.

Crime thriller with a great twist

I always enjoyed Rob's action adventure stories and this is certainly a very enjoyable and gripping crime story with the added feature of having the main character still recovering and dealing with the serious injury sustained in the previous book, Dark Fragments. Recommended 👍

THOUGHT I'D READ THE WRONG REVIEW

I don't agree with the majority of the reviews for this book. I didn't find it 'gripping' at all, in fact I found it annoyingly slow and too much detail about Dani. Her interactions with Jason were very predictable and at times I said the next line out loud. There isn't really much story about the murders at all and in my opinion this story could have been over and done in a couple of hours. Won't be listening to another Rob Sinclair story in the near future.
