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.

    "First time for everything"

    This is my first time listening to an Audio book and certainly won't be my last. Equally it was my first book by Rachel Abbott and again it won't be my last. Gripping from start to finish, and beautifully read by Lisa Coleman. My dilemma now is which one do I listen to next!

    "Read Me Again - and Again"
    If you could sum up Kill Me Again in three words, what would they be?

    Fast. Gripping. Exciting.


    What did you like best about this story?

    There wasn't a moment to pause or feel bored. It kept me wanting to know more. The ending was creative and a good plot twist.


    What does Lisa Coleman bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you had only read the book?

    Feeling.


    Did you have an emotional reaction to this book? Did it make you laugh or cry?

    No. But it made me want to keep reading and held my attention.


    Any additional comments?

    I can see why Rachel Abbott is a best-selling author. More please.

    Story
    "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.

    Story
    "Very creepy in parts"
    What did you like best about Kill Me Again? What did you like least?

    Best: the descriptions and the power cut sceneWorst: the character of Maggie - no way anyone would have behaved in this way. Such a whining irritating character.


    What was the most interesting aspect of this story? The least interesting?

    Most: The ending.
    Least: Maggie


    What does Lisa Coleman bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you had only read the book?

    Excellent narration.


    Was Kill Me Again worth the listening time?

    Generally yes, but I sped up some of the cringingly annoying Maggie bits.

    "Good enough for 3 stars, but! No spoilers!"
    Any additional comments?

    I really like Rachel Abbott's work, and this book is up to her usually standard in the quality of writing and flow of the story. She writes dialogue really well, and the standard of that often makes or breaks a book for me. Despite all this, I'm struggling with this one. I'm a couple of chapters from then end and it has grated and annoyed me from quite early on. The problem is with the main character Maggie. She is a successful Criminal Defence Lawyer. Yet, she repeatedly makes silly decisions, which, though plausible if she only had to be concerned about her self, don't ring true in a mother who is an intelligent professional women, who works in criminal law. I have given this 3 stars for the quality of the writing, and because some people won't be troubled by what spoilt it for me. However, I experienced it a 2 star read and I'm not sure I can be bothered to be irritated further by finishing it.

    "Ok But Reservations"

    Not a bad read but the main character is completely unbelievable as a trained criminal lawyer making absurd decisions. Narration is quite good - just about worth a credit.

    "Unputdownable!!!"
    Would you listen to Kill Me Again again? Why?

    Kill me again....and again...and again. I would certainly read this book again, the DCI Douglas series is excellent, with this book being no exception.


    What was one of the most memorable moments of Kill Me Again?

    The whole book was memorable, it gripped me from beginning to end, i finished listening to it in 3 days!!


    Which character – as performed by Lisa Coleman – was your favourite?

    i didnt hone in on one particular character, Lisa brings them all alive.


    Was there a moment in the book that particularly moved you?

    Even though i guessed what the twist would be about half way through the book it still kept me gled to my headphones...Well done Rachel


    Any additional comments?

    Looking forward to the next installment of DCI Tom Douglas

    "Good story, narration needs work"

    This is a great gripping story, paced well and quite addictive once you get into it. The narration is pretty poor, and the narrator can only seem to do women's speech with any kind of plausible emotion and intonation. The narrative is incredibly robotic and ALL of the men's voices, perhaps in a bid to sound more masculine, have the cadence of "Let's lock and load!". Except they are saying thinks like "are you ok? I was worried about you", but it just sounds like "Let's lock and load!" It's actually hilarious but ruins the story a bit.

    "Good read but not as good as previous books"

    Enjoyed this book, but not quite as much as previous books by Rachel Abbott. The performance was great, the narration a s good as ever, but the story I felt was a little too convoluted, a little too contrived and felt it was a bit unbelievable. I love Tom Douglas as a character and am liking Becky Robinson more as the books progress but this one ( to me) lacks a little of page turning appeal of the previous ones. Still.a good read , however, and I am looking forward to the next one already.

    "Excellent narration, but book needed editing"

    Plot twists not predictable. Character motivation believable. Gripping and story line quite scary in places. Excellent narration, but book needed editing. Would have been 5 stars if edited for audio. Lisa Coleman's male voices and children's voices very good indeed.
