Summary

Social media stars Chloe Morrison and Joe Hooper seem to have it all - until their bodies are found following an anonymous phone call to their high-profile agent. They are tied and bound to chairs facing each other, and their violent deaths cause a media scrum to descend on Liverpool, with DI David Murphy and DS Laura Rossi assigned to the case. It quickly becomes clear that the killer believes secrets and lies within relationships should have deadly consequences....

Gripping!

Any additional comments?

This is my first book by this author. I enjoyed it very much. It's a little different, well written and really quite exciting. The narration was very good too.

Rollicking good read

Enjoyed this a lot. It was an engaging story although rather obvious, none the worse for that. I listened while I cleared out the garage and hardly noticed how hard I was working. Loved the narration, Jonathan Kernel made all the characters come to life and contributed significantly to my enjoyment.

Oh the scouse!

A good story, and quite gripping. However, the voices of the main characters, especially Murphy and Harris, ugh. Jonathan Keeble is a splendid reader and I’ve never had cause to criticise him before, but the phlegmy accents of some of the protagonists are almost too much to take, and probably put me off the rest of this series altogether.
