Summary

The second audiobook in an exciting new crime series featuring psychologist Dr Jessie Flynn - a brilliantly complex character who struggles with a dark past. Perfect for fans of Nicci French and Val McDermid.

A baby is abandoned in the middle of the night at Royal Surrey County Hospital. DI Bobby 'Marilyn' Simmons suspects the father is planning to take his own life following the violent suicide of his eldest son, Danny, a year earlier. The race is on to find him. Captain Ben Callan is investigating a suspicious death. Just 16 years old, Stephen Foster has been stabbed in the neck and abandoned in the woods. Someone tried to save his life - but who? And why haven't they come forward?

When psychologist Dr Jessie Flynn is called in to consult on both cases, she sees connections between the deaths of Danny and Stephen. And when she starts counselling a third traumatized young man, Jessie fears he faces the same fate....

Critic reviews

" Scared to Death is one of those book that creeps up on you, beautifully observed and written, skillfully plotted and developed and with characters as complex and flawed as your most interesting friends. I loved it." (Simon Toyne)
"Tremendously accomplished - a slow burn builds into an edge-of-the-seat thriller. Complex, humane and completely convincing." (Mel McGrath, author of Give Me the Child)

Excellent - another brilliant thriller

I really enjoyed this book, a fast paced and interesting story with great characters. Deals with difficult issues well. Narrator was brilliant. Having read two Dr Jessie Flynn books, I can't wait for number 3!!
