Summary

Two women dead.

It was a vicious, calculated murder. The killer selected his victim at Euston station, followed her home on the tube, strangled her to death in front of her child. At the same time, killed in the same way, a second body is discovered at the back of King's Cross station. And this grisly event eerily echoes the murder of two other women, stabbed to death months before on the same day. 

Two killers working together.

It is DI Tom Thorne who sees the link and comes to the horrifying conclusion. This is not a serial killer the police are up against. This is two of them - and two killers are way more deadly than one....

Scaredycat

I am reading the DI Thorne books in order, unlike the majority of the crime novels I tend to listen to/read. I must admit that I didn't really enjoy this one and became rather bored if I'm honest. I also got quite a few of the characters confused.

The author narrated his own work competently.
