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.

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.

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. ✌️😎

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.
