He's a serial killer. A murderer of young women, all killed in brutal attacks.
But despite Hamish Wolfe's conviction, he's always stuck to his story - he's innocent, and he's been wrongly imprisoned. And now he wants someone to investigate and, more importantly, to write his story.
Maggie Rose is a notorious defense attorney and writer whose specialty is getting convictions overturned. At first Maggie is reluctant to even acknowledge Hamish's requests to meet, ignoring his letters. But this is a very charismatic and persuasive man, good looking and intelligent.
Eventually even she can't resist his lure.

"Antonia Beamish raises popular British novelist Bolton's psychological thriller to the next level. Beamish's enthusiastic narration grabs the listener from the opening lines and maintains her hold to the end.... Set aside time for this one because once started, it demands to be finished." (AudioFile)
It was a great story until about the last six to eight chapters. Then it became excelerated and rather hard to see as credible. Enjoyed it in spite of the rather hard to buy ending
No. Would recommend others though. Similar to another reviewer, i was drawn into this story until then last few chapters which I found impposible to believe. The attempt at irony failed miserably.
Same question. See above. When writing a mystery there's a trust or a bargain created between reader and author. Rather felt used and had my time wasted. There was a whole backstory completely hidden.
None. Nothing to do with Antonia Beamish's performance. In the end no one was likable.
A waste of an opportunity.
