When your life is a lie, who can you trust?
When Maggie Taylor accepts a new job in Manchester, she is sure it is the right move for her family. The children have settled well, although her husband, Duncan, doesn't appear to be so convinced. But nothing prepares her for the shock of coming home from work one night to find that Duncan has disappeared, leaving their young children alone. His phone is dead, and she has no idea where he has gone or why. And then she discovers she's not the only one looking for him.
When a woman who looks just like Maggie is brutally murdered and DCI Tom Douglas is brought in to investigate, Maggie realises how little she knows about Duncan's past. Is he the man she loves? Who is he running from?
She doesn't have long to decide whether to trust him or betray him. Because one thing has been made clear to Maggie - another woman will die soon, and it might be her.

"Stunning. Classic thriller with twists aplenty"
Great characters with a roller coaster storey line., supported by superb narration. Go buy it.
"Good read but not as good as previous books"
Enjoyed this book, but not quite as much as previous books by Rachel Abbott. The performance was great, the narration a s good as ever, but the story I felt was a little too convoluted, a little too contrived and felt it was a bit unbelievable. I love Tom Douglas as a character and am liking Becky Robinson more as the books progress but this one ( to me) lacks a little of page turning appeal of the previous ones. Still.a good read , however, and I am looking forward to the next one already.
Wowzer - another Tom Douglass book - twists and turns I couldn't stop listening - great story - I can't wait for the next one xx
"Great story, well read. gripping."
Great story, very well read. gripping. kept me wholly entranced until very end. narrator excellent
Kill me again....and again...and again. I would certainly read this book again, the DCI Douglas series is excellent, with this book being no exception.
The whole book was memorable, it gripped me from beginning to end, i finished listening to it in 3 days!!
i didnt hone in on one particular character, Lisa brings them all alive.
Even though i guessed what the twist would be about half way through the book it still kept me gled to my headphones...Well done Rachel
Looking forward to the next installment of DCI Tom Douglas
"A good listen!"
I guessed what the twist would be very early on but still definitely worth a listen. Very good!
"Read Me Again - and Again"
Fast. Gripping. Exciting.
There wasn't a moment to pause or feel bored. It kept me wanting to know more. The ending was creative and a good plot twist.
No. But it made me want to keep reading and held my attention.
I can see why Rachel Abbott is a best-selling author. More please.
"Kill Me Again"
'Kill Me Again' is a DCI Tom Douglas novel and if you've read or listened to any of the titles in the series, he's a senior CID officer based in the Greater Manchester Constabulary. The plot centres around criminal defence lawyer, Maggie Taylor, whose husband disappears suddenly one winter night. At the same time Leo, DCI Douglas' ex-girlfriend also vanishes and there's a killer on the loose.
I must admit that this book did grip me from the start and I found it difficult to put down. The writing's tight and believable and Abbott really makes the grimy parts of urban Manchester come alive. There is one major plot concern though: Maggie's an intelligent and perceptive woman, so why was she so ignorant of the truth?
Lisa Coleman's narration, as ever, was excellent throughout.
This story and narration is brilliant . Allow plenty of time for this book as you will not be able to stop listening until the end . Keeps you on the edge of your seat right to the end .
More please !!!
"One of the best!"
This story is one of the best thrillers I have ever read!
It held my attention from the very beginning until the end . I could not stop listening to it!
There was no sick feeling that I did not want to read on although some parts were quite nasty. Because of this I could not help myself from trying to analyse what was coming next!
This book and the narrator Lisa Coleman made everything very believable in the modern world of today.
I have read all of Rachel Abbott's books and I personally think this one is the best!
