On the night Brian Bishop murdered his wife, he was 60 miles away, asleep in bed. At least, that's the way it looks to Detective Superintendent Roy Grace, who is called in to investigate the kinky slaying of beautiful young Brighton socialite Katie Bishop.
Soon, Grace starts coming to the conclusion that Bishop has performed the apparently impossible feat of being in two places at once. Has someone stolen his identity, or is he simply a very clever liar?
As Grace digs deeper behind the facade of the Bishops' outwardly respectable lives, it starts to become clear that all is not at all as it first seemed. And then he digs just a little too far, and suddenly the fragile stability of his own troubled, private world is facing destruction.

"Definitely go for abridged version"
Having rejected Book 1 as the narrator was very annoying, I was delighted to find Neil Pearson as the narrator of book 2 and 3.
However, I did find the books a bit short, not realising initially that they were 'abridged'.
I did then try to full version of book 3, about 15 hours long, thinking it would be better value for money. (Both available for 1 credit).
The long version was unbearable.
It started with a blurb, which basically gave the storyline away!!!
One part had a description of a golf course, which went on for what felt like 10 minutes.
I returned that book and got the abridged version after all.
I still feel that the abridged one moves a little quickly, but obviously doesn't miss out key parts of the story, and doesn't include a spoiler immediately before chapter 1.
I'm going for abridged version of book 4 now.
Great story, just wish I'd not had the spoiler at the start.
Nicely plotted and read. A good listen but uses a plot line that is pretty obvious from the start even with its extra twist. Very visual descriptions-you could see this guy going straight onto the small screen. All the usual character cliches but these are cops you get to like.
