Publisher's summary

Penguin presents the unabridged downloadable audiobook edition of Behind Dead Eyes by Howard Linskey, read by Kieran Bew.

A Mystery Victim

A corpse is found, its identity extinguished in the most shocking manner imaginable. Detective Ian Bradshaw can't catch the killer if no one can ID the victim. Out there, somewhere, a missing young woman may hold the answers.

A Secret Web

Journalist Helen Norton is about to uncover a massive criminal conspiracy. She just needs the final piece of the puzzle. Soon she will learn the price of the truth.

An 'Innocent' Killer

True-crime writer Tom Carney receives letters from a convicted murderer who insists he is innocent. His argument is persuasive - but psychopaths are often said to be charming....

What is the dark thread running through these crimes?

Critic reviews

Praise for Howard Linskey: "One of the best new writers around. This is a must-read series." (Mark Billingham)
"Linskey has taken a sharp swerve towards the big time.... He has elevated his writing to a level of complexity and humanity seldom approached by British writers previously. A new name on our criminal horizon." (Maxim Jakubowski)
"This is lacerating fare that makes most current crime fiction look like thin gruel." (Financial Times)
"Brilliant.... This is first class stuff, an unstoppable tale, a real page-turner not to be missed." (Sarah Broadhurst)
"Linskey delivers a flawless feel for time and place, mixed with unrelenting pace." [The Times (Top Five Thrillers of the Year)]
"Immensely satisfying, utterly compelling. Prepare to add another name to your must-read list." (Eva Dolan)

Annoying Narrator!

A good story, so worth buying. But the narrator got on my nerves. He was easy to listen to, just that he would not pause between new scenes. He would transition into the next scene like it was the next line.You had to picture even harder where he was up to. Where we had left off with that scene. Extraordinary,considering the editors could have made this happen. Or for a man who is supposed to be a professional.
However it was a good story.

Something went wrong. Please try again in a few minutes.
