Publisher's Summary

Brand-new psychological crime from the author of The Keeper.

When a beautiful, red-haired nurse’s body is found mutilated in her house in Lawley the morning after a date with Detective Constable Ryan Downey, all eyes turn to him.

With a very specific modus operandi, Detective Sergeant Jenna Morgan and her team know exactly who the offender is; the trouble is he’s currently serving a life stretch in HMP Long Lartin.

It soon becomes evident to DS Morgan and her team that there may be a copycat killer on the loose.

In a race against time, they need to track down the copycat and discover who is pulling whose strings.

Couldn’t finish listening to this.

The reader is good. The story etc. has far too much swearing and unnecessary filth altogether

Such a great writer

I found this author in my free list. This is the 3rd book I've now listened to by her. I've loved them all. Love the characters, the narrator and the stories. At this point, I'm even willing to pay for the pleasure of a good long listen about Jenna Morgan and her team! I'm so glad I found them.

Love Jenna Morgan!

Love the characters! Loved the story, I did figure it out long before we got to who the killer was but I still loved it. Katy Sobey is great doing male or female voices too. Pulls me right in, I can picture the scenes. I love to listen throughout the whole day while I'm working around the house. I hate to pause these books. Give them a listen I don't think you'll be disappointed.

Cliche

I can’t explain why this work underwhelmed me. I didn’t find the story, prose, or characters compelling. Quite a bit of self aggrandizing copaganda (for example, behaving like it’s absurd to think that police would allocate more resources to an officer’s family in danger than they would someone else).

Had to drop a 'star'.

I have really enjoyed these first two books by this author and have the third to listen to. I'm sure I will follow this author in future too...but...whilst the characters and plotting is wonderfully thought through and entertaining, the Police procedural isn't! Three times there was reference to a prisoner being read or reminded of their 'Miranda' rights. If this is lack of preparation it's poor and if it's to appeal to an American audience it's out of place in this very 'local' book. Everything else about the book I loved and I probably sound pedantic but 30 years in law enforcement makes me read police procedure more closely.

Cliched and predictable.

Blimey, that 7 hours of my life I’ll never get back…
However, if you are going to indulge, do yourself a favour and make up a bingo card and listen for how many times these phrases are repeated and re-repeated throughout the duration of the most formulaic novel ever written.Enjoy!

1. “Scrubbed through her thick hair”
2. Milky white throat”
3. “kicked up at the corners”
4. “Swiped”
5. Spoke into airwaves
6. Her long legs
7. Auburn locks

Enjoyable if not gripping

Great to pass the time but lacked some substance. The narrator feels like the wrong choice for the key character, as it made her less convincing. The story was well thought through but a bit far stretched to be considered a police procedural. The choice of language was sometimes a little frustrating. I got a bit bored of people 'literally vibrating with <insert emotion here>' . Glad I didn't pay for it, but found it entertaining enough to download the next one to pass the time on my morning commute.

Dull and drawn out.

Overly descriptive. Reminded me of English writing class at school where we were taught how to add detail, colour, texture etc to things, but this author hugely overdoes it. Not every single thing needs a long extravagant description.

And I swear there was a 10 minute scene / chapter just describing a hungover person wanting a cup of coffee.. get on with it!

I tried a couple of times to finish this but just couldn’t stay engaged. Very dull.

Great storyline

A nurse is found dead in her house. The night before she’d been on a date with Ryan who happens to be DS Jenna Morgan’s DC.
Jenna and her team know who’s guilty but how to get going with all they know and have.
Very good, a grabbing story to read and listen too.

Nice book shame about the sound

Great book, great characters. Katey Sobey was grand.
The only downside was the sound quality and the added in robot voice bits.

Great story but kinda a bit meh

The story itself and the writing style is excellent, but the main characters seeming lack of knowledge about dating apps amongst other things gave it a bit of a ‘written by an old person’ feel.

The narrator’s breathy, strangely inflected reading style along with some noticeable editing mistakes took a couple of hours to get used to and I almost gave up at the start; but I’m glad i persevered.

Gripping story, believable plot twists

This story features characters we already know and introduces new ones. It’s pacy, well written and well performed. I loved this book.

Loved it.

Diane, you did it again and the twist at the end ? Brilliant.

Narrator Katy Sobey , I love your voice and, obviously, could listen for hours to both the Book & You.

I discovered Diane Saxon with the first Book, Find her Alive, and I ‘read’, Someone’s There, eagerly ! With both Books, like a Fish, was hooked.

Am about to start on the next one.
Please keep up the Sterling work Diane and Katy.

Sincerely, a new Fan ♥️

Great story

Really enjoyed this story. Characters were likeable. I did guess the baddie but still was worth the listen to. I thought that the narrator was also really great, probably one of the best narrations I’ve come across since starting my audible journey a few months ago.
