Publisher's Summary

There are three sides to every story: Yours. Mine. And the truth...

Max and Alissa have a fairy tale life - newlywed, madly in love and enviously rich. Then Max is brutally stabbed to death at their home and Alissa, miraculously, escapes with her life. But why was she spared?

The hunt for the killer begins, uncovering a number of leads - was Max's incredible wealth the motive? Had his shady business practices finally caught up with him? Or was it a stalker with a dangerous obsession?

Devoted friends rally around gentle, sweet Alissa as she is left to mourn the loss of her husband and pick up her life. But not everyone is who they seem...Deep-rooted jealousies, secrets and twisted love lie just beneath the surface, and not all fairy tales have a happy ending.

Duplicity is a suspenseful thriller from the bestselling author of Look Behind You and Where the Memories Lie.

Silence of the Calves

So refreshing to come across a solid mystery that is neither a cutesy cozy nor a gore-fest. This is very well-written, driven by characters that are fully fleshed-out and relatable. As always, Simon Vance is a class act and a pleasure to listen to. The central secret (no spoilers here) is one that has been used in mysteries before, but not always with this much finesse. One character has a tragic history that brought to mind Jody Foster's monologue in Silence of the Lambs. Animal lovers may want to skip one descriptive passage in particular as I did. Overall, a really good read.

It gets better...

I worried in the beginning through some of the back and forth Police procedural parts that I may have made a mistake with this book, but I'm very glad I stayed with it.
It just gets better and better.

Seemed Transparent -- Until the End

So, I didn't see THAT coming! This was a enjoyable story, even though it appeared that the "solution" to the crime had been exposed early on. Crazily, that wasn't the case at all. So that makes this one pretty good. The author allowed the story to go back and forth between the detective and "the other one," each telling their version of events. I liked that and both narrators were wonderful. The ending held a big surprise; and was a rare good one for me. If you like to be flummoxed, get this one!

Nice plot, exceptional narration. Worth a listen.

I want to start this review with one of the very few negatives, because it's also a warning (NO SPOILERS): One of the final partz of the book was clearly made to be read. To avoid even the tiniest of spoilers, I'll only say you should read the last 10 chapters, for reasons that will become obvious during that segment.

The performance is incredible. Just amazing. Congratulations to the voice actors and their team. Absolutely nothing negatie about it. 5/5

The plot is also very good, although it requires just a bit too much suspension of disbelief. It's not an impossible story, but it's weird enough that a reader may doubt it. Also, there was a small part of the book, net the end of part 2, and during the start of part 3, that was very slightly boring. 4/5

Overall: Worth reading/listening to. But take my advice and read the last 10 chapters, for the sake of your experience. 4/5.

Pulp meets TV movie in the best way possible

Everything about this wants to be a movie, including the turns and the by-the-numbers arc. I mean this in the most charming way. Despite familiar tropes, and even a self-aware moment where the detective laments becoming a cliché, I had to finish it, instead of leaving the last hour for my next shift. The performances were fantastic, breathing color into this modern dime store tale.

Excellent thriller/mystery

Excellent thriller/mystey. With great narration, this story will keep you guessing to the very end. There were some twists and turns. So be prepared for the unexpected!

Farfetched but fun

Yes, the plot was very contrived--but it was fast-paced, suspenseful and involving. Recommended for fans of this genre.

My first real crime novel audiobook

I got this audio book as a Daily Deal because every so often I'll see a genre that I'm not very familiar with and think 'Maybe I'm the type of person who enjoys Mystery Crime novels?' So as a side note, this is not a genre I'm very familiar with.

For the most part I really enjoyed this novel. It had interesting circumstances that went into the crime committed and gave a really great look into the killer's thoughts and background. Henrietta Meire did a great job with voicing the main female character and I even found her part humorous at times. I will say for the most part this isn't really a 'mystery' crime since the reader knows from the beginning who is to blame (though I will say that there was a twist at the end that I was not at all expecting!). The fun is really more in the sleuthing and finding out how it was done from either the killer's perspective or from detective's work. Overall not a bad introduction into crime novels.

I will say that there are some graphic scenes towards the beginning showing cruelty towards animals as well as domestic and child abuse so if you're more sensitive to that material you may want to consider before you buy. Once you get past those scenes at the beginning though the book moves on to focus on the main crime and its circumstances.

Good if you enjoy foul language

Writers should learn more adjectives. The pleasure of reading a book isn't possible, for me and others I'm sure, when so many words don't manage to number more than four letter.

fab twist!

really enjoyed the story. I had an inkling but couldn't work out how and then aahh that's how! Was not expecting the ending so it's always a treat to be surprised.

Brilliant book by an amazing storyteller

Would you consider the audio edition of Duplicity to be better than the print version?

Wow. I need a lie down after this book! The audio version was brilliantly narrated and added colour to Sibel Hodge's amazing writing. I'm a big fan of this author and could not wait to consume this book. I was not disappointed. I loved the characters. They were so fully fleshed out, I felt as if I was listening to a movie, their images and actions were very real in my mind. As for the story, there are so many twists and turns, I was constantly changing my mind as to who the real antagonist was. When I finally settled on someone, Sibel shook things up all over again. I could not stop listening to this book. It went everywhere with me. And the ending - what a roller coaster! For the reviewers who said they had to suspend belief - it's fiction, just go with it. I loved every second and was not thrown out of the story at any point. The author is an amazing storyteller and this is a brilliant book. I could not recommend it more.

Very poor don’t waste your credit

Sorry after 20 minutes deleted from library. Crass and lacks the ability to engage the listener. Feels like your listening into a conversation occurring at an east London bus stop.

Average book, narration not up to much

I've listened to quite a few audio books recently through Kindle Unlimited, so I know the difference a good narrator can make. Some of this book was a little cheesy and predictable, but a decent narrator could have easily redeemed that. Unfortunately, I found both accents grating and I really dislike male narrators doing female voices, which was a lot of this book. Disappointing, wish I'd just read instead of listening

This is just bad

1.5 stars

This book was honestly so bad. I can't understand how it got so many positive reviews because this book is just one giant cliche. All the characters were bland stereotypes, everything was so predictable, there was nothing suspenseful or interesting about the story... it was just bad.

Audiobooking it made it bearable, but I was so annoyed with the narration and the characters for most of it because they're just so... cliche and the narrator's weren't bad, but they weren't great either. The only thing I did not see coming was the last chapter. That was the only thing that was... I wouldn't go as far as saying it was a good plot twist, but at least it wasn't obvious from 5 miles away. So that's why it gets 1.5 stars.

Unexpected twist in the end

Enjoyed the story and performances in this audiobook. The characters were believable and despite the plot being a little incredulous it was well written and performed. I would recommend

Plot a little far fetched but overall ok

I found the plot a bit too unbelievable, the chance meeting and what followed was quite unlikely in reality. The twist at the end was unexpected though. Particularly liked the character of the DI and the narration was good.

Double surprises

Didn't see it coming as to who murdered Max, but it doesn't detract from it being an intriguing read!
