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.

ok but probably won't buy another one.
Würden Sie dieses Hörbuch einem Freund empfehlen? Wenn ja, was würden Sie ihm dazu sagen?
I think it is an interesting plot, quite atmospheric and Lisa Coleman is an excellent reader. The characters are described vividly too but I found it a bit too cliche.The bad guys are very, very evil, the good guys are so nice, polite, caring and considerate. Good guy turns out to be one of the bad guys after all. Fair maiden is captured, enduring her predicament until rescued by hero cop with a romantic twist at the end.

Manchester isn't as bad as that...
A friend rated the book favourably, so after reading the synopsis, I thought I'd give it a go. I don't think I realized that it's the 5th volume in a series, or I probably wouldn't have bought it, cause I don't know the previous volumes (yet). I'm glad I bought it. I only stopped listening to sleep, I was totally engrossed in the narration. The narrator did a fantastic job, and the story has a lot of suspense and moments to bite your nails if you are so inclined (I'm glad I'm not, there wouldn't be any left). There were moments where I was cross with Maggie, and where I thought her actions were incredibly stupid, but somehow they were understandable, too.
The characters all have depth, and it isn't your stereotypical story.
I also enjoyed the setting. I've been to Manchester, and my experiences with this lovely town and its people are very positive, but I know that Mancunians complain about lots of things about their town, especially the weather. :D Still, don't let this novel deter you from going there. ;)
I'll certainly check out more books in this series.
