Publisher's Summary

When your life is a lie, who can you trust?
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.

Best Rachel Abbott Book yet!

I consider this book to be the best one out of the series (so far I have read stranger child, Sixth window , kill me again and sleep tight)

The story is super interesting and the story has you engaged from chapter 1. My favorite part about these books is finding out how all of the characters at one point are connected. This one has you guessing from the beginning and when you think you have it all figured out, BOOM! Another plot twist! You will not be bored with this one.

Good enough for 3 stars, but! No spoilers!

Any additional comments?

I really like Rachel Abbott's work, and this book is up to her usually standard in the quality of writing and flow of the story. She writes dialogue really well, and the standard of that often makes or breaks a book for me. Despite all this, I'm struggling with this one. I'm a couple of chapters from then end and it has grated and annoyed me from quite early on. The problem is with the main character Maggie. She is a successful Criminal Defence Lawyer. Yet, she repeatedly makes silly decisions, which, though plausible if she only had to be concerned about her self, don't ring true in a mother who is an intelligent professional women, who works in criminal law. I have given this 3 stars for the quality of the writing, and because some people won't be troubled by what spoilt it for me. However, I experienced it a 2 star read and I'm not sure I can be bothered to be irritated further by finishing it.

A Smooth and Classy Thriller

Another classy, smooth thriller from Rachel Abbott. This one follows the incidence of a set of murders mimicking a similar series from a dozen years ago. Linking the two is DCI Tom Douglas of course and compared to the previous book in the series, Stranger Child, he is more prominent. It reads much more like a police drama as a result. Still though Abbott’s skill in gradually building the pressure and stress on her female lead Maggie is the key to the book. The increasing fear and paranoia result in both her and Douglas feeling the heat with the story cleverly entwining someone close to the policeman as well.

The narration of the story is very well handled by Lisa Coleman as it twists and turns its way to what I thought was an impressive conclusion. Who could anyone trust? Why were these strange and horrifying events occurring? Who was manipulating those events? Both Maggie and Tom get a thorough testing and emerge as strong characters with a varied and well detailed supporting cast. The reveals and twists that brought the novel to and end were very satisfying.

In short this is a smooth, well written and intelligent thriller. Although it’s a series I think it would still be very satisfying taken alone. A strong story and very, very well worth a credit.

A mesmerizing plot beautifully read.

Would you listen to Kill Me Again again? Why?

Yes, I'd listen to it again as there were so many strands that make it worthy of a second listen.

Who was your favorite character and why?

The narrator as she rang so true. Also her son - a well rounded depiction of a child.

Which character – as performed by Lisa Coleman – was your favourite?

The husband.

Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

Absolutely.

Any additional comments?

Although this is a novel in a detective series it felt like the policeman was secondary to the main character - the woman pivotal to the drama. I liked that as it gives the series more breadth and depth.
