What I Read

Kill Me Again

Kill Me Again, the latest thriller from Rachel Abbott, is a stonkingly good read from an author at the top of her game. You don't need to have read the other books in the series. They are linked by a few characters but don't carry on from where the previous left off, so ideal if you want to start with the latest.
In this thriller we once again meet Detective Chief Inspector Tom Douglas and his colleagues as they investigate a murder in which the corpse has been cut after death to leave a sign. It reminds him of an unsolved series of murders twelve years ago in which three girls who looked alike were targeted. A family is in turmoil because the husband has walked out – disappeared. And Tom’s ex-girlfriend’s also gone missing. She looks very much like the recently murdered girl. He doesn’t believe in coincidence.
 
This darkly complex thriller is more than just an action-packed detective story. We are drawn into the deepest fears of many of the characters, both good and bad, and this racks up the tension for the reader. We feel their terror, see their despair and know their hatred. The whole book is full of mystery, intrigue and well-paced action. It’s exciting and engrossing and kept me up well past bedtime. I’ll be thinking about this story, and some of the issues it raises, for a long time. I believe it’s the author’s best book to date. Thoroughly recommended.
 

I received an advance review copy of this book.

Thanks, George. It was certainly thrilling. Almost heart-stopping in places.
