Detective Superintendent Roy Grace is investigating the bizarre slaying of Katie Bishop, a member of Brighton's social elite. Her husband Brian appears to be in the clear-he was in another town at the time, sound asleep. But Grace begins to suspect the presence of a doppelgAnger: is someone else-almost identical to Bishop-involved in the crime? Grace's diligent exhuming of murky secrets soon demonstrates that the Bishops' outwardly settled lives had darker corners. And as Grace gets close to the truth, he finds-paradoxically-that it's his own beleaguered private life which is on the line.

Professional reviews

"David Baukham gives an expert narration of this super-complicated thriller cum police procedural. The plot revolves around two brutal and kinky murders in the seaside resort of Brighton. Baukham handles every conceivable variety of British accent, male and female voices, and even plausibly renders the inexpert English of a Munich policeman. There are some scary episodes in the narrative, and Baukham's reading carries the terror convincingly, without exaggerating it. Listeners will "solve" the mystery before the police, which is what the author intends. This leaves them knowing that bad things are going to happen and hoping that the police will find out in time to avert complete disaster. And they do, of course. Just barely. R.E.K.
