Seventeen years ago, Damian Walker abducted five women because the voices in his head told him to. Now he has been declared sane and is about to be released back onto Manchester’s streets with a new identity. But within hours, there is another attack similar to his previous ones. Walker has proof it’s not him – but is he reliable, and, if so, who is trying to frame him? DI Jessica Daniel and her chief are given a parallel task to the main investigation: keep an eye on Walker – but that’s not all Jessica has to do. Rock star Blaine Banner is playing a series of homecoming gigs but is convinced someone’s trying to kill him, while a bride-to-be is picketing the police station, demanding someone finds her missing fiancé. All the while, faces from Jessica’s past are watching and waiting. Someone wants a word...


Another good entry into the Jessica Daniel canon, with our hero pulled into a secret investigation over some crimes that may be a copycat or may be a prisoner just released back into society. I liked the growth of relationships in this one, with Jessica working closer with her new superior and of course relying on Izzy and Dave to do a lot of the legwork. There are moments of danger for the wider group but it all comes good in the end, with another clifthanger right at the last moment to leave me diving into the next book.

Rating: 4 / 5
