Kill Me Again: DCI Tom Douglas, Book 5 Audible Audiobook – Unabridged
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.

At last Maggie finally smartens up and starts thinking like an attorney! She comes to her senses at the end and chooses to think for herself. She takes action! I loved the ending!
Great novel! It was part police procedural, part psychological drama, part suspense. It’s definitely a book worth reading, as all Rachel Abbott’s novels are.
I'd say it was a tightly-plotted mystery with a main character I could care about. She did drive me a little crazy with her Hamlet-like hesitation to act, but the author did a pretty good job of justifying her hesitation.
The bad guys in this were really, really very bad, so much so that they were perhaps a little unbelievable. On the other hand, the way the main female character copes with the ever-changing news about her husband who she thought she knew is very believable, and I valued the book just for how well the author handled her situation.
I wouldn't say this was a tip-top murder mystery, but it was definitely enjoyable and a good read, and I recommend it to anyone who's looking for a new author to follow.

Maggie goes to work at her new appointment on a cold snowy day in January in Manchester, she is a defence lawyer and has a horrible client to defend who kills old ladies. Then whilst struggling home after working late in the horrid weather she finds out that her stay at home husband party time plumber has gone out and left the kids at home alone in the middle of preparing tea, Lilly and Josh. She can't get hold of him she if told that his phone has been disconnected and it's still the same state of play the following morning and she hasn't heard from him and can't contact him. She fears that he has gone off with another woman as she words it. Meanwhile DCI Tom Douglas ex girlfriend has gone missing and he can't trace her either so lots of missing people and then some murders that could be linked to some cases from twelve years earlier and you have the ingredients for a fantastic thriller and as is her talent Rachel is the perfect chief and won't leave you disappointed right up till the last mouthful sorry I mean page.
As you can tell i loved this book and hope you do a well, if you like thrillers then this should be the case that this you'll love it so why not give it ago. 😬
This was yet another fantastic story from Rachel Abbot.
There's so many things that excite me about how it's written; the different chapters written from different characters perspectives. I love how it's set in Manchester, with living near by it makes it even more exciting for me to read of places I see or walk past.
How in every story I am lured into a false sense of security through the main crime and slowly try to piece together the jigsaw puzzle as the team of detectives do it, sometimes one or two steps ahead of them.
Having read almost all of Abbots other novels (all this year) I still love reading how Tom and Becky's characters continue to develop, but most of all I love how I get to 3/4 of the way through the book and try to slow myself down as I don't want it to end. But inevitably I speed read and am not being able to put the book down until the very last full stop. I even missed a gym class and a meal finishing this book it was that addictive!
I can't wait to start reading the next in the series. Keep it up Rachel. 👍🏻😬
Final words...I really think these books should be made into a T.V series. I know many people are missing out on these wonderfully written thrillers because they can't engage in reading. Please make them come to life for all.
DCI Tom Douglas is back again in the fifth in the series from Rachel Abbott, I have a major soft spot for Tom. He’s such a fab character.
Two series of murders, twelve years apart, Tom Douglas see’s the similarities and with ex girlfriend Leo missing and looking like the first victim, Maggie a defence lawyer who’s husband is missing who also looks like Leo and the first victim, Tom and Di Becky Robinson have a race against time to unravel the past and the present and find out what the heck is going on and who is involved.
Rachel Abbott has a way of writing a story that you can’t put down. Each book has been a page turner and I’ve found myself reading into the small hours. This book is full of twists and turns, it’s action packed and tells a complex story. The characters are all well formed and intriguing and you can’t help feeling mixed up in the plot. Kill me Again left me breathless and wondering if the people we think we know really are what we believe?
I highly recommend Kill Me Again and this could be read as a stand alone book but its a great series and I think you would benefit reading them all in order.
The chills were keeping me awake throughout the night to keep reading. The connections of some murders happened twelve years ago, coming up in certain chapters were brilliantly laid out. As a reader, it intrigued me. It has also showed me who Tom Douglas, the Police officer on the cases, was. Like an old friend, a conscientious one, for whom you wished to know him more. And his sidekick, the fiery Becky Robinson.
Everything about this novel is superbly crafted. Unputdownable? Yes. This is truly a gem of a thriller. Read it now.
Poor Maggie. To find out her husband wasn't who she believed him to be. What a terrible shock to her system. Who was he really?
This book will have you clinging on to the edge of your seat. I must say, in all honesty, I couldn't put this book down --- well, hardly.
Thank you Rachel Abbott for interrupting my routine. 😱
