The Surrogate Audible Audiobook – Unabridged
A shocking double-murder scene greets Detective Inspector Philip Brennan when he is called to a flat in Colchester. Two women are viciously cut open and laying spread-eagled, one tied to the bed, one on the floor. The woman on the bed has had her stomach cut into and her unborn child is missing. But this is the third time Phil and his team has seen such an atrocity. Two other pregnant women have been killed in this way and their babies taken from them. No one can imagine what sort of person would want to commit such horrible crimes. When psychologist Marina Esposito is brought in, Phil has to put aside his feelings about their shared past and get on with the job. But can they find the killer before another woman is targeted?

The writers definitely aimed for that shock value with the extreme level of violence - so the weak-stomached may want to avoid this one - but the bloodshed was tempered somewhat by the relationship between the DI and the psychologist. And though their relationship took some predictable turns, the surprises in the murderous plot more than made up for that! And while the book wasn't flawless, and seemed to attempt to emulated Mo Hayder's earlier books, it was certainly gripping and with the multitude of brief chapters, quite fast-paced.
The next two books have already been released and I am looking forward to reading them based on their synopses. I am even more curious to see how these characters will grow and develop over the course of the series. It's an intriguing beginning to a series!
I do have to say this author has an imagination like you would not believe. In some ways there were a few things that I thought were a bit unbelieveable and would like to know what others thought. I also was not a great fan of "the girlfriend" Marina. At times she really irritated me. The main man Detecive Inspector Phillip Brennan was a great character. I guess all in all I did enjoy this book. Look forward to reading some other views if possible.

I’ve marked it down because I couldn’t stand one of the main characters. Not sure if we’re meant to hate her or not but boy is she hard to like. She’s so selfish! All she does the whole book is whine how she’s been let down yet she’s the one having an affair! She sleeps with Phil again after moaning about how he ‘abandoned’ her (when in actual fact he was working on a murder case. But of course marina thinks she’s more important than that) Then she writes him a letter and has another dig about how he came for her...eventually! And he’s stupid enough to lap it up like a lost puppy.
I do want to read the next book because like I said, the storyline of the murders was really good but I’m not sure I will because I don’t like the main characters.
