DCI Douglas As Gripping As Ever


💛 Rachel Abbott’s tenth DCI Tom Douglas book is just as unputdownable as those that came before it. I wasn’t even in the mood for a thriller and it pulled me right in.

💚 Tom Douglas and his team are the mainstay of the series and always offer a mix of likeability and familiarity as well as a longer-form plot. Their storyline is one of many that run through the book, including a murder, a cult and one messed up childhood.

💜 Can’t recommend this enough. It can be read as a standalone, but why not start with the first of this excellent series? You’ll have more of a stake in DCI Douglas’s character arc.


🎧 Easy to follow, immersive without being distracting, this is the perfect accompaniment for errands, commutes and just around the house. Lisa Coleman’s performance is subtle, allowing the listener leeway to impose their own view on each character.

🎧 This is one of the best chapter listing I’ve seen on Audible. Not only are the prologue and credits clearly marked, but it includes book sections. I shouldn’t have to be impressed by this, but given the state of most audiobook chapter listings, this deserves the credit.


No spoilers for this one. Maybe next time!

Close Your Eyes


Don't let him under your skin. He'll destroy you.

Don't fight him. He'll win.

Run. Never let him find you.

I thought I was safe here, but I'm not. I've stayed too long. Now Genevieve is dead and the police are on their way. It's time for me to go.

I must stick to the plan - the one I made the day I arrived in this city. My bag is packed. It always is. I will destroy every shred of evidence of my existence. The police must never find me. If they do, so will he.

I made a mistake and someone had to die. But I'm the one who has truly lost her life.

I need to make a choice. If I keep running, I'll never stop. If I go back, he will make me suffer.

How many lives can one person ruin?

A Tom Douglas thriller.
