The perfect couple …. or the perfect lie?

A year and a half ago, Gemma met the love of her life, Danny. Since then, their relationship has been like something out of a dream. But one Friday evening, Gemma returns to find Danny is nowhere to be seen.

After two days with no word from her husband, Gemma turns to the police. She is horrified by what she discovers-serial killer is on the loose in Bristol. When she sees the photos of the victims she is even more stunned…. they all look just like Danny.

But, the police aren’t convinced by Gemma’s story. Why has no one apart from Gemma seen or heard from Danny in weeks? Why is there barely a trace of him in their flat? Is she telling them the truth, or are there more secrets and lies in this marriage than meets the eye?


Gemma has the perfect life, a perfect husband, Danny. They have just moved to a perfect new home because of Danny’s job. Gemma is a freelance journalist who loves her job, despite it meaning she occasionally has to go away for a couple of days now and again.

Gemma has to go away for the weekend for work, Danny promises he will great her with a home cooked meal when she gets home. But when she arrives home there is no meal, and no Danny.

Days, weeks go by with no word from Danny, Gemma goes through a range of emotions, confusion, hurt, anger, fear, sadness. Where is Danny?

The police aren’t much good as they are focused on a serial killer who is going round killing men who look like Danny!

How perfect is Gemma and Danny’s marriage? This story isn’t as fast paces as I would have liked, at times I found it dragged a little. There are plenty of twists and turns to keep the reader guessing until the end, although not all questions are answered so does this mean there could be a second book?

Overall a reasonable read I give it ⭐️⭐️⭐️ out of ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️ it May be that I have read a few too many of these types of books and need something a little different.

I would like to thank #netgalley and #OneMoreChapter for an eARC of this book in exchange for an honest, fair and unbiased review.
