Karl Savage is dead.
He must be. His ex, Anjelica, is in prison for murdering him in an arson attack. Multiple forensic experts testified to finding his charred remains.
So when Anjelica begs investigative journalist Morgan Vine to prove her innocence, it seems an impossible task. It doesn't matter that Karl was abusive. That Anjelica has a baby to care for. That she's petrified of fire. The whole world knows Karl is dead.
Then he turns up outside Morgan's window . . .

Review quote

Simon Booker's long experience in writing for television has granted him a sure grasp of character, and his skills do not desert him...Booker's professional touch is firmly in place, and Vine, while cut from familiar cloth, is a distinctive heroine * The Guardian * Morgan Vine (Without Trace) returns to prove the innocence of a woman jailed for murdering her abusive ex-lover in an arson attack. * The Bookseller * What's going on is gut churning and Morgan can trust nobody. The Kent landscape is the perfect landscape for a gritty it could happen to you read. -- Natasha Harding * The Sun * There is a genuinely clever and somewhat unexpected resolution, the plot is intelligently woven, you have to pay attention - Kill Me Twice is a riveting and brilliantly plotted bit of storytelling that may keep you up at night. * Liz Loves Books * What's going on is gut churning and Morgan can trust nobody. The Kent landscape is the perfect landscape for a gritty it could happen to you read. * The Sun * 'A complex story that is well written and well plotted, Kill Me Twice takes you on one hell of a ride. The ending shocked me and had me muttering 'oh my God' to the book. A deliciously dark read that has me eagerly awaiting the third in the series.' * Bloomin Brilliant Books * Lots of little twists and turns in this story. I loved the way it all started. Seemingly completely unrelated. Not quite sure how it would fit into the plot, at least not at first. This was one that I struggled to put down. Was really nice to read a fresh thriller. * Just One More Chapter * Kill Me Twice really is a spectacular book, one that has me immediately adding the first book, Without Trace, to my cart as opposed to just my wishlist, and keeping a VERY keen eye out for book number 3. There are some vivid and slightly uncomfortable scenes as Karl shows his true colours, but I couldn't have torn my eyes away from the page if my life depended on it. A superb book, one that is very hard to put down and had me gripped from start to finish. I wholeheartedly recommend this one! * The Book Magnet * I appreciated the tangled web of crime, coercion and psychopathy Booker has pitted his lead against in Kill Me Twice. That complexity, along with the isolation and eeriness of the windswept coastal setting makes for compelling reading. * Book Lover Book Reviews * Fast paced and well thought out * Love Books Group * The setting in Dungeness in Kent provides the perfect landscape for this dark and gritty read * Verve Magazine * I thoroughly enjoyed it * Much Ado About Books * The structure of the plot just feels right with the correct amount of calm followed by action, light and dark and changes of pace which retain the reader's interest throughout. * Breakaway Reviewers * The story delivers on the expectation Booker created in the first book. Morgan remains a feisty and headstrong character that won't let go once she gets her teeth into a story * Novel Heights * The plot was fast and furious and the tension was evident throughout the book, with an extremely disturbed villain, some great characters and some gritty and disturbing scenarios KILL ME TWICE is a page turner with twists and turns throughout * Compulsive Readers *
