'One of the best crime writers working today' Guardian
'The Likeness isn't just a good page-turner, but a skilfully written modern novel' Sunday Independent
Still traumatised by her brush with a psychopath, Detective Cassie Maddox transfers out of the Murder Squad and starts a relationship with fellow detective Sam ONeill. But she's too badly shaken to commit to him, or to her career.
When Sam calls her to the scene of his new case, she is shocked to find that the murdered girl is her double. What's more, her ID says she is Lexie Madison - the identity Cassie used, years ago, as an undercover detective.
With no leads, no suspects and no clues to Lexie's real identity, Cassie's old boss spots the opportunity of a lifetime: send Cassie undercover in the dead girl's place, to tempt the killer out of hiding to finish the job.
