An extraordinary, well-written, fast-moving and intelligent murder mystery. It is a tale of obsession and murder, both premeditated and unintentional, the contrasts are intriguing. The fine line between sanity and insanity is beautifully drawn. We follow a reclusive computer geek, Matt, his obsession in the flat beneath, Nigel, Nigel’s girlfriend Laura, the police and a seedy photographer. It is a tale with two strands and a horrific murder early on. As the strands slowly link so the gradual build becomes nail-biting, leaving you desperately turning pages to a conclusion you really won’t see coming. ~ Sarah Broadhurst
Nigel never meant for it to happen. At first, he just wanted to be Matt's friend. But when he discovers he can hear what is going on in the flat below him, his fascination with his new neighbour drifts into obsession. Rearranging his furniture to recreate the layout of the rooms downstairs. Buying the same clothes, going through Matt's post, his things. Becoming Matt without him ever knowing. And it would have been all right, if Matt hadn't brought the girl home. When things spiral out of control, Detective Inspector Harland has to unravel the disturbing truth. But there's far more to the case than meets the eye ...
