The Essence of Evil

The Essence of Evil Summary

He’s your attacker.

He’s a murderer.

He’s your twin. 

When DI Dani Stephens returns to work after an attack that almost ended her life, she’s quickly plunged into a horrific new case, as dead bodies are discovered on the streets of Birmingham.

But with no link between the victims, Dani has to get inside the killer’s mind - so turns to the murderer she knows best. Her own twin brother…

But what makes a psychopath? Can understanding her twin help her find a murderer who leaves no trace? As the circle closes on Dani, the clock is ticking and she needs a breakthrough – before she becomes the latest victim.

A heart-stopping crime thriller that fans of Peter James and Mark Billingham won’t be able to put down.

Essence of evil4 star

Good book. Weird plot.45


Wow!4 star

I really didn’t see that coming! I was getting a little confused towards the end.45


Thoroughly unlikeable main character3 star

Dani should be a sympathetic character. She’s been through a lot. And TBIs are fascinating. I studied them a bit in school as part of a psychology degree. But writing a main character whose brain injury has rendered surly, prone to insane fits of rage and poor judgment-especially when the reader didn’t know her previously as presumably a not-horrible person-is quite a gamble. I just couldn’t bring myself to care what happened to Dani one way or the other.35
