Stuck in a traffic jam, Nicki Clements sees a face of a police officer she hoped never to see again, stopping each car on Elmhirst Road. Keen to avoid him, Nicki does a U-turn and makes a panicky escape. Or so she thinks. The next day, Nicki is pulled in for questioning in connection with the murder of Damon Blundy, controversial newspaper columnist and resident of Elmhirst Road. Nicki can't answer any of the questions detectives fire at her. She has no idea why the killer used a knife in such a peculiar way, or why 'HE IS NO LESS DEAD' was painted on Blundy's study wall, nor can she explain why she avoided Elmhirst Road that day without revealing the secret that could ruin her life. Because although Nicki is not guilty of murder, she is far from innocent.

I read this book because it is on the Library's list of Psychological Thriller authors. I feel ripped off. It was a mediocre Mystery; overlong, tedious and with long sections of police procedural. There was none of the edge of your seat, page-turning suspense I associate with a psychological thriller. Even when the killer was named, the explanation went on and on, page after page after page. I won't waste my time with this author again.

I always enjoy Sophie Hannah's books, but sometimes she over-complicates the story too much.
