A shocking double-murder scene greets Detective Inspector Philip Brennan when he is called to a flat in Colchester. Two women are viciously cut open and laying spread-eagled, one tied to the bed, one on the floor. The woman on the bed has had her stomach cut into and her unborn child is missing. But this is the third time Phil and his team have seen such an atrocity. Two other pregnant women have been killed in this way and their babies taken from them. No one can imagine what sort of person would want to commit such horrible crimes. When psychologist Marina Esposito is brought in, Phil has to put aside his feelings about their shared past and get on with the job. But can they find the killer before another woman is targeted?

Editorial Reviews

Editorial Reviews

“A crackling read that promises to keep you up all night.” Sun (London)
“A fantastic debut.” Marie Claire (UK)
“With a plot line that ensnares from the off, and a comprehensive cast of characters, Carver’s debut novel sets the crime thriller bar high. A hard act to follow.” Irish Examiner
“Carver’s expert timing is aided by her prose, deceptively laconic but with a constant forward push…Plot devices are spun until they scream, and even the Perils of Pauline ending works enough startling changes to keep you up past lights-out.” Booklist (starred review)
“In Carver’s impressive debut, an intense British police procedural, Colchester Det. Insp. Philip Brennan and his team investigate the gruesome murders of pregnant women whose unborn children are cut from their bodies…Carver never crosses the line into gratuitous violence, while myriad clues and surprising twists keep the reader off-kilter. Fans of Mo Hayder, Chelsea Cain, and Karin Slaughter will find much to like.” Publishers Weekly
“Shocking, gruesome, and compelling…this book is so powerful you just won’t want it to end.” Peterborough Evening Telegraph
“Tania Carver delivers a dark, sexy thriller in her relentlessly suspenseful debut The Surrogate. If you haven’t discovered this talented newcomer yet, hurry. She’s on her way to the top.” Richard Montanari, award-winning author

Grippingly Scary

I strive to find the more creepy and grasping novels to listen to, as they provide the right amount of distraction and engagement for my work life. Tania Carver has crafted a righteously psychotic thriller. Her imagery paints a picture so clear, that when coupled with Mark Meadows' voice, transports you to the very scene of many of the crimes. I find myself looking for more titles by Carver, and more titles read by Meadows.
