Well maybe not quite real springtime yet but the snows have receded in the UK and this book is a genuinely hot story. Paris is forging a strong reputation and this book can surely only enhance it. Bring Me Back is a character driven thriller blessed with quality writing and a clever plot with plenty of twists and turns.
The book is perfectly formed for the joint narration of Kevin Hely and Cathleen McCarron and for my tastes they perfectly exploit this giving excellent performances. When a character shouts Hely in particular doesn't hold back and while I know this isn't to everyone's taste I like it good and loud when it's appropriate. Their accents add to the authenticity of the characters and make for very enjoyable listening.
The story itself follows Finn whose girlfriend Layla disappeared mysteriously twelve years ago on the return journey from a skiing holiday. And yes Layla gets him on his knees and what's more it takes him some time to recover. The narrative is split between the present day and the past and is particularly well-structured towards the end.
A thriller that doesn't overly rely on violence and profanity yet still kept me glued between my headphones until I heard "Audible hopes you enjoyed" . . . I certainly did!

I am usually quite quick at working out the plot line of a thriller but this one kept me guessing until the reveal. The author was one step away from me the whole time. I don’t usually choose male narrators but as this is one of my favourite authors I thought I’d give it a go. In fact, the narration was excellent and I think this book is just as good as the author’s previous two. I listened to it practically in one day! I’m really hoping there is another tale on the way from this talented writer. Would highly recommend.

really silly..as if you could live with a woman..intimacy and the whole bit..and not recognise her because she cut her hair a bit and put a darker rinse in it. His voice roaring on was annoying and the story totally unbelievable. oh..and how she she get a dog all the way to Lewis..trains and planes? Not believable at all.
Whilst this didn't have the thriller content of the Authors other two books, it was still very good and I am still definitely a BA Paris fan.
