I always loved Sharon Bolton from her first book, and this one is no exception althought it is a bit different from her previous ones. Characters are not especially lovable, but they are very well portrayed, even the secondary ones have their own personalities, I was never confusing or forgetting them, and this, especially in an audio versions, is something very important to me. The story was good, the ending unexpected but satisfactory, it left me speachless. Overall not my favourite Bolton's novel, but still one of my favourite book of this year. It's hard to find thrillers so well written and perfectly constructed, with no loose ends. It was also original, different from any other you could have read before.
At the beginning I didn't like very much the reader, but going on with the story she was perfect for that book, her interpretation making the experience even better. I will surely recommend this book, but if it is your first encounter with the author I would probably start with Sacrifice, or Lacey'serie. This is a wonderful book, but maybe not for everyone, because if you like lovable characters you won't find them here.
A book I had to keep listening too every spare moment. Very much liked the format and narration. Although I had worked out a bit of the ending I had not worked out how it all played out which was great for me. As i very often find I know the ending well before the end and I'm disappointed if I'm right. Recommend this book.

as a very slim person I was offended on behalf of the larger person who might of read this book! ,the story was over shadowed by the offensive way and sheer nastiness the author used an already picked on group of people in our society. shame because I only carried on this book out of need for a book club not because it was good. it should have gone in the bin where that type of attuuide belongs.

Great storyline, lots of good twists in the plot. Unfortunately the narrator sounds like she has a lisp and a fat tongue.

No content, no action. This book just went on and on like it was chasing its tail. I kept thinking 'I had heard this part' and kept having to check my bookmarks. There is just no point to it.
