Publisher's Summary

When an old man strikes up a conversation with her on the steps of St Paul's and makes a mystifying allusion to a murder and an oddly familiar comment about her grandmother, Kate Murphy is intrigued. But she never gets to hear the rest of Andrew Deacon's tale. Shocked by his unexpected death, Kate becomes drawn into an investigation uncovering secrets about the grandmother she thought she knew and the man she never did. And she soon realises her questions are putting lives in danger...

Very good

I liked this one a lot. It took me a little time to warm to the narrator - perhaps because I'm more used to the English/male, rather than the Canadian/female voice, in my thrillers - but ultimately the narration was good.
The story reminded me of Robert Goddard novels - with a mystery from the past being investigated by a present-day descendant. The story followed several lines that all tied together nicely at the end, making it a worthwhile listen.

A Mystery at it's Best.

Emma Cole's 'Every Secret Thing' was everything you'd want in a good old fashion mystery but there was nothing old fashion in this amazing modern style story for today's demanding listeners. Brilliant from beginning to end. I would certainly recommend it.

Totally enthralling

This book has induced me to write my first review. I loved it. Perhaps because I was born in 1947 and therefore heard many stories of the Second World War from my family, certainly because I particularly enjoy books that merge stories from different periods in time, this novel really caught my attention. I loved the modern detective story married to the gentle romance of the1940s protagonists. The author's use of language, her powers of description were so involving - I felt at certain major points in the novel that I was standing there with the characters. Emma Cole seemed to have such a deep connection to her main characters that I felt I knew them intimately and really cared about their fate. The narration was excellent with the exception of the Portuguese names but that's a very minor irritation which wouldn't bother most listeners. I hope there will be more books from Emma Cole. Another book that affected me similarly was Geraldine Brooks The People of the Book, also a superb novel
