Publisher's Summary

What if your best friend’s child disappears? On your watch? What would you do? This is exactly what happens to Lisa Kallisto one freezing December in the English Lakes. Her whole world descends into the stuff of nightmares. Because, not only is 13-year-old Lucinda missing, and not only is it all Lisa’s fault, but she’s the second teenage girl to disappear within a fortnight. And the first one turned up stripped bare, after suffering from a terrifying ordeal.
Wracked with guilt over her mistake, and after being publicly blamed by Lucinda’s family, Lisa sets out to right the wrong. But as she begins peeling away the layers surrounding Lucinda’s disappearance, Lisa learns that all is not as it first appears to be.

A very satisfying 'read'

Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?

Yes - it's an intriguing story which has a satisfactory ending. The reader captured the various characters very well and the pace of her reading was perfect. The likely identity of the child abductor is fascinating. Throughout, the reader's suspicions are led here and there resulting in a credible conclusion. It occurred to me more than once that if Lisa and the detective leading the case could have compared all the trivial things that were niggling them they'd have reached a solution earlier - entirely true to life. The author's explanation of how she was led to write the story (at the end of the book) was very interesting, and her acknowledgment of how hard life can be for mothers who have partners, families, jobs and sundry other responsibilities was sincere and understandable.

Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

I seldom have the chance to listen to a title all in one sitting - even when I'm on a long car journey I have to stop for coffee and leg-stretches. In practice, my listening takes place in 30-minute chunks; the length of my drive to work. This didn't detract from my enjoyment of the book, but it did mean I was keen to get back in the car at the end of the working day!

Any additional comments?

My usual genre is Crime, with occasional forays into Human Interaction. This title does include crime and police procedures, but the interaction of the characters is more important to the story. I'll certainly look out for further books by Paula Daly, hopefully they'll be read by Laura Brattan!

I don't usually write a review unless the book is outstanding - after all whether one enjoys a book or not is a matter of taste.
After struggling and sometimes failing to complete a rather bad selection I'd chosed from Audible - along came this book - it has revguvenated my appetite for audio books again!

No spoilers - surfice to say that in my opinion this is one of the best audio books I've had the pleasure of listening to in a while. The story line is well thought out and progresses in a very realistic manner. The narrator is in my top 3 - she is excellent.

I look forward to hearing more from both author and narrator - thank you both for a book that captured my imagination at a time when it was in dire need of being captured!! :-D
