Publisher's Summary

It's often said that when tragedy strikes, the victims were simply in the wrong place at the wrong time. But not Harry and Alice French.
Assaulted by masked men looking for a mysterious package and a man named Renshaw, Alice and Harry manage to convince them that there has been a terrible mix-up.
But nothing prepares Alice and Harry for the web they find themselves trapped in after their assailants leave. Especially as Alice hasn't been completely honest.
After Harry is approached by a woman named Ruth who seems to know more than she's letting on, Alice and their baby, Evie, disappear. When Harry realises he's become a prime suspect in their disappearance, he seeks refuge with Ruth and demands answers, knowing keeping out of police clutches is the only way he'll track his family down.
But how safe really are Alice and Evie tucked away in Gloucestershire with the mysterious Renshaw?

What a dreadful book. One of the worst so called 'thrillers' I've ever laboured through.

Imagine a bunch of desperate thugs terrorising a young couple and a ruthless chase to catch them on the run as all manner of violent and sadistic things occur. Now add a baby. The most annoying character ever to appear in a book, baby Evie.
In what I can only assume is one of the least successful attempts at a school writing project ever, we are taken on a terrifying and thrilling journey filled with intrigue and danger with the constant irritation of baby Evie who needs a nappy change or a feed. A vicious and violent attack in this awful storyline, rather than grip and bind the listener to the plot will more than likely be interrupted by another crushingly boring observation on how the mind of a little baby might work. It may even startle or worry her. Bloody fights and vicious gangsters are of less of a concern here than formula milk and regular, undisturbed sleep for Evie. I congratulate the author for becoming a first time parent obviously, but keep your lovely baby observations for another book or maybe a Women's Weekly magazine please.
My advice to all my fellow Audibles...... Give this a big miss. It fails on every level.
