Publisher's Summary

A naked woman is perched on the edge of Clifton Suspension Bridge weeping into a mobile phone. Clinical psychologist Joseph O'Loughlin is only feet away, desperately trying to talk her down. She whispers, 'you don't understand,' and jumps. Later, Joe has a visitor - the woman's teenage daughter, a runaway from boarding school. She refuses to believe that her mother would have jumped off the bridge - not only would she not commit suicide, she is terrified of heights. Joe wants to believe her, but what would drive a woman to such a desperate act? Whose voice? What evil?

Not As Good As The Other Books

I love Michael Rowbotham's books but for me this was not his best. I kept wondering why Joe was being so dense and not considering he would have been a target of the killer, not taking any precautions with his wife or children - it was quite frustrating. There also too much pycho babble and too much unnecessary detail making the listen a bit tedious. I think I prefer the books where Ruiz has a bigger presence.

Sean Barrett was outstanding with the delivery of the story

Same same but different

I was looking forward to this. I enjoyed his previous books but unfortunately this one, although often enjoyable was frustrating. The main character often does things that are slightly incredulous and it is a little frustratingly predictable. I would write more but don't want to ruin the story for others.

This is the first I had heard of this author and I am very impressed.
The story has well rounded characters and moves along at a gripping pace. I listened to it more quickly than I've listened to other books, mainly because I was so drawn in to the story.
It certainly isn't a 'relax before you go to sleep' story!
The narration is excellent.
Of you enjoy Peter James' books I'm sure you'll like this.
I would thoroughly recommend this book and I shall be downloading more by this author..

Simply Brilliant!!

I used to think that crime books were 'two-a-penny' and I normally stay well away from the genre to avoid the disappointment of repeated cliches and predictable plots. But here is something different...

I clicked on the preview by chance and then risked the credit and found myself drawn into one of the best audio books I've ever downloaded.

The plot and character development are flawless and Sean Barrett's narration is top-notch!

Written in the first-person, the book alternates between 'good' and 'bad' and the style is both captivating and addictive. The book subtly digs its claws in at the beginning and then simply refuses to let you go. I got to a point where I simply could not stop listening until it was finished.

A Word of Warning! - Definitely not for the faint-hearted. The book is shocking at times (our 'bad guy' is really bad!) and some of the dialogue had me gasping out loud. How can someone be so cruel?

Warnings aside, this is a well polished, superbly narrated and credible story that is well worth a listen and I for one will be downloading some more from the same author / narrator.

On the edge of your seat!

At first I thought this story was going to follow a Hollywood plot - that's an unkind thing to say I know. But it soon become obvious this story was in a league of its own and I couldn't wait for every chance to listen to it. On the edge of your seat is a cliché, but it applies to this chilling and perplexing story. Shatter is an excellent book by Michael Robotham - I highly recommend it!
