Publisher's Summary

On a cold January morning, a nightmare awaits in a small Sussex village. A deranged young man goes on the rampage, shooting everyone in his path before taking his own life. It is a senseless, tragic event, but sadly not an unfamiliar one. At least, that's what everyone thinks. Only Julia Trent - believed to be the sole survivor - knows there was a second man involved. But after being shot and badly injured, her account of the massacre is ignored. But she cannot let it rest there.
Together with Craig Walker, the journalist son of one of the victims, Julia sets out to find the truth. As they peel back the layers of a dark and dangerous conspiracy, they discover the slaughter didn't begin on that bitter day in January. And worst of all, it won't end there...

Most annoying narration

I found the predictable, dull narration so distracting that I was unable to decide if the book might be well written. The main female character is definitely several sizes too naive and dumb for my taste. Somehow, the plot was apparently captivating enough to help me suffer through to the end. I can only hope that I will eventually be able to erase the narrator's repetitive sing song from my ear. Being a fluent reader surely cannot be the only requirement for an audiobook narrator?

Fits & starts

The tempo kept getting stuck. Begins with a bang but ..... It dragged me to the end which I should say does have a final final endearing twist but much of the action seemed laboured in getting there.

I am glad this wasn’t the first Tom Bale book I came across

As the heading says, I really am glad this wasn’t my first Tom Bale book. If it had of been, I can honestly say, I would have missed out on his other great books like Terrors Reach and Blood Falls. Those books were outstanding.

This story is not great. It does get better towards the end but the narration left me cold. I kept drifting off and losing the plot line. Having said this, it is only my personal preference. I like narrators like Paul Thornley and Armand Schultz.

If this is your first Tom Bale experience, give the other titles a listen. You will be pleasantly surprised.
