I enjoyed this novel and found the characters to be interesting and the plot riveting. The story is told in a somewhat disjointed way that jumps back and forward in time- not just from present to past, but also within chapters, where something is mentioned and then expanded on in a later chapter, so the reader will find it important to pay close attention to what is said in order not to miss important plot points. The narration was good. The suspense built up in a way that made me want to keep listening to the very end. Overall, a well-done suspense novel that focuses on character development and plot, rather than police procedural. Recommended.

After listening to "I am Watching You" I have been waiting for this new book by the same author. It did not disappoint. There were some commonalities but I'm pleased to say that it is a completely fresh story full of intrigue and suspense.
The police investigation in this story plays only a small part, the story is almost all about Sophie and her family who moved from London to the rural South West where they meet Emma (the friend). The suspense is largely delivered by the use of multiple time frames. There are so many different time frames towards the end of the book, jumping back and forth that it took some concentration. The final epilogue tied up all the loose ends in a very satisfactory way.
Luckily there was a lot more to the story than they give away in the official trailer. It is not all about the girl on the train trying to rush back home, far from it.
I'm not sure I liked the narrator's voice much. It mostly sounded clipped and angry when I think she was really trying to convey a tone of distress.
In all, a good read/listen. I would recommend it.

I found this book OK. The storyline was fairly good, a little loose at the end but it kept me interested.
I struggled with the narrator. She had an awful voice, felt far too harsh and rushed. Wouldnt listen to her again unfortunately.
