I am a big fan of Michael Robotham and have listened to all other books by him available on audible. Unfortunately this one is only available in an abridged version that has been shortened to incoherent nonsense. People are suddenly dead and you have no idea when and why that had happened. Alisha and Ruiz are one minute in Amsterdam, in the next sentence they are back in London. I checked my iPod several times if I accidentally had fast forwarded but unfortunately hadn't.
Worsened is the whole experience by the narrator Deni Francis, her monotone in-compassionate voice might be perfect for insomniacs or narrating chick-lit with permanent navel-gazing but is not suitable for a fast-paced crime novel (no comparison to Sean Barret or Crispin Redman).
If you like Michael Robotham, please do not buy this audio book, wait until an unabridged version will be available.

I am very surprised that this is a Michael Robotham. It's awful - really not up to his usual wonderful standard, and Ruiz seems to be a different person I am forcing myself to finish it. Narrater didn't help either - very boring. Same, because I am a real Robotham fan :(
