I must say, I was engage from start to finish with this book. The author managed to keep me intrigued for the entire book, with its great writing, fast(ish) pace story-lines and gripping suspense.
The female heroine was perfectly written, strong, confident, a bit reckless and flawed. But as the story develops, she also manages to grow herself. She takes ownership of her situation and refuses to be defined by it, but eventually starts the process of healing.
The narrator was great for the female characters and so-so for the male. They weren't bad but some male characters kind of sounded the same.
Overall, I recommend this book. I was surprised by how much I enjoyed it and look forward to more works from Simon Wood.

This was a Kindle First pick for me and I picked up the audible version for a steep discount price. What a bargain for a high quality, entertaining read. Wood wastes no time introducing us to the two opposing forces in this thriller, and from the start I was hooked. I listened to the book as frequently as I could, on commutes and during my runs. There really isn't a slow moment in the book, you'll want to keep reading to find out how things will be resolved.

This storyline is distinctly so-so but what got me annoyed was the narration. Stilted, strange intonation meant that she sounded like a recorded message not a narrator. There seemed to be a full stop at end of sentences, only for her to add a name after a pause. Very distracting.
I can't imagine downloading anything that narrated by this woman.

Fast paced, entertaining, well narrated although I thought the male voices let it down a little. Plausible characters that you can relate too.

Very predictable story don't bother there are a lot better books around. The narrator made the male voices sound like carectors from Soody Doo
I felt for the character. She was likeable. But the story didn't surprise me. I felt all the events were just given. I also did not like how it was narrated. I didn't find the narrator engaging and I felt she didn't really get the story.
