This is the kind of book that stays with you long after you finish. You could feel the depth and quality of the story. The editing was brilliant! Not a wasted, word here. A kidnapped child is not exactly fresh ground in a psychological thriller, but the author's clever depiction of the back story made this exciting and fresh.
The performance was genius! Without giving too much away, the narrator was able to create a very chilling persona for an unnamed character within a character. Next to Imogen Church, Lucy Price - Lewis is my favorite narrator and the only one I've heard who can hold a candle to Church. She'd made a crappy story tolerable with her talent.
This book is a thriller, but it's so much more than that. Many books in this genre don't allow you to appreciate why someone made the horrible decisions they made. Robotham created such a tragic story for his protagonist that I found myself justifying every despicable thing the character did. I actually rooted for the character, even though it conflicted with the sound judgement I would've credited myself with before hearing this story.
I wish every book were this good, or, at least, half this good, but I realize I enjoyed it more because they just aren't. I highly encourage you to buy this book, because it just might make you appreciate what you're currently taking for granted. It's on a whole new level.
