Publisher's Summary

Young and athletic, London cycle courier Astrid Bell is bad luck - for other people. First Astrid's neighbour Peggy Farrell accidentally knocks her off her bike - and not long after is found bludgeoned to death in an alley. Then, a few days later, Astrid is asked to pick up a package from a wealthy woman called Ingrid de Soto, only to find the client murdered in the hall of her luxurious home.
For the police, it's more than coincidence. For Astrid and her six housemates, it's the beginning of a nightmare: suspicious glances, bitter accusations, fallings out, and a growing fear that the worst is yet to come. Because it's true that bad luck comes in threes.... Who will be the next to die?

Monologue of nothing

After a promising first half of the book the second half of this book was terrible. It was a narrative of a serial killer going over information you already knew. I tried to keep listening to see it would improve but the monolugue just continued.

Until it's over

Awful! I have always enjoyed Nicci French's books but have not heard an audiobook before - but this was dreadful. The narrator in the second part (the man) was dreadful, he sounded like he came from a very poor amateur dramatics group. The story also didn't ring true in the sense that the murders were so far fetched, it was hard to be convinced. It didn't help that the actual recording was very poor, it was definately the weakest storyline I've heard and the poor narration didn't help.

Thin plot spoils a good narrator and good writing

This is well written and well read so is an enjoyable light listen, but the plot is so thin it feels like Ive been cheated paying a credit for it. Nicci French is usually a favourite of mine, being a husband and wife writing team, but I think this novel must've been one of their first novels reissued. The settimg for the story is a student ish house share in east London, the price of the house is one hundred thousand, these two aspects alone date the story. The main character Astrid, a bike messenger does not work at all, I disliked her to the extend I expected a twist where she was a serial killer too. The only interesting character is Davy, the killer, he is outed early and we follow his story so where is the whodunnit ? Where is the plot ? It's just a case of waiting for bodies to pile up until he's caught and that's it. Disappointing.
