The author had me on my toes, wanting more. Once I started listening to this book, I simply could not stop. There was just enough suspense to keep you wanting more. I love the way the narrator portrays each of the characters and I feel does an excellent job of getting across exactly what the author is looking for. This book is a 5 Star, in my world!

This was one of my favourite read/listens this year. A great mystery/thriller it is book 2 of a series - I haven't read book 1 But book 2 can easily be read as a standalone.
Luca is a Florida police detective, he is believable and dare I say "lovable".. A dogged cop that just keeps on and hates not closing cases.
well crafted story that keeps you guessing, and keeps you turning pages. I will be looking for more from Dan Petrosini as both books I have read are top class.
Andrew Starts narration is in tune with the book and is clear and concise and makes for easy listening.

Generally I am not a big fan of mystery novels, but had previously enjoyed another one by this author in a different genre and gave this one ago, finding it an enjoyable listen on the whole.
One stylistic choice that he thankfully used a lot less later in the book was repeatedly having the characters bringing up the price of properties and maybe this is something that is true to people from that area, but for somebody outside that area it just seemed slightly annoying.
This book is predominantly told from the perspective of Detective Luca and from that of Dom Stewart, the latter being the best friend of the person (Phil) who has been reported missing by his wife Robin. The book follows these characters through an interesting series of twists and turns until we eventually find out what has happened to Phil and later on who was responsible for what happened.
The narrator did a good job with this book and his voices for the various characters were distinctive enough that they probably didn't need to keep announcing the switch of perspective at the start of each chapter due to his performance.
Overall, an enjoyable book that kept me reading to find out which twist would prove to be the conclusive one, it is the second book in a series, but is perfectly fine to listen to as a standalone too.
