Publisher's Summary

Shortlisted for the British Book Awards, Popular Fiction Award, 2007.

Keep your friends close and your enemies closer. And your family should be closest of all.

Patrick Brodie is on the way up. He knows exactly how far he's prepared to go to get what he wants. And he wants it all. Now. Before long, Patrick has become a legend in his own lifetime. Violently.

The kind of women Patrick Brodie is normally attracted to have no illusions, no foolish dreams of marriage, children, or, Gold help him, love. But Lily Diamond is different. Together they are determined that their children will have everything they didn't, no matter what.

But the unthinkable happens, and Lily is left on her own to look after their family in a dangerous world. A world where no one can be trusted. The Brodies must stay close to survive. But as everyone knows, your sins will find you out.

    Would you recommend this book to a friend? Why or why not?

    i would love to recommend this book as i have read it over the years since it was released and was very happy to learn the audio had an unabridged version. well that is not true the book is abridged version but comes up as other. it fantastic if you dont know the full story if you do it is frustrating as so much is removed.


    What was your reaction to the ending? (No spoilers please!)

    it was good


    What about Nicola Duffett’s performance did you like?

    yeah she was good her Jamaican accent sounds more like Scottish lol


    Was Close worth the listening time?

    yeah even though its not the full book :(


    Any additional comments?

    take it out of unabridged its not.
