Publisher's Summary

Kat and Scott Hamilton are dealing with the hardest of losses: the death of their only child. While Scott throws himself back into his law practice in Los Angeles, Kat is hesitant to rejoin the workplace and instead spends her days shell-shocked and confused, unable to focus.

When an unwelcome face from Kat's past in England emerges - the beautiful and imposing Sarah Cherrington - Kat's marriage is thrown into a tailspin. Now wealthy beyond anything she could have imagined as a girl, Sarah appears to have everything she could need or want. But Sarah has an agenda and she wants one more thing. Soon Kat and Scott are caught up in her devious games and power plays.

Against the backdrops of Southern California and Sussex, in spare and haunting prose, Mary McCluskey propels this domestic drama to its chilling conclusion.

    "touching and well crafted"

    Though written in the third person, the telling of a mother's grief is thorough and touching. The title is a hint that all is not what it seems and the story proceeds at an excellent pace to the final revelation and satisfying result.

    "overall....wonderful listen. twist out of the blue"

    this book was wonderful. The narration was spot on between the characters and their accents for home origin wad awesome. I was seriously surprised by the twist. I find I can usually call it, never saw this one coming! Great listen for anyone. The story makes you feel for the characters. It is so common for a lot of people so the relate ability is wonderful. The narrator has such a smooth comforting voice she just lulls you through the story. I would definitely recommend this book for someone who wants heartfelt without mushy...a little struggle and some strong, independent women main characters who lead you through a surprising plot!

    Story
    "Worth listening to"

    Although I did not find the book as thrilling or as much of a psychological thriller as claimed, I did find it entertaining. The ending, in my opinion, was predictable. This was still a good book. It is very difficult to come up with a new story line so most are just a twist on stories that have already been written. This does a good job of that and is worth the time. The narrator does a fine job, she was easy to listen to and kept it interesting. This is a book I would recommend for a light read. I did receive this book at no cost in exchange for my honest and unbiased review from audiobook boom.

    "A real page turner"

    Fabulous suspense story. My heart ached for Kat. Her grief was so intense, and reader and author did a fabulous job of bringing that alive. The descriptions were thorough enough to draw me in, but not so overwhelming that I wanted to turn it off.

    Story
    "Expecting a little more"
    Would you say that listening to this book was time well-spent? Why or why not?

    Yes, listening to anything to figure out what you like and don't like always is beneficial.


    What was the most interesting aspect of this story? The least interesting?

    The dynamic between the two women.


    What did you like about the performance? What did you dislike?

    I felt the characters were well defined.


    Could you see Intrusion being made into a movie or a TV series? Who should the stars be?

    I think in this situation, unfortunately the movie would end up being better than the book. This is not normally the case.


    Any additional comments?

    I think the book was okay, but I expected a little more scandal, or twists and turns. It seemed to focus a lot on grief.

    "Kept me intrigued."

    Although I quickly knew where the story was headed, it was certainly worth the ride. Karen Peakes gives a wonderful performance with her soothing narration. This is my first Mary McCluskey book and I am very impressed. I will be looking for others written by her.

    "You Had Me Right Up to the Lackluster Ending"

    I was intrigued by this book and couldn't wait to see where it went, but it was a bit of a let down. It kept me engaged the entire time, but the ending was abrupt and left something to be desired.

    Story
    "Pain is pallatable"
    Would you say that listening to this book was time well-spent? Why or why not?

    I like to be entertained by a book. The main character's pain was too heavy for too long. I felt like I was drowning in her sorrow rather being entertained.


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

    I felt the book trudged on for a good 75% of the story and then finally got interesting at the end.


    What three words best describe Karen Peakes’s voice?

    Her British accents were soothing and it was easy to tell which character she was playing


    If this book were a movie would you go see it?

    No
