The must hear new thriller from the best-selling author of Safe House.
Nick Miller and his team provide a unique and highly illegal service, relocating at-risk individuals across Europe with new identities and new lives. Nick excels at what he does for a reason: he's spent years living in the shadows under an assumed name.
But when Nick steps in to prevent the attempted murder of witness-in-hiding Kate Sutherland on the Isle of Man, he triggers a chain of events with devastating consequences for everyone he protects - because Nick and Kate share a common enemy in Connor Lane, a man who will stop at nothing to get what he wants, even if it means tearing Nick's entire network apart.

Listened to the end, but it was touch-and-go.
Read clearly, and distinguished between characters, although range of voices was limited
An odd book. Starts by presenting the 'hero' as a consumate professional - a bit like Liam Neeson in 'Taken' - but then the rest of the book shows him as a kind of bumbling amateur, making increasingly unlikely decisions.Found plot and characters unconvincing.
The great story and the suspense...the way it was told and unfolded! Chris Ewan never disappoints! The different twists were so good...no spoilers from me! I think you have to be able to take in/absorb these sort of plot lines to enjoy them, as I did. Lot's of characters and different leads....thoroughly enjoyed putting my brain into gear getting round them all!
Becky!!! What a great lady!!
Mike Rogers did Chris proud. The way he managed to make all the different characters come to life, even the little girl...she was particularly good! Well done Mike!
Can't think of one...but it was quite 'Shocking, emotional, violent, tense and romantic'
Chris Ewan is one of my favourite authors. I fully recommend anyone who's not read anything from him before, to give it a go. Also, his Good Thief Guide books! Well done Chris! :-) And thank you! Debs
It was an exciting listen never staying in one place and keeping you guessing
Michael Ridpath and Camilla Lacksberg stories because they capture you with the story characters
I think the opening as it draws you into the story
No it wasn't. You need to digest the action before moving on
As a recently retired "young" pensioner! I now have more time to read and listen to Audio Books as I renovate my house in Spain.
This is a complex and interesting plot, with well developed characters. It could be the start of a series . The idea of helping those in need to disappear, the keeping them safe whilst they're hiding is intriguing and this author puts in enough twists and turns to keep you guessing and wondering where he'll take you next. The narrator was reasonable, but he didn't seem to have a great range of male voices or accents, they were all pretty similar. His pace and expression were good though so I'd listen to more of his and definite by more by the author.
"Nowhere nearly as good as his other books."
The story does illustrate how difficult it would be to live isolated from the people you love. I found there were too many characters to follow; when one is listening it is not that easy to flip back to see where the character fits in. The hard copy maybe a more cohesive way to enjoy this book.
I don't think I'd recommend it to anyone that doesn't have at least a couple of hours free at a time to listen to it as the plot is somewhat involved and the characters are numerous.
Didn't have one.
I think it would make a decent movie but not the type of movie I'd be interested in. I mainly read.
