An unforgettable,gripping and twisted tale by the deliciously talented Caroline Mitchell. Compelling and dark with wonderfully crafted characters, impeccably written with a captivating, unpredictable, explosive ending. Highly recommended reading for the crime genre lovers. Definitely one that will garner legions of fans and hopefully spawning a steady release of books featuring the brilliant Detective Ruby Preston. In short, a book that will grab you by the balls and won't let go. Loved it.
"Excellent Suspense Thriller!"
This is a great listen, and the first by Caroline Mitchell to really grab hold of me and relentlessly keep me interested. The first in a new Mitchell series featuring DS Ruby Preston, Shoreditch police are up against a truly villainous killer who preys on women who have long ago put a child up for adoption.
DS Preston walks the edge as a devoted cop with age-long tenuous ties to the criminal underworld, and deftly shows her struggle to play it straight while sometimes resorting to reaching out to gather intelligence from unsavory characters.
Emma Newman's narration was pitch-perfect as she dealt with a wide range of characters and accents both male and female. Her narration lends much to the story.
Absolutely, and I nearly did, without being toooo late for work!
I highly recommend this book. It's got everything great going for it as a psychological suspense novel as well as a fine mystery- wrong turns, grisly crimes, seedy underbelly and laudable cops, and a damn scary killer. I really liked it and look forward to more in this series!
Yes! The narrator wasn't the best but it's hard to do anything bad to this story. It would pull you in no matter who is reading it to you! She wasn't a bad narrator but there are better.
Can you imagine….doing what you think it right and the best for a child, your child, and later that child comes looking for you with a twisted happily ever after dream?! That’s what this book essentially is about. There’s a lot going on in this book and we get introduced to a lot. I can’t wait for book two. I want more Ruby and Nathan!! I get excited for Mitchell’s books for a lot of reasons but her ability to make characters come alive is a gift, not just her main characters either, I want more of Eve, Worrow, Downes, and Cathy! You can tell everyone has some secrets behind their doors!
I really like when I get to know the people behind the story. Ruby sounds like she’s going to have a super interesting story and I like her love triangle. Both her options at love seem to be good choices, but of course, she wants the one that’s a bit more difficult. Life can never be easy, especially in a thriller! I was through this book in 3 days! I just gobbled it up.
I pride myself on being able to pick out the murderer pretty quickly in books, but this book, I was never sure. I thought I knew who it was but it was only who Mitchell wanted me to think it was. This storyline is just superb!! I can tell you, you will NOT know the ending until you get there!! It’s a shocker!
YES!! I've read the book but even reading the book you can't help but get into the audio book. I listened to this withing 4 days. It was great!!! I only took 1 star away from the performance because I felt like the narrator could have tried harder but that isn't on the book.
If you don't want to listen to the book you HAVE to read it!! It's such a good book!
It took a long time for me to get into this book. The narrator droned on, seemingly unable to do more than just read the words in the book. Perhaps a different narrator would have made this book easier to get into. Nonetheless, there finally came a point where I did not want to put the book down. I'm glad I kept listening because the ending was a complete surprise and actually made the book worthwhile. However, I will not be buying the sequels. With audible books, the same narrator usually does all the books in a series, and I do not look forward to listening to her again.
