Publisher's Summary

A shadow follows Sophie. Watching. Waiting.

Her instinct tells her that it's someone she knows. But who? The man she met Internet dating? The nurse caring for her ill mother? Or is her mother faking her illness?

The only thing she knows is that she can't trust anyone. Sophie must delve into a dark history to reveal her stalker. But there are some stories that should never be told.

    "good portrait of Alzhimers"

    I found this story to go on a little and drag out, the ending was a disappointment for the very long buildup to it. I won't be in a rush to read other books from this author.

    This one was Predictable and the reader was terrible. Skip this one and save yourself a credit.

    "No sure why this got such great reviews...."

    This was boring and weird. The narrator sounded like a little old grandmother. Yikes- don't even waste your time.

    Story
    "Decent"

    Not so bad. Sofie is a woman with an abusive mother, a timid personality and a lonely life.
    She begins to be stalked and the story leads to learning who is behind it.

    While not exciting in anyway, it passes the time nicely and seemed to keep my interest.

    "The Broken Ones"

    Kept my interest. Well written. I had the audible version and liked the narrator. The ending surprised me. I received the PDF version at no charge but paid for the audible version. The book is not the usual type of mystery but it is an enjoyable mysterious. I would like to read more books by this author.

    Story
    "Mind Bending Suspense"

    This is a great mind messing book. Not give to much away, you do feel sorry for the mane character and wonder the whole time if her mother has finally pushed her off the deep end. The ending is sickly satisfying.

    Story
    "A mystery with a Hitchcock atmosphere"

    An English school teacher spends her nights caring for her mother who is declining with early-onset Alzheimer's. It's not a happy chore, caring for a woman who was angry and cruel when she was a child and is no more pleasant under the burden of this disease.

    Strange things begin to happen. Lost keys. A found button. Memories of a shadow friend. Her mother wakes in the dark hours telling of a presence in her room. 

    Soon she learns that her mother carries a horrible secret.

    Denzil has created a mystery in the Hitchcock tradition as strange events compile around a lonely woman. The reader is teased along wondering whether it's the mother, a man from an online dating site who she only met for tea, or is she the one doing these things with no memory? It has the feel and pace of a horror story until there's a sudden shift in the action and the ending may make you question your own feelings. In any case it's an unusual book that is an interesting and often spooky read. Your ultimate feeling about the book will probably depend on whether or not you accept the sudden change in action and the mystery's reveal. I won't spoil a bit of it for you but I'm still pondering the twist and the ending a few days after finishing the book.

    Alison Larkin deserves particular praise for a really exceptional reading.

    Story
    "unclear"

    The book was very interesting and kept the reader questioning. but I don't respect authors who can't prepare for an ending and leave it up to the reader to quess. After building character development one thinks, then to leave it hanging. So I would not recommend this.

    "B wright"

    Started off slow and picked up towards the end. I wish it had more excitement after the first couple of chapters, but glad it finally got interesting. Not too bad of a read.

    Story
    "Suspenseful and brilliant reading"

    The story was refreshingly new and was brilliantly read by Alison Larkin. The Voice differentiation for characters was amazing. The story itself kept me hooked and I couldn't wait to finish the very last bit. Living with an Alzheimer patient is difficult and the author took you straight there.
