I was drawn in by the good reviews but left stumped as to why so many people rated it so highly. I found it badly written and tedious with the same things being repeated over and over. I found no empathy with any of the characters and struggled to listen to the end.
the narration was flat and boring.
overall a waste of a credit.
great story, well written and narrated. a real 'can't put it down' with an excellent unexpected twist. an added feature of 2 narrators gives more depth x
Excellent storyline and well narrated. Each chapter kept me gripped throughout not wanting to put it down. I would recommend this book with a perfect twist at the end. If you like psychological thrillers you wont be disappointed.
A long gripping story. Twists and turns followed by calm and that appears to have been the pattern. Builds it up then mellows. Constantly drip feeding you to want the next chapter. The last few keeping you totally addicted. Very good ending but sad.
I thought the story was excellent. It was very well read. I liked the use of the two voices. Lots of twists and turns. Definitely would recommend thus to others.
"Great psychological thriller"
Well written, fast pace with several twists. I really enjoyed this book it kept my attention all the way through!
"Oh man... a lot of twists !!"
This was pretty good- although it did contain some pretty intense scenes (rape) . It was a little hard to listen to sometimes. Good story though and great narration.
"Oh Snap.. Is She or isn't She The Girl You Lost?"
I absolutely would recommend this book to anyone into suspense and mystery. Although the premise is tragic as losing a child is life altering- it's also dark and nerve racking. You have to choose what to believe and who to believe. There's some sketchy characters and wondering who the male narrative is keeps you guessing until the end. Definitely worth the credit, in my opinion.
"Quite good ...."
This book moved along quickly. The accent wasn't too distracting - loved the male voice. Although I guessed the ending, it didn't spoil the story for me because I wasn't sure I was right until it was revealed. Creepy in parts but believable. I would recommend for soft thriller / mystery fans.
Had me guessing the entire time! Really enjoyed the story and would recommend to those who like a good suspense book!
"OMG i love this book and the end was amazing."
finding out if grace was her daughter.
my favorite scene was at the end, leaves you with your mouth open.
"Finished this book in 3 days."
Loved this book! I couldn't stop listening to it. it never slowed down. Great story!
"Great Great Great!!!!!!!"
Very good book. Parts are sad but it is a page turner! I enjoyed the book!
"Slow to Start, but worth it"
The story was exciting and unexpected. However, it did take a long time to get in to it. I almost stopped listening, but decided to push through and I am glad that I did.
This book was kind of slow and very predictable. There are better British mysteries out there, I would skip this one. There is nothing new or intriguing here.
