Publisher's Summary

Nine-year-old Louis Drax lies in a coma in a hospital bed, re-living the events that led to his near-fatal fall into a ravine. Despite being attracted to the boy's mother Natalie Drax, Louis' doctor, Pascal Dannachet, begins reluctantly to question her version of Louis' accident and the apparent culpability of her missing husband.

As the boy struggles to communicate from within his coma, the chilling truth emerges....

    Story
    "Decent suspense story but..."

    Slightly turgid prose and poor narration just didn't do it justice. Always difficult having an adult do a child's voice but this one also had an Australia twang. The main adult voice was flat and did nothing to engage the listener.

    "Not bad"

    Liz Jensen writes some unusual thrillers, with compelling characters. This story is well narrated and so easy to listen, it's an ideal listen for a long flight. Quite gripping and probably more meaningful than most thrillers out there.

    "Intriguing, but easy to figure out"

    The content was intriguing, but the mystery was easily solved in my opinion. It's a nice short piece to read on a plane ride or something. Easy to listen to.

    "Disappointing..."

    I bought this book after seeing the commercials for the upcoming movie and was interested in the story. I've decided I won't be seeing the movie unless they've made some major changes. Unfortunately, the secret at the end I had figured out before I even started the book. I was hoping for something different. I didn't actually care for Louis either. He came off too whiney and young. There was really no emotional tie to him. I had to continuously force myself to listen to the rest of it and was relieved when it was over. Overall, I think I'll be returning this one.
