A really gripping storyline and absolutely no idea about the twist until the very end.
I genuinely loved listening to this book and drove slowly to work every day so I could get as much listening time as possible!
Very highly recommended.

A dark and gripping debut psychological thriller with a horrifying premise and a stinging twist. Alex Taylor wakes up tied to an operating table. The man who stands over her isn't a doctor. The choice he forces her to make is utterly unspeakable. But when Alex re-awakens, she's unharmed - and no one believes her horrifying story. Ostracised by her colleagues, her family and her partner, she begins to wonder if she really is losing her mind. And then she meets the next victim.

From early on the ‘twist ‘ was predictable. Think I only Kept going with the story because one of the reviews it said that you would never guess the twist, so I thought I must be wrong. It was so obvious.
Really wish I hadn’t bothered wasting so much of my life on this book.

A new family moves in over the road. The new family is acting strange. This new family has some secrets. From the author of Audible's Thriller of the Year, Silent Child, comes another psychological thriller to keep you guessing until the very end. Performed by Sophie McShera, (Daisy Mason, Downton Abbey), enter the world of a family broken by lies, a woman traumatised by a dark past, and a child caught in the crossfire.

Really enjoyed the story from start to finish. Wasn’t predictable at all.
I enjoyed the mix of the old and the new story, although the new story often went into irrelevant detail about the library.
Narrator was very good apart from a very dodgy Australian accent!
I would definitely recommend this book and I am now looking at getting more from the same author.

Introducing Audible's Thriller of the Year: Silent Child by Sarah A. Denzil, performed by Joanne Froggatt. In the summer of 2006, Emma Price watched helplessly as her six-year-old son's red coat was fished out of the River Ouse. It was the tragic story of the year - a little boy, Aiden, wandered away from school during a terrible flood, fell into the river, and drowned. His body was never recovered. Ten years later Emma has finally rediscovered the joy in life...until Aiden returns.

Cass is having a hard time since the night she saw the car in the woods and the woman who was killed. Since then she's been forgetting everything: where she left the car, if she took her pills, the alarm code, why she ordered a pram when she doesn't have a baby.... What she can't forget is the woman she might have saved, the terrible nagging guilt, the silent calls she's receiving and the feeling that someone's watching her.

I felt like I knew who the perpetrator was from the very start. I wasn't spot-on but I wasn't far-off.
That said I didn't think it was a really exciting book to listen to, especially the last two hours, which I saved so I could listen to them on my dog walk!
Having read a couple of books now by this author I would certainly read another.
