I found this to be an addictive well told story. I wanted something different from the thriller genre but I usually struggle with romances. This, however, captivated me. The characters come alive and there is certainly room for a sequel. I wanted more.

I was dead for 13 minutes. I don't remember how I ended up in the icy water, but I do know this - it wasn't an accident, and I wasn't suicidal. They say you should keep your friends close and your enemies closer, but when you're a teenage girl, it's hard to tell them apart. My friends love me, I'm sure of it. But that doesn't mean they didn't try to kill me. Does it? 13 Minutes by Sarah Pinborough is a gripping psychological thriller about people, fears, manipulation and the power of the truth.

Loved this twisty turny adventurous journey through the minds of well thought out characters. An entertaining audible with fabulously addictive narration. Recommend.

Dare you close your eyes for even a few seconds? One, two, three... Lisa Dale shuts her eyes and counts to 100 during a game of hide-and-seek. When she opens them, her four-year-old daughter, Ella, is gone. Disappeared without a trace. The police, the media and Lisa's family all think they know who snatched Ella. But what if the person who took her isn't a stranger? What if they are convinced they are doing the right thing? And what if Lisa's little girl is in danger of disappearing forever?

Absolutely gripping. Lovely multiple narration. Twisty and turny without taking away the emotions evoked. Funny occasionally, intense, slow, uncomfortable, realistic. Ultimately heartwarming. Loved this book on audible.
