A thrilling tale of suspense from the CWA Diamond winner and best-selling author of the Roy Grace series, read by Matt Addis. Susan and John Carter are crazy about each other, and life is perfect but for one thing - they are on the brink of financial disaster. Surely being a surrogate mother to another man's child won't harm such a strong relationship? Especially when the mysterious Mr Sarotzini is offering to save their home and business - everything they've worked for.

Not his best in my opinion.The storyline constantly seemed to go in a promising direction only to fall rather flat. The continuous references and descriptions of pain got rather tedious and irritating.

Ok story but in an attempt to be clever, it gets carried away with detail when Id worked out the basic ending by chapter 30. This is why I gave it an average rating

Much has been written about this tragic case but this is the most common sense version i have read according to the known facts.when you look at all the evidence,it is quite clear to me that the intruder theory is totally ridiculous. Hopefully,little jonbenet will one day get some justice.
