Twisted tale of family secrets

Gripping and great narration
This is the first book I've listened to with this narrator - Adjoa Andoh - and I thought she was superb. I would definitely listen to other stories she is telling.
The book itself is really gripping although I did guess one of the twists towards the end but really enjoyed it from start to finish. The narration really was excellent especially in places where the lead character was experiencing fear and anxiousness and you could hear it in the narration so well.
Definitely one to add to your list.
When You Disappeared
- By: John Marrs
- Narrated by: Simon Mattacks, Elizabeth Knowelden
- Length: 9 hrs and 45 mins
All she wanted was the truth, but she'll wish she never found out. When Catherine wakes up alone one morning, she thinks her husband has gone for a run before work. But Simon never makes it to the office. His running shoes are by the front door. Nothing is missing - except him.
Disappointing - don't waste your credit

Where does When You Disappeared rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?
I LOVED this book - one of the top three I've listened to on Audible and I've listened to a lot!
What did you like best about this story?
The plot - excellent writing and story - the male character, oh I didn't like him at all. If someone can make you love or loathe their characters then they are a good writer.
Which character – as performed by Simon Mattacks and Elizabeth Knowelden – was your favourite?
I can't decide! I really was on her side but his character is so compelling and I had a love/hate relationship with the male character.
Did you have an emotional reaction to this book? Did it make you laugh or cry?
It didn't make me cry but I did feel emotional.
Any additional comments?
I have never left a review before but this book really is excellent. I have and will recommend to my friends.
