One night, Annie went missing. Disappeared from her own bed. There were searches, appeals. Everyone thought the worst. And then, miraculously, after 48 hours, she came back. Though she couldn't, or wouldn't, say what had happened to her. But something happened to my sister. I can't explain what. I just know that when she came back, she wasn't the same. She wasn't my Annie. I didn't want to admit, even to myself, that sometimes I was scared to death of my own little sister.

After Sara’s father, famous sculptor Thomas “TR” Harlow, is badly injured in a fire, she’s suddenly forced to care for a man who is more of a stranger than a parent. Once known as his muse, Sara long ago lost her father to his desire to live the celebrity life. Now TR’s abrasive and unpredictable presence in her home is reopening old wounds - and causing the rift in her already-strained marriage to deepen. As her young son begins bonding with the grandfather he never knew, Sara must decide if she can find it within herself to forgive the man who broke her heart all those years ago.

Well I can't remember if this was a free download or whether I used a credit. But either way this book is tedious. at the start of the book I thought it was going to be a page turner so to speak but it rapidly went down hill. how many times can someone nearly die and have so much ridiculous luck. if you are struggling to get to sleep, then this is the book for you

Very poor book. I listened hoping the story would improve. It dragged on and on! The narrator's voice when doing the female pi was awful. No redeeming area's to this book apart from getting me to sleep!

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.

I downloaded this book in haste and thought it would be slow and boring. it's quite the opposite. you do have to get over the whining voice of the narrator but then the book just flows and your wanting to find out what happens while wanting the book to last forever.
