But when Alice Fancourt walks into the nursery, her terrifying ordeal begins, for Alice insists the baby in the cot is a stranger she's never seen before.

My first encounter with a Sophie Hannah book - good listen but a little strange and lacking plot.

I listened to this mostly whilst driving in the car alone and other drivers probably thought I was crazy as I laughed out loud at traffic lights etc!



Easy listening and read by Alan Partridge himself!

Have read all the previous Rizzoli and Isles but this one was probably my least favourite. Its an extremely far fetched storyline with gaping holes in it's credibilty. Cant detail as would give plot away but it seems not very well planned or thought out. Maybe its time for Maura Isles to find a decent man and Jane Rizzoli to hang up her badge!

In the depths of winter, a killer stalks the city streets. His victims are two young women, both found with twenty-four inexplicable puncture wounds, both drowned in their own blood. The crime scenes offer no clues, the media is reaching fever pitch, and the police are running out of options. There is only one man who can help them, and he doesn’t want to be found.

Have read all the Harry Hole thrillers and have to say that I found this one disappointing - weaker plot than it's predecessors and sometimes difficult to follow as it seemed to jump from one area of the plot to another too frequently.

This was my second book by Jojo Moyes - quite different from the last one but equally entertaining and an interesting and well thought out storyline.



Have looked at the library and all her books seem quite different, different eras, countries, genres and fully intend to try more.
