Audra has finally left her abusive husband. She's taken the family car, and her young children, Sean and Louise, are buckled up in the back. This is their chance for a fresh start. She keeps to the country roads to avoid attention and finds herself on an empty road in the Arizona desert. Looking for a safe place to stay for the night, she spots something in her rearview mirror. A police car is following her, and the lights are flickering. Blue and red. As Audra pulls over she is intensely aware of how isolated they are.

Characters had well defined voices. A very exciting experience. Brilliant performance. For me, one of Audible's best productions.

It was meant to be a harmless stag-night prank. A few hours later Michael Harrison has disappeared, and his friends are dead. With only three days to the wedding, Detective Superintendent Roy Grace - a man haunted by the shadow of his own missing wife - is contacted by Michael's beautiful, distraught fiancée, Ashley Harper. Grace discovers that the one man who ought to know Michael Harrison's whereabouts is saying nothing.

Perfection. Touches the heart. Alan Bennett has deep understanding of suffering. This, tinged with humour is thought provoking and illuminating.
