So much better than the brief description

Was reluctant to purchase due to the description, but really it was very complex and keeps you listening! My only complaint was too many descriptions of baby Noah and his nappy changes, not exactly necessary?!

Could have been a good story

Storyline was original, but ruined by awful accents from the male narrator. Would be a good book to read.

For any fans of suspense, thriller, drama...this is the perfect book for you. It is like a rollercoaster and never gets boring. Just a tip, you might want to be alone to concentrate for the last 2 hours....

Good storyline and good characters, but.... it is too drawn out. Could remove about 1.5hrs in the middle and the book would be so much more impactful. Sometimes just too many details. Interesting enough to make you want to purchase book 3; although I might wait awhile.

I enjoyed every 1 of the 17hrs of this book!

I was hesitant to buy this book at first, but so please I did, what a delight! A wide range of wonderful characters all woven together to make you want to carry on listening all day long. And the narration was superb. A definite recommendation!

Weak storyline

Could have been so much better; but what ruins it from the 1st chapter is the pathetic and unbelievable main character. So the story can not really improve as she is just a bystander throughout. Rest of it is not much better.

Not as good as the first book...

I really enjoyed the first book and was excited to listen to book 2. Listening to the first 6 chapters made me think I was still listening to book 1...it was so similar! But I persisted ...unfortunately the story really only gets interesting 3/4 into the book. The accent of the main character is really awful! I wont be listening to any more in the series.

Definitely recommended

I think I have found my new favourite author - I love the way the book is written and especially that the author doesn't state the obvious and doesn't repeat details/similar phrases. Also not the same type of thriller (child disappears etc) a new story and a new ending. Really well read by narrator as well.


uncertain about this one...

Really not sure why this book is so highly rated; for me it was really slow and only at about chapter 30 did the story start picking up. The Irish narrators voice doesn't change much for the various characters (and I had to listen on 1.25 speed). I wouldn’t describe it as a “thriller” – more a gentle suspense.

Engaging and lovely story

The first 3 chapters are a bit confusing and I wasn't sure I would continue. But so pleased I did as the story becomes so rich and the various characters are beautifully woven together.
