We all know someone like Becca. She has the job everyone wants, a designer wardrobe, a hot-shot lawyer boyfriend, holidays to exotic locations. And she flaunts her perfect life all over social media. It drove her colleague Lizzie mad, but she couldn't stop looking. They were never really friends - and yet Lizzie knew everything about her. Or did she? When chance and a terrible mistake pull Lizzie back into Becca's orbit years after they lost touch, she'll realise that you can't always believe what you see online...and that finding out the truth might be the worst thing you can do.

Best-selling author Anita Waller is back with a twisting, fast-paced listen, perfect for fans of domestic noir. When a gang of six children playing in their den in the woods spot a man burying drugs nearby, it marks the beginning of the end of their childhoods. Unsure what to do, the children dig up the drugs and take them away. But when the dealer, whom they watched bury the stash, shows up dead, the youngsters are thrown into turmoil.

One word and everything could be ruined: their lives, their careers, their relationships. It's up to Georgia to call a crisis dinner. She knows there's nothing that can't be resolved by three courses in her immaculate kitchen. But the evening does not go as planned. Three women walk in to the dinner, but only two will leave.

Polly, 28, lives in London with her 'perfect-on-paper' boyfriend. She works a dead-end job on a free London paper.... Life as she knows it is dull. But her banal existence is turned upside down late one drunken night on her way home, after a chance encounter with a man on a packed tube train. The chemistry between them is electric, and on impulse they kiss, giving in to their carnal desires. But it's over in an instant, and Polly is left shell-shocked as he walks away without even telling her his name.

Well......definitely not a dark, gripping, unsettling story as described!! Was waiting and waiting all the way through for it to get started and the 'gripping' storyline to begin, sadly it never happened. I guessed who Liam's dad was from the start, so that wasn't even a 'shocker' either!! Bit of a boring story really, that I only kept listening to in the hope that something was going to happen. Brilliant Narration though, really well read.

Christopher would never hurt anyone. Not intentionally. Even after everything that’s happened, I still believe that... Christopher Harris is a lonely boy. A boy who has never fit into his family. Who has always felt something was missing from his life. Until one day, when he discovers a suitcase in his family’s attic, and a secret about his mother that changes everything.... Perfect for fans of The Girl on the Train, The Sister, and Apple Tree Yard.

Saw all the reviews about how this was the best book ever and how gripping and what a page turner it was! I have to disagree! nothing really happened until chapter 27 (33 chapters in book) even then it wasn't gripping or thrilling! I kept listening In the hope that it was going to get better and that something great would happen but it didn't! Thoughout the book the Yorkshire Ripper kept being talked about and referred to and his murders documented but this had no relevance to the story! unless I missed something there! disappointed to say the least
