Summary

It's harder to search for someone when they're determined not to be found.

Joe, struggling to survive in a high-powered law firm, is faced with the challenge of finding his childhood friend, Jenna, who has been missing for four years. But has she disappeared through choice? Or is she under the powerful influence of her husband, the restless, troubled Chetwood?

For Joe, the search is a matter of duty, but also of conscience, for he introduced them to each other; he was enthralled by them both. Helped by his prickly girlfriend, Sarah, Joe manages to find the beautiful, faded Jenna - only to realise too late that he has set some terrible events in motion.

Critic reviews

"A subtle thriller....The emotional involvement of the main characters...adds tension to this quietly absorbing mystery with its shattering and wholly unexpected ending." ( Sunday Telegraph)
"A beautifully crafted and engrossing thriller. The plot is both sinuous and surprising, the characterisations true and secure." ( Daily Mail)

The story is OK, but not brilliant

What did you like most about A Death Divided?

The narrator - I could listen to anything by Jeremy Northam, in fact I bought this on the strength of him being the narrator. (If you haven't heard him reading 'Our Man in Havana', do yourself a favour and download it.)

How would you have changed the story to make it more enjoyable?

I liked the story at the beginning, but I did get a bit bored by the end. I thought the plot got a bit lost at times. It's enjoyable but not great.

What about Jeremy Northam’s performance did you like?

He is a brilliant narrator.
