Penguin presents the audio download edition of Can You Keep a Secret? by Karen Perry, read by Grainne Gillis.
It's been 20 years since Lindsey has seen her best friend Rachel. Twenty years since she has set foot in Thornbury Hall - the now crumbling home of the Bagenal family - where they spent so much time as teenagers. Since Patrick Bagenal's 18th birthday party, the night everything changed.
It's time for a reunion. Patrick has decided on one last hurrah before closing the doors of his family home for good. All of the old crowd, back together for a weekend. For the secrets to come out.
It's not long before secrets begin to float to the surface. Everything that Lindsey shared with her best friend at 16 and everything that she didn't. But some secrets should never be told. They need to be taken to the grave. While others require revenge at any cost.

ATTEMPTED MURDER OF GOOD THRILLER BY iNSUFFERABLE NARRATER
So many wonderful actors like Caroline Lennon could have brought this book to life instead of trying to bludgeon it to death with grim, prim and so totally affected 1970's RTE continuity announcer style accent and intonation which tortured every sentence with mention of dawgs, fawwtherrs , saowftness and of course one of the main characters Paaaawtrick. Not to mention his surname which disturbingly sounded like Vaginal adding to the endless crimes against vowels continually perpetrated. However this was nothing compared to the stomach churning character voices which ranged from sounding much like Ross O'Carroll Kelly on a bad day for the men, to all the charm of nails on a blackboard for the women. It is a testament to the book that I managed to finish this ingeniously plotted book with the self conscious, grating heavy weather made of it by the narrator and how I wish I had read it old style rather than listened to it read in this strangled and strange affected accent. DIRE or as the narrator might say DOIRE!
