Summary

You can't choose your family. Or can you?

Meet the Bensons. A pleasant enough couple. They keep themselves to themselves. They wash their car, mow their lawn and pass the time of day with their neighbours. And they have a beautiful little girl called Daisy.

There's just one problem. Daisy doesn't belong to the Bensons. They stole her. And now they've decided that Daisy needs a little brother or sister.

DS Nathan Cody is about to face his darkest and most terrifying case yet....

Jackson Makes it a Hat Trick!

David Jackson has done it again. Another excellent story for his lead Nathan Cody featuring great drama, strong characters and another highly impressive reading by Jonathan Keeble. The first thing to say though is that having so many characters in one accent is tough for any narrator. I think Keeble does a cracking job of differentiating so many in what is clearly not his native accent. Some, I feel sure, are going to struggle to like them though so maybe the audio sample is a good starting point. In all other aspects the narration is simply top class without any reservations.

Assuming you are okay with the narration the story itself is a clever one with what I thought was an excellent twist at the end which although it was signalled throughout I simply never saw coming. Cody's back story does not progress a great deal which the previous book had strongly suggested was coming but structurally it would have been difficult to fit this into this story which occupies a fairly brief period of time. Jackson is going to make us wait for that back story to develop it seems.

In short it's another excellent thriller in the series, and oh dear it's another one I need to keep track of. Too many damn good authors too little time!

great as ever

David Jackson has not disappointed. This 3rd book was brilliant, I had it read in the one day and I look forward until the 4th book. Jonathon Keeble did a fantastic job with the narration. I strongly recommend this book, so many twists and turns. A gripping read.

One of the best suspense books ever

Loved this book for the sense of foreboding and peril. Loved the characters of the girls and obviously root for Cody and Megan. All round great book read expertly by the best storyteller in the business Mr Keeble.

Highly recommended

Top marks !!

I listened to this book in the car. I found myself sitting waiting for the end of the chapter before I got out. I counted. I’ve listened to 62 audiobooks. This was one of the best ! Excellent twist at the end. I’m sorry it’s finished. Roll on the next book

Top thriller!

This book is high in my list of favourite thrillers. It is powerfully written and the author is skilful in creating his characters and weaving them into a terrifying story,of wickedness and madness. There are the weak and vulnerable,the courageous and selfless, and always that awful fear that there may be no happy ending.
I have listened avidly to 'Don't make a sound ', until nearing the conclusion, I rationed myself to a couple of chapters,the better to savour the stunning climax of the book!

Totally excellent!
I have downloaded 'Cry baby',by the same author.
David Jackson is a fantastic writer.

RIVETING

Can't wait till the next one. I laughed, cried and just could not put the book down. Jonathan Keeble can narrate like no other. All three of the Nathan Cody series are great. My hat is off to you David Jackson!!!

Better and better

These are fantastic books. It's a shame there's only 3 in the series. They keep getting better and better. I can't wait til the next one. Cody is a great character and I'm hoping we have plenty of future stories about him. No doubt one of my favorites in this category. Highly recommended
