Publisher's Summary

Gone Astray is a tense psychological thriller from debut novelist Michelle Davies.

When Lesley Kinnock buys a lottery ticket on a whim, it changes her life more than she could have imagined....

Lesley and her husband, Mack, are the sudden winners of a £15 million EuroMillions jackpot. They move with their 15-year-old daughter, Rosie, to an exclusive gated estate in Buckinghamshire, leaving behind their ordinary lives - and friends - as they are catapulted into wealth beyond their wildest dreams.

But it soon turns into their darkest nightmare when, one beautiful spring afternoon, Lesley returns to their house to find it empty: their daughter, Rosie, is gone.

DC Maggie Neville is assigned to be Family Liaison Officer to Lesley and Mack, supporting them while quietly trying to investigate the family. And she has a crisis threatening her own life - a secret from the past that could shatter everything she's worked so hard to build.

As Lesley and Maggie desperately try to find Rosie, their fates hurtle together on a collision course that threatens to end in tragedy....

    "A tense, spine chilling story "

    Tense, spine chilling and full of suspense. I just wanted to keep listening to find out what happened next. Wonderfully narrated. Highly recommended

    Story
    "A lot of crying"

    This audio book did not really work for me. Had to constantly remind myself that a young girl was missing to help suppress a lot of irritation caused by the dialogue. All the characters seemed unlikeable but not in an entertaining way. As mentioned in the title plenty crying by just about everybody. What an awful sister Maggie has! I had hoped for some likable traits to emerge but no.

    "Really a waste of my time!"

    Narration was fine with the characters nicely presented BUT the quality of writing is very, very low. The end was totally ridiculous and even the narration could not paper over the lack of good storytelling.

    I really enjoyed this book as it is a change from the usual crime stories, written from the point of view of the FLO

    "Good story, a few glitches"

    Enjoyable story with likeable characters.
    Good plot and quite pacy.
    I did enjoy it, but there were a few points that I wish the editor had fixed.

    I chose this book because I mistakenly thought it was the first in the series. I realised that it wasn't, which didn't matter, except that the author tells you exactly what happened and 'who did it' in the first book, for no reason. What a spoiler!
    Part of the plot was left unresolved at the end.

    I think the author must be sponsored by Blackberry because she keeps specifically referring to them including a particular model at on point! It's a bit off putting.

    "Pleasant trot"

    I can't say I would rush to read another book by this author. I quite enjoyed the story, it just wasn't special

    "Excellent narration!"

    One of the best narrators I have heard to date! Distinguishable character voices with a superb range of believable regional accents. First class.
    Great storyline, well written.
