    "hard going"

    very well narrated, compelling, but unremittingly miserable. Avoid if you are given to bouts of depression!!!

    Story
    "Is better in x1.5 speed"

    I nearly gave up on the book as I found the narration very melodramatic and needlessly slow with too many dramatic pauses. It actually ruined the main character for me.

    But then I decided to to play with the speed of the book reading (wanting to power through it faster) and found that playing it x1.5 cut out most of the melodrama and you got to enjoy the story.

    "Returned with 8 hrs to go"

    Sorry. I tried to persist but gave in. The story seemed fine but I couldn't put up with the narration. I found it very irritating and decided life was too short.

    Story
    "A very good and gripping story"

    My initial attraction to this book was because of its setting (I have intimate knowledge of Herne Bay) and I was very curious to find out how well a thriller would work in what I think of as a pleasant but fairly boring seaside town. I have to say I was very impressed by the way the author captured the atmosphere of the place and gave it a very believable sinister edge. OK - some liberties were taken with some of the minor facts about the geography but there was perfect logic in setting this story in a location like Herne Bay where nobody expects really dreadful things to happen. The underlying themes of war, PTSD, child abuse and false memories were intelligently explored and I was genuinely gripped throughout the tale. The structure of the story (including an interrogation of the main character by a psychologist) kept me intrigued and this was one of the few books of this type where I felt there was a plausible plot.
    The narrators were very good and added character to the voices of the two female protagonists. My only quibble (and not enough for this to lose a star) is that the reading was quite slow and this was remedied by me changing the setting to 1.25. I recommend this highly and will look out for more books by this author.

    Story
    "Once she started snarling at Jesus, I gave up. "

    This book is meant to be fantastic, but oh dear me. The audio performance is a strange one. And all this "lets hate Jesus" malarkey. Nope. Gave up. Too clichéd Too depressing.

    "Great performance average story!"

    The overall story is ok, but it’s like it’s never ending, first half is slow then second half picks up but by then you just want it to end as it just drags.

    Story
    "Fair story spoilt by over melodramatic reader. "

    I chose this to listen to as I know herne bay but it was dissappointIng that there was no strong sense of place, conveyed. In real life its a windy seaside town with lots of history and diversity and scenery and in the book is was just largely just run down houses and a police station. And the way the narrator kept intoning the words herne bay in a deep voice like a death knell was hilarious ! The story was slow starting, and neither of the sisters are particularly nice. Paul was clearly too good to be true so no surprises there, but there was a nice twist around the Sub plot of the boy in the shed that comes to the fore at the climax. It is a page turner, i listened in one day doing errands and chores, so probably just about worth a credit, but will be consciously avoiding anything narrated by Imogen church again. Her men's voices all sound the same, and her heavy intonation and odd hesitations and emphasis on wrong words is offputting.

    Story
    "First 3/4 great end a bit weak and predictable "

    An intreguing story to start - told by a war journalist - story evolves on many levels and kept me interested trying to work out what was real and what was not - however the last part disappointed as once the “ twist” happened it became quite predictable and fell into same pattern as other books of this genre

    Overall enjoyed - but don’t think I will try this author again
