Summary

A heartbreaking psychological thriller that will keep you guessing right until the end. 

You lost your daughter. You will never forgive yourself. And now someone is determined to make you pay.... 

Seventeen years ago, something happened to Jess' daughter, Beth. The memory of it still makes her blood run cold. Jess has tried everything to make peace with that day and the part she played in what happened. It was only a brief moment of desire...but she'll pay for it with a lifetime of guilt. 

To distance herself from the mistakes of the past, Jess has moved away and started over with her family. But when terrifying things begin happening in her new home, seemingly connected to what happened to Beth, Jess knows that her past has finally caught up with her. Somebody feels Jess hasn't paid enough and is determined to make her suffer for the secrets she's kept all these years.

Obvious

It was interesting to start with but all became fairly obvious and sometimes far fetched.

a good listen, tearful at times

This is a story about grief and guilt, played well. No laughs. The first act is heart wrenching, but it settles down in the middle and devolops the characters well.

Narration is first class. truth, is I likely wouldn't have finished it without the great narrating.

Wouldn't recommend this to anyone who has lost a loved one recently... might be too much!

The Daughter

Once I had got past the beginning I loved listening to this book. The start is so upsetting I nearly stopped listening. I’m glad I carried on because the rest of the book was gripping with lots of suspense.

Listen to this book! Fantastic!

This is one of those books that you can't put down and won't soon forget. If you're trying to decide which book to use your credit on, choose this one. One of my best listens of the year (and I listen a lot)!

3.5

This story kept me interested and the twist was a surprise. Like most fans of psych thrillers, I love when the author surprises me with an ending I did not anticipate.

Ms Atkins has a pleasing voice for the main character and projects well so that there is no straining to hear. However, her voices for the other characters are not as good and at times irritating enough to distract from the story.

Overall, worth a credit.

Very disappointed

The lead female character leaves her husband who loves her more than anything because of her former boyfriends wife. So instead of coming clean herself she decides to leave him, literally with no word to him. People that do stupid crap like this make me sick. So telling her husband the truth is worse than leaving him. The idiots always say “I was trying to protect him”. So the action she chose couldn’t possible hurt him. Disgusting & refuse to listen for another moment.
