Summary

Sometimes, there's a thin line between love and hate. Or at least that's one theory for DI Zoe Dolan, tracking the Creeper - a stalker who's been breaking into women's homes and attacking them. But the Creeper's violence is escalating and there's no pattern, no clue as to how he's getting in, and no clue as to who's next. Until Jane Webster gets a call to the helpline where she volunteers.

It's meant to be a confidential service and Jane is torn - it could be a hoaxer, but the soft voice at the end of the line has the ring of truth about it. He says he loves these women - but it's a love that ends in blood. When Jane tells the police, it should be the lead that Zoe needs - but it only pulls her further into a case that is already taking her dangerously close to the past she's never fully escaped.

For Jane, Zoe, and all the other young women of the city, suddenly nowhere is safe. Particularly their own bedroom at the dead of night...

Forgettable

Any additional comments?

If a book stays with you after it is finished, if you wish it hadn't ended, if there was just one more hour left, then you know its a good audio. This didn't happen with this book, an OK listen.

enjoyable story

liked the story as a police procedural but hated the narration. struggled to keep going but finished it in spite of the somehow stilted and broken up reading.

The Nightmare Place

What disappointed you about The Nightmare Place?

The Nightmare Place is a nightmare to listen to. Very disjointed and I have up after 20 minutes.

Has The Nightmare Place put you off other books in this genre?

No, but will not get any from this author again.

How did the narrator detract from the book?

I think the narrator was fine - it was the story that was lacking.

You didn’t love this book--but did it have any redeeming qualities?

Nope

Any additional comments?

Rubbish
