Publisher's Summary

Young and athletic, London cycle courier Astrid Bell is bad luck - for other people. First Astrid's neighbour Peggy Farrell accidentally knocks her off her bike - and not long after is found bludgeoned to death in an alley.

Then, a few days later, Astrid is asked to pick up a package from a wealthy woman called Ingrid de Soto, only to find the client murdered in the hall of her luxurious home.

For the police, it's more than coincidence. For Astrid and her six housemates, it's the beginning of a nightmare: suspicious glances, bitter accusations, fallings out, and a growing fear that the worst is yet to come. Because it's true that bad luck comes in threes.... Who will be the next to die?

    "Enjoyable murder mystery but..."

    I enjoyed this Nicci French book and I liked that the story was told twice but from two different view points. This is cleverly done as it could have been repetitive but the writers have made sure that the additional details and different attitude of the second narrator keep it interesting.

    Unfortunately I did have problems with the playback of the audiobook. Every 5 minutes or so, the sound would cut out for 3-4 seconds but I don't know whether this would happen to everyone or if anyone else will experience this. It could have just been my download.

    "Good book"

    Thoroughly enjoyed this version of Until It's Over, it had all the twists and turns expected from these two writers and was also very well read by the two readers.

    "Until it's over"

    Awful! I have always enjoyed Nicci French's books but have not heard an audiobook before - but this was dreadful. The narrator in the second part (the man) was dreadful, he sounded like he came from a very poor amateur dramatics group. The story also didn't ring true in the sense that the murders were so far fetched, it was hard to be convinced. It didn't help that the actual recording was very poor, it was definately the weakest storyline I've heard and the poor narration didn't help.

    "Monologue of nothing"

    After a promising first half of the book the second half of this book was terrible. It was a narrative of a serial killer going over information you already knew. I tried to keep listening to see it would improve but the monolugue just continued.
