Publisher's Summary

There are some friends you'll never forget...no matter how hard you try.

Before: Edie is the friend that Heather has always craved. But one night it goes terrifyingly wrong. And what started as an innocent friendship ends in two lives being destroyed.

After: Sixteen years later Edie is still rebuilding her life. But Heather isn't ready to let her forget so easily. It's no coincidence that she shows up when Edie needs her most.

Now: Edie or Heather? Heather or Edie? Someone has to pay for what happened, but who will it be?

    Story
    "Author keeps readers fooled right up to the end"
    Would you consider the audio edition of Watching Edie to be better than the print version?

    Yes, the book is beautifully read by the two performers who bring the characters to life in a very real way..


    Who was your favorite character and why?

    The two main characters are beautifully balanced. Their existence depends on one another - the book tells the story of their relationship.


    Which scene did you most enjoy?

    The return by Edie to the scene of her adolescent experience that is to frame the remainder of her life.


    Was there a moment in the book that particularly moved you?

    There is a point in the book where Edie learns the value of sacrifice.


    Any additional comments?

    Gritty Northern realism - great stuff!

    Any additional comments?

    Very good book but extremely dark story, I don't think I would want to listening to it again, it made me feel uneasy and depressed when it finished. Great narration.

    "Wow!"

    What a great story. Kept me guessing until the very end. I loved the increasing tension as the story gathered pace. The narration was fantastic from both narrators, and gave great depth to the characters. Cant recommend enough.

    "Heart wrenching"

    One of the saddest books I've ever read! Totally heart wrenching. Brilliantly narrated by Chloe Massey & Kathryn Griffiths.

    Story
    "Not for me ..."

    When a book is quoted as being 'the best thriller you'll read this year', it's best to take that with a pinch of salt. It's ok, it's a bit of a struggle as the narrators aren't the best. Having read (listened to) so many thrillers it was pretty easy to gauge where it was going and whilst you wouldn't guess exactly, you won't be far from away. It was all just ok and yes a little bit depressing as another reviewer has said.

    "Excellent! "

    One of the best books I've listened to in the past 12 months. Had me gripped from outset & throughout. Did not foresee the ending either.
    Narrators were both great too.
    Can't fault it!

    Story
    "The strap line finally fits!"

    So often, when you you read the strap line of a psychological thriller, you end up sorely disappointed, when the "twist you won't see coming" is zooming towards you, lights and sirens blazing, from chapter 2. This book, however, is NOT one of those. Unsettling seems far too mild. You think you've got a handle on the relationship between Edie and Heather and then, well, no spoilers here, but I was, indeed, very unsettled. This is a corker of a thriller, excellently narrated by Chloe Massey and Kathryn Griffiths, who do a fabulous job with Ms Way's words. (You could say they have a "Way with Words" *groan*). A definite 5 stars from me.

    "A bit pants really."

    'The most unsettling psychological thriller you will read in 2017 ?? I don't know where that hype came from... possibly one of the most boring wannabe psychological thrillers l've ever read. Instantly forgettable
