Summary

How perfect is too perfect?

Ross Ransome is at the top of his profession; one of the most successful, and certainly one of the richest, plastic surgeons in the business. Such a man would expect his wife to be perfect - and why not? After all, he has spent enough hours in surgery to get her that way. But when his wife falls ill she turns her back on conventional medicine, and her arid marriage, and seeks help from the world of alternative medicine and a charismatic therapist who promises not just medical salvation. For Ransome, this is the ultimate betrayal. It defies logic, and Ross Ransome is a profoundly logical man. Logically, he can see no reason why any man should have his wife when he can't. It's all completely rational....

Gripping

Great story. Listened in one sitting. A little slow to start but soon ramped up. Fealt all the emotions from the story.

One of Peter James Best So Far

Another excellent listen Peter James' Las three novels have been brilliant listens. Absolute Proof, Dead At First Sight and now, Faith all come highly recommended. Katie Scarfes' performance is superb, I look forward to hearing her narrate again.

Bland

I was very disappointed in this book not up to Peter James standard at all, I was beginning to think it was written by someone else . I found the story predictable and on the verge of being chic lit. Contrary to a lot of reviews I thought the narrator did a good job

Good bones but too much sloppy stuff

The basis of the story was quite promising and I enjoyed it to start with. I don't agree with some of the criticisms of the narrator as it's hard for a woman with a fairly high voice to do so many men's voices and she did a good job considering that. However there was too much' romance' for my taste much of which was quite cliched.

Faith by Peter James

Great story and characters but somewhat spoilt for me by the narrator’s unessersary shouting during the more dramatic moments.

Gripping thriller with excellent narration

I read the audible reviews which seemed to be quite negative but because it’s Peter James and due to the clip I heard of him talking I thoughtI’d try it anyway and boy I’m glad I did! I listen to a lot of audio books on here from the boring to the brilliant and I return a lot but this one is up there with the best of Peter James. I don’t agree with the negative review about narration either. The female narrator is excellent and I honestly can’t fault this experience. Up there with the best for me. Wow something about the plot is so gripping I’m getting really emotionally involved with it and that’s the mark of a great writer and plot for me. I’m on the edge of my seat as the plot thickens...wow.

Very disappointing!

This really isn’t up to his normal standards. It just drones on and on and the readers voice is extremely irritating, in fact I couldn’t listen to it anymore so I didn’t finish it.

Brilliant Narration.

Really impressed with the narrators ability to change her voice for each character. Really did sound like a different person.

As for the story brilliant as usual.

The narrator ruined this one for me

This book was semi interesting, but not the best. The narrators various voices were horrible, especially the childs whiny loud voice. It grated on my nerves. Can't reccomend this one.
