Summary

"An outstanding debut - ingenious, fast-paced and unpredictable." (Harlan Coben)

"Geneva is one of the best thrillers I've ever read. And I've read quite a few." (A J Finn)

How far would you go for someone you love?

Nobel Prize-winning scientist Sarah Collier has taken a step back from work to spend more time with her family. Movie nights with her husband Daniel and their daughter Maddie are a welcome respite from the scrutiny of the world’s press. As much as it hurts, it’s good to be able to see her father more too. He’s suffering from Alzheimer’s and needs special care.

Sarah has started to show tell-tale signs of the disease too. She’s been experiencing blackouts and memory loss. It’s early days but she must face the possibility that she won’t be there to see her daughter grow up. Daniel, a neuroscientist himself, is doing his best to be supportive but she already knows that she will have to be the strong one. For all of them.

So when Sarah is invited to be the guest of honour at a prestigious biotech conference in Geneva she declines, wanting to stay out of the public eye – that is until Daniel shows her the kind of work that the enigmatic Mauritz Schiller has been developing.

Flown first class to the spectacular alpine city and housed in a luxury hotel, Sarah and Daniel are thrust back into the spotlight. As they try to shut out the noise of the public media storm, in private Sarah is struggling with her escalating symptoms. And the true extent of what Schiller has achieved is a revelation. This is technology that could change medicine forever. More than that, it could save Sarah’s life.

But technology so valuable attracts all kinds of interest. Wealthy investors are circling, controversial blogger Terri Landau is all over the story, and someone close to Schiller seems bent on taking advantage of the situation for themselves. Sarah feels threatened and does not know who to trust – including herself. Far from being her lifeline Schiller's technology may be her undoing.

As events spiral out of control Sarah and Daniel are faced with the ultimate question: how far would you go for someone you love?

An unmissable debut thriller written and narrated by Richard Armitage, co-narrated by Nicola Walker and Jane Perry.

This book contains scenes pertaining to dementia that some listeners may find distressing.

Heartbreaking

Beautifully observed details and nuances throughout! Heartbreakingly sad in several ways, while still injecting glimpses of humour and humanity.
This book should be turned into a big budget movie!

Excellent

I've sometimes bought an audiobook from an author I don't know, just because Richard Armitage was the narrator, so to listen to Richard's own book, narrated by him and the wonderful Nicola Walker was a real treat. Plus, it's a great story with brilliant twists and turns. I'm certainly looking forward to his next book and highly recommend this one.

Just download it

What a book full of twists and turns, easy to listen to with the wonderful Nicola Walker!
The plot thickens from chapter to chapter and even finishes by rounding everything off.

Sheer brilliance.

Absolutely fantastic story and performance by Richard Armitage. He truly surpassed my expectations. Nicola Walker is also a very good narrator. Please write and record many more.

More twists than an Alpine pass

At the start I was happy to give it 4/5 - it was good. I thought I could see how it would develop. But the 2nd half roller-coasted along like a slalom race! I had a dilemma - listen face and get to the end or break it into chunks to savour and ponder the plot. Well I listened fast but, must be the sign of a good book because I want to go back and listen again immediately. This is no flash gimmick - an exciting thriller that will stay on the top spot for awhile. Deserves to be print published too! 🙌

What a treat!!

A great story that held my interest from beginning to end; I listened to the whole thing over two days. I worked out the plot early on but that didn’t detract in any way from my interest. It’s so well written and so well told. Narrators we’re first class. Thank you Richard Armitage . . can’t wait for your next one.
