Summary

Every Wednesday, like clockwork, the terror returns.

It seems like an ordinary Wednesday, until the phone rings. A mysterious caller with a chilling threat. Journalist Alice Henderson hangs up, ready to dismiss it as a hoax against the newspaper. But the next Wednesday, the stalker makes another move - and it becomes clear that this is all about Alice.

Someone wants her to suffer, but for what? Her articles have made her a popular local champion - could it be her past rather than her work that’s put her life in danger? Alice is determined not to give in to fear, but with the police investigation at a dead end, her boyfriend insists on hiring private investigator Matthew Hill.

With every passing Wednesday the warnings escalate, until it’s not only Alice but also her family in the stalker’s sights. As her tormentor closes in, can Alice uncover what she’s being punished for before the terrifying threats become an unthinkable reality?

It’s a smasher!

Another fabulous, twisty tale from Teresa Driscoll. Lots of suspense to keep you guessing until the end. Loved the different POV’s; each unique and authentic. Great narration too.

Creepy Psychological Thriller

This is a fabulously creepy psychological thriller from the excellent Ms Driscoll. The story is told from three POVs – Alice (past and present, Matthew the Private Investigator, and the mysterious ‘Him’. All the way through the book I was trying to figure out who ‘Him’ was, and there are many red herrings so I failed y!

The book is a standalone, though there are a few characters who have appeared before in Ms Driscoll’s books – Matthew the PI and his wife Sally, and DI Melanie Sanders.

The book kept me on the edge of my seat, and reading into the small hours, and has a satisfying ending. The narrators were both excellent.

Great Psychological Thriller

This book is about (very believable) threats and stalking that keep you on the edge of your seat right from the get-go.
There are multiple threads to the story:
► Alice the journalist receiving threats, but only on Wednesdays
► Alice's mum, terminally ill, in a nursing home
► Somebody called simply "Him", his Gran and pervy Brian next door
► Alex, Alice's paedophile ex-fiance, who was a piano teacher
► Claire who runs a stalking support charity
► Alice and colleague Jack having a one-off date
► Alice's campaign stories about Maplefield House
► Acid Attack on Alice
► Pervy bald man on a train stalking Alice
► Ian Ellis convinced he's being chased by little people

I listened with great interest waiting to discover how all these many threads would come together at the end. Most did come together, although one or two were left hanging, presumably deemed not relevant to the conclusion. The final resolution was a great surprise and I thought unlikely, but in spite of this it was still a great story to listen to overall. Not too challenging for the listener although there were a lot of characters. I have no hesitation in recommending it.

The male narrator's attempt at female voices made them all sound like effeminate drag queens. The female narrator was better, but all her characters had the same voice. Hence 3 stars for performance.
