Summary

A terrifying lie. A horrifying truth.

The chilling new psychological thriller by S. K. Tremayne, author of the Sunday Times number one best seller The Ice Twins.

Sometimes you can’t even trust yourself.... 

It was just a patch of ice. Just a bit of bad luck. But it was nearly enough to kill Kath Redway, spinning her car into Burrator Reservoir in the beautiful Dartmoor National Park.

Miraculously, Kath escapes her accident with a few bruises and amnesia. She is shocked but delighted to be back in her remote moorland farmhouse with her handsome husband, Adam, and her shy, gifted daughter, Lyla. She’s alive!

But her family is not so delighted. Her husband is cold, even angry. Her daydreaming daughter talks ever more strangely, about a 'man on the moor'. Then, as chilling fragments of memory return, Kath realises her 'accident' was nothing of the kind. And now her life collapses into a new world of darkness, menace and terror.

Blinding listen

Without doubt right up there in my top five books and I get through a lot of books, found this very hard to put down..
I will be surprised if just before I died does not sweep all before it.
Top notch thriller.

Really enjoyed it

From the beginning I couldn’t put it down. Enjoyed the story and the twists. Narrative was spot on.

Very dull

Sadly I haven’t enjoyed this at all. The story is slow and the hook just isn’t there. Very unusually for me as an avid reader of both print and audio books, I have given up on this book.

Nice surprise

The author writes about Dartmoor vividly. A good sense of place. The story kept. Me guessing. Good characters. Well done

Those accents!

The story is actually quite gripping, though the bizarre and completely unpredictable final twist does dampen the story a little bit but my lord, the accents of the narrator are so annoying!

The westcounty drawl of the majority of the cast is so jarring and, well, bad, that it really detracts from the tale and it became a real chore to get through towards the end.

Dissapointing

Following The Ice Twins I was so excited when I saw this new book had been released, unfortunately I found it slow, boring and in all honesty couldn't wait for it to end. Disappointed.

Stunning , cleverly crafted and written novel

The description and observations pertaining to Aspergers had my wife and I both applauding and in tears as we related to this condition in our wonderful gifted son. The beautifully written and magnificent crafting of the intertwined plots had us guessing and re-guessing as we continually fell foul to Treymayne’s deliberately false leads. Kerry Watton’s reading, no , acting heightened the tension producing a thrilling climax to this well thought out work.
My wife and I listened as we drove down from the north of France to the South of France. The kilometres passed quickly, much faster than ever before.
Bravo to both of you , genuine entertainment , we recommend highly!
