Summary

You never know where danger may come from....

6.45 a.m. A sweltering London rush hour. And in the last 27 minutes, seven people have been murdered.

In a series of coordinated attacks, seven men and women across London have been targeted. For journalist Famie Madden, the horror unfolds as she arrives for the morning shift.

The victims have one thing in common: they make up the investigations team at the news agency where Famie works. The question everyone’s asking: what were they working on that could prompt such brutal devastation?

As Famie starts to receive mysterious messages, she must find out whether she is being warned of the next attack or being told that she will be the next victim....

Lost my way after 3 hours

Narrator was really giving me a hard time to continue with this book and she didn’t give me anything to keep me going. Story was good at start but stopped by chapter 34

Exceptional Storytelling - Unrelenting Pace

Zoe Telford wonderful choice for narrator. Note perfect. Suspenseful, shocking, well-researched cracking plot. Highly recommended.

good book, dull narration

entertaining book ruined by a terrible monotone narration that made it very difficult for the mind not to wander.

Please Simon, try another narrator.

I know that different people react differently to different narrators, but this one jus grated on my nerves from the beginning. It was as if I was continuously being whispered to by a manic depressive! This is supposed to be a gripping, tense novel.

I have listened to hundreds of audio books over the years and this is one of the few I could not finish. I gave it a good go. The story isn't really my cup of tea (very derivative, I'm sure Kermode must have said a thousand times "show, don't tell").

As for the narrator, have a listen to the finest narrator ever, Steven Pacey. This is the complete polar opposite. Again, a personal opinion, but when you have to turn your car stereo up to maximum at times to hear the whispering, my god............................................

Gripping

The book is gripping but a little over long, so 4 stars. The narrator’s soft, rather flat delivery was irritating at times but the story was good enough to keep me listening.

A great read!

Started off well and kept my interest all the way through. I got a little bit lost in the middle but managed to get to grips with it. Thoroughly enjoyed it and the characters involved.

I found it hard to get into Internet first few chapters. Once hooked it really grips you.
