Summary

A dark, addictive thriller, ingeniously plotted with a twist that will make you gasp.

A man is dead. A woman is missing. And the police have already found their prime suspect....

Owen Hall drives into a petrol station to let his passenger use the facilities. She never comes back - and what's more, it seems she never even made it inside. When Owen raises a fuss, the police are called - and soon identify Owen himself as a possible culprit, not least because they already have him in the frame for another more sinister crime. Owen's always been a little different, and before long others in the community are baying for his blood. But this is a case where nothing is as it seems - least of all Owen Hall....

Hooked from the moment it started

I started listening to this two days ago and before I knew it I had finished it. It's an easy listen and puts the characters at the heart of the story, examining each twist and turn from the perspective of everyone involved and manages to build tension without relying on played out tropes or being anticlimactic.

Definitely recommend this to anyone interested in checking it out.

LIE IN WAIT..

Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?

I honestly don't know if I would. The narrator was awesome, just great, however, the storyline was choppy, the characters were hard to keep up with. Except OWEN! The author did one heck of a job getting into his mind. 🚺 😵

Did the plot keep you on the edge of your seat? How?

Unfortunately not, I found myself thinking about other things constantly while listening to this book. This is through no fault of the narrator, he did a wonderful job with the main character, and that, my friend wasn't easy! 😵

Have you listened to any of Joe Jameson’s other performances before? How does this one compare?

No, but I will after this book.

If you were to make a film of this book, what would the tag line be?

OWEN, I AM? OWEN??? WILLIE??? 😵 😬 😵 😠

Any additional comments?

HAS THE POTENTIAL FOR BEING A FIVE STAR (in my opinion.) JUST NEEDS CLARIFICATION OF CHARACTERS, FEWER CHAPTERS, AND LESS CHOPPY. 😵 😵 😵 😵 😱
