Summary

A haunting, emotional and unnerving thriller laced with psychological suspense.  

In the dead of night, Kate receives a phone call. Police have recovered her sister Anya's clothes and personal belongings at the poolside of a remote hideaway in Mexico - a place she had no idea Anya would be. Anya was last seen getting into a vehicle with a local diving instructor, but now he's missing, too.  

Their relationship has been complicated ever since a devastating tragedy blew their family apart, but Kate cannot believe Anya would willingly travel somewhere so isolated with a man she barely knows...would she? In a race against time, Kate must fight to find her little sister before it's too late.

Yawn 😫

I’ve listened to most of the Lucy Dawson books and enjoyed them but this one was terrible. It was so boring the characters were dull and the story was awful. Use your credit on something else.

Intriguing, from different perspectives

A well written story, which could very easily be based on a true story. Told from different people's perspectives, making you feel more involved.

Very good book. Thoroughly recommended.

There are two concurrent threads to this book:

There's Anya trapped in a dark, watery cave in somewhere Mexico wondering whether she will ever see daylight again. Then there's the story of Anya's home life. She is infact "middle sister". There's also elder sister Kate and youngest sister Emily.

There's not a great deal to say about somebody sitting in a cave for several days hoping to to rescued, although that does provide a lot of the tension. Mostly this book is about family life back home, mum and dad, grandparents, tragedy, boyfriends, marriage breakups, ambitions, guilt, love and romance. It's a bit of a weepy in places.

We also wait with baited breath to hear the story about what lead Anya to get into that situation in the first place.

Time passed very quickly while I was listening to this, so that's a sign of a good book. I was 100% engaged in the story.

Great narration by Emma Gregory, particularly the male voices. Easy to suspend disbelief and think you are actually listening to a male voice.

not my favourite book by Lucy Dawson

most of Lucy Dawson books follow a similar path of a woman sensing something is wrong and not being believed however this book lead me to cringe at the two hysterical women getting in the way of other people doing their jobs.

Awful

I've listened to several of Lucy Dawson's books and enjoyed every one but this one was tedious, relentlessly miserable and irritating. The characters were two dimensional and unsympathetic. Both the sisters were annoying. The other characters weren't fleshed out and consequently were uninteresting. Don't waste your money on this one.

Boring

I struggled to get to the end of the book. It just dragged on and on.

Choose another book

This book really dragged on with way too much time spent especially on her thoughts while in the cave.
The ending where she did not report what guide did was so ridiculous and disappointing.

Just Ok

I did get to the end but it was quite a dreary book and although not too many characters I found it a bit convaluted ... regardless, I did finish it
