Kidnapping with quite a few twists

I don't usually like police investigations, but this is a really good one. The writing is superb, I was hooked all the way the through, there really were no flat bits.

It's a story about the kidnapping of Millie, a 7 yo girl and is told mainly from from the perspective of her mother Jo, the story heroine. It's no ordinary kidnapping though, there are no ransom demands so what is going on? Jo doesn't know who she can trust, including her husband Ash.

I've loved Rachel Abbott's other books, but this was my first in the DCI Tom Douglas series. It didn't seem to matter that I hadn't listened to earlier books in the series. The story didn't focus much on Tom Douglas until the last half hour, after the main climax, then we seemed to get a soap opera style update on his family life, mainly for the benefit of his earlier followers I think!

Rachel Abbott is becoming one of my favourite authors.

Great reading by Lisa Coleman too.

Outstanding!

I have read every single one of Rachel’s books and enjoyed them all but I think this one is possibly her best yet. I would give it 7 stars if I could! Can’t wait for the next one!

Not your best

I think it’s time for the author to take stock, have some time out and really think about where they are going with this series and these characters.
In the early books, the storylines were strong, well constructed, with believable characters. The main characters were beginning to sound and feel interesting as we got to understand about their lives through each book.
Then suddenly (and who knows why), the number of books increased and the quality of each story began to disintegrate. This last book was the worst, weak storyline, weak main characters which was especially disappointing as I had high hopes for Tom and Becky and was generally a non starter.
I’m crushed to have to write such a poor review, but maybe, if enough fans of Rachel Abbott reflect similar thoughts, it will encourage the author to take stock and return to their true motivation for writing thrillers (which hopefully wasn’t ever financially driven)
Sorry!

Good listen

Excellent series. I love Becky and Tom Douglas although Tom didn’t seem to have a very large part in this story. Well drawn characters and very good narration.

Brilliant! Another winner by Rachel Abbott.

I’ve been anxiously waiting for “Right Behind You” with DCI Tom Douglas, a favorite of mine. Author Rachel Abbott has, as always, created another suspenseful thriller. Lisa Coleman’s rich and perfect tones are addicting. Twisty turns made this one hard to take a break and rates at the top of my vast Audible library. Surprises throughout. An ending I never saw coming. Kudos to both Abbott and Coleman, for another intriguing adventure. Highly recommended. I can’t stress it enough. Well worth a treasured credit. Epic I say, EPIC!

Jo is relatable from the start!

This was quite the lively story! I enjoy Tom and Becky so very much as characters. I have been reading or listening to Rachel Abbott for years now and I always enjoy her books. She packs in some action with a twisted and thrilling situation with personal lives and how these characters progress over time. The narrator Lisa Coleman has a pleasant voice. I’m not sure if she adds to the thrilling feel of the story or if the story is that thrilling, either way. I liked it!

Tense!!

I was on pins and needles, chewed my nails to nubs this started off tense and barely gave me a breather. I actually took breaks because i was so anxious in some parts.
Overall though it was an entertaining ride. Just be prepared to feel the protagonists anxiety and prepare to be led down one path after another. Exc domestic suspense!

Boring

This was a boring book and it seemed quite far
Fetched. The narrator was very irritating, she had a nasal thing going on and it made it hard to get into the book for that reason. For a while I thought it was getting better, but that didn’t last long. There were side stories going on and that made it confusing, and they were also boring and had nothing to do with the plot. I would have returned it, but couldn’t figure out how.

Very good story, I could hardly put it down. The narrator was great, the plot was full of twists and turns, and I can hardly wait for the next book!
