Summary

The brilliant new audiobook from Jenny Blackhurst, the number one ebook best-selling author of How I Lost You, which Clare Mackintosh called 'utterly gripping', and Before I Let You In.

If you love Louise Jensen's The Gift or SK Tremayne's The Ice Twins, you will love this.

When child psychologist Imogen Reid takes on the case of 11-year-old Ellie Atkinson, she refuses to listen to warnings that the girl is dangerous.

Ellie was the only survivor of a fire that killed her family. Imogen is convinced she's just a sad and angry child struggling to cope with her loss. But Ellie's foster parents and teachers are starting to fear her. When she gets upset, bad things seem to happen. And as Imogen gets closer to Ellie, she may be putting herself in danger....

Utterly Dreadful !

Was this book meant for teenagers?
I think I made a mistake buying this book thinking it was adult fiction. It was truly dreadful and I finally gave up when I could no longer listen to the dreadful dialogue between a bunch of eleven year olds that sounded as far fetched as I have ever had to listen to. Nothing about this book rang true, the very silly story, the awful main character who acted totally unprofessionally as a child psychologist and would have been immediately struck off, and the pre teens who acted and sounded like adult hardened criminals. I even felt sorry for Lisa Coleman having to narrate such drivel, I normally enjoy her work and the characterisation she brings to a story. I think even she gave up this time. What a waste of a few hours.

A really cracking story

Whilst I realised whodunnit midway in, the twist did catch me out! I never mind that, I really enjoyed it. Good story telling and great narration from Lisa Coleman as always. Highly recommended.

Not a bad ending

Not for me. Lead character was not likeable, or believable. Got bored with her very quickly. Good, but somewhat obvious, twist at the end.
