Summary

Brought to you by Penguin.

The Sunday Times best-selling author of The Nanny returns with a compulsive thriller that is a potent blend of atmosphere, tarnished memories and twisty secrets. 

Lucy Harper has a talent for invention....

She is an exceptionally successful writer whose obsessive readers hound her for every book. But the pressure is extreme. And it’s not just the pressure of finishing her next novel. Years ago when she was a child, Lucy’s little brother went missing, and he has never been found. Many people think Lucy was responsible for his disappearance. Lucy herself can’t bear to think about it. 

Writing a thriller a year is demanding, and Lucy depends on her husband, Dan, to take care of everything in her life. But Lucy finds herself in a real police drama when Dan goes missing. The evidence points to her. And it isn’t the first time someone’s vanished in Lucy’s orbit. 

Did she kill her husband? Would she remember if she did? 

Is she even capable of telling the truth?

Emma fryer is AMAZING!

The main reason I bought this book is because Emma Fryer was the narrator (she is fantastic in ‘ideal’ and phone shop). Emma has a very Smoove and calming voice and after ideal I always think of her as Tanya. The story of the book is pretty basic - Little boy goes missing years later the sister is still haunted by the missing boy but you don’t know exactly what happened until the end. The sister has become a very successful author but her character is like her other personality and sometimes takes over. The book has some beautiful descriptions what makes you able to picture the scene. Overall five stars! Performance definitely five stars (others might think differently), The story is four stars. Please get Emma Fryer to do narrate more audiobooks!!!

Wanted to know more

Narrator was quite monotone with no feeling. Enjoyed the story but wanted to know more after it finished. This is the first one by this author that I’ve had but will try more.

Not as good as The Nanny

I was looking forward to this book, but unfortunately was rather disappointed. The storyline was OK but the narrator ruined the book for me. She has a nice voice, but it was too slow and unemotional - worst of all, was the inspectors voice which I had to listen to on 1.5 speed. I would rather recommend The Nanny.
