Summary

Sam Ross is a psychotherapist - she spends her days helping people, but she can barely help herself. She’s still grieving over the recent death of her sister, her mother Barbara offers little support and she’s professionally challenged. 

One of her clients is Keith, a man whose life story changes with every session. And Keith has a secret - one that will rock Sam’s world to the core and place her in the most terrible danger.

Intrigue and mystery

Alex Kingston and warren brown don’t disappoint, great story along with plot twists that flip the narrative completely.

Definitely a drama worthy off a tv adaptation

Excellent

One of the best performances I have heard for a long time.
Big finish are very sci-fi orientated and I although I love sci-fi I have disliked the narrator approach to linking scenes. The BBC never use this method so for me big finish has been irritating.
However this story never uses the narrator method and is very BBC sound effects polished. If this is the future of big finish I will be buying a lot more of their stories.
Alex Kingston, voice acting, wow. She is entirely believable, vulnerable, stupid and idiotic, a real person wow
The best acted story I have heard for years.

Super narration to decent thriller

Listened whilst working in the garden and the time flew. Good story, wonderfully narrated by Alex Kingston as the lead character and kept my interest throughout. I just love listening to a cast reading as it ican be even better than watching. More of the same please.

A very mixed bag.

The plot had great potential but authors didn't make the most of it. 1/4 was good & pulls you in but 2/3 & 3/4 just drag, lost interest but wanted to see how it ended. The 4/4 was very well written & performed.

Rollercoaster Ride great pay off. Oddly I related.

Blimey. You can tell a different writer did different chapters. It's not what you think. it constantly Has you thinking constantly!!!. Can cause trust issues...like seriously..... REALLY good suspense some can relate I know I did. It's long maybe for some. But I love Alex Kingston (Sam) so I'm not complaining. Cant say much more with out SPOILERS Sweetie our time is up........ typical therapist.

p.s you want more Alex I highly recommend The rubys curse it's brilliant. It's from doctor who universe but even as novel alone in it's own right brilliant.

Another play rather than a book

I seem to have got myself onto a recommendation list for these type of books and I'm going to get myself off it! This is a radio play format. No narration and lots of incidental music sometimes for many many seconds between scenes.
The acting is great but I was expecting a narrated book. My error again but as its the second one in a row, it's an expensive one!

Great story

Great performance and storyline that kept you guessing thriughout. Though the long periods of music/silence between chapters was a little offputting.

I tried to like it

I really wanted to like this book. I love Alex Kingstone's voice acting. It's like watching her on TV. She's excellent and really makes you "see" the story in your head. However, the story itself was a mess. Her character kept doing dumb things for such a smart woman, such as blabbing details of her patient's diagnosis to her best friend when she shouldn't and putting him in danger as a result, or refusing protection from a patient who is clearly dangerous. Or NOT telling another friend she has taken refuge with details he should know to protect himself. The plot went all over the place until I was so lost, I finally gave up listening. I did not finish. Maybe it got better towards the end, but I just couldn't make myself keep listening. I'll try other stories starring Kingston, but this one was a miss for me.

Great listen!

Loved the story. Only thing I wish it didn’t have was so much music transition, but my first Big Finish Audiobook so not sure if that is common or not.

Não estou sabendo lidar!

This was magnificent!
All of it, but the ending it was woow! Still on my bed not knowing how to live after this.😮
When I got it I expected to enjoy it. But I didn't expect to enjoy as much as I did.
The story left me trying to discover what was going on, who deserved to be trusted or not, and when I stopped it to do other things, all I could do was think what was going to happen next.
Alex Kingston is superb and you can feel everything just in her voice. But, seriously, all the performances was amazing and impressive.
And the ending! Woow, that ending! I just want to keep listening it again and again.
I really hope Big Finish do more of these originals!
