    Story

    The performance,by Rula Lenska, made this average story. There are many extraordinary british mysteries out there, although this is not one of them. If you are looking for a great british mystery try Minnett Walters or Ruth Randel.

    Story

    Simon Vance's monotone made this book almost unbearable to listen to. I had read the book in the past and enjoyed it. If I had listened to it first I would with this narrater I would never read another Camilla Lackberg book again. Thank goodness I read it first. I would not recommend the audio. Get the book and read it.

    Story

    I had read Sarah's Key and looked forward to listening to Tatiana de Rosnay's next book, The Secret Kept.
    I was very disappointed. It was slow, drawn-out and not very exciting. Simon Vance I have enjoyed listening to in the past, but this book is french not english. It needed someone with a french accent. I would not recommend this to anyone.
