Wow - Mo Hayder does it again! If you've not listened to any of Mo Hayder's books - start with Birdman - then get this. Not for the squeemish, but the characters and the story really hold you gripped in the tension.
The narrator does a wonderful, wonderful job.
This is gritty, modern british detective fiction of the highest calibre. Can't wait till Audible gets her next book.
This book is sooooo gripping. I loved Cabinet of Curiosities and because the previous reviewer mentioned Special Agent Pendergast was in this book too, I decided to download it. I wasn't disapointed - it was even better than Cabinet of Curiosities! I am now firmly in love with Agent Pendergast and just itching for more.
The atmospheric music was brilliant, as was the ending.
The narrator is especially good - able to create seperate voices for each character in an exceptionaly talented way.
I have downloaded lots of books from Audible and this one will go down as one of my all time favorites. A ripping yarn, scary, atmospheric, gripping and delicious.
After listening to my first Stephen King novel - Bag of Bones - and being completely bowled over by it, I couldn't wait to listen to this one.
What a complete waste of money!
The story is probably great, but Frank Muller's narration is so awful and irritating that I simply cannot listen anymore. I will be very careful to avoid this narrator in my future purchases on audible. This is a pity because he narrates quite a lot of titles that I would have liked to have listened to. But once bitten - twice shy!
I loved this book! A great psychological thriller. There are few books I can think of where the reader is invited to identify with the bad guy as well as with the good guy.It made me look at the nature of good and evil in a new and enlightening way.
The narrator who is also the author does a fantastic job. I only wish more authors would narrate their own books. My only gripe is that it was abridged. I much prefer unabridged books, and I didn't want this one to end.
This book drew me in and had me so hooked that I ended up listening to it in one complete session! Wonderfull!
