    "The Secret Place", a board where the girls at St Kilda's School can pin up their secrets anonymously, is normally a mishmash of gossip and covert cruelty, but today someone has used it to reignite the stalled investigation into the murder of handsome, popular Chris Harper. Stephen joins forces with the abrasive Detective Antoinette Conway to find out who and why.

    Would you try another book from Tana French and/or Stephen Hogan and Lara Hutchinson ?

    I have 3 other Tana French books and loved them all, so I will probably try another Tana French book


    What do you think your next listen will be?

    Don't know


    How could the performance have been better?

    The book is way too long, too much irrelevant, superfluous
    filler, and the supposed dialogue between the teenage girls is excruciating both in content and narration.


    What character would you cut from The Secret Place?

    Half of the school pupils

    Everything starts somewhere. For elite military cop Jack Reacher, that somewhere was Carter Crossing, Mississippi, way back in 1997. A young woman is dead, and solid evidence points to a soldier at a nearby military base. But that soldier has powerful friends in Washington. Reacher is ordered undercover - to find out everything he can, to control the local police, and then to vanish. Reacher is a good soldier. But when he gets to Carter Crossing, he finds layers no one saw coming, and the investigation spins out of control. Local sheriff Elizabeth Deveraux has a thirst for justice - and an appetite for secrets.

    Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?

    yes, the plot line is strong and fast moving, the narration is excellent


    What was your reaction to the ending? (No spoilers please!)

    Tight ending, its not a cliffhanger, but its not supposed to be, read this book before the rest of the series, its an excellent prequel


    What about Dick Hill’s performance did you like?

    His choice of accent and intonations fit the characters very well, his female voices, for a person with a deep voice, are remarkably good


    If you were to make a film of this book, what would be the tag line be?

    In the beginning, there was Reacher.

    When a woman is kidnapped off a Chicago street in broad daylight, Jack Reacher's in the wrong place at the wrong time. He's kidnapped with her. Chained together and racing across America toward an unknown destination, they're at the mercy of a group of men demanding an impossible ransom. Because Reacher's female companion is worth more than he imagines. Now he has to save them both - from the inside out - or die trying....

    What could have made this a 4 or 5-star listening experience for you?

    1. Shorter, tighter plot. 2. Good narrator


    What was the most interesting aspect of this story? The least interesting?

    Overall premise ok, but it is way too long for the plotline so there are many passages that are just filler, with no value to the plot.


    How did the narrator detract from the book?

    Accents were terrible, female voices ridiculous and overall delivery very flat


    You didn’t love this book... but did it have any redeeming qualities?

    first few hours are OK, by the end I couldn't wait for it to be over.
