    When battlefield nurse Bess Crawford returns from France for a well-earned Christmas leave, she finds a bruised and shivering woman huddled in the doorway of her London residence. The woman has nowhere to turn, and propelled by a firm sense of duty, Bess takes her in.

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

    Indeed yes, I'd recommend it as a good read with a plot that surprises and at the same time has wonderful descriptions of landscapes and people.


    What did you like best about this story?

    The psychology of loss: loss of sister, loss of husband's love, loss of wife's trust, loss of parents, loss of life, loss of identity. The effects of war on the men who fought it and the women who loved them.


    What does Rosalyn Landor bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?

    She does all the voices very well.


    Was there a moment in the book that particularly moved you?

    I was struck and moved by the honesty of one of the characters who tells his story even though it brings shame upon him and the possibility of great loss.

    Tana French's debut, In the Woods, hit the New York Times best-seller list and drew rave reviews from the Times (London) and Booklist. Picking up six months later, this riveting sequel finds Detective Cassie Maddox still scarred by her last case. When her boyfriend calls her to a chilling murder scene, Cassie is forced to face her inner demons. A young woman has been found stabbed to death outside Dublin, and the victim looks just like Cassie.

    Excellent follow up to In the Woods but even better: great depth of character, fabulous descriptive detail, and a riveting plot.

    Story
    (3368)

    As dusk approaches a small Dublin suburb in the summer of 1984, mothers begin to call their children home. But on this warm evening, three children do not return from the dark and silent woods. When the police arrive, they find only one of the children, unable to recall a single detail of the previous hours.

    Twenty years later, the found boy, Rob Ryan, is a detective on the Dublin Murder Squad and keeps his past a secret. But when a 12-year-old girl is found murdered in the same woods, he and Detective Cassie Maddox find themselves investigating a case chillingly similar to the previous unsolved mystery.

    Amazon Customer says: "A near-flawless audiobook (but for one thing...)"
    "Creepy and compelling mystery"

    Story

    Compelling story with a main character one wants to shake. Excellent narrator for main voice though I wish he could have done Irish accents for the others.
