Audible Editor Reviews

Plunging listeners into a nightmarish realm of child abduction and torture, And Hope to Die was born of a star-studded partnership between three Australian masters of psychological suspense. The brainchild of crime masters John Clanchy and Mark Henshaw - working together here under the pseudonym J. M. Calder - this harrowing horror story finds a capable suitor in the stark, sinister strains of actor Humphrey Bower, an Earphone Award-winning performer of crime fiction. Reeling from a family tragedy, Lieutenant Solomon Glass is set on the trail of a crazed serial kidnapper who demands suicide in exchange for the release of his child victims. Three mothers are already dead, and only by indulging in the maniacal whims of the kidnapper can Glass hope to stall the violence.

Publisher's Summary

A fourth child abduction, an anonymous letter to a mother making a promise - kill yourself and your child will be released - and two women are dead already.

Solomon Glass has just survived his own nightmare: a tragedy, an internal investigation, and a spell off the force. In his race to uncover the kidnapper, Glass must enter the darkest side of himself, a place he's barely able to go but where he knows he will find the answers. And the more he learns, the more he suspects that's exactly what the killer wants him to do. So begins a deadly game of cat and mouse, played for the highest stakes of all. Cross your heart. This is a dark, powerfully compelling psychological thriller that will chill you to the core.

What the Critics Say

"Memorable both for the frightening opening scenario and the savage change of direction that the plot takes midway through. This is a thriller to savor." (Australian Crime Fiction Database)

    "Too dark for me, but well-written."
    If you could sum up And Hope to Die in three words, what would they be?

    Anticlimactic at end.


    What about Humphrey Bower’s performance did you like?

    Bower is my absolutely favorite narrator. However, I did not like his presentation of the characters in this work. His American accents, I thought, were just a little off, and one of the younger characters sounded old.


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

    Dark psychological thriller.
