Audible Editor Reviews

Australian crime novelist Katherine Howell, who worked as a paramedic for 15 years, brings firsthand experience to this detective novel.

Paramedic Sophie Phillips finds herself with a husband, a police officer, in the hospital from a gun injury and a 10-month-old child who has been abducted. Detective Ella Marconi leads the police search for the child, but Phillips attempts to find her child herself with the help of her husband’s partner.

Caroline Lee uses an Australian accent and a gruff, plainspoken delivery that helps to accentuate the grittiness of Frantic and its subject matter.

Publisher's Summary

In one terrible moment, paramedic Sophie Phillips' life is ripped apart - her police officer husband, Chris, is shot on their doorstep and their ten-month-old son, Lachlan, is abducted from his bed. Suspicion surrounds Chris as he is tainted with police corruption, but Sophie believes the attack is much more personal - and the perpetrator far more dangerous... While Chris is in hospital and the police, led by Detective Ella Marconi, mobilize to find their colleague's child, Sophie's desperation compels her to search for Lachlan herself. She enlists her husband's partner, Angus Arendson, in the hunt for her son, but will the history they share prove harmful to Sophie's ability to complete her mission? And could one dangerous decision cause Sophie to ultimately lose everything important in her life?
