While I was enthralled by this book at times, especially with the wonderfully performed narration. Overall, this book has no flow to it. At times the supernatural and mystery genres just collided and never commingled. Although it is cliche to say the storyline did very much remind me of Gone Girl, but bc of the storyline going everywhere I never seemed to be into it.
I don't know about you, but why are there so so so many 5 star reviews. I LOVE books, but so few are 5 star.
Good listen for the beach or car medium suspension of reality, some good twists that kept it from being at all predictable.
I adore English mysteries!!! I love nothing better than hearing a British accent in my earphones!
Yes, very original handling of an old genre.
Nicki's reading is marvelous. Richard's nasal tone is just short of annoying and makes all his "characters" sound much the same, but listenable.
Loved, loved,LOVED the ending!!!!
Can't wait for his next!
