Kate Priddy makes an uncharacteristically bold decision to move from London to Boston after her cousin, Corbin Dell, suggests a temporary apartment swap. But soon after her arrival, Kate makes a shocking discovery - Corbin's next-door neighbour, a young woman named Audrey Marshall, has been murdered. When the police begin asking questions about Corbin's relationship with Audrey and his neighbours come forward with their own suspicions, a shaken Kate has few answers to tell.

"Not great, not bad."
Definitely better and worse out there, good story but somehow I couldn't really care about Kate. Henry sounded like the kind of bloke it would be fun to share a beer with though!
"Well written and well read"
I enjoyed this ..quite simply mr Swanson didn't let me down again , full of twists and turns and gripping until the last word
No. The book was clearly written by an American, judging by the Americanisms 'gotten', 'sidewalk' etc, but read in clear 'BBC' English. It would have been improved by being read by an American
It is a pity that the problems that the Kate character had were not explained in greater detail from the start. Also, the relationship between Corben and Henry wasn't gone into in any great detail either; their personalities could have been developed more
Her 'BBC' English didn't match up to the American writing
Not ever to listen to any more by this author.
"Spoilt by disappointing ending."
I agree with other reviewer, turn the speed up to 1.25 or it is painful to listen to. This could so easily have been a 4 star listen but sadly when it finished I was left utterly disappointed and a bit shocked. Such a shame as I had grown fascinated with the story after a slow start. Lots of things were painfully obvious and whilst you couldn't guess the ending you feel somewhat cheated by it. I don't want to say it's not worth a credit as so much of it is and it won't be the first book I've read where the being has been slightly disappointing. This may well be better as a movie - maybe that was the intention?
"An enjoyable listen overall."
I was gonna say a disappointing conclusion, but probably fairer to say , not the ending I was expecting or I would have written but it kept me listening every spare moment I had over the weekend. it took me a while to warm to the narration but found by speeding it up it sounded more pleasing to my ear. Couldn't not recommend because lots of extremely well written and creeping/scary/unsettling moments.
"Gripping, well told, great book."
Really enjoyed this audiobook from start to finish. I've advised my boyfriend too listen to it now! A great listen!
"So insanely dull"
Absolutely nothing unique or interesting about it. I held out to the end hoping there would be an exciting twist but omg what a waste of my life. The end is as boring, predictable and pointless as the rest of the book. The characters were annoying and vapid. The narrator was boring and talked so slowly. Please don't buy this book, it's so bad. If you insist on doing so, at least speed the narration up to 1.25x to make it slightly bearable. I loved The Kind Worth Killing hence why I bought this but this is the worst audiobook I've ever listened to.
"Loved, if only she hasn't kept saying 'gotten'. "
It sounds daft coming from English accent. And faucet? For goodness sake IT'S A TAP
