She's only been gone two hours. Her husband, David, was meant to be looking after their two-week-old daughter. But when Alice Fancourt walks into the nursery, her terrifying ordeal begins, for Alice insists the baby in the cot is a stranger she's never seen before. With an increasingly hostile and menacing David swearing she must either be mad or lying, how can Alice make the police believe her before it's too late?

I gave up with this one - and I don't often do that. I got about half way through and decided to flick to the end, heard what was coming and couldn't be bothered to finish the rest of it which was a shame as the premise was quite interesting. I became irritated beyond words with Alice - yup, can see why she was a holistic therapist. The police procedure appeared shonky at best. My only regret is that I didn't listen to it earlier then I could have returned it.
"Another tense thriller"
I wouldn't listen again- too many other books to listen to. And I know what happened now- The thrill is listening and trying to work out the mystery...
Simon Waterhouse in his arrogance!
Vivienne was expressed so coldly - very skilfully I thought. All the characters are well read with no confusion about who is who.
Some aspects turned my stomach- She writes so powerfully about a woman in a vulnerable position.
I have just bought the next book!
More believable characters lest predictable plot
No this was the weakest part of the audiobook. She was totally miscast
The relationship between Charlie and Simon
My first encounter with a Sophie Hannah book - good listen but a little strange and lacking plot.
