My name is Piper Hadley and I went missing on the last Saturday of the summer holidays three years ago.
When Piper and her friend Tash disappeared, there was a huge police search, but they were never found. Now Tash, reaching breaking point at the abuse their captor has inflicted on them, has escaped, promising to come back for Piper. Clinical psychologist Joe O'Loughlin and his stalwart companion, ex-cop Vincent Ruiz, force the police to re-open the case after Joe is called in to assess the possible killer of a couple in their own home and finds a connection to the missing girls. But they are racing against time to save Piper from someone with an evil, calculating and twisted mind....

"The usual high standard"
I wasn't sorry!
I think it was all memorable but the scenes in the cellar stick in my mind
I am working my way through the series and know that as soon as I hear his first words I am in for a memorable performance.
I found it almost upsetting as it was so plausible.
The book follows the others in the series and the continuing threads make reading them like visiting an old friend.
"Read the complete series"
Another excellent book
Excellently narrated by Sean Barrett and yet another story that I listened to from start to finish in one go
Would suggest any crime novel read by Sean Barrett is most definitely recommended
Is range of voices and internation is 2nd to none very appreciated by a visually impaired listener
As well as these series of books I would suggest Joe nesboas Sean narrates those as well
"Compelling, chilling and utterly moving."
I had to hold back the tears. I was terrified for the victim. Sean Barrett was at his scintillating best. Every character was superbly portrayed; especially Piper Hadley.
"narrator brings the story to life."
robotham writes a good story and Sean Barrett makes it worth listening to!
"Complex and compelling"
I have read so many crime novels I'm usually sure who the guilty party is way before the end but I was uncertain right until the end in this one. Grisly details I could have done without but great characters kept me hooked.
"Fast paced and exciting"
I absolutely loved this book! It had plenty of characters, plenty of twists, and an excellent ending. I am self-employed and supposed to be working .... But instead I am listening to see what happens next! A great detective story that was well worth the purchase.
"Gripping story. Fantastic narrator."
Kept me interested right from the start. Lots of great characters, gripping story lots of twists and turns. Kept me guessing throughout.
Sean Barrett has THE most amazing voice, so calming to listen to. I began listening to Michael Robotham's books purely because Sean narrated them and I found I enjoyed Michael's books immensely . So very pleased.
"Great story telling."
This is the 2nd book of Michael Robotham's I've listened to. Both great books and looking forward to 'Shatter' next.
It is tightly written and the pace never slackens. I couldn't put it down. The narration is first class.
This is my first Michael Robotham book.... I'll be downloading the rest!
"Not for the squeamish"
I haven't read the print version
I would compare it to Robotham's other books, although I would say that this one is probably the most unsettling in parts, with graphic depictions of sexual violence towards adolescents.
Barrett is very good as always.
The depictions of sexual violence against young girls made me a little uneasy, but otherwise this is a well written thriller with plenty of suspense and a relatable protagonist.
