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....

"Could not put it down!"
Great story & narration.
Was enthralled from the first paragraph.
A bit shocking in a couple of parts but not gratuitous.
"Brilliant loved this book."
I love the character of Joe and the way he sees things others don't.The narration is excellent in my opinion and really makes the book come alive. This narrator made the book most enjoyable for me.
Although you can listen to each story on its own without having to listen to the whole series I would recommend listening to all of the series so each one compares very well.
Sean Barrett really makes each character spring to life. His easy to listen voice makes you want to keep listening . I have even hunted out more books he had narrated. I really don't think the book would have been as good for me without his narration
There is a part where piper almost gets away only to be tricked by a car. This part had me on the edge of my seat. I just wanted to shout "don't do it".
Great storyline, great series with Joe O'Lockline and brilliant narration makes this a must for all.
Top notch.. Great story +++ gets you hooked and well worth a listen.. Enjoy the book
"is Barrett the best narrator around, in this genre?"
Barrett's wondrous, beautiful quality narration. I'm new to Michael Rowbotham & somehow in my head, the writer & narrator have merged and morphed into one - such a perfectly quirky combination; great story, great storyteller!
"Loved it, would recommend"
Definitely worth listening
All of it, kept me interested and I couldn't wait to listen
Once I got used to his voice I loved it. He plays the characters well, i don't have a favourite
A great series of books. I like them because they are a great mix of psychology, crime and personal life of the characters thrown in
Thoroughly enjoyed this book, for me even better than Shattered (though of course that too was brill), kept me listening from the very beginning. I would have listened to the whole book in one go in fact I very nearly did and am sorry to have finished it now.. Might listen again right away. Sean Barrett is a great narrator he brings the books to life. Buy it you won't regret it!
"One of the best"
This was more fast moving and action packed and all those words but still thoughtful..because Jo is. More centred on Jo and less on other characters although they did make an appearance. Also majored on victims which was spooky and felt weird. A lot of victims but two main girls real stars. This book was scarily realistic because you've read the headlines. ...for once glad I am too old...probably.
"Another great listen!!!!!"
Second time round on this series and I still love it. The depth of the characters is enthralling and Sean Barrett is a gifted narrator, bringing to life the great characters and conveying their emotions as well as their words.
This story was gripping right to the very end. Highly recommend the whole series and will look for more Sean Barrett narrations.
"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
