From the best-selling author of Between You and Me. Don't miss Lisa Hall's new gripping thriller.
Don't. Trust. Anyone.
It was supposed to be a fresh start. A chance to forget the past and embrace the future. But can you ever really start again? Or does the past follow you wherever you go?

Praise for Between You and Me:
"What a page turner! Compelling, chilling and an incredibly impressive debut." (Alexandra Brown)
"It's certainly one of the best debuts I have read in a while, it's compelling and shocking, and very cleverly crafted." (The Book Review Café)
"Hall packs a punch with this one and the ending left me gasping." (For the Love of Books)
"It is disturbing and chilling. It feels very real. And a quick mention for that twist! I did not see that coming at all. I usually spot these things and I didn't! Clever! Very clever!" (Northern Crime Reviews)
"Between You and Me is that kind of book. The one that makes you feel like you're there, you're experiencing the emotions, the hurt, the pain." (Bibliophile Book Club)
"Lisa Hall has wrote a harrowing, disturbing and chilling novel which I couldn't help but devour in a matter of days. She's one of those authors you don't see coming and bang best seller, up there with the greatest crime writers like Stuart McBride and Lee Child. She's one to watch." (Brunette Lifestyle)
"It is well written, emotional and jaw dropping. More please!!" [Jo Robertson, (NetGalley)]
It had all the hallmarks of decent book. However I found the stupidity of the "clueless " heroine to finally see through what was happening tiresome. And the ending beyond ugh. Especially when a neighborly bystander knew exactty what was going and did not intervene. Very disappointing.
I am an eBay seller who listens to approx. a book a day while taking & editing photos of my items. I love a good suspenseful mystery!
I've certainly listened to worse but this book is going on my list of Worsts! The entire thing was just so boring and so melodramatic. The main character is unbelievably naive and foolish choosing to overlook the obvious again and again and again which I found so annoying!!! The story has too many characters many of which were completely unnecessary as far as I could tell and NOT ONE is likeable! There is no suspense and no real mystery just a bunch of nonsensical drama that can all be seen in a lifetime television show. Cheating husband, insecure, suspicious wife with a traumatic past, jealous neighbor, 'hot' neighbor, uppity PTA ladies, "strange" behaviors in everyone.....blah blah blah blah blah! It just keeps going on and on round and round never getting to the point!
Don't waste your time or your money!
The story flowed well and had a lot of background info that weaved into the dynamics helping it all to make sense.
I wanted the main character to get a backbone and wake-up! The root of the problem was obvious throughout but she just wouldn't see it. Even though I couldn't quit listening, I had a hard time believing someone could be this stupid and fragile.
I liked the narrator's female voices but the male voices were just plain awful.
I hated the ending. I hated that her doctor and husband refused to listen to her, and never understood the reason for Olivia's presence in the story or why Tessa was not re-introduced at the end. The fact that no one would check into her accusations is not believable at all.
What person lets all the stupid things happen to them that went on in this story with out trying sort them out? the lost phone is an example , why was it not reported lost and blocked. This is not worth a credit . Awful waste of time
"What an awful ending!!!"
Such a shame about the finish - I was really disappointed with how it was left.
