I don't normally read this type of book however I thought I would give it a go . The reviews all said it was a good read and they were not wrong .
The one shocking point about this thriller is that "it might be true"... Of course this story is not true, but the characters and the events might easily have happened separately!!
I just loved this book, couldn't stop listening to it. I would very highly recommend. This is the first review I have ever done but felt it was so worthy of note
This is a very good book, I was totally immersed throughout the book and intrigued by the main character. A Decent story length, so I was not left wondering what happened at the end - I hate that. I will most definitely come back and read this again. Lovely narration too.
This was one of the best books i have ever listened to ,and the narrater was brilliant
"Twists and turns with every page"
Really enjoyable story that keeps you guessing right to the end, wanting to find out more every time
I really enjoyed this book!
None of the usual predictable plot lines and crime clichés, just likeable characters and cleaver twists that make for an entertaining read.
It is easier to see why this has become a best seller and I will be reading work by this author again, thoroughly recommend.
The is the first book that I have had by Reginald Hill that has not been one of the Daziiel and Pascoe series and was concerned that I would be disappointed with it. I should not have worried it was excellent and kept me enthralled right up until the last chapter. What helped of course was it was wonderfully read by Jonathan Keeble who was the best narrator of a talking book I have heard. At times you almost forgot that you were listening to a book being read but listening to a play on Radio 4. I have looked for other books read by Mr Keeble but there are not many which is a great shame I can only hope that this changes in the future. On another sad note this was probably the last book written by Reginald Hill before he died.
I had never heard of Reginald Hill even though I am an author myself, and I can't remember why I chose this audiobook, maybe because its length. I listen to books rather than ruin my eyesight these days, and longer books are more cost effective.
Well, what a treat this author, and the narrator, turned out to be. The characters are all totally plausible, and even though the plot demands a certain suspension of scepticism I know that fact can be stranger than fiction any day. I'll be looking for more of mr Hill's novels to be sure.
"A truly great listen!"
This was only my second download from Audible and did a fair amount of research before selecting this title...but I was well rewarded. The skill of the author and the skill of the narrator are all too evident. The plot is sublime and the tension builds steadily. Yes, maybe the end could have been a little stronger but taken as a whole I would not hesitate to recommend this title!
