Marnie Logan often feels like she's being watched. Nothing she can quite put her finger on - a whisper of breath on the back of her neck, or a shadow in the corner of her eye - and now her life is frozen. Her husband Daniel has been missing for more than a year.
Depressed and increasingly desperate, she seeks the help of clinical psychologist Joe O'Loughlin. Joe is concerned by Marnie's reluctance to talk about the past, but then she discovers a book packed with pictures, interviews with friends, former teachers, old flames and workmates Daniel was preparing for her birthday. It was supposed to be a celebration of her life. But it's not the story anyone was expecting...

"Please stop the awful child's voices!"
I am only just over halfway through this and enjoying it mostly but feel compelled to leave this review as a warning to other listeners. Sean Barrett (the narrator) does a really bad line in kid's (and to a lesser extent women's) voices.
There is a lot of kid's dialogue in this one!!!!
"A real page-turner."
I found Michael Robotham's novel unputdownable, as it were. At times I made myself stop listening, as at others I just ignored things that I needed to do. This is my first of his novels, but definitely not my last. If you enjoy fast-paced writing that carries you along, this is for you.
Of course, part of this feeling is created by Sean Barrett's narration. When you see his name on a book it guarantees a good performance, in my experience. He seems to be able to bring out the best in a story, whatever it is. I've heard so many good readings from him that I no longer find it possible to say which is his best.
This book has a mystery, but it's not too difficult to work it out, the clues are all there. It is in the telling that the books' strength lies. Definitely worth a listen!
"Not Robotham's best"
It was, but this is nowhere near as good as Robotham's other books, such as Shatter.
Yes, I have listened to most of his books, and I must say they are all better than this one.
He is as good as always.
This is a good thriller, but somewhat disappointing for fans of Robotham's previous books.
I did enjoy this story. I enjoyed the way it was set out. It is a great thriller and as always the amazing voice of Sean Barrett does a great job in adding to the atmosphere. It isn’t a scary thriller (although I think this may have been the authors aim!) and this story does have a lot of twists and unexpected turns in its telling, but it is set out almost like a play and you are taken on a journey of “what the hells…” and “you gotta be kidding…” scenarios – some of which are very predictable, but at the same time it is worth the journey. For those who read this sort of book regularly it won’t take you long to work out the plot but it is nicely written and of course, beautifully read. Enjoy.
Another gripping story from this author, I find that you feel you are almost part of the book the story draws you in and keeps you guessing
"A Great Listen"
This was one of those books that you really don't want to turn off! It started off as a rather mundane story about a woman and her children trying to survive after her husband went missing. After that the best way to enjoy this story is to carry on listening............
The end chapters are really dramatic and lead to a conclusion that is unexpected.
I don't think that this film would transpose into a film
A really enjoyable thriller. I will listen to the book again despite knowing the outcome. Well written. Thank you
about 2nd or 3rd
the unexpected ending
he is great . He puts the suspense into it with his voices
and unexpected ending definitely
this was a great read it had you caught up all the time there was never a time were I felt this is being drawn.It is a storyline that keeps on going throughout the entire book
This was the first Michael Robotham novel I read. It was excellent. Gripping and a book I couldn't put down.
This was the start of my Michael Robotham obsession.
"This got me hooked to audible books!"
I have already recommended this book to my husband who has also become an audible book fan.
The story is excellent and brilliantly read. I have gone on to buy several more books by Michael Robotham - brilliant.
Sitting on my drive at home unable to stop the car until I got to the end of a chapter!
I enjoyed the whole book from start to finish.
This was a compelling listen. Tense and full of twists. Kept me guessing all the way through.
I have now listened to all of this series of books by Michael Robotham and this one did not disappoint. I always enjoy Sean Barrett's narration and for me he brings the characters to life. I have just bought a new audio book, just because Sean Barrett is narrating.
The twists and turns in the story kept me thoroughly entertained all the way through the book and I can't wait for the next book in the series!
