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...

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!
The narrator's voice captures the essence of this book adding a chilling element that you may not get from the print version.
That you don't see the twists and turns coming. You also have a great deal of sympathy for the main character. You are just willing it all not to be so!
Around chapter 30 things start slotting into place - if I told you the scene I liked most it would give it away.
More twists and turns than a loop the loop
Listen to this book - my boyfriend, who easily switches off to listening to audio books in the car was absolutely hooked!
"Michael Robotham scores again"
Tense,disturbing and engaging
Joe O'Loughlin has a real depth of character. Michael Robotham gives his characters a great balance you get to see both the personal and professional life which only adds to bring them to life. Joe who is a clinical psychologist helping people repair their broken lives, but he is a man who's life is far from perfect.
Sean Barrett has a voice like velvet soft yet powerful and helps bring whatever he reads to life.
Having listened to all of Michael Robotham's books on Audible I couldn't wait to hear this one and I listen at every opportunity.
The only disappointment was when it finished. I may have to wait another year for a new installment!
One of the best books I've listened to since using audible
The Woodcutter, for a well thought out plot
"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!!!!
"and a sting in the tail"
Without doubt. The thing is, it was not predictable. At every chapter there was a twist, but it was not a twist for the sake of a twist, nor was it unlikely. I found all the plot to be plausible.
The book created an atmosphere of being watched...as intended. Even when not listening to the book, there was a legacy of suspicion, paranoia in the back of my mind. How sad is it that I deliberately created driving chores and went to bed early....in order to find out what was happening next....!!
The last two minutes.... Great characters, great character interplay and yip. the sting in the tail....
....you might NOT be that paranoid....
I must comment on the talents of the narrator, Sean Barrett.
Absolutely fabulous performance. Super super super.
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.
