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...

Engrossing, dramatic, believable
Marnie Logan. Complex but sympathetic.
No, too long
Great story, which could have appeared OTT in less deft hands other than Robothams. Terrible actions by various characters are skilfully explained so that you at least understand them, while not condoning. Fabulous narration. Sean Barrett is the best I have ever heard.
"Another Quality Story From This Superb Author"
Gripping, Twist, Engrossed
The whole story
I really enjoy his narration of all the books by Michael Robotham. He really puts meat on the bones of all the characters and makes it easy to follow who is who.
When marine tried to get the insurance company to pay out. I could really picture how desperate she felt
I have yet to find a Robotham book I have not enjoyed.
What a brilliant story teller, I love his books have almost read them all and they just keep getting better.
Mr Robotham keeps you guessing until the end and I just love his characters
Sean Barrett is such an interesting and entertaining voice actor, he brings all the characters to life. I love his work and am currently listening to Jo Nesbo's Police read by him.
"Better than my first impression"
At first I was put off my the narrators voice but as the story progressed the voice of Sean Barrett was shown to be a perfect fit for this book. The novel kept you guessing and even when I thought I had worked it out (and was a bit disappointed at this) I learnt that I hadn't. Full of twists and turns and a changing storyline. Just when you think this story has no further to go, another twist in the plot is there. My first Michael Robotham book and not the last.
i love all of Michael Robothams book but this is fabulous - gripping and well written - translates to audio book very well
"Exciting with lots of twists"
Well read and the story draws you in to its twists and unexpected turns
It was a little scary and with unexpected twists
Yes it was captivating
Yes it's a clever tale
How creepy the story was it was very cleverly written.
I love anything Sean Barretts does especially Jo Nesbos books
Yes it's very good
The baddie makes your skins crawl !!!!
Absolutely! Totally engrossed from the beginning it kept you guessing until near the end
All of them in their own way I couldn't pick out a favourite character...
Yes..Say Your're Sorry and I have to say that this was far, far, far, superior. I haven't actually finished that book it may not be Sean's narration I think the story got boring...
Too many to single out one in particular to be honest.
Loved it loved it loved it! So engrossed in this audiobook I missed tube and bus stops whilst listening to it that is how good it was. Will definitely be listening to it again. Great narration and highly recommended.
"A gripping tale"
If you start listening to this make sure you have the whole day free as you will not be able to put the book down or rather turn the cd off! It is the powerful voice of the narrator and his compelling tones that really enhance the narrative and will hypnotise you from start to finish.
"Another great one by Michael Robotham"
Gripping, excellent, slick
This is one of my favourite narrators. He is one of the few that can "do voices" and he reads at a perfect pace. Also I adore his voice. He is a natural and I wish he narrated a lot more than he does.
All of Michael Robotham's books are a MUST READ.
