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...

"A Great Psychological Thriller badly read"
A different reader
The discovery of the Watching
No idea but someone who can "do" children's voices
It is a good story. The pace is excellent and well researched
Re recorded with a better reader would be good
"Got better as it went on"
I found the beginning confusing and I didn't warm to the main character very easily. Luckily i kept going and by an a couple of hours in I was intrigued enough to continue.
The plot was quite interesting and although there were red herrings galore it was fun to work out which parts were going to be relevant and that kept my interest.
The psychologist was a well developed character and i like the retired detective's interaction with people.
The main female character just never really set me alight, but with kids and a missing husband i could be empathetic. i just didn't like her very much and some of the stuff she did wasn't convincing. Plus there were a few moments in the plot when you really had to suspend your disbelief to get through it.
Overall i have given it a generous 4 stars because the plot won me over with all the strings of narrative fitting together at the end. Just don't take it too seriously :-)
"fantastic, gripping and captivating"
loved every moment of it, Sean Barrett's narration brings the story to life. highly recommended
I would definitely recommend this book. It was extremely well written... I thought I had sussed the murderer only to find out how wrong I was. I loved every minute of this book. Sean Barrett's reading only improved the story...
Great story keeps your interest up to the last page .
Interesting characters and an in sight into how we all have a dark sidei , if the lid comes off look out .
Excellent story with twists and turns along the way. Superb narration - highly recommended listen.
This is my first by this author. Excellent book really builds the imagery in your head.
Narrator great also, very distinctive between the characters.
Deff recommend. Will deff listen to another by this author and or the narrator
This is the first book I've read by Robotham, I bought it in a daily deal
It has the feel of Jo Nesbo, so if you like his work, this will be right up your street
I find it hard to fault it, but what really makes it for me apart from the twists and turns (some predictable, others, not so) is the narration by Sean Barratt, he has a voice that could create tension even if he was reading a weather forecast
"Suspense...at its best"
Really excellent ....gripping! Keeps your attention right to the end. First M.R. I have heard....won't be the last.
"Nerve tingling suspense"
Made creepy listening and great narrator.
The discovery of the secret area.
There are many moments of suspense and surprising twists in the plot.
I've only recently discovered this series and the writing is outstanding. Characters with depth, insight into motivation and plot that keeps your interest from start to finish. This one has the unreliable narrator, so it's difficult to judge whats truth and what's fiction. Plus the action is interspersed with comment from a shadowy voice; is he a perpetrator or saviour and who is he?
