A gripping narrative from the master of the race against time thriller. Have you ever been in the wrong place at the wrong time? You are hiking in the Scottish highlands with three friends when you come across a girl. She is half-naked, has been badly beaten, and she can’t speak English. She is clearly running away from someone. Do you stop to help her? Even if it means putting your friends’ lives - and your own - in terrible danger?

"Not bad.. Beautifully narrated"
I had discovered Simon Kernick through my accidental find of 'Relentless' which I could not put down. This, on the other hand had potential but didn't do enough for me. It started and ended as abruptly as each other. Not enough twists and turns for me. Ok, but expected more.
"Beware Short Story"
As per usual Kernick captures your attention from the very beginning. Usual kernick fare of fast paced thriller, hard to believe situations but entertaining and easy to listen to
I admit I wouldn't have bought this if I had realised it was a short story. Having listened to many books by this author I assumed I was set for 9 hours or so of action packed listening and was disappointed when it ended so quickly and so unsatisfactorily
"very weak plot"
Such an unlikely plot being read like a child's night time story. Didn't enjoy this at all, unlike other Simon Kernick books I have read
