Publisher's Summary

Audra has finally left her abusive husband. She's taken the family car, and her young children, Sean and Louise, are buckled up in the back. This is their chance for a fresh start.

She keeps to the country roads to avoid attention and finds herself on an empty road in the Arizona desert, far from home. Looking for a safe place to stay for the night, she spots something in her rearview mirror. A police car is following her, and the lights are flickering. Blue and red.

As Audra pulls over, she is intensely aware of how isolated they are. Her perfect escape is about to turn into a nightmare beyond her imagining....

Dark secrets and a breathtaking race to reveal the truth lie at the heart of this enthralling thriller.

Critic Reviews

"A brilliant, relentless rollercoaster of suspense that shreds your emotions." (Peter James)

6 stars! Suberb!

This story is not what is to be expected from the description. A twist came early (much better than the usual cliched twists). I can say no more about it without giving spoilers. Suffice to say, I could not stop listening. The characters, dialogue, places and circumstances are exceptionally well written, and the narration may be the best I have ever heard (and I am not usually keen on American female narrators, as I find they are often nasal and high pitched). It's a wonderful book for anyone who enjoys crime fiction. My recommendation? Just buy it!

Brilliant

Enjoyed the story kept me on my toes being a mother especially, what I would like to do to these types.
Must remember that in real life there are no happy endings to this type of evil.

As good as any TV drama

I've got to say that it took a few chapters to get used to the narrator's halting, nervy, slightly odd narration style. But once you get past it, the narrator really is fantastic, she has an amazing range of voices and a very convincing man's voice. The story itself is as good as any high quality TV drama, and I found myself holding my breath whilst listening, in the same way I do when watching a tense crime/cop show.
I ended up listening to this in about 2 days - I stayed up until 3am, not able to turn it off! I'm disappointed to see that there are no more books on Audible from this author! Quite simply one of the best books I've ever had the pleasure of listening to.

Great book.

Strong, gripping story line but a subject we don't like to think could happen.

Excellent Portrayal of a Very Real Issue.

A very emotive subject is sensitively addressed in this novel. At first the story is very dark and depressing, but the plot progresses into a thoroughly believable storyline.
Well written and narrated - will certainly look forward to more from this author.

BRILLIANT STORY & WRITING

Tense, dramatic a real edge of your nerves listen... a “100% must do” book that had you thinking storylines that didn’t materialise, which was a plus for me!
Only minor negative was the mundane unnecessarily sympathetic narration which at times grated on me but not enough to affect my enjoyment of the writing!

I didn't like this book

I purchased it after seeing all the great reviews I didn't like the narrator I found him hard to follow and the story was disappointing it wasn't terrible but definitely didn't live up the all the great reviews I've seen.
