Publisher's summary

A miscarriage of justice could have deadly consequences in this taut and pacey psychological thriller. 

She thought she knew everything about her sister. It seems she was wrong.... 

DC Jo Boden was 11 years old when her older sister, Sarah, was brutally murdered during her first year at university. Her boyfriend, Nathan Wade, was convicted of the killing. 

Now, 15 years later, Wade is being released on licence, and documentary filmmaker Briony Rowe says she can prove his innocence. 

The Boden family has never recovered from the tragedy, and they have always been certain that Wade is guilty. But Jo, who grew up believing her sister was perfect in every way, starts to question the evidence which put Wade behind bars. And perhaps Sarah harboured some very dark secrets of her own....

very good, better than the summary

This book had a lot more substance and webs than I thought, the plot and twists wove nicely. I thought I had it figured out almost the whole time, to the point where I was almost disappointed –– but I was wrong. Although, even if I did correctly predict anything, I would've still thought the book was good because as whole the story was executed well. I've been listening to a lot of very sloppy mystery/thrillers lately, this was a good change.

Don’t do it.

This book is NOT worth the credit. I’ve gotten a plethora of audiobooks and this is the first review I’ve ever left. This book is just that bad. There is a twist, that you probably won’t see coming, at the end but the agony of listening to this painfully boring book to get there is not an equal trade off. If there had been a single plot, maybe it’d have been ok.

Loved it!

This was my first book by this author and I loved it. Wasn't crazy about narration (Lucy Brownhill) but can't wait to check out her other books.

Overrated!

Seriously, this was tame. Save your credit. Children's fiction gets more thrills than this title.

Slow moving, but good enough.

It took the first half of the book to figure out what was going on, and then suddenly it all wrapped up and was finished.
Narration was very good, but the story line was too long and drawn out.

Avoid it

Honestly the audio was hard to get through. I normally love books narrated by the British but this was a mess. And the story just dragged on. I have never struggled to finish an audiobook this much

Bad narrator

I haven't finished it yet but really I have to tell you to watch out for this narrator. She is jerky and staccato and drives me crazy. I feel as if I am being peppered with buckshot as she speaks. I will try to get through it and comment on the story when I have finished it.

Really good!

I find myself disappointed by so many audiobooks lately, but I was quite surprised that I truly enjoyed this one. Although Lucy Brownhill can be a little on the breathy, whispery side, it was a decent narration of an intriguing story. It kept my interest and moved well along nearly up until the end where it kind of meandered a bit and got a little wobbly. It seems the author realized she needed to end it somewhere and just kind of ‘made it happen’. But overall a decent listen with a good twist. I will listen to a Susan Wilkins book again!
