Publisher's Summary

A dark and gripping debut psychological thriller with a horrifying premise and a stinging twist.

Alex Taylor wakes up tied to an operating table. The man who stands over her isn't a doctor. The choice he forces her to make is utterly unspeakable. But when Alex re-awakens, she's unharmed - and no one believes her horrifying story.

Ostracised by her colleagues, her family and her partner, she begins to wonder if she really is losing her mind. And then she meets the next victim.

So compulsive you can't stop listening. So chilling you won't stop talking about it.

    "Darn it! I was hoping..."

    I really wish the big reveal was something different - more interesting! BUT, even with that, I loved the characters in this story - they each were very well developed and believable. I had a theory of what was really going on, and I was wrong. I liked my version better though haha! But seriously, it does all come together in the end. The narration was great and she distinguished between each character well. Overall a decent psychological thriller. I would definitely read more from the author :-)

    "Fizzled out"

    It started off very promising, but just faded into silliness. I was waiting for some kind of mind blowing twist ending that never came. I do love the narrator though, and I was never bored.

    "EXCELLENT ALL AROUND"

    I listen to 1-3 audiobooks a week and eagerly await my pre-orders - so go I through mystery/thrillers much too quickly. That is why I was particularly pleased to find this book to be one of the better mystery/thrillers I’ve read in quite a while. The events unfold satisfyingly - nothing too subtle or too obvious, and the character development is complete and engaging. Additionally, the writing and storyline are both polished - even with the slew of new mystery/thrillers available, most are lacking and clumsy in execution. I do wish the ending was longer so we could really learn in detail how everyone got what they deserved - but it was nonetheless still satisfying. I very much look forward to more of Liz Lawler’s books. Highly recommended - the summary doesn’t do it justice, it’s absolutely worth the credit.

    Fast pace thriller, I loved everything about this book. The narration was great with good changes of voice for each caricature.

    "Taylor-made Thriller"

    What a captivating start this book has. Imagine, being strapped to an operating table at the complete mercy of a mysterious stranger and Lawler ups the ante considerably with the ensuing interaction between captor and captive. It's an excellent premise and Lawler builds on it with a careful laying of characters and plot. Like most thrillers there is reliance on coincidence but there are also some clever touches and twists part-based on deeper medical knowledge.

    At times I felt some points within the book could have taken additional text to flesh them out a little more but that's probably me being fussy because it's an exciting ride to the end. One person who wasn't hanging around is the narrator Zara Ramm who seemed to be in a touch too much of a hurry to get through the book at the start. Either I got used to her pace or she calmed down though because I felt more comfortable after a while through the book.

    In short, enjoyable thriller, decent debut. Good medical knowledge added to the mix.

    "Not a good ending!!!"

    So it’s a lgreat plot but the whole book ( except for the last 20 minutes!) has the main female lead ( who we know is innocent) struggling to save her reputation with the people that were her friends!!
    This book did not leave you feeling good as the bad guys won until the last few minutes!!!!!
    To make the story memorable would have meant at leat two more chapters after the end ...following the main characters therefore leaving the reader feeling good/ satisfied. Which did not happen !!. I won’t be reading any more from this author which is a shame as it could have been so so great ( Movie status)
    I currently have read over 40 novels from an author that has got it so right!!! You need some tips from her and you could be great ! Nora Roberts/JD Robb ...the narration is first class however the writing leaves the listener feeling so so good and wanting more. You could achieve this with more attention to your story.

    "Far fetched story line"

    This book is mostly about messing with blood and gore. A boring far fetched dragged out story line.

    "Awful"

    The only good thing about this book was the narrator. The story was boring and very unimaginative. Utter waste of 9hrs.
