Later, Joe has a visitor ¿ the woman's teenage daughter, a runaway from boarding school. She refuses to believe that her mother would have jumped off the bridge; not only would she not commit suicide, she is also afraid of heights. Joe wants to believe her, for how could a woman be driven to such a desperate act? And who might drive her to it? A terrifying psychological thriller, Shatter delves into the darkest recesses of the human mind.

Would you listen to Shatter again? Why?
Hmmm not for a long while... I love the buzz that the anticipation gives me and now that I know where the plot takes me.. well I will read another of his novels and go for another ride.
What did you like best about this story?
Great and gripping plot.
What does Tim Pigott-Smith bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?
Somehow he fleshes the characters out.
Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?
Any additional comments?
Once again a great ride and terrific entertainment that takes me away from the academic literature which I need to read.
This is a audiobook where most of the characters are so humble, you want them to be given the best outcomes considering the circumstances around them, but after awhile, you stop hoping this, and instead are just grateful everyone isn't dead or nearly so by the plot's end.
Well read, however - and in audiobooks, notwithstanding, that's pretty much the key to a good listen.
Intelligent story telling and excellently narrated. Interesting charactisation, fascinating insights into psychology, well paced, disturbing and edge of the seat thrilling. I had not previously known of this author's work. I intend to try another audio book soon; I just hope the next narrator is as accomplished as Tim Piggot-Smith.
