Publisher's Summary

When a stranger asks Jo Blackmore for a lift, she says yes, then swiftly wishes she hadn't. The stranger knows Jo's name; she knows her husband, Max, and she's got a glove belonging to Jo's two-year-old daughter, Elise. What begins with a subtle threat swiftly turns into a nightmare as the police, social services and even Jo's own husband turn against her. No one believes that Elise is in danger. But Jo knows there's only one way to keep her child safe - run.

Another cracker from C L Taylor

Yet another fantastic standalone novel from C L Taylor. Captivating characters, twists and turns- this is on a par with The Missing. Loved it. Wonderful narration as well. If you like Taylor's previous novels you'll love this one too.

A really gripping story

I was absolutely hooked right from the very beginning. It was so full of drama and suspense with so many twists and turns. Katie Scarf read the story so well, really living every moment. I can't wait to hear more CL Taylor read by Katie.

While nothing new, it is well executed

The structure of this jam-packed, fast paced novel is well-laid out, moving from the protoganist's voice to a mysterious person continuously. While the enigmatic chapters were less than mysterious, as I figured out who it was near the beginning, it is clear and not too overdone. It is sad as there are many mothers treated this way especially through the systems, not believed and thought of as unfit. Hence it seems realistic with a sense of tension throughout

This author always writes about weak women

Unbelievable plot
Spends over half the story repeating the main characters problems
Wish I had remembered her last book with the last weak woman!

A chore to get through

I really liked the other books from this author but this was not a good one. the story was full and uninteresting, all characters were unsympathetic and the twists were not worth it. I struggled to the end but I'll be getting a refund on this turkey I'm afraid.

Sent back for refund

Another predictable, slightly boring book. I keep trying this genre , but there's nothing new: certainly no thrills.

Average

Story was good to begin with but got really annoying when the husbands character began to explain his plot half way through. As though the listener was too stupid to work it out on their own, that ruined it for me.
The narrator was a little irritating also, would have been better to have use multiple narrators as she struggled with different characters voices.
Would only recommend if its a free book and you are struggling to find something to listen to or to read.
I regret paying for it.
