Publisher's Summary

The sensational new thriller from the author of the Richard & Judy best seller Lie With Me.

He saved your son's life.

Does that mean you have to give him yours?

It starts with a holiday. A three-year-old boy on a beach, and the hero who saves his life.But nothing is ever that simple.

Tessa and Marcus know they owe Dave Jepsom more than they can ever repay.Yet even as he is walking from the sea with their son in his arms, there is something about him that makes them uneasy. He is not like other people that they know. Being with him makes them confront truths about themselves they would rather not see. The shock of that moment will change everything. And it's not how things start that matter.

But how they end....

Just too long!

This starts off wonderfully - rather like a Patricia HIghsmith. However, as the hours drag on, I realise the scene is "being set" - but for what? The print version is 352 pages, about 100 pages too long. You lose all interes t in these Sloanies/yuppies and their various misdeeds and problems.....I have not actually finished this. I will probably stagger on to the end - but without much interest.
Excellent performances by the readers.

Gripping, unusual and superbly narrated

I cannot fault this latest offering from Sabine Durrant. I have enjoyed all her books so far, but this the best yet. The characters are all very real and very cleverly observed, and the chain of events, spiralling towards the end, one mistake or mischance following another, have a horrible inevitability about them. Despite that, this book keeps you guessing, and the ending is a real shock. The narration, from both male and female readers, is perfect.

Take Me In

Once again Sabine Durrant sets her latest psychological thriller in the moneyed streets of gentrified Wandsworth, so expect loads of premium name dropping and 'kitchen suppers'. I did find the central characters, Marcus and Tessa,
who met when they both worked for the same PR company, insufferably smug if I'm honest, making it difficult to have any sympathy for their plight.

I think that the plot, which switched between the first person narrative of the couple to be a bit convoluted at times and there were a few stands which I expected to play an important role in the story, but they did not.

The narrators, Rory Kinnear and Morven Christie both did a sterling job, trying to inject some life into the somewhat staccato text. That said, Kinnear did whisper some of the female parts in a very odd manner.

The ending was far too abrupt considering how long it took the reader to get there.

Loved it.

A cleverly thought out novel with believable characters though Tess was a bit annoying and I felt sorry for Josh. Ideas about class and snobbery were toecurlingly good. I didn't want it to end.

What on earth?

I was so pleased with another of this authors books that I was itching to listen to this one.
I waited for hours for it to get going and after what seemed like days of waiting, the announcement “We hope you have enjoyed this audible presentation” shocked me as I thought it must be a mistake. It was a real “is that it?” moment. Total lack of imagination on the authors part and rather lazy writing. The narrators whilst they had nice voices, read the book in a depressed and dreary tone which often meant I switched off and had to rewind it several times. This is a first for me. I’m so disappointed I will be returning this book. Sorry Sabine but this is not up to your usual standard. Love the others you’ve done but this was really quite awful and a rather pointless book.

Thrilling

I loved the growing suspense in this novel which was expertly narrated. The switch in viewpoints between the two main characters increased the tension leading to an exciting, edge of the seat conclusion..I admit to being a lover of Sabine Durrant ‘s novels and this is yet another to recommend.

Needs a twist

Great writing describing life in London, and dementia, but the plot is relatively weak for this writer.

Fantastic narration. Great book

The 2 narrators are excellent. Best I've heard. The male voice at times sounds like Hugh Grant. I listened to this in 36 hours. Fab book. It hits the intimate feelings of women and men. Interesting story. Unexpected ending.

So much to say so little to offer!

Terrible slow winded book which has characters you don’t like and a storyline which goes no where!

Missing a chapter?

Great story and entirely understandable until the very end. I don't want to give anything away but does anyone else think an additional chapter was needed?
Great narration.
