John Meron, a happily married father of two who's never been in trouble, receives a phone call that will change his life forever: his friend Jack Galley, a high-flying City lawyer, is screaming down the phone for help. As Meron listens, Galley is murdered. His last words, spoken to his killer, are the first two lines of Meron's address.
Confused and terrified, Meron scoops up his children and hurries out of the house. Just in time. Within minutes, a car pulls up outside, and three men get out. It's clear that they're coming for him. He's being hunted and has no idea why. And with his wife missing, an unidentified corpse in her office, and the police after him for murder, his life is about to get one hell of a lot worse...

An Absolute Winner!

When buying my monthly allocation of audio titles, I generally opt for those from the Crime & Thrillers section, so have a broad experience of this genre. I hadn't heard of this author before but chose to download this title on the basis that it had been shortlisted for an award and that the sample was tantalising to listen to. My expectations were therefore high and the book far exceeded them. Its pace was truly 'relentless' so much so that at times I was more than reluctant to turn off my iPod. After the book finishes, there is the added bonus of a conversation between the author and the actor who read it and who had done such a masterly job. This nicely rounded-off the positive listening experience I was was so sorry had ended. Thank you Audible, thank you Simon Kernick and and thank you Paul Thornley!

Excellent twisted plot

At first I thought this was just going to be a light-hearted and forgettable drama but it developed into a fast-paced and enthralling thriller with plenty of plot twists to keep me coming back to listen at every opportunity. The mundane background of the main protagonist and the south east suburban setting add an entertaining and novel dimension. The narrator does an excellent job of bringing the various well-rounded characters to life. Highly recommended.
