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!

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.
