Tedious and predictable.

Would you try another book written by Barbara Copperthwaite or narrated by Alison Campbell?

No re the author and possibly re the narrator.

What will your next listen be?

Not sure

Who might you have cast as narrator instead of Alison Campbell?

Not sure. I don't think anything could have enlivened such a tedious book.

What character would you cut from The Darkest Lies?

All of them!

Any additional comments?

I listened to the end waiting for the promised amazing twist. When I realised there wasn't one, I skipped several chapters just to get to the end.
