Publisher's Summary

It starts with a trip to a local amusement park. David Harwood is hoping a carefree day at Five Mountains will help dispel his wife Jan's recent depression, black moods that have led to frightening thoughts of suicide. Instead, a day of fun with their four-year-old son Ethan turns into a nightmare.
When Jan disappears from the park, David's worst fears seem to have come true. But when he goes to the police to report her missing, terrified that she's planning to take her own life, the facts start to indicate something very different. The park's records show that only two tickets were purchased, David and Ethan's, and CCTV shows no evidence that Jan ever entered the park at all.
Suddenly, David's story starts to look suspicious - suspicious enough for the police to wonder if she's already dead, murdered by her husband. To prove his innocence and keep his son from being taken away from him, David is going to have to dig deep into the past and come face to face with a terrible childhood tragedy - but by doing that he could risk destroying everything precious to him.

A riveting thriller

I hadn't heard of this writer before but will certainly be looking out for more of his books. Never Look Away is an enthralling story with many unexpected twists and turns and a narrative drive that reminded me of Robert Goddard at his best. Investigator reporter, David Harwood, gets embroiled in a nightmare scenario after his wife of 6 years goes missing and he is suspected of murdering her. He uncovers surprise after surprise as he tries to prove his innocence.
The reader is excellent and I couldn't stop returning to the recording to find out what on earth was going to happen next.

Never Put It Down

A very fast paced and involving storyline, which had my headphones glued to my ears permanently until I'd reached the end. Never has housework been so enjoyable. Believable characters, great storyline. Well narrated. Definitely five stars for this one.
