Short but packs a punch

I was delighted to win this audiobook as I always wanted to acquaint myself with John Nicholl's work. As it is a relatively short listen, it only took me two sunbathing sessions to listen to the brilliant narrator's performance. Having been a victim of a bullying father, I felt huge empathy for the poor wife. The story grabbed me by the throat from the start and the tension was maintained until a satisfying conclusion. Well worth a listen.

"The last throw of the dice."

What does Jake Urry bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you had only read the book?

Jake Urry has, arguably, the most sinister reading voice in audio when he decides to use it. And in this short novella by John Nichols he uses it to perfection.
Cathy has been married for three years to a police inspector, respected and liked at work. Unfortunately for Cathy, at home he is a monster, taking pleasure from the pain he inflicts on her, both physically and mentally. When she discovers she is pregnant for the second time, she decides she can't let him kill this unborn child as he did the first. But how can she Saxe herself and her baby when even her mother doesn't believe what she tells her ...

Especially terrifying given that this sort of domestic violence and subjugation is not just a fictional concept but only too real for many women, Jake Urry's reading of Bully Boy Blue intensifies the awfulness of the situation, the desperation and fear of never being free - and the terrible way out that Cathy chooses. But the most frightening part is the ending ...

A dark tale not to be missed by fans of psychological thrillers.
