I've read/listened to a number of books by the Nicci French duo of writers and rate this as one of the better ones. It starts, like many thrillers, with the 'heroine' being pretty stupid in her response to finding a dead body, but putting that aside, the story takes off and makes you want to listen. You'll have to concentrate, though, as the construction of the book is complicated as it keeps switching between before and after the death. The authors help by flagging each switch with the words 'Before' or 'After' but if you stop listening during a chapter it takes a few minutes before you get your bearings again. Some of the Nicci French books are gratuitously violent, but, thankfully, not this one. It's an intriguing thriller with lots of twists and turns and a surprising ending. The reader is excellent and I enjoyed the book.

This is a very believable story - ordinary, well-meaning people committing crimes for the best motives. It is narrated extremely well. She manages to differentiate between the various characters using subtle variances in pitch and/or accent to great effect. I'd recommend this audiobook!
