Collapse of a family
The Wainwrights, on the surface, are an ideal family. Sean and Natty have been together since they were teenagers and after nearly 20 years have a successful business and two delightful daughters so what could go wrong? The answer is the arrival of Natty's old friend, Eve, I experienced rage on Natty's behalf, anger at her sometime stupid behaviour and disgust at the way that Sean handled the problems. Listening to this book was an emotional roller-coaster, right up to the final twist. Janine Birkett was an ideal narrator.

Yes I think so. It's a good combination of analysing relationships, marriage and family combined with a psychological thriller set against an everyday family background . A very enjoyable read
The portrayal of the 'friend' and how her manipulative nature and past background unfolded.
The ending - but I wouldn't reveal this so as not to spoil for others
Yes - if I could have done, I would!
