A wonderful gripping thriller with great twists and turns throughout.

Narrator is brilliant. A clear voice and reforms with crescendo when needed.

Please excuse any typos it's 2am and I have blurry eyes. Insomnia is now a happy tome thanks to audible but it can't help blurred sleepy vision.

Life Support; Gripping, hard to put down

I love this book. I can't rate it higher than I have already even though I really think it deserves more!

The story was a little hazy to begin with but I found once you listen carefully, the plot begins to unfurl, twisting and turning as it does. It is as though there are several storylines going on at once, but; that is all to be revealed in the bigger picture.

I found it so very gripping, I couldn't put it down. The narrators read very clearly and it was a total pleasure to listen to.

If you like thrillers, I can highly recommend this one!!
