hard going

very well narrated, compelling, but unremittingly miserable. Avoid if you are given to bouts of depression!!!

A very good and gripping story

My initial attraction to this book was because of its setting (I have intimate knowledge of Herne Bay) and I was very curious to find out how well a thriller would work in what I think of as a pleasant but fairly boring seaside town. I have to say I was very impressed by the way the author captured the atmosphere of the place and gave it a very believable sinister edge. OK - some liberties were taken with some of the minor facts about the geography but there was perfect logic in setting this story in a location like Herne Bay where nobody expects really dreadful things to happen. The underlying themes of war, PTSD, child abuse and false memories were intelligently explored and I was genuinely gripped throughout the tale. The structure of the story (including an interrogation of the main character by a psychologist) kept me intrigued and this was one of the few books of this type where I felt there was a plausible plot.
The narrators were very good and added character to the voices of the two female protagonists. My only quibble (and not enough for this to lose a star) is that the reading was quite slow and this was remedied by me changing the setting to 1.25. I recommend this highly and will look out for more books by this author.
