Frieda is haunted by the thought that Hannah might be as much of a victim as her family. Frieda soon begins to realise that she's up against someone who'll go to any lengths to protect themselves....

OK but a little similar to previous volumes
can't say only ever listen to books very rarely read an actual book
I love Carlson, and Joseph, although they didn't feature quite so much this time, if there is going to be a Sunday, and I hope there will be I think Frieda needs to get a bit of OOOmph
Yes, up there with the best, she has such a lovely reading voice..
No, not at all I like to savour the stories from Nicci French
Yes, not as good as previous instalments a few similarities to the storyline, definitely trailed off towards the end, and a bit of a mediocre ending to be honest
It was probably my mistake for expecting the kind of Nicci French stories that I've read in the past, which were full of intrigue, underlying threats and suspense. This wasn't. There were too many references to previous novels about the main character which is annoying when you haven't read tany of the other Freida Klein novels. I missed the dark, menacing and oppressive atmosphere of works such as Under the Skin and The Memory Game.
Only those that don't feature Freida Klein.
