Sadly a little disappointed, the plot sounded like this book was right up my street, it did take me a couple of attempts to really get into this book, I was determined I wasn't going to give up. I did enjoy the book, a couple of things in the plot didn't ring true to me, won't spoil it for you though. But yes I did enjoy it, however the ending was a little disappointing. This book didn't leave me sat in the drive outside the house in the car, desperate to hear the next twist or turn, unlike many others I have listened to recently, Overall just a shame it didn't live up to my expectations.

This for me unfortunately, felt endless.
'breathless edgy staccato narration & a couple of ludicrously stereotyped characters made this one I had to stop before the end; I've no idea how this tale completes but heyho.
The writer clearly has talent with language but the plot..!

I've recently become a fan of Christobel Kent, with her almost stream-of-consciousness style of unfolding a narrative. The story is told very much from the perspective of her protagonist and develops in the manner of thought, with random connections, recollections and ideas provoked by what's going on in the action, so that the story unfolds in patches, with a misty confusion like real life. The characters come into focus and then recede as the heroine interprets and then reinterprets their motivations, keeping the suspense level high. My only quibble is that there are some aspects of the plot which are a little extreme but Kent maintains the willing suspension of disbelief through her masterful unravelling of the facts of the story. The narration is excellent and contributes to the drama.
