Full of promise

Would you listen to The Safe House again? Why?

Not sure I would listen to it again, I enjoyed the book for the most part but found it too long by about half, a little repetitive and it was if the authors didn't know how to come to a conclusion and when they did I felt frustrated!

Would you be willing to try another book from Nicci French? Why or why not?

I normally love Nicci French books and especially those I have purchased from Audible, they are usually easy listening with a compelling edge.

What do you think the narrator could have done better?

I don't think I can fault Lucy Paterson, she read it brilliantly.

Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

I didn't listen to this in one sitting but I did finish it in a two day period.

A Slow Burner With A Really Juicy Twist

At the beginning it felt like a Police procedural. Then your whisked on emotional rollercoaster. Great Character development even greater story telling. Gentle yet Brutal too!
