Inga manages to escape from a house of terror where she was held as a sex slave along with other girls who were kidnapped. She is chased into the woods and runs onto the road, almost falling under the wheels of an approaching car. She thought, it would be better to die that way than to return to her captors. The driver of the car, to her surprise, saves her. He brings her to his house and introduces her to his family: his mother, his father, and his younger sister. He gives Inga a key to a separate room and brings her food. She appreciates his help and calls him her knight from the road. All she needs now is a phone to make a call to her mother. Her savior, Alman, says they don't have one in the house. He's also not in a hurry to take her from his house in the woods to the town of Quiet River where she can talk to police. And Inga began to doubt the noble intentions of her savior. After some time she starts to think this house is worse than the one she was imprisoned in before, if that was possible.

Thoroughly enjoyable audio book
I think the audio version really brought the characters to life in a way I wouldn't have done if I'd read it. I don't own the printed version so this is only my opinion
I felt the best bit was the main two characters, Inga and Anthony were very believable. In addition they were both likeable and that makes a big difference. If you don't like or can't relate to the characters then the outcome of the book becomes of little or no importance. They really made the story for me.
I haven't heard her narrate before, but I would listen to her narrate again
I find that American narrators don't always come over well with English audiences. Their accents are too difficult or their pronunciation of certain words can really spoil an audio book for me. Luckily, although I was unfamiliar with the narrator's accent, it wasn't an issue because her reading was spot on. Also, the subtle changes in her voice for the different characters was very good and consistent throughout the entire 10 hours. That is very impressive
