Be careful who you trust.
The Mailer family are oblivious to the terrible danger that enters their lives when seven-year-old Anthony is referred to the child guidance service by the family GP following the breakdown of his parents' marriage.
Fifty-eight year old Dr. David Galbraith, a sadistic, predatory paedophile employed as a consultant child psychiatrist, has already murdered one child in the soundproofed cellar below the South Wales Georgian townhouse he shares with his wife and two young daughters.
Anthony becomes Galbraith's latest obsession and he will stop at nothing to make his grotesque fantasies reality.

Hard hitting subject, incredible story
Freightening, Shocking, Upsetting
From a purely narative point of view the Doctor would be my favourite. As he's the primary character he stands out and has incredible depth. However, his wife Cynthia becomes the dark horse of this story, finding me cheering her on during the last chapter.
Jake's inflections whilst speaking as the Doctor convey this man's brutal nature. Spot on!
When the ring calls your name.
A gripping book with a subject matter I was initially very wary of. Powerful scenes from the first chapter are shocking and not for sensitive individuals. However, beyond that the narrative allows the listener to delve into the psyche of an utterly deranged and incredibly cruel man. A classic battle between police investigation and the criminal ensues, with a highly developed plot and a twist at the end that left me screaming in delight.
Superb text, narrated beautifully and sensitively by Jake Urry.

This is my first Audible book and I'm extremely impressed. I've listened to audiobooks in other forms before, but White is the Coldest Colour was of exceptional quality
My favorite character is Dr. Galbraith - not because I like him, but because he's so skillfully constructed that I hated him to the very core. I don't think I ever loathed a character so much in any book I've ever read.
Jake Urry's voice was perfect for this dark and disturbing story. He did an excellent job with a subject most people would cringe to read aloud.
Yes, absolutely. I became fully immersed in the story.
The audiobook format makes this story doubly chilling. I highly recommend it!
