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.

Hard hitting subject, incredible story

If you could sum up White Is the Coldest Colour in three words, what would they be?

Freightening, Shocking, Upsetting


Who was your favorite character and why?

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.


What about Jake Urry’s performance did you like?

Jake's inflections whilst speaking as the Doctor convey this man's brutal nature. Spot on!


If you made a film of this book, what would be the tag line be?

When the ring calls your name.


Any additional comments?

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.

Appallingly realistic.

Where does White Is the Coldest Colour rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?

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


Who was your favorite character and why?

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.


What about Jake Urry’s performance did you like?

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.


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

Yes, absolutely. I became fully immersed in the story.


Any additional comments?

The audiobook format makes this story doubly chilling. I highly recommend it!
