Fabulous debut!

Where does I Let You Go rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?

One of the best.

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

Yes, I found it difficult to put it down.

Any additional comments?

I am very much looking forward to more from this author. This book was highly compelling. Intelligently written, with great characters and rich context that gave me a real sense of being there with Jenna. Despite being brutal in its content, it was penned with a light touch. Highly recommended.

Absolutely brilliant!

WOW! One of the best psychological thrillers I have listened to in ages. I can't actually believe this is a debut novel. The twists and surprises were jaw dropping. My emotions were all over the place with this one. I am not even going to go into any description of what the story is about for fear of spoiling it. Very cleverly written, the characters were all really excellent.
David Thorpe and Julie Barrie were both fantastic. Julie Barrie had me close to tears several times, while David Thorpe's sinister, evil voice felt truly threatening.
Loved it! I would give it more than 5 stars if I could.
