Well paced story

Nice psychological thriller narrated with 2 voices - an English woman and a Finnish woman. The Finnish accent didn't feel quite right to me and I spend 4 months a year in Finland and am married to a Finn. But it was a good listen and would read more from this author.

I gave up on the last few hours because I was so fed up the style of presentation, it was dull and the wording so pedantic.
Not up to Audible's usual standard.
