Publisher's Summary

The Trap by Melanie Raabe is set and ready to spring.
I know who killed my sister.
I wrote this novel for him.
Twelve years ago Linda's sister, Anna, was murdered. Her killer was never caught, but Linda saw him. Now, all these years on, she's just seen him again. On TV.
He has since become a well-known reporter, and Linda - a famous novelist and infamous recluse - knows no one will believe her if she accuses him, so she does the only thing she can think of: she writes a thriller about a woman who is murdered, her killer never caught. When the book is published, she agrees to give just one media interview. At home. To the one person who knows more about the case than she does.
He knows what happened that night, and she wrote a book about it, but when the doorbell rings neither of them can be sure how the story will end.

What did you like best about The Trap? What did you like least?

It was quite intriguing, but was sort of a book within a book and got a bit confusing at some points.She would be telling the tale in the first person, but next thing it turns out that what she was saying was happening was just her imagination - then she would relate what was really happening, but all the while I was wondering if it was another of her imaginings or dreams. She goes off on a tangent quite a lot and talks a load of rubbish. I wasn't interested in the main character at all I found her to be boring

What was the most interesting aspect of this story? The least interesting?

The meeting with the journalist was the best part of the book. The least interesting was her endless descriptions. By the end, I really didn't care what the ending was going to be!

Would you listen to another book narrated by Julie Teal?

I don't think so

If this book were a film would you go see it?
