Laura Fletcher returns from an Italian vacation to find her home under siege by paparazzi. Is she shocked? Yes. But is she distraught? Not exactly. Chief Inspector Tom Douglas reveals his suspicions that Hugo’s killer is female. The deeper Douglas digs, the more sordid details he uncovers. And yet nothing compares to the secret Laura guards, a secret that could bring the guilty to justice - or destroy an innocent life forever.

Very poor narration
What did you like best about Only the Innocent? What did you like least?
The story developed and gradually became compelling. Sadly the narration ruined the experience for me.
What was one of the most memorable moments of Only the Innocent?
When Laura goes into the attic and finds the red hair wigs in the case, discovering that two are missing.
How could the performance have been better?
A different narrator.
If this book were a film would you go see it?
Not now that i know the story.
Any additional comments?
I will steer clear of any books narrated by Peter Wickam

This is a good book and one that keeps you listening. The narrator is very good in the male parts, however the female voices were reminiscent of Hinge and Bracket!!! Peter Wickham is an excellent story teller but he should stick to the masculine.

Ok, classic detective crime novel
Accidently I started with Sleep Tight (Part five), one of the best books I’ve come across in this genre.
This turned out to be a disappointment lacking the twists and unanswered questions that made Sleep Tight so brilliant.
I do really like the main characters so I will soldier on and listen to DI Tom also with the relief that the storyteller has been switched. Making Tom sound like a man in his sixties and Laura like an old lady in her youth I believe the narrator did not do them (or the book) justice at all.

What disappointed you about Only the Innocent?
I could not enjoy the story due to the poor editing. I had to discard listening in the early part .A character was described as 'looking out a window while walking around a room doing various things.' All that was said in one sentence.Aside from the visual image of a buffoon walking into furniture trying to do things with their head cranked around looking out a window, I''m supposed to believe that an intelligent character was doing that. A good editor would have pointed out the wisdom of separating the actions. When I struck the second such poorly constructed sentence that even a program such as Grammarly would have pointed out was clumsy construction, I returned the book for a refund.
What was most disappointing about Rachel Abbott’s story?
What reaction did this book spark in you? Anger, sadness, disappointment?
