Summary

If you refuse to believe me, I will no longer consider you my son...
Daniel believed that his parents were enjoying a peaceful retirement on a remote farm in Sweden, the country of his mother's birth. But with a single phone call, everything changes.
Your mother... she's not well, his father tells him. She's been imagining things - terrible, terrible things. In fact, she has been committed to a mental hospital.
Before Daniel can board a plane to Sweden, his mother calls: Everything that man has told you is a lie. I'm not mad... I need the police... Meet me at Heathrow.
Daniel is immediately caught between his parents - whom to believe, whom to trust? He becomes his mother's unwilling judge and jury. Presented with a horrific crime, a conspiracy that implicates his own father, Daniel must examine the evidence and decide for himself: Who is telling the truth? And he has secrets of his own that for too long he has kept hidden...

Gripping and unusual...

I'm only half-way through and I'm totally gripped by this novel! It's suspenseful and intelligent, and if it continues like this it will be one of my favourite audiobooks. The performances are brilliant too. Got to get back to it!

Unpredictable and absorbing psychological thriller

This book is set partly in London, but the mystery unfolds in a remote rural location in Sweden. It is a very absorbing listen, a two handed narration with many unexpected twists. The descriptive writing is skilful, creating a claustrophobic and uneasy backdrop to the narrative. The characters are distinctive and the plot is clever - it is rarely clear what is real and what imagined.
The voices are excellent and believable, - a really important factor in a book about credibility and doubt.
