Meet Ed Kennedy - cab driving prodigy, pathetic card player, and useless at sex. He lives in the suburbs; he shares coffee with his dog, the Doorman; and he's in nervous love with Audrey. His life is one of peaceful routine and incompetence - until he inadvertently stops a bank robbery. That's when the first Ace turns up. That's when Ed becomes the messenger. Chosen to care, he makes his way through town, helping and hurting (where necessary) until only one question remains: Who's behind Ed's mission?

The compelling new standalone novel from the Sunday Times number-one best-selling author of Unseen and Cop Town. With a missing girl in the news, Claire Scott can’t help but be reminded of her sister, who disappeared 20 years ago in a mystery that was never solved. But when Claire begins to learn the truth about her sister, nothing will ever be the same.

Thoroughly enjoyed this book. As always Karin gets your attention from the get go. A gripping, terrifying story. I love reading Karins books but sometimes wonder how she sleeps at night with these thoughts going on in her head. Glad she writes them down.

Rachel catches the same commuter train every morning. She knows it will wait at the same signal each time, overlooking a row of back gardens. She's even started to feel like she knows the people who live in one of the houses. Jess and Jason, she calls them. Their life - as she sees it - is perfect. If only Rachel could be that happy. And then she sees something shocking. It's only a minute until the train moves on, but it's enough. Now everything's changed.

I listen to books while walking my dog, often a couple of hours at a time. This book is easy to listen too and the story easy to follow. Frequently I'd be nearly home but wanted to hear what happened next, so would end up walking further (poor dog)
The plot it great and the characters all relatable. You like them and dislike them equally, literally shaking your head at some of the decision making of the main characters, you want to shake Rachel and Megan at times. Brilliant if at times frustrating read. Would recommend.

Renowned neurologist David Perlmutter, MD, blows the lid off a topic that's been buried in medical literature for far too long: carbs are destroying your brain. And not just unhealthy carbs, but even healthy ones like whole grains can cause dementia, ADHD, anxiety, chronic headaches, depression, and much more.

Why doesn't everyone know this information! Seriously, what an eye opening book. Whilst reading I spent an inordinate amount of time shaking my head in disbelief, my mouth open and feeling the breeze around my molars. The information is disturbing, well written and is easy to read and understand. It has certainly changed the way we eat in our home.
