When Zoe Walker sees her photo in the classifieds section of a London newspaper, she is determined to find out why it's there. There's no explanation, no website - just a grainy image and a phone number. She takes it home to her family, who are convinced it's just someone who looks like Zoe. But the next day the advert shows a photo of a different woman, and another the day after that.Is it a mistake? A coincidence? Or is someone keeping track of every move they make?

Tedious and repetitive So many words. So little story. The whining of the main character was endless and the plot idea silly

I was distracted by the music and sound effects at the end and start of each chapter. A silly feature. This should not occur. I persevered because it is a great book but would not have if I had not known the author. Don’t do it

Only Harry Bosch can uncover LA's darkest secrets in this new gripping thriller from global best seller Michael Connelly. Read by Titus Welliver, star of Bosch. 'What do you want me to do?' Bosch asked again. 'I want you to find someone for me,' Vance said. 'Someone who might not have ever existed.' Harry Bosch is working as a part-time detective in the town of San Fernando outside of Los Angeles when he gets the invitation to meet with the ageing aviation billionaire Whitney Vance.

The narrator's voice is unpleasant and the inconsistent accents extremely irritating. Did anyone hear this voice before going ahead with the recording?! I believe not. The story is infantile in its plotting and silly parallel stories that resolve in an annoyingly neat way. If only I had downloaded another book or better radio was available on my drive. Just awful
