I was excited for another thriller, but realised perhaps long form novels are not for me. By about half way I was beginning to be interested in the book, but it wasn’t particularly gripping. Once listening to it, I enjoyed the book, but I was never eager to start playing it again, and only would, because i needed something to listen to while driving.

Glad to be introduced to some of the concepts, I feel more intelligent having listened to it.

When a paragraph in an evening newspaper reveals a decades-old tragedy, most readers barely give it a glance. But for three strangers, it's impossible to ignore. For one woman it's a reminder of the worst thing that ever happened to her. For another it's the dangerous possibility that her darkest secret is about to be discovered. And for a third, a journalist, it's the first clue in a hunt to uncover the truth. The Child's story will be told.

The ending was quite good, but I had picked it early on and then forgotten about it.

The book was slow and the events taking place during the book weren’t particularly interesting, however the overall story arch was good. I enjoyed the overall storyline and enjoy the moment where I thought ‘ooohhh I know what’s happened’ and was then proven right.

Not as good as The Silent Child, but was ok and fairly easy to follow and listen to
