This little story was really good. I listened to it through Audible Australia and will be recommending it to my friends.

Well done, now I'm ready for the next.

I read this as an Editor's Extra from Audible Australia. It was my first read from this author and didn't disappoint. The narrator was very good, especially with so many male characters. I might suggest that other members get it while the offer stands.

I do so enjoy this series

I devoured this title in less than a week, partly because it is a shortish novel and partly because it is so well narrated that I don't need to go over parts. I really enjoy this series and await the next part of the story.

Well read by the author

I read this as an Editor's Extra from Audible Australia. I don't read much non-fiction and so getting a three-star review is actually very good. I really appreciated Jon adding comment for the audiobook listeners when there was a picture that added to the reading. I think that this book is probably better when listened to rather than read.

A well-narrated psychological thriller

I read this as a Free-to-members audiobook from Audible Australia. It was a well-paced story, that I found a little predictable, but I enjoy how authors work these things together and there was a nice unforeseen twist at the end. The narration was very well done with phone conversations and police radio chatter adding colour. I probably won't read another by this author, unless it is free too of course.

So who was it?

I'm neither an armchair sleuth, nor a non-fiction reader, nor an American, but this was good. It is well worth the listen if you are any one of those things. I am off to Google "Golden State Killer" to find out who was arrested in the end.

Having two narrators was good.

I read this as an audiobook and it was enhanced by having two narrators. I nearly ditched it about 2/3 of the way through, but I don't DNF very often and the resolution was fair. A good "between books" book.

A good Outback story.

This Audible Australia Editor's Extra was a good read. It was fast-paced for the most part with an ever-developing story. At one hour from the end, I wondered what might still happen and saw red herrings everywhere. It is no spoiler to say that at the end there was a shower of rain. Enjoy.

Really good modern lit.

I really enjoyed this Australian story. It had just a little bit of morality in it. I don't know how real it is, but it is a good reminder to not always take everything at face value. It was very well performed and narrated.

A story of our time.

What a cool story. I could really imagine something like this happening. I hope that lots of people read it before it loses its timeliness. I will recommend it to my friends.
