Publisher's Summary

An explosive, unforgettable thriller from Jo Spain!

For one week, everything in Luke Miller's life is perfect. Surprised with a belated honeymoon by his wife, Rose, he's had seven days with her in a Caribbean paradise. It's more than he ever thought he'd deserve.

But as they pack their bags, Rose breaks down, confessing that on the day they left London, a violent man from her past tracked her down and broke into their home. He wasn't expecting her to fight back. And, in her terror, Rose killed him. Now there's a dead body in Luke's apartment, and only one person he can think to turn to.

Mickey Sheils never expected to hear from Luke again, not after he disappeared the first time. Luke knows Mickey can't deny a woman who needs help, so she promises she'll deal with things - she'll make sure Rose doesn't have to keep running. 

But it turns out, some lies are too big to run from.

Gripping story. Not easy to guess

I enjoyed this story making many assumptions but not always right. Binge listening at it’s best

Very intriguing book

I thoroughly enjoyed the characters, the plot, surprises during the story. The narrator is excellent and should be thanked.

Loved it.

Good twists here and there. The characters were mostly believable (although whiny to start with, which I'm glad didn't last). Was a good read and the narration was great.

COULDN'T STOP LISTENING!!

This was my first Jo Spain audio and I loved it. I couldn't stop listening. Had me hooked from start to finish and definitely worth listening to.
Narration was great with so many accents.
Thanks Jo Spain

Disappointed

I have loved and looked forward to listening to all Jo Spain’s books but I personally didn’t connect with this one as much. Loved the idea of it but something didn’t make me want to keep listening.
I did finish it, but would not recommend to a friend which is what a review really comes down to.

Disappointed - not at same level as previous books

I was so excited and had been waiting for Jo’s latest book for months and I bought it the minute it came out but it was a let down. Some of the accents were awful and the story was ok but it just didn’t all come together and enthrall me in any way.

Good but not great

Not Jo's best book, but it's still enjoyable. I liked the twists and turns, I wanted to keep listening. The narrator was great with the exception of Lukes voice, it'was really hard to listen to. The ending was slightly predictable.

A bit long drawn out

The storyline was really good, but I felt it was longer than necessary… the narration was fine but the male voices I found really irritating

Didn’t enjoy this at all

Really wanted to like this as have enjoyed other books by this author. But I didn’t and wish I’d given up part way through as it didn’t get better. Didn’t like the narrator or the story. So many cliches.

Big disappointment

The plot was far-fetched and the story just wasn’t as good as Jo Spains other books (which I have really enjoyed). Even the usually excellent narration by Aoife McMahon was wooden for several of the male characters including Luke.

Tedious

I’m afraid I just didn’t enjoy this, it was a bit of a chore to listen to. I really struggles with the narration, the accents were badly maintained and distracting. I thought the story was weak, the characters not developed enough to care about, I stuck with it as I’d spent a credit on it but it was a trudge to get to the end.
