Publisher's Summary

"An outstanding debut - ingenious, fast-paced and unpredictable." (Harlan Coben)

"Geneva is one of the best thrillers I've ever read. And I've read quite a few." (A J Finn)

How far would you go for someone you love?

Nobel Prize-winning scientist Sarah Collier has taken a step back from work to spend more time with her family. Movie nights with her husband Daniel and their daughter Maddie are a welcome respite from the scrutiny of the world’s press. As much as it hurts, it’s good to be able to see her father more too. He’s suffering from Alzheimer’s and needs special care.

Sarah has started to show tell-tale signs of the disease too. She’s been experiencing blackouts and memory loss. It’s early days but she must face the possibility that she won’t be there to see her daughter grow up. Daniel, a neuroscientist himself, is doing his best to be supportive but she already knows that she will have to be the strong one. For all of them.

So when Sarah is invited to be the guest of honour at a prestigious biotech conference in Geneva she declines, wanting to stay out of the public eye – that is until Daniel shows her the kind of work that the enigmatic Mauritz Schiller has been developing.

Flown first class to the spectacular alpine city and housed in a luxury hotel, Sarah and Daniel are thrust back into the spotlight. As they try to shut out the noise of the public media storm, in private Sarah is struggling with her escalating symptoms. And the true extent of what Schiller has achieved is a revelation. This is technology that could change medicine forever. More than that, it could save Sarah’s life.

But technology so valuable attracts all kinds of interest. Wealthy investors are circling, controversial blogger Terri Landau is all over the story, and someone close to Schiller seems bent on taking advantage of the situation for themselves. Sarah feels threatened and does not know who to trust – including herself. Far from being her lifeline Schiller's technology may be her undoing.

As events spiral out of control Sarah and Daniel are faced with the ultimate question: how far would you go for someone you love?

An unmissable debut thriller written and narrated by Richard Armitage, co-narrated by Nicola Walker and Jane Perry.

This book contains scenes pertaining to dementia that some listeners may find distressing.

In a different league!

I’m annoyed at myself for giving other books I’ve listened to 5 stars as they didn’t come close to this one. By far the best performances, especially Nicola Walker (who’s fabulous in everything she does). The storyline was tense, gripping and intelligent. It always takes me ages to spend a credit and this one was a gamble which paid off. Absolutely loved it.

Absolutely brilliant

I didn’t think that I could admire Richard Armitage more than I already do, but this is one of the best stories I have listened to. Completely enthralled from start to finish. Highly recommend

Brilliant!!!

I rarely actually write a review but this definitely deserves it. I hoped for an interesting read, and I was rapt with the story, characters and immersion in the experiences of the characters. The performances one would expect of an actor such as Richard Armitage were as expected, fabulous. Highly recommend, and a wonderful debut book for this awesome actor.

Lots of twists and turns.

Loved this. Listened to it in one sitting & after only recently binge watching Spooks, & having my heart ripped out when Ruth died, it was wonderful to hear Nicola Walkers voice again. If I could personally request Richard Armitage to narrate my life, I would; his voice is perfection. Geneva is a great mystery/thriller. Unpredictable, performed brilliantly, & hard to turn off. Very impressed.

Very weak plot.

Relied on ridiculous assumptions and incredulous plot. Finished it but from about half way became weaker and more annoying.

unbelievable and disappointing in the end

There were just to many narrow escapes and unbelievable scenarios to make this novel satisfying.

Absolutely gripping

I love this book. From the first word to the last I was hooked. The story is gripping and the characters were wonderfully brought to life by both the description and fantastic narration. Geneva is one of the best books I have listened to on Audible. I highly recommend. I cannot wait for the next book from the amazing Richard Armitage.
