Publisher's Summary

An absolutely gripping crime thriller with a jaw-dropping twist

Amber applies a dash of red lipstick and checks herself out in the mirror before heading out on a date. ‘Don’t wait up!’ she calls to her housemates as she leaves. But Amber never returns home that night. Amber Slater is never seen again. 

The last person to see Amber was her housemate. He remembers everything she was wearing that night. He watched her leave. He listened to every word of her phone conversation with her friend before she left. He knows more about Amber’s movements than anyone. 

At university, she is well-liked by her fellow students and teachers. Her tutor’s voice shakes when he is questioned by the police. Some say he and Amber were very close. Too close. Some say his wife had just found out about their relationship. 

The manager at the restaurant where Amber was supposed to eat that night says she didn’t show up. Yet the chef at the restaurant is overly chatty about her. He wasn’t working that night. He wasn’t answering his phone. Nobody knows where he was when Amber went missing. 

Rumours begin to circulate about Amber, it seems that everyone has a story to tell. But when the young girl’s lifeless body is found in a local park, with her blue lips glued shut, the gossip suddenly goes quiet. As the police trace the last few hours of Amber’s life, it seems that the girl simply vanished on her way to catch her bus. And when another woman goes missing in the dead of night, it’s a race against time to find her before she too is silenced forever. 

Fans of Angela Marsons, Cara Hunter, and Clare Mackintosh will love The Broken Ones.

Like nails on a blackboard

The stories are very good, but the screeching voice of Kapur makes me cringe. It almost makes me wish she would be eliminated.

Another fab story!

Another fab story written by Carla Kovach, I just love the DI Gina Harte series, they are such great stories and keep on getting better. I feel like I personally know Gina and all her team.

And a massive shout out to Alison Campbell who never ceases to amaze me with her brilliant narration, I don’t know how she does all those different voices.

I didn’t want this book to end as I’ve got to wait until the next book now 🥲😃

Overall enjoyable.

Ok story but maybe I wasn’t listening properly as when the killer was revealed I wasn’t sure who they were in the story! Also the tag line states a shocking twist. I didn’t notice that either. All in all though an ok listen but the narration outside of the narrators normal voice was sometimes off putting.
