Publisher's Summary

“I devoured this novel in a single sitting. The Thin Place will stay with you long after you turn the final page.” - Clare Mackintosh, bestselling author of After the End

She has to know the truth about Overtoun Estate, but there is a reason it has stayed buried for so long.

When journalist Ava Brent decides to investigate the dark mystery of Overtoun Estate - a ‘thin place’, steeped in myth - she has no idea how dangerous this story will be for her.

Overtoun looms over the town, watching, waiting: the locals fearful of the strange building and the secrets it keeps. When Ava starts to ask questions, the warm welcome she first receives turns to a cold shoulder. And before she knows it, Ava is caught in the house’s grasp too.

After she discovers the history of a sick young girl who lived there, she starts to understand the sadness that shrouds it. But when she finds an ominous old message etched into a windowsill, she is forced to wonder - what horrors is the house protecting? And what will it cost her to find out?

With her own first child on the way, Ava knows she should stay away. But even as her life starts to unravel, and she receives chilling threats, the house and the bridge keep pulling her back...

The story was ok but the narration is appalling

I’m finding myself wishing that I’d returned this title. The narration is awful. The narrators speech patterns sound like a marks and spencer advert rather than an actor reading a book. You can hear the smile in her voice throughout at the most inappropriate places. You literally have that drummed out of you in the first week of drama school. It’s really poor. The pronunciation of a lot of the dialogue is really poor as are the stresses of most words in most sentences. Her RP is appalling and I can’t work out why she gives a child who’s parents speak RP and who has little or no contact with anyone else apart from them a broad Scottish accent. It makes no sense. It feels as if she picked up the book 2 seconds before recording and dashed through it without thinking. Really shocking that she has work as a narrator. The book itself was ok. I reallu enjoyed the first half and stayed with it hoping that it would become exciting but it fell a bit flat. There’s no suspense and it’s not chilling in any way. The blurb had suggested otherwise so I was expecting more. I wouldn’t recommend it to anyone but had the narration been competent it would have been a good enough book to listen to even though it didn’t set my world on fire.
