This story seems weird at times, with the reaction of the victims not quite believable, but then I know nothing about interrogation techniques and torture. If this is how one can manipulate people, then it's certainly frightening, taking people to extremes they would not have imagined possible. To me it still sounds a little over the top, but it's a good thriller.
I would have preferred the two characters to be read by two different voices. Sean Barrett reads the story very well, but to distinguish between the two, another voice would have been a good idea.

A thriller with a nice twist

This is a very good listen, with an unexpected twist, read very well by Joe Jameson. I would have liked the two plots to merge at some point, which was not the case, but it was still very thrilling. I guess we get to learn more about Angelface in the next book by Robotham.

This is the kind of thriller that will keep you going, so great stuff for a long ride in the car. On the other hand, you must not think about the characters too much, as at several points in the story the question crops us whether there would not have been a more logical reaction. But as thrillers go, and without digging too deep, this is a great listen.

Not the best of Pekkanen

If this is the best Pekkanen can write, then she had better stick to cooperation and write novels like "The Wife Between Us". This is the kind of flat, rosy story with a couple of problems and a happy end that I do not appreciate. Brilliantly read by Cassandra Campbell, but even her reading does not make this audio-book any better.

To my mind, and after having read quite a number of his books, Grisham is a guarantee for good entertainment and also for subjects that get you thinking. This is true as well for The Guardians. Gripping subject, great storyline, wonderfully read by Michael Beck, - what more can you want?

Lon-winded, slow-moving and NOT gripping

Interesting that the author would promise 'an absolutely gripping and heart-pounding psychological thriller', which she is obviously unable to deliver. A little more modesty would have been in order. The story is too slow-moving, the characters (especially Naomi) act in a way that seems so stupid it is unbelievable, i.e. unlikely. I gave up after about 4 hours of listening, desperate to find something more gripping.

Ich kenne das Buch, und wollte mir eine Freude machen, indem ich es hoeren -nicht lesen- wollte. Der Sprecher ist schon an sich gewohnheitsbeduerftig, ich finde die Stimme zu hoch und zu wenig melodisch. Aber wenn der Sprecher Stefan Zweigs franzoesische Zitate liest, vergeht dem Hoerer wirklich endgueltig die Lust zum Zuhoeren. Ich verstehe nicht, wie man, bei einem solchen Buch, das Franzoesich- und Englischkenntnisse erfordert, einen Sprecher aussuchen kann, der offensichtlich weder die eine noch die andere Sprache spricht, oder mit einem solchen fuerchterlichen Akzent, das man ihn mit dem Messer schneiden kann. Ich werde das Buch zurueckgeben, laenger als eine Stunde konnte ich nicht zuhoeren. Mein Tip: Kaufen Sie ein anderes Buch. Leider hat dieser Sprecher viele Buecher von Stefan Zweig gelesen.

The art of creating round characters ...

… is something Lisa Jewell has no knowledge of. Throughout this story, whose plot is rather strange and a little far-fetched, characters act in a way that does not seem to be consistent. Floyd, for example, does nothing that I would call 'bad' in this story, but is in the end depicted as a kind of villain with a bad aura (ugh!). To my mind he acts rather honorably throughout the story (except for killing Noelle in a rage, but that is the one thing that is totally credible, I felt like killing her as well). Laurel is never depicted as a very good-looking, very desirable woman, but is in the end described as such. Both Laurel and Paul turn out to be quite well off, but at the start money problems are mentioned. All this is not consistent. The author seems to twist the characters so as to fit her improbable story. On the whole, not a success.

A thriller in the best sense of the term, a book that you get addicted to because you want to know how things work out. This was a great listen, and performed very well by the three speakers/readers.

Thrilling and terrifying!

Another 'wonderful' Grisham, though 'wonderful' is not the best choice of adjective. Grisham strikes terror into the reader. He is still onto the question of the death penalty, and the danger of killing an innocent man. This is a great book. I was literally glued to my phone because I needed to keep listening. Read perfectly by Scott Sowers. Do not miss this one!
