    Description

    "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.

    Well done, Mr. Armitage!

    Thrilled that my hands-down favorite Audible narrator and one of my absolute favorite actors wrote a book, and that it’s such a great yarn! I finished it within two days—couldn’t stop listening. I also adore Nicola Walker—so glad she could be a part of this project. Congratulations, Mr. Armitage, on your new endeavor as an author. Hope to “read” more from you in the future.

    Thrilling thriller indeed.

    An amazing and interesting debut for Richard Armitage as an author.
    The story is captivating and the narration makes it even better. Every character is interesting and the situations make you doubt who and what you believe.
    Exactly what was promised.

    Congratulations!

    I make a point of participating in this new and wonderful journey of Richard Armitage participou and I have not regretted it, as the narrations bring us a fantastic and engaging story. Congratulations Audible, Richard Armitage e Nicola Walker. Bel Mendes, Porto Alegre/Brazil. 10/20/2022 (And look, I don't understand English very well, but I have an English friend -Philip de Lacy White - who helps me understand the text completely. Suggestion: could have a written text resource with translation in some languages ​​that would be read along with the audio (must include Portuguese of course!). Marking the narrated passages in the text (song app type when playing the songs chosen by the listener, but also with the option of choosing the language to be translated). If I'm already in love with the book and need help to listen, imagine putting together audio in English and reading in my mother tongue!!!)

    That was fabulous!! My only complaint is that Richard doesn’t currently have more books written. Please write and create another one. In the meantime, I’ll listen to it again and again.

    Richard Armitage writes a cracking good thriller

    This audiobook moves quickly and keeps the listener in suspense throughout. The characters are well-drawn for this genre, especially that of the heroine, Sarah, beautifully performed by Nicola Walker. Armitage does his customary good job as co-narrator, and Jane Perry shows off his writing talent and helps liven up the action. Let's have more from Mr Armitage!

    Clear your schedule; this draws you in!!

    The story has great twists and turns, and is perfectly descriptive. Not a word is wasted! It feels like you’re watching a film because the performances really energize your mind’s eye. (Hint to Hollywood: this should also be on screen…ASAP!) Can’t wait to see what Richard Armitage writes next!!

    Mesmerizing. Couldn’t put it down!

    Once I started I couldn’t stop listening. Intriguing story line. Beautifully performed. Loved how the story kept switching from Daniel to Sarah’s POV. Will be listing again!

    Now we know!

    Richard Armitage ist nicht nur ein talentierter Theater- und Filmschauspieler sowie Erzähler in Hörbüchern, sondern in seinem ersten Buch auch ein begabter Schriftsteller.
    Hier reist die an Alzheimer erkrankte Nobelpreisträgerin Sarah Collier mit ihrem Mann Daniel nach Genf. Dort nehmen sie an einer Konferenz des Österreichers Moritz Schiller teil (perfekt gesprochen mit österreichischem Akzent), der ein Gehirnforschungsinstitut (neurocell) führt. Er arbeitet u.a. an einem winzigen Gehirnimplantat, das seine Energie aus der Wärme des Blutstroms zieht.
    Wie immer ist Armitage als Sprecher differenziert, moduliert und sehr facettenreich, herausragend ist der russische Akzent des Sicherheitschefs Pavel. Auch Nicola Walker hat eine sehr angenehme Sprechstimme.
    Insgesamt ist der Thriller spannend und überraschend bis zum Ende, mit aktuellen Themen (Gehirnforschung, Sterbehilfe...) - sehr gut recherchierte, aktuelle und niveauvolle Unterhaltung! Dabei ist die Sprache des Krimis immer wieder überraschend poetisch, mit außergewöhnlichen Vergleichen und Bildern. Oft zeigt sich hier der präzise Blick des Autors auf die Natur. Außerdem erahnt man hinter der Handlung manchmal den Schriftsteller (in der dramatischen Skiabfahrt am Matterhorn?).
    Very well done Mr. Richard Armitage! Good luck for your further acting and writing!!

    Geneva - Kudos to a brilliant first!

    Richard Armitage cannot only act and perform on stage, on screen or in the audio studio - with Geneva he has proven masterful authorship! The plot has it all: suspense, empathy, u-turns and surprise, garnished with a scientific background and very apt locations, all meticulously and convincingly set. I have been totally absorbed and will relisten to grab more details! I am thrilled to hear and read more of this aspiring author! Kudos to the narration of Armitage, Nicola Walker and Jane Perry - a perfect team!
    Btw it would be lovely to have a printed or eBook edition in hands too!

    Fantastic first book written by Richard Armitage

    I loved the story and couldn't stop listening.
    Both readers have done such a fantastic job !
    I really suffered with the characters Sarah and her hubby Daniel throughout the whole time.
    I hope we might get some more audible book written and narrated by Richard Armitage.

    Spannend bis kurz vor dem Ende

    Ein spannendes und recht mitreissendens Buch, das "harmlos" anfängt und sich dann langsam und spannend entwickelt, Schade nur das Ende, da wird es dann recht unglubwürdig und ist unnötig effektheischerisch.

    Good book

    A good book and intersting story. Richard Armitage is a great narrator. As I am not a big fan of female narrators I have to say that the female narattors were not quite what I would have needed but I understand why the audio book was set up in this way. The story is interesting and something new which I realy liked. thank you Mr. Armitage for writing and narrating this audio book.

    Armitage can not only read

    but also write, it seems. Hadn't expected this to be so compelling.
    Maybe at some point things in the story appear a little predictable, and certainly Armitage seems to believe ultimately in the good intention of medical science a little too much, but that's just my personal opinion.
    I think while picking a very controversial subject and timidly attempting to raise sensitive questions about the moral of the pharmaceutical industry generally, yet the story doesn't really go a very long way towards that end.
    It's probably deliberate, and I do understand why someone would shy away from making a different point .
    Still on the whole it is a great crime story with interesting characters, some twists and a lot of action.
    I certainly enjoyed listening to it. As a narrator Armitage is beyond doubt, but also the female character of Sarah was very well performed.
    All in all definitely 100% recommendable.

    Great debut. Loved and enjoyed it!

    Richard Armitage überrascht und begeistert mich immer wieder.
    Er hat mich anfangs mit seinem hervorragenden Schauspiel- und Sprechertalent in den Bann gezogen.
    Trotzdem war ich zuerst etwas verhalten als ich sah er versucht sich nun auch als Buchauthor.
    Er hat mir aber gezeigt das er sogar ein Händchen als Schriftsteller hat. Spannend, überraschend, aber vorallem tolle Charaktere die einen in die Geschichte ziehen.
    Das er sein erstes Werk nun auch noch gemeinsam mit Nicola Walker gesprochen hat war absolut perfekt.
    Ein 9 Std Hörerlebnis. Ich bin begeistert.

    You did it. Amazing job Richard Armitage! Hopefully there will be more.

    I really enjoyed listening to the audio book - especially because I just love Richard Armitage's voice.
    The story was also very well written. It had a few twists and turns..some one might already be familiar with. Nevertheless, nice debut. Hoping to hear/read more novels from R. A.
