    Description

    Brought to you by Penguin.

    From the No.1 best-selling author of Then She Was Gone.

    Shortlisted for the Audible Sounds of Crime Award 2020.

    In a large house in London’s fashionable Chelsea, a baby is awake in her cot. Well-fed and cared for, she is happily waiting for someone to pick her up.

    In the kitchen lie three decomposing corpses. Close to them is a hastily scrawled note.

    They’ve been dead for several days.

    Who has been looking after the baby?

    And where did they go?

    Two entangled families.

    A house with the darkest of secrets.

    A compulsive new thriller from Lisa Jewell.

    enjoyable

    Not really what I was expecting from the description but it was one of those you cannot put down until the end. Full of twists and turns. Highly recommend the read. Great performances and well written.

    Absolutely brilliant

    English is my second langage, but I got very fascinated by this story, which, as incredible as it is, nonetheless remains in fact extremely plausible, to the point that it could be based on real facts, and may be it was somewhere. I highly recommend this work which is not only radiating tension, but also very sensitivity treated and with a great deal of tact, despite tackling delicate subjects such as child abuse and adolescent homosexuality. Awe-inspiring writing and reading down the line, I highly recommend!

    Disappointing

    Audible has been recommending that I listen to this book for ages, and I’m really disappointed. Plot was flimsy and unlikely and I found it difficult to warm to any of the characters. Nevertheless I did finish this book, and I think it could make a nice ‘beach’ listen.

    Not bad

    Very dark story, very nice told. I just would like one more twist at the end.

    Slow start but damn does it pick up!!!

    This book is seriously creepy, not in the bloody murder or ghosts and hauntings every where kinda way. But in the, don't let strangers into your house and let them take over your family and your life kind of way. JESUS!!!

    The writing was amazing. The way the audiobook was produced was amazing. I loved that we had three different narrators for the three POV's. It made it super easy to tell them apart, to just have a different voice to all the characters. I LOVED it.

    The three main characters. In the beginning I was super confused but damn, all these twists, turns, and revelations. Get over the slow part of the book and this book picks up and throws some crazy shit at you. I LOVED IT.

    La vie est un long fleuve tranquille

    Three points of view, flowing beautifully together, great audio narration. But I never really connected with the characters. What remains is appreciation and a slight disappointment. The author has outdone herself in extracting the last drop from a limiting story.

    Good book

    This was a good book to listen,good story and storytelling from three persons. Only thing i didnt like was the David person and his influence on the family on everybody,the illness in his behaviour and how one person can destroy childrenhood ,life of other people..
    Overall good book.

    Compelling story that lost its edge in the finale

    All in all this was a very compelling story, lots of twists and shocking events, unforeseen revelations. The strongest aspect surely was the character creation. The author created very compelling characters that you couldn't help but root for, although in the end it was difficult to be okay with all their decisions and views on life. The story had a nice pace to it, left the reader curious at all times. Only thing I couldn't really enjoy was the ending. It felt rushed and all the complications and potential conflicts seemed solved within an instant, although there was a lot of time spent to build them up. It's weird to say but to me, the ending was too happy? Don't get me wrong, all of the characters deserve to be happy and find peace, just, I would have thought some of them would need more time to be fine again?

    fabulous!

    At the begining I had a little trouble connecting the story and all the characters, but it came up to be a great book. I loved it. It is very original, different. The speakers are amazing! Now I want to hear/read more about Lisa Jewels.
