Publisher's Summary

If the lies don't kill you, the truth will....

An electrifying, high-octane thrill ride, the new must-listen stand-alone from a Sunday Times best seller. You won't be able to tear yourself away! Dark, gritty and always at the edge of your seat, this unforgettable new outing from master craftsman Paul Finch will appeal to fans of Stuart MacBride, Mari Hannah and Alex Cross.

You can run....

A high-speed crash leaves a man and woman clinging to life. Neither of them carries ID. Their car has fake number plates. In their luggage: a huge amount of cash.

Who are they? What are they hiding?

And what were they running from?

You can hide....

DS Lynda Hagen, once a brilliant detective, gave it all up to raise her family.

But something about this case reignites a spark in her....

But you'll always sleep with...

What begins as an investigation soon becomes an obsession.

And it will lead her to a secret so dangerous that soon there will be nowhere left to hide.

...one eye open.

Poor narration

I’m normally a huge fan of Paul Finch books but this is badly let down by the flat narration.
In places its very stalled and comes across as if it’s the first time the narrator has encountered the text.
A potentially good story, sadly let down.

Extremely disappointing

Having read loads of Paul Finches books it’s a wonder this managed to get published.
Has the writing feel that it’s been written by a 12 year old and monotone reading just kills it completely.
Not recommend.

Poor Narration

I love Paul Finch as an author and this story was up to his usual high standard. Unfortunately I felt it was let down by poor narration.

Very disappointing compared to his other books

Where to start with this review? I absolutely loved Paul Finch's other books, so had no hesitation buying this one.

The story and plot felt very dull. The narration doesn't do this book any favours either, trying to add tension in places that just don't need it and therefore have the opposite effect.

I found myself getting increasingly annoyed and irritated with the lead detective. You know in those horror films when you're screaming at the TV for a character not to do something? Well it was a bit like that! Had to really persevere to finish it, hoping it would get better, but unfortunately not.

Sadly I'll be returning this book.

Great Listen

Couldn’t stop listening. Thoroughly exciting and enjoyable. It made the hairs on the back of my neck stand up.

Slow and dull

I love Paul Finch but this is this story has little to offer. It’s a shame but it’s not very good.

Dreadful narration

The narrator completely spoilt this book for me. Great shame as I usually like Paul Finch’s books.

A good strong fast moving story

Well narrated. A few clever twists
Not a Heck. But still very good
Liked the conclusion as well

Did not hold my attention at all.

Really all said in title above. Narrator left me cold just about fell asleep at times. Story did not go anywhere in fact kept thinking is something ever going to happen? Sorry but I have read many a better book be it by pages or audio.

A great read

I really enjoyed this book and couldn't wait to get in the car to hear a little more. There were a few twists to the tale and lots of energy put into the reading. I will be looking out for more of Paul's books
