Publisher's Summary

The gripping new Audible Original from queen of suspense K. L. Slater.

When the call came it seemed like the answer to my prayers.

My career as a voice actor had been over for months and me and my little girl Scarlet were living back at my mum’s place. I felt like a failure professionally—and with Scarlet having problems at school, as a parent as well.

So, when I was asked to narrate a new book by disappeared novelist Philippa Roberts I jumped at the chance, even if it meant leaving Scarlet with my ex, Hugo, for a few weeks. Hugo, with his perfect new home and his perfect new girlfriend Saskia.

But this isn’t a dream come true. It’s a nightmare.

There’s something hidden in the pages of this book, I’m sure of it. Some clue to Philippa’s disappearance. And I don’t feel safe. I’m being watched. My room has been searched. Saskia has been calling me in tears. If I don’t find answers fast I’ll lose more than my second chance.

I’ll lose my daughter.

A breath-taking new thriller from the number one author of The Marriage and The Widow. If you like Gone Girl, The Girl on The Train and The Wife Between Us then you will love The Narrator.

really bad ending

This book had a fairly compelling storyline. However, when it got to the end it seemed like it was using a cute method for saying what happened. This totally didn't work for me. throughout the book there was highly complex explanations of why things were done. at the end it just drops like a thud without the context that's needed.

Love but it's a production issue!

Love, love, love KL Slater. Big fan! Another great book. Whoever is managing the audio production, please reduce the volume on the shouting and the shrieking fake child voices. People listen with headphones. It's too loud and totally distracting.

Maybe a Little Too Thrilling???

i realized after the first few chapters of K.L. Slater's The Narrator, it became just a thriller about 2 different women being menaced by psycho creeps. It was well-written in terms of the writing style and plot, but I decided real life was hard enough without bringing something icky like this into it. Not my cup of tea. i could not finish it. This is my first bad review of anything I've purchased on kindle/audible, but of course others may not be disturbed by the content. i was definitely pulled in by the good writing; however, as the creep factor rose, I decided not to finish it. i'm very disappointed.

Interesting plot, definitely a fun read.

For me the narrators really made this book shine. I'm a big fan of Clare Corbett. Bravo!

I loved it

the narrator was incredible and there were twists till the end. I could not hold back tears of emotion at the final scene. I really enjoy K. L. Slater's work.
