Publisher's Summary

Discover the spellbinding mystery from the Richard & Judy best-selling author of The Glass House.

When four sisters arrive at Applecote Manor to spend the summer, all is clearly not well. They find their aunt and uncle still reeling from the disappearance of their only daughter, five years before. No one seems any closer to finding out the truth. Why did Audrey vanish? Who is keeping her fate secret?

As the sisters are lured into the mystery of their missing cousin, the stifling summer takes a shocking, deadly turn.

One which will leave blood on their hands, and put another girl in danger decades later....

Not for the normal of hearing

Probably very good if you are a dog with their superior hearing. This audio book is recorded at such a low volume that even at full volume you need to be in a place with no background sound. Try to listen in a car, going for a walk and you have to strain to hear it. This seems to be becoming more common with audible recordings which if check with monitoring software you will find are recorded at a level many decibels below where any clipping would occur. There is nothing wrong with the recordings except this. Using headphone boosters you can get acceptable levels of volume. But why should you need this, I don't want to have to have extra bits and cables to carry around when it would be the simplest thing in the world deliver the books with sensible volume levels. I can do it with a piece of consumer software costing £50. There are multiple complaints about this on the internet yet Audible does nothing.

Enthralling

As a child of the fifties I was entranced by the story. The book is wonderfully written and holds the attention of the reader from beginning to end. I really enjoyed the whole narrative.

Oh My Word - Such a let down

I simply cannot finish this book. Such a good idea for a story, but so badly executed. No depth to the characters at all. Couldn't visualise any of them. And as for the narration - just dreadful. Read in a staccato fashion as though Karen Cass was firing verbal bullets. Waste of my monthly credit and the time I spent trying to listen to it.

Weak characters no female role models

Very weak female characters, all pathetically whiny and flimsy. The modern day Jesse interested in nothing but babies, a spoilt housewife with no idea of how the mortgage gets paid. No role models here. No substance around many characters except very cliche one liners. The mother working in Morocco in 1959 even though she has no qualifications other than lying on a chaise. Completely ungrounded in a convincing reality, the story could have been so much more interesting and dimensional. Yet another nonsense missing child story that is all too fashionable at the moment, there are loads of them just the same on audible with no attempt at originality. Just a stream of lovely words about meadows and boys.

Good story

It took me three attempts to start this. The first two attempts I couldn't get into it, or get to know who was who. I was glad I persevered because it turned into a very good story.

Quiet but good.

I really enjoyed the story but struggled to hear it a lot! There’s no point in listening to it in the car - unless through headphones turned all the way up - as it’s really quiet!

Disappointing and predictable. A real let down

Struggled to finish it but persevered as I'd used up a credit on it. The modern day heroine Jesse was absolutely turgid! It was dull and predictable.

turgid stuff

time shifting was irritating. characters were ill defined, I could not care less about any of them. no pace, no imagination, poor plot and no intelligent plot.
