Publisher's Summary

He'll make sure she never wants to leave.... 

Holly never thought she'd move back to her hometown, but then something terrible happened. She doesn't know if she can recover. But she knows she can never tell another soul. 

People say her neighbour, David, is 'different'. He doesn't go out much, and never after dark. But in David, Holly finds just what she needs: a friend. Someone who's always there. 

No-one knows Holly's secret or where she lives. She has left the past behind. She is sure of it. So why does she feel as though she's in terrible danger?

Beginning was slow but picked up

At first I thought it would be a dud. Glad I didn't stop listening. The twists and turns really threw me and the ending was awesome. A good book all around. I'm glad I bought it. 😀😀

Good not great

I've read all of K L Slaters books. While not on the level of some of her past books it's still not bad. Took me awhile to get into this one but it picks up about halfway in. Not bad but she has better ones.

Free is still too much

*SPOILER-ISH REVIEW*



I don't mind reading stories about bad people, but the writing, the plot, and the dialogue need to be spot on. And they need to have self-awareness of their own character.
This book was pretty much all bad people with NO self-awareness, bad dialogue, and a long, boring, drawn out story. I think David was written to be somewhere on the spectrum. Can't be sure as he was also a stalker with delusions and anger issues. Holly was a manipulative psycho. She was also an unreliable narrator but whether or not she knows the truth about Evan is unclear, even at the end(even though a quick Google search could've shown her the truth).
I won't be reading this author again. I'm just not into her style, which is to create a "mysterious" past which is revealed little by little in flashbacks.

meh...haven't we heard this ending before?

Promising and interesting right up til the end! the characters are VERY similar to characters from another of Slaters books and this ending is very similar as well! So disappointed in the ending and some missed opportunities to build suspense with all those suspects on the peripheral.

Slow confusing

I have read most of this authors books and I usually love them but this one was very confusing it would go back in time and you would get computers because they wouldn’t tell you you were going back in time it was very slow until the very last two hours of the book I do not recommend

very far fetched!

love the narrator (who I think does all of the books by Slater). This book starts off really engrossing. lots of good character development and really suspenseful situations... then the last 30% is, frankly, really unbelievable. i usually really like Slater's books, and I know some of her others have quite far fetched endings, but this one was just... too much. To the extent that I completely lost interest.

Terrible!!!

The only good thing about this title is that I now know I can trust the reviews. The amount of stars are not consistent with the feedback because I didn’t think 4 stars was bad. I failed to read the reviews until the middle of this book - my bad. Nothing slightly significant happened until around chapter 52. The story was all over the place. Didn’t care about the characters. Maybe 1 character is like able. Some events happened out of nowhere. The end is so unbelievable. You’ll say “really?” Extremely disappointed. I’ve never selected a book by this author, so I’m now skeptical about selecting another. I do love Lucy, the narrator, and will always be a fan of her work!

Umm what

The performance was good, but the story was strange. Zero likable characters, which I think was the point. Just felt like a waste of time once it was all over.

Debating to ask for my money back on this one. At this point I don't think I'll even finish the book

A Drama That Doesn't Quite Deliver

The thriller genre is a fairly broad church containing everything from Jack Reacher's famously high body counts to the kind of books that K L Slater writes. These Slater books are more well-written dramas than outright thrillers and this one more than most. I found it engaging and enjoyable even though it is an extremely patient and low key setup. It is of course extremely well read by Lucy Price-Lewis who is one of the best narrators in the business for these kinds of books. There is a lot to like here.

Unfortunately, after the slow patient build up the last hour or so of the book suddenly goes a bit crazy. Although several of the key characters are built up for potentially odd behaviour it all just loses cohesion in a frantic final denouement that just didn't feel fitting. There were just too many convenient examples of characters dialling up the unexpected.

I will stick with this author, she has a quality of writing about her and an eye for making relatively mundane situations genuinely engaging but I felt oddly dissatisfied at the end of it all. She just didn't convince me like she has in the past.

The Visitor

This was OK crime thriller, but rather unbelievable and far fetched at times. The character of David was written as though he was autistic, but it was never explicitly stated.

Gripping Psychological thriller

very well read by the narrator and never expected the ending. I have enjoyed all of K.L. Slaters books and can't wait to read any future books.

An okay listen

I have listened to a few other KL Slater books and really loved them so was looking forward to this one, however to be honest it was a bit disappointing. Not as many twists and turns as her other stories and quite predictable

Dull, dull.....dull!

Very strange. Long and drawn out. Really hard to follow because nothing really happening. Stuck with it on the assumption something had to happen soon.....but alas it didn't. Dull, dull, dull. Really sorry to the author but not for me.

Disappointing

There was so much scope for this story to expand, it just seemed like the bare bones. I like the author normally so was disappointed, I was waiting chapter by chapter for it to start properly. All the way through I was expecting more, in all the reader was good but the plot was poor. Sadly I did not enjoy it.

Ok

An ok read, not the best book I have read, but It is an easy book to listen and relax to without having to think too much, just a little slow and didn’t quite draw me and keep me up all night. Twist at the end was not expected! :)

Very Intriguing

Well worth listening and I think this is the best book I’ve listened to so far by
K L Slater. The suspense made me want to keep listening without interruption and I wasn’t sure who the culprit was right up to the end. I’m looking forward to another book by this author.
