Summary

Haley McWaid never gave her parents a moment's worry. Until one morning, her mother wakes to find that her 17-year-old daughter didn't come home the night before.

The community is stunned by her loss. Three months pass without a word, and everyone assumes the worst.

Wendy Tynes is a reporter on a mission: to identify and bring down sexual predators. Her latest target is a social worker known as a friend to troubled teens.

But Wendy soon realises she can't trust her own instincts - or the motives of the people around her - and that this story is more twisted than she could have imagined....

Book written in 2010, and it shows!

This book was written in 2010, but they have recorded it in 2021. Not sure why they have bothered. The story itself is okay, goes quite slow in parts and drifts into off track section where I found myself muttering ‘get on with it’. But the worst thing about this book was the general level of sexist narrative, beautiful reporters, floozies, description of young women coming onto men, t***y bars. I wanted to find out what happened but felt quite yucky throughout whilst listening. Wasn’t worth re-recording. Hope Harlan Coben has moved on from this kind of world view as his stories are usually great!

Truly Dreadfuk

A tedious & boring story with clunky dialogue & simplistic descriptions narrated by an annoying voice that almost lapses into baby talk at times. Save your money for something much better.

I couldnt get on with the narrator.

Sometimes a narrator is so annoying that you cant concentrate on the story properly. This was my experience with this book. I spent half the time thinking "I could do much better than this!"

had to stop listening

I could not even finish the first chapter as the narrators voice and tone were like nails on a chalk board for me.

Awful voice, but the book was quite good

The narrator's voice was grating, sarcastic, screamy, often all at once. I struggled through (on my second try) as I like Harlan Coben books. Maybe someone needs to come up with software to muffle people like her. How she got the job, I cannot fathom. I felt relieved to get to the end.

Disappointing

Normally love Harlan Coben books but found this one quite difficult. The reader was exceptionally annoying. The main character very irritating.

Read it rather than listen to it

Great sorry, love Harlan Coben books, thought I’d try an audible as I’ve no time to read just now. Absolutely gutted by the narration. Read as if it’s a teen story with giggly voices and often incorrectly accented making the whole meaning of the sentence change. Often just stopped as couldn’t continue listening to it so will need to now buy the book to find out what’s happened and try to erase the rubbish characters I’ve already imagined as a result of terrible reading. Real shame, will be checking future audible books for who narrates and reviews.

Absolutely terrible narration to a good book

I haven't written a review before but this narration is so bad I felt I had to.
I like to listen to an Audible book along with reading the Kindle or paper version but this narration was spoiling the book for me. The narrator has an annoying high pitched voice and this continues throughout the characters' dialogues without giving them any personality or suitable accents etc. The male characters are particularly badly narrated, not distinguishable from the female. I have given up with the Audible version and I am now enjoying reading my paper version of what is another good Harlen Coben book. I was going to return this but realised I had got it 'free' as part of a 2 for 1 offer, not sure how that would work so haven't bothered.

Great book.... twists and turns till then end.

HC is never obvious. Always keeps you guessing until the end. WIth great characters that you'll love.

Didn't seem like a Harlan Coben book?

Well I can pretty much sum up the dialogue as the first 80% of the book repeated :
"we need to talk X"
"No I've got nothing to say"
"we need to talk Y"
"no I don't want to"
"you need to talk to me Z"
"no I've got nothing to say"
repeat above about 40 times for the first few hours of book and you get the gist! Why the editor didn't pick this up is just lazy!

Other parts verged on ridiculous- like the lawyer who just endlessly abuses and ridicules law enforcement and the police who never get to ask the suspect a single question. The lawyer gives her take on everything. even the "reveal" with the mirror is completely implausible.
One of his weakest books.
