Summary

One last secret...would you kill to keep it?

Another incredible domestic thriller from the Sunday Times number one bestselling author of sensational books like Both of You....

One last client....

A week at a beautiful chateau in the south of France—it should be a straightforward final job for Dora. She’s a smart, stunning and discreet escort and Daniel has paid for her services before. This time, all she has to do is convince the assembled guests that she is his girlfriend. Dora is used to playing roles and being whatever men want her to be. It’s all about putting on a front.

One last chance....

It will be a last, luxurious look at how the other half lives, before Dora turns her back on the escort world and all its dangers. She has found someone she loves and trusts. With him, she can escape the life she’s trapped in. But when Dora arrives at the chateau, it quickly becomes obvious that nothing is what it seems....

One last secret....  

Dora finds herself face to face with a man she has never forgotten, the one man who really knows her. And as old secrets surface, it becomes terrifyingly apparent that one last secret could cost Dora her life....

From the Sunday Times number one bestseller Adele Parks comes a blisteringly provocative novel about power, sex, money and revenge.

Very enjoyable

Really loved this story it was very authentic and interesting. But my 5 stars really are for the narrator. He was just fabulous. Probably the best narration I have heard to date

Superb narration satisfying story

The reader ramps up the drama hugely by reading exciting passages most expressively I enjoyed the whole book and was delighted to have guessed a couple of twists. Gaslighting, intent to murder and terrible secrets all collide to make a completely absorbing and atmospheric story I was so sorry to finish. Well worth a credit as it’s very long and full of surprises.

Unintelligent mega-drama!

Slow motion ’car crash’ writing & narration. Far-fetched, overreaching, gratuitous and melodramatic. Unlikeable characters— particularly the arrogant and cynical protagonist. The only emotion evoked is one of disappointment in myself for listening until the end. Hoping this trend of post-pandemic mega-drama is going to tire.

Intreaging and surprising read.
Thoroughly enjoyed it.
A bit slow to start and longer than my usual audio books but well worth the patience.

Gripping

I did not want to stop listening to this! It’s consumed my weekend! Excellent book and once finished I started re listening immediately because I felt like there was so many details that would make more sense/improve my view of the tale the second time.
One of my favourite ever audio books. Excellent performance and excellent story!!
