Summary

The brand-new psychological thriller from the author of The Perfect Couple and The Happy Family.

When Mary receives a blank diary as a present, she thinks nothing of it. Until she opens the diary, and sees it’s not blank after all....

1st January Murder Lisa, Oxford 

1st February Murder Jane, Birmingham 

1st March Murder David, Cardiff 

1st April Murder Mary, Cheltenham 

Is this some kind of sick joke? But…it’s the end of January now. And a woman named Lisa was murdered in Oxford on 1st January.

Does that mean there really is a killer out there, planning to commit a new murder on the first of each month? And is the Mary due to be killed on 1st April her?

The clock is ticking for Mary to uncover the truth, before she becomes the next victim on the killer’s list....

Brilliant story but bizarre narration

I loved this story. The narrator was fine in some ways but her accents were truly appalling. A police woman from Newcastle who’s described as having a soft Geordie accent given a Merseyside accent and many many more. Who on earth allows that to be published?? It’s as if she’s never come into contact with anyone from the UK. Someone needs to give her a map. She does a series of vague northern accents regardless of the description in the story because she clearly has no idea where the various characters are from. I have no idea how accurate her US accent is or whether that’s equally awful. Also she speaks so quickly. The pace is so fast that I had to rewind often and eventually set it at half pace. The alternative was to process about a quarter of the narration which isn’t acceptable for a crime drama. Another great book let down by sloppy narration. Its such a shame. It happens too often. Why aren’t there producers watching out for this??

Brilliant story

Format: audiobook
Narrator: Grace Andrews and Leighton Pugh

I devoured this book in one sitting, an interesting plot that keeps you guessing and a few twists that slowly reveal themselves definitely add to the whole enjoyment of this story.

The narrator’s did a great job portraying the tension, frustration and fear. Well done all.
