Summary

A new home. A new start.

It’s all the Lockwoods want.

And on The Avenue, a leafy street in an Essex town near the sea, it seems possible.

But what if what they want isn’t what they get?

On their moving-in day they arrive to a media frenzy.

A serial killer has struck in the woods behind The Avenue.

The police are investigating.

And the neighbours quite clearly have secrets.

With their dream quickly turning into a nightmare, the Lockwoods are watching everyone.

But who’s watching them.

No idea what was going on despite rewinding!!

Couldn’t follow this at all. As another reviewer said - rewinding to the beginning didn’t help at all. Maybe it’s because it’s audio and not being read? Who knows? More to the point who cares?!! Looked forward to this after the good reviews. Obviously I’ve missed something. Good luck!

Ahrg, that was painful

I had read the reviews before I purchased the book, so I felt I had to listen all the way through. That book was way too long, with no real substance.

Only Fair

So many different scenes, names n locations, hard to keep track.Narrator was very good.Decided to see the book out as I was 70% through it and would have been a waste not to see it through.

Awful!

I am on chapter 28 i have no idea what is going on in this book! I started from the beginning a few times, just to make sure I wasn't missing anything, but I wasn't. Not for me

One of the best books that I have listened to

I have listened to many books, mainly thrillers and this book, both the excellent writing and the outstanding narration is most definitely in my top 5. Amazing. I couldn't stop listening and then towards the end I stopped for a while as I was so desperate to listen to the end but didn't want it to end. It was so hard to wait and I admit, I didn't wait very long at all in the end. Listen to it please, it's quality. What on earth do I listen to next???
