An atmospheric story
This is very good story of a family split by the tragic murders or three children, which is so full of atmosphere that I can see the island at its centre and almost smell the salt in the air. I also thought the reader was exactly right for the book.

Of my many audible downloads so far, this has to be my favourite. An excellent who-done-it but a novel in it's own right. Sue Walker is an author to watch.

This is the best audible book I have listened to. Brillient atmosphere and compelling listening. I would definately recommend to anyone who enjoys a good thriller.

A long but engrossing book
Written by an author I've never heard of: I was not disappointed. Slowly but surely I was gripped by this excellently read story. It's a long book but it never flags. Knowing the locations where the narrative is set?the north and south sides of the Firth of Forth, including Edinburgh?made it all seem more real for me. The search for the truth, over who carried out a series of brutal murders, involves the listener not only in issues of justice and the robustness of evidence, but also in the effects of crime on the families and friends of victims and as well as those of the perpetrator.

Could have listened forever
Touching story,average plot and predictable end. However it was easy to relate to the charactors who gripped one's attention. This recording becomes a must due to its narrator, could quite easily listen to Johnathan Hacket reading the dictionary

This story was really addictive!
I just thought that this is a story that could have happened to any family!!! It is a wonderful journey through the 1970s. Throughout this story, I kept asking myself, what if that had happened to me and my father.
It is a truly realistic journey to the reader that takes you to the depths of a serial killer.

I am a taxi driver and play my Audible books when driving. I always know when I have a good book by my customers conversation or lack of. The better the book the less conversation and The Reckoning has been the best yet. I even had a few sniffles from one women when she was listening to the letter from Millers father. Great book Great listen. I believe the author has another book out that is also set in Scotland hopefully Audible will get this.

Impressed by the other reviews I chose this book not knowing a thing about it - so glad I did. Walker gives us a wonderfully atmospheric setting, fascinating characters and a great story that intrigues till the end - just couldn't stop listening! Wonderfully read also. More Walker books please.

I loved this audio book. Well read with just the right amount of accent. The narrator does a great job with the individual voices. The words paint a great picture of the place. Very believable characters. My only regret is its finished! I will be looking for more from this Author.

I unfortunately figured out 'who done it' in the first hour, but that didn't stop me enjoying the rest of the book.
It's well written and well read, although it took me a little while to get used to Jonathan Hackett's accent!
I'd definitely listen to a Sue Walker book again.
