Read this book!!!

I picked this at random as I had a credit to spend and thought it looked interesting. What a find! I was completely blown away by this, and resented having to stop listening for meals and sleeping. A bit reminiscent of Special Topics in Calamity Physics, but set in England. Brilliant characterization and plotting, I almost guessed who dun it, but didn’t see the twist at the end. I cannot recommend this too highly. Don’t be put off by the YA classification, this is a seriously good book.

The best story I've listened to this year!

This book came highly recommended to me. I was a little worried it wouldn't live up to the hype, but I can confirm it 100% lives up to the hype and does not disappoint. I didn't see the ending coming from a mile off like some of the books I've listened to this year. I will definitely be reading the other books from this series.

Brilliant

This is the best book I have read in a long time.
I am an older person so it is more than just a teenage book, it is an excellent murder mystery.
Now to go and load up the next one in the series!

Brilliant!

Loved the story and the style of the audio book - using multiple voices really added interest into the story. The main presenter is brilliant, she got so much emotion and intrigue into the words which made this an excellent story. Would highly recommend!

Unlike anything i've read before - Brilliant!

This is unlike any book I have ever read/listened to before! Please do not be put off by the YA tag, this is most definitely for adults too.
I found this story to be enthralling and real, with many twists and turns, shocks, sadness and intrigue. I was hooked from the beginning.. Very well read by the narrators too.

Can not listen to this!

Listening to this book on Audible, I got 25 minutes in and had to stop it. The narrator's voice is ear piercing and, regardless of how good the story might be, I can not listen to that voice for 8 hours.
