Summary

On the anniversary of her husband's accidental death, Marianne seeks comfort in everything Greg left behind. She wears his shirt and cologne, reads their love letters and emails. Soon she's following his footsteps across the web, but her desperation to cling to any trace of him leads her to the dark web. And a hit list with her name on it.

To try to save herself from Sam, the assassin hired to kill her, Marianne must first unpick the wicked web in which Greg became tangled. Was Greg trying to protect her or did he want her dead?

A gripping and emotional best seller about a woman who discovers a shocking secret about her late husband that will hook you from the first page

Critic reviews

"What would you do if you found your own name on a hit list? Seddon addresses this terrifying question in an explosive novel. One of the most exciting, brave and clever books I have ever read. The Hit List is my book of the year." (Gillian McAllister, author of How to Disappear)

"This novel kept me guessing to the end. A twisty, intelligent thrill ride. Excellent!" (Will Dean, author of Black River)

"This meticulously plotted novel will suck you ever deeper into its dark underbelly. Sinister, clever and utterly compelling." (Lesley Kara, author of Who Did You Tell?)

Giving up!

I was really looking forward to this, from the summary it sounded really promising, but unfortunately I am going to give up and return it.

The main character is dull, boring and feels far to sorry for herself! There is just no get up and go to her, and its just dragging the whole story down. She is making me feel depressed and miserable listening to it.
I cant tell if she is happy, angry, scared, nervous because her self pity and misery is overshadowing everything. No wonder someone wants her dead, to put her out of her misery

Really good listen

This is the third Holly Seddon I have read any have enjoyed them all. She is able to create interesting and unusual plots which keep the listener gripped. This book took a while to get into and I almost gave up but stuck with it and glad that I did. The narration was very good and to see things from Marianne and Sam's perspective was interesting. I would say that the end was a bit disappointing and took some believing, but overall a good listen.

Unexpected developments and sad realities

Interesting, if somewhat depressing, story of how things can go so, so wrong for 'good' people.

Good but ...

If the story and narration were a colour it would very grey. I kept listening as it really is a good story and I was curious as to what happens but I did struggle a bit with the tone and flat pace. Unfortunatly I couldnt bond with the characters so I fazed off a bit in parts but I did finish it but not memorable
