I received a copy of this audiobook for free, and I leave my review voluntarily.

Daniel Hurst is the author of several bestselling psychological thrillers, including ‘The Passenger,’ ‘We Used To Live Here,’ and ‘Til Death Do Us Part.’ His books have been the #1 Psychological Thrillers in the UK and Australia and regularly feature in the Amazon Top 100 charts.

He thinks his secret is safe. But she knows the truth…

My husband is a doctor. He’s smart and charming and everybody trusts him. Except me.

On the surface, it looks like I have it all – the perfect marriage, the perfect husband, the perfect life. But it’s far from the truth.

Doctor Drew Devlin is not the respectable figure he makes out to be. The reason we moved to this beautiful, old property with a gorgeous view of the sea was because we needed to put our past behind us. It should’ve been a fresh start for us both.

Except I’ve discovered my husband has been lying to me again. He’s using the power he has in his job to mess with people’s lives, and to get exactly what he wants – no matter who it hurts.

But he’s underestimated me. I’ve had plenty of time, in this big, isolated house, to think about all of his mistakes.

And my husband has no idea what’s about to happen next…

“A person can never be too careful.”

Fern isn’t excited to be moving t a small village. But her husband, Drew, is ecstatic about the opportunity. He sells the idea by saying it will give him a better work/life balance. Which Fern knows is a lie. All Drew does is lie.

WELL. I devoured this book in print, and when I saw it available as audio had to give it a listen. How does a book get even better the second time? I finished reading this book and the next day started listening to the audiobook, and I was still captivated and held hostage by this story.

The narrators were fantastic. The tones and delivery were spot-on and brought these characters to life. David Wayman captured the pompousness of Drew so beautifully. Sarah Durham delivered perfectly as Fern. I found the balance so well done.

I loved how devious and dark this story was. How this house of cards was built and destroyed was so clever. And the way the twists were dropped left my jaw on the floor.

Daniel Hurst can weave quite the tale, and the man is not afraid to let his readers free fall into the chaos, especially when they least expect it.

I highly recommend this audiobook. Everything is stellar, the writing, the performance, the delivery, and the impact of the twists. This was fantastic.

I am looking forward to Daniel’s next novel!
