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.

When Ellie tells me she has a new boyfriend, I am absolutely thrilled and can’t wait to meet him. She finally seems so happy and in love.

But there’s a catch. Ellie has never met him in person. In fact, he doesn’t even live in the same country. Our home is in England, but Daryl is in Los Angeles.

When handsome Daryl invites Ellie to stay with him at his luxury Los Angeles mansion for a few weeks, I insist on joining her. I need to find out more about the man who has my daughter so enamoured.

Daryl welcomes us into his whitewashed house, complete with a stunning swimming pool and sun-drenched patio. Then one morning, I discover a terrible secret in his basement that changes everything. He has been lying to us from the start.

I go to confront him, but Ellie and Daryl are nowhere to be found. I call Ellie’s phone but there’s no answer.

“But I’m coming with you.”

Dawn wants her daughter, Ellie, to be happy. Ellie might be an adult, but a mother always knows. Daryl was a surprise, as was finding out that Ellie was determined to go see him.

This was intense! I love how Daniel tells a story. The build-up was well done, the plot was scary and realistic, and the characters were relatable.

Dawn was such a classic mom. She worried over her adult daughter and stopped at nothing to protect her. Ellie was a mix of naïve, selfish, and stubborn. Her character was young and idealistic, desperate to find a connection. Daryl was mysterious, awkwardly charming, and too good to be true.

The build-up of this story was terrifyingly intense, and the story kept me on the edge of my seat. The narrators were excellent. They brought these characters to life in such a realistic way.

Daniel Hurst has done it again, creating a terrifying tale that will haunt your dreams!
