Publisher's Summary

From the best-selling author of All Is Not Forgotten and Don’t Look for Me comes a sharp, compulsive thriller about a young woman who narrowly escapes a violent crime and the psychiatrist helping to recover her memory of the suspect.

Gabby Ashford has just survived an attempt on her life. Detectives have connected her story to two other cases in the area: Professional women drugged at a bar, brought to their homes, and drowned in their bathtubs. Gabby, who miraculously woke up in her own bathtub unharmed, could be the key to finding a serial killer on the loose - but she has no memory of the attack.

Gabby admits herself to a high-end rehabilitation center to recover and to seek the help of a psychiatrist renowned for his work with memory recovery. As Dr. Forrester works with Gabby - interviewing not only her but her overbearing fiancée, her emotionally fragile brother, and the local detective working the case - questions about Gabby’s story, her past, and the ethics of memory recovery emerge.

Dr. Forrester, the central voice of Walker’s breakout debut All Is Not Forgotten, is a fascinating and deeply complicated character, barreling toward the truth of the case at hand while wrestling with the demons of his own past. Shocking and succinct, Hold Your Breath will have you on the edge of your seat from the first minute to the last.

Superb!

Excellent story with perfect narratives on. Spellbinding and Jus the right length for a long fall walk followed by a preferred beverage.

Nice surprise twist at the end.

Been a while since I have read/listened to something that gave a surprise twist, which was actually a surprise . I really enjoyed it, definitely worth a listen.

Hold Your Breath

I was a bit disappointed in this book/listen. Found while the story was quite good, it didn't grip me at all. I didn't quite feel into it or the characters. The narration was a bit flat.

Great mystery

Fun, twisting story. Just the right number of hints and misdirections to keep it exciting.

WooooWho! 25 Stars!


Oh my, this was an exceptional read. Taut, thrilling, twisty turny. Without giving away any plot, let me just say “Do yourself a favor and listen to this book”. I will be looking forward to more reads by this author.

Didn’t expect that

A story you don’t expect will turn out like that. At first it was a little thick, and the doctor does a lot of rambling but it does eventually all make sense. The way it ended though seems like there could be another story .

Quick listen

This was a decent short book. sometimes I listen to these shorter books as a pallet cleanser before my next longer listen. this was a good gap book. though it all seemed a little predictable, it wasn't bad.
