Easy listen

This was a decent enough story but not what I expected from the title or description. I thought it would be about discovering what had happened when the child was abducted but the whole story was leading up to the abduction. I still don't think the child had a 'secret' and I was left disappointed

Great story

I loved this book. I listened in the car mostly and I found myself sitting outside the house long after I'd arrived home just because I couldn't bring myself to stop listening before the end of a chapter. Narrator's accents weren't great but that didn't put me off. overall great read/listen
