if you want something to listen to on drives or whilst doing jobs, then this is fine. The plot is fairly interesting; Susanna is a counsellor who's past, in the form of Adam, a new and mysterious client, has caught up with her. However, whilst the story kept me listening, i found the characters were a little stereotypical, particularly Jake and his delinquent friends, and the ending was disappointing. which, of course, is personal to me.
