Publisher's summary

The gripping new Audible Original from queen of suspense K. L. Slater.

When the call came it seemed like the answer to my prayers.

My career as a voice actor had been over for months and me and my little girl Scarlet were living back at my mum’s place. I felt like a failure professionally—and with Scarlet having problems at school, as a parent as well.

So, when I was asked to narrate a new book by disappeared novelist Philippa Roberts I jumped at the chance, even if it meant leaving Scarlet with my ex, Hugo, for a few weeks. Hugo, with his perfect new home and his perfect new girlfriend Saskia.

But this isn’t a dream come true. It’s a nightmare.

There’s something hidden in the pages of this book, I’m sure of it. Some clue to Philippa’s disappearance. And I don’t feel safe. I’m being watched. My room has been searched. Saskia has been calling me in tears. If I don’t find answers fast I’ll lose more than my second chance.

I’ll lose my daughter.

A breath-taking new thriller from the number one author of The Marriage and The Widow. If you like Gone Girl, The Girl on The Train and The Wife Between Us then you will love The Narrator.

Love but it's a production issue!

Love, love, love KL Slater. Big fan! Another great book. Whoever is managing the audio production, please reduce the volume on the shouting and the shrieking fake child voices. People listen with headphones. It's too loud and totally distracting.

Narrator keeps screaming

Omg. I’m listening to this great story very relaxed , but every time the narrator does the little girls voice she screams “ mummy” and it’s deafening while listening with ear buds and it makes me scream and pull out the earbuds. Very annoying

really bad ending

This book had a fairly compelling storyline. However, when it got to the end it seemed like it was using a cute method for saying what happened. This totally didn't work for me. throughout the book there was highly complex explanations of why things were done. at the end it just drops like a thud without the context that's needed.

what??

definitely didn't see the ending coming, but that's because it makes no sense. WHAT???


Characters are well developed, but the story itself....it's as if the author tried so hard for that "gotcha" moment that the beginning and ending are not at all cohesive. I'll leave it at that. Overall opinion: save yourself the hours of your life. I won't be getting mine back.

Just disappointing

I'm afraid the narration was the best part of this book. The story line had some really good potential, but it definitely fell short.
Poorly executed and loose ends not tied up at the end.
The only reason I didn't return this title to get my credit back, is because I did finish the book.
I certainly wouldn't recommend it though.

Interesting plot, definitely a fun read.

For me the narrators really made this book shine. I'm a big fan of Clare Corbett. Bravo!

Very disturbing

This was a horrible read. This book was very dark. I fast forwarded to the end to get it over with. If not, then it will drag on forever.
