Publisher's Summary

The explosively addictive locked-room thriller from New York Times best seller Clare Mackintosh! A lot can happen in 20 hours when you're at 38,000 feet....

A claustrophobic thriller set over 20 hours on one airplane flight, with the heart-stopping tension of The Last Flight and the wrenching emotional intensity of Room, Hostage takes us on board the inaugural nonstop flight from London to Sydney. 

Mina is trying to focus on her job as a flight attendant, not the problems of her five-year-old daughter back home or the fissures in her marriage. But the plane has barely taken off when Mina receives a chilling note from an anonymous passenger, someone intent on ensuring the plane never reaches its destination. Someone who needs Mina's assistance and who knows exactly how to make her comply. It's 20 hours to landing. A lot can happen in 20 hours....

Awesome story! A little hard to follow at the beginning but it all comes together and results in a jaw dropping ending... Just listen... you won't be sorry!

Storyline

It took a couple of chapters to get into this story but it soon grabbed my attention. It took awhile to get used to the timeline jumping back and forth but once I got used to it, the tension built up excitingly.
Throughout the story, I had quite a bit of trouble with the narrator’s accent because I found she didn’t enunciate very clearly at times. For example, when Mina sounded like Nina or when Sophia sounded like Sofir.
I will look for more audibles by this author but not if narrated by this particular narrator.
