Publisher's Summary

Cass is having a hard time since the night she saw the car in the woods and the woman who was killed. Since then she's been forgetting everything: where she left the car, if she took her pills, the alarm code, why she ordered a pram when she doesn't have a baby....

What she can't forget is the woman she might have saved, the terrible nagging guilt, the silent calls she's receiving and the feeling that someone's watching her.

Predictable and Lengthy

The beginning and end caught my attention...good characters and plot but the middle was just repetitive, the same things happening over and over. Glad I finished, but sorry I wasted so much time. Good narration though.

Boring, picked out the killer within the first few

I was so frustrated by this story. It was given away at the beginning what would happen at the end. The main character annoyed me.

Brilliant all round!

Where does The Breakdown rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?

One of the best books I've listened to - couldn't wait to continue through the story. Excellent plot that kept me on the edge of my seat guessing until the end.

What does Georgia Maguire bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?

Georgia Maguire was excellently cast to read this book - I choose books sometimes based on the fact that she is narrating them!

Slow at times

At first I wad very excited to listen to this because I had loved 'Behind Closed Doors' by the same author. I can't say I was entirely disappointed as the story was ok and the idea was intriguing. I just feel like it took a long time to get where it was going which I'm sure the author meant to be a slow burn build to an aha moment, that I wasn't all that surprised by.

Interesting

So interesting. Suspenseful, surprising. And of course superbly narrated by Georgia Maguire. I recommend any book written by
B A Paris.

Psychological thriller more interesting in the second part

The book reminded me the first one of B.A.Paris (Behind the closed doors) which I liked more, this one is a bit predictable if you listen them in a row. Reminds sometimes "The girl in the train" as well. But as good psychological thrillers are not many - I recommend it to readers who like this genre.
