批評家のレビュー

“Listeners are privy to some of the inner thoughts of characters, which is unsettling, and narrator Elizabeth Knowelden does a great job of portraying them in a chilling way.”Library Journal

“Be warned: Mitchell keeps digging deeper even after the main mystery is solved for more and more nasty revelations.”Kirkus Reviews 

“[Caroline] Mitchell’s (DI Amy Winter series) macabre stand-alone thriller tantalizes with a diabolical closed-room mystery slowly sloughing its secrets…With cagey plot twists, nuanced characters, and a pleasant young romance thrown into the mix, Mitchell’s thriller warms the heart as it tingles the senses.”Library Journal 

あらすじ・解説

From the bestselling author of the DI Amy Winter series comes a thriller about a shocking disappearance - and the village that has conspired to keep the truth buried.

Ten years ago, the Harper family disappeared. Their deserted cottage was left with the water running, the television playing cartoons, the oven ready for baking. The doors were locked from the inside.

Overnight, the sleepy village of Nighbrook became notorious as the scene of the unsolved mystery of the decade, an epicentre for ghoulish media speculation.

For crime journalist Naomi, solving the case has turned into an obsession. So now, with Ivy Cottage finally listed for sale, it’s her chance to mount an investigation like no other. And her husband and stepdaughter don’t really need to know what happened in their new home... do they?

But Nighbrook isn’t quite the village she expected. No one wants to talk to her. No one will answer her questions. And as she becomes increasingly uneasy, it’s clear that the villagers are hiding something - that there is something very dark at the heart of this rural idyll. And the deeper she digs, the more it seems her investigation could be more dangerous than she ever imagined... In raking up the secrets of the past, has she made her own family the next target?

A really great listen…

I have actually never, not once, said that a book is too short but this one was so well written, so engrossing that I felt like it needed at least five or six more chapters.
I highly recommend this book as you will find a fascinating story with a great cast of characters.
However, I did find it lacking in a couple of ways.
For a spooky, “cursed” village there should have been much more detail and a lot more attention to the setting of the scene.
There is a great deficit of this type of descriptive language, I want to hear the author describe the details, the weather, the feeling, the smells of a place.
This was also true when it came to the multitude of characters… aside from berry basic information about say their physical appearances, there is not much depth when it came to exploring who these characters are, how they are or feel from a human perspective.
It’s a lot of surface stuff, like so and so had dark black hair, like there is never an in-depth internal and external description of a single character in the book.
Also, for such a scary setting, this book could’ve been very, very spooky, and it really wasn’t.
An interesting mystery, yes! But it could have been done with more attention to detail, more of a small town paranoia could have been developed slowly and gradually brought up as the story progressed.
I still loved it. I just wanted to know these people and the place better.
Caroline Mitchell never disappoints, she’s a fantastic mystery writer.
I just wish we could’ve gotten a little more.
Like that Ouija board scene could have been terrifying or at least extremely spooky, and, much like the rest of the book, it just left me wanting. I wanted it to be longer and I wanted to know this family better.
There were also a couple of small details that weren’t really wrapped up.
I will still read it again.
And I will still recommend this book.
The narration is always phenomenal with Elizabeth Knoweldon.
Zero complaints there.
Overall it’s a yes. It just should’ve been longer and more descriptive.
A great little mystery though…

The story that wouldn't end . . .

Felt as if I were reading a college paper with a word count. Could've been done in 5 hours or less.

I love Caroline but....

I love Caroline Mitchell and have read every book. This one though...I skipped over chapters just to get to the end. I was bored to tears and it took me over a week to get through it. This is the first book of hers that I will return. I just didn't get this book at all.

There was so much back and forth to past/present without any clear indications in which time we were at any given time until a name pops up to tell you what time you're in. The typical step-mom/step-daughter hate relationship plays out but, in the end, you know exactly how it ends. That relationship got old very quickly and too much emphasis was put on it. Unfortunately, the only good thing I can say about this is the narrator. I'm used to her and she's always done a good job. Sorry Caroline, not one of your good ones!

A Story That Will Having You Gasping

A village full of dark secrets, fear and deceit. A village so tight knit that outsiders are met coldness and disdain. When a new family moves into the village, the residents work together to make them go for fear theirs secrets will come to light and their world torn apart.

This story by Caroline Mitchell will have you sitting on the edge of your seat right up to the shocking and unexpected ending. I couldn't put it down.

What a plot twist…or 5!!

First I want to start by saying that Elizabeth Knowelden has an excellent voice, she has perfect pitch when it comes to the dramatic parts of the story, and her subtle intonation make it easy to decipher between the characters. This book was really just full of plot twists. I loved how the narrative started out, the character build up was excellent, and the eventual dénouement was phenomenal. Caroline Mitchell wrote an excellent story, and my daughter and I couldn’t wait to drive to and from school so we could listen to the next chapter. We finally binged and finished it last night because we couldn’t wait. This is a super book for adults for sure, but also a 15-year-old. Super enjoyable, fun read, and this will be perfect for someone who is spending the summer at the beach. Can’t wait to try another Caroline Mitchell story.

Won’t believe the ending

One of the best suspense books I’ve read in a long time. It keeps the reader guessing, the storyline is engaging and doesn’t include profanity. Fast paced, interesting characters and great to the last page.

Hokey unbelievable resolution

Narrator not good at projecting a man's voice, so the dialogue becomes confusing. And the storyline was good until it took a hokey turn, which to me was sloppy and not well thought through.

LOVED THE TWISTS AND TURNS AT THE END 👌

I'm a huge Caroline Mitchell fan, both of her books and her true crime YouTube channel and I just find that her books never disappoint. I love how Caroline truly writes from the heart about things she knows about, drawing on her experience as a policewoman and detective and all of the different people and walks of life she has encountered.
This book is absolutely fantastic. A solid story that twists and unfolds several times, believable characters, a good pace...what more could you ask for?
A brilliant stand alone thriller and a big thumbs up for excellent narration too 👍
