Owen Pick’s life is falling apart.

In his thirties, a virgin, and living in his aunt’s spare bedroom, he has just been suspended from his job as a geography teacher after accusations of sexual misconduct, which he strongly denies. Searching for professional advice online, he is inadvertently sucked into the dark world of incel—involuntary celibate—forums, where he meets the charismatic, mysterious, and sinister Bryn.

Across the street from Owen lives the Fours family, headed by mom Cate, a physiotherapist, and dad Roan, a child psychologist. But the Fours family have a bad feeling about their neighbour Owen. He’s a bit creepy and their teenaged daughter swears he followed her home from the train station one night.

Meanwhile, young Saffyre Maddox spent three years as a patient of Roan Fours. Feeling abandoned when their therapy ends, she searches for other ways to maintain her connection with him, following him in the shadows and learning more than she wanted to know about Roan and his family. Then, on Valentine’s night, Saffyre Maddox disappears—and the last person to see her alive is Owen Pick.

My Review:

If you are a regular follower of my blog then you will know that Lisa Jewell is one of my auto-buy authors. After discovering her work a few years ago I have been making my way through her collection of books so when this became available on Borrow Box I couldn’t say no.

Once again the narration was exceptional. All three narrators made the story an easy listen and brought each character to life.

I found Cate’s role in the story very interesting. Whilst she was the neighbour of Owen Pick she instantly felt drawn to the case and her little detective work had me questioning what exactly was going on. I sympathised with her and felt she was juggling a lot with her children and her marriage. I was very pleased with how her story ended and felt she finally had a back bone when it came to Rowan.

Whilst Owen came across very creepy and a little odd I couldn’t help but feel for him. He did make some questionable choices but when I learnt more about his background he just seemed like someone who had been neglected. Perhaps if he had felt more loved and wanted then he wouldn’t of gone down the path he did?

Saffyre was a brilliant character. Once again the more I learnt of her story the more I felt I understood her and why she was acting in a certain way. Her ability to be ‘invisible’ was well executed as was her investigation. As soon as she went missing I was desperate to know what had happened. Whilst the three main characters were brilliant I felt that Josh was the little gem of this story. He was waiting in the background throughout but when it came to his turn in the spotlight boy did he shine!

This story was fast paced, intense and gripping from the start and that epilogue certainly packed a punch!

  1. Great review! I have actually listened to a few of Lisa’s audiobooks and they have all been fantastically narrated and so easy to follow and listen to! I have this one on my shelf so hopefully I’ll get to it soon! x
