    This was an Audible Freebie and one of the best I've chosen. It was very well paced, not too predictable, and I was able to feel some empathy with some of the characters. I was a bit confused at a couple points and had to rewind to understand some minor points, also- and this is super petty, but there's a character whose name is July which, for some reason, didn't sit well with me- every time that character came up I found myself thinking about how ridiculous I thought it was- I know it's silly This was an Audible Freebie and one of the best I've chosen.

Other then that I enjoyed this audio version, the narrator did a great job- it is an Australian book so the narrator has that accent. I'm so glad this didn't follow the " gone girl, women in the...the couple at the....the wife that..." formula It was a bit more unique as far as today's domestic thrillers go..It was a pretty quick listen at 6 and some hrs - super glad I picked this.I am definitely going to look into the author's other books that are out and hope they're good as well.

    Probably 3.5 stars rounded up!As someone who tends to dislike many of the popular thrillers these days, particularly psychological and domestic thrillers, I didn't expect much from this, but little else interested me from the Audible free originals this month. I don't even think I chose any last month, so I took a chance because the blurb about a man getting pushed into an incoming train sounded interesting (don't judge me 😬).

I don't even think I chose any last month, so I took a chance because the blurb about a man getting pushed into an incoming train sounded interesting (don't judge me 😬). I was pulled into the story immediately. Despite not liking many psychological thrillers, I DO enjoy psychology, so this was right up my alley. A psychologist treats a myriad of clients and is deeply interested in some of them.I was particularly fascinated by the client whose day job was being a content moderator on social media. I despise what social media has become and the hate that seems to thrive there, but I never really thought about the toil it must take on moderators to constantly be bombarded with hate speech and graphic images. I feel for content moderators! Eventually things start to go wrong, and everyone's credibility is questioned. In order to avoid any spoilers I won't dive into the plot at all. But I will say this kept me guessing about who was involved with what until the very end, and nothing was what it seemed. I did feel the final section started to drag a bit and became a little clichéd and predictable, but for the most part I was engrossed and couldn't wait to put my earbuds in to dive further into this twisted web of lies. I'll look for more from this author!

    Pretty good thriller about a psychotherapist who has some creepy clients and serious boundary issues.For an Audible original, this was a decent story, though the protagonist, Margot Scott, was really starting to annoy me by midway through, with her lack of acknowledgment of her own culpability. Turns out, I was meant to be annoyed.Years ago, when she was just starting out, Margot had a brief "inappropriate relationship" with a client who subsequently committed suicide.

Turns out, I was meant to be annoyed.Years ago, when she was just starting out, Margot had a brief "inappropriate relationship" with a client who subsequently committed suicide. Her loving (boring) husband knew she'd gotten in some trouble with the board, but not just how deep her "relationship" had been. Now Margot has a picture-perfect life complete with a dull husband who loves her far more than she loves him, a teenage son who's getting bullied online, and a 17-year-old daughter whose hormones are raging for a hot bad boy.Meanwhile, Margot is seeing a collection of troubled clients (aren't all a psychologist's clients troubled, by definition?), one of whom seems to be trying to push her boundaries. And since her husband is boring and this client is young and handsome, well, I give props to the author because I was really, really annoyed at Margot's internal monologue throughout the book as she rationalizes and justifies everything she does, maintaining a veneer of professionalism even when she's clearly not being professional. And then, after things go seriously bad and we get to the denouement, it fits together and I know that the author's representation of Margot was deliberate.

    I chose this Audible Originals monthly selection and it is just awful - free doesn't equate to good or worthwhile.The narrator has a whinny voice, which does fit the lead character - Psychologist Margot Scott, her daughter, and all of her clients. That doesn't mean I want to listen to 6.5 hours of whine. I'm more than 2 hours in and could care less about the lead character or anyone else involved.

The story reads as if a second year Psychology student decided to write this for an English class assignment. It's dull, predictable and full of basic psychology tropes.

    This book kept my interest to the last page and then I just worried and wondered. No spoilers. Just one gigantic twist at the end that made all the difficult situations in this book all worthwhile! I have to say, I enjoyed this read. Even though it left me with a lot of anxiety. But then the main character is a psychologist. Too many lines are crossed, two many protocols ignored, I should have seen it coming, but the fact that I didn't makes it even more of a conundrum.

    OMG! Put this on your MUST READ LIST!I must admit I got a bit hung up on the whole medical portion, doctor/patient ethics, HIPPA, diagnosis, etc. and then had to stop and realiz..... "It's a fickin' book!" Once I got over MY hang up,... this ended up being one of the best suspense books with so many unpredictable moments. It was captivating up to the VERY LAST PARAGRAPH and my jaw dropped! I did not see that "train" coming. I absolutely recommend this. Excellent forethought by the author. Great OMG!

    This was a free Audible Original, and one of the better ones that they've offered.This psychological thriller takes place in Australia in the home and office of psychologist Margot Scott. When her family falls victim to an arsonist, she suspects one of her clients. I won't give any of this story away. It is well worth a listen. Not entirely predictable, with lots of twists and turns, right up until the end. Highly recommend.

    I rarely actually leave reviews, just usually star ratings. So you know the book touched me in some way! I want to give this book way more than five stars. It starts out building suspense and just when you think youve got it figured out, bam! Plot twist. And so your sitting there listening and youre like oh wow, I know how all this is going to end and then you dont. The ending comes out of nowhere and just leaves you stunned. Damn good read. Definitely recommend. I rarely actually leave reviews, just usually star ratings. So you know the book touched me in some way! I want to give this book way more than five stars.

    Dude! This book was awesome, honestly one of the best audiobooks Ive listened to and I normally strongly dislike the Audible Originals. Im a huge fan of thrillers in general but this book is definitely in my top three. I loved all of the connections and twenty minutes before the end of the book I had determined that I really hated the ending; I finished the book and loved it. Great ending. Very captivating book.

    This was a great listen. Usually I dont expect too much from audible freebies but I gave this one a chance. It was well performed and the story wasnt too fast pasted or too slow. While the plot wasnt totally unpredictable, I did find the twists in the end to be very well thought out. For sure worth your time. This was a great listen.

    This story starts out one way and slowly turns in another direction, then another, and then another until you are left questioning everything. I was constantly left following the clues and then discovering what I thought was true was only part of the equation. My heart kept pounding harder, and harder until it leap out of my throat at the end! W-O-W! My heart is still pounding!

    This is a generous 3 stars...3 instead of 2 because it kept me wanting to know the ending- but I hated the process of getting there. Some predictable plot twists. The cuts to the phone conversations is weird. Also Im a psychologist so I couldnt look past a lot of it from that perspective...
