There are two sides to every story: yours and mine, ours and theirs, his and hers. Which means someone is always lying.
When a woman is murdered in Blackdown, a quintessentially British village, newsreader Anna Andrews is reluctant to cover the case. Detective Jack Harper is suspicious of her involvement, until he becomes a suspect in his own murder investigation.
Someone isn’t telling the truth, and some secrets are worth killing to keep.
DNF @ 45%.
I tried. Really hard. Which is a big indicator of an issue. If I have to keep forcing myself to pick it back up or care… The narration was absolutely phenomenal and that might be why I went as long as I did. There were some interesting reveals and *twists* – but I just couldn’t overcome how much disdain I felt for both main characters. Jack & Anna were unlikeable.
More details on my objections – but contains spoilers:
Jack was particularly problematic. I could not stand that he was in possession of so much information & evidence and not disclosing it. Personally involved with the victim. I get a slightly flawed cop – but this was ridiculous and over the top.
Anna was a self centered alcoholic. She blames everyone else for her problems and I don’t really see the point of her in the story even after listening to half of it.
Richard Armitage and Stephanie Racine were wonderful. I’d love to check out more narrations from either one.
