She wrote the book on escaping a predator… Now one is coming for her.
Faith Finley has it all: she’s a talented psychologist with a flourishing career, a bestselling author and the host of a popular local radio program, Someone’s Listening, with Dr. Faith Finley. She’s married to the perfect man, Liam Finley, a respected food critic.
Until the night everything goes horribly wrong, and Faith’s life is shattered forever.
Liam is missing—gone without a trace—and the police are suspicious of everything Faith says. They either think she has something to hide, or that she’s lost her mind.
And then the notes begin to arrive. Notes that are ripped from Faith’s own book, the one that helps victims leave their abusers. Notes like “Lock your windows. Consider investing in a steel door.”
As the threats escalate, the mystery behind Liam’s disappearance intensifies. And Faith’s very life will depend on finding answers.
Someone’s Listening by Seraphina Nova Glass was a twisted and mind-boggling read, which featured a complex cast of characters and had me guessing throughout most of the story.
This was my first experience with the author, and I have to say she impressed me.
The story introduces Faith, a happily married psychologist, author and radio host. However, beneath all the success lingers remnants of an abusive childhood. All appears to be going well until she’s accused of an unspeakable crime; from that moment her life began spiralling out of control. Her husband went missing under mysterious circumstances. Her friends abandoned her, and she has resorted to drinking and self-medication. The police refused to listen to her concerns regarding her missing husband. Besides, why would they believe the utterances of drunken and drugged up woman. Then she began receiving notes taken from directly from the book she authored. Does this have anything to do with her husband’s disappearance? She takes it upon herself, despite numerous warnings from her lawyer and the police, to to investigate who was behind the notes and to determine if and how they tie in with her husband’s disappearance.
Faith proved to be the most unreliable character. I could not trust her judgement because of her love affair with alcohol and drugs. Even with the mysterious notes, I still wasn’t sure if I could trust her. The fact the story was told solely from her POV added to the complexities of uncovering the truth.
I found the secondary characters, who aided in driving this intense story interesting. I could consider all of them except for the police suspects. I didn’t know whom to trust.
I found the story to be well written. It had me turning the pages. I needed to know the outcome. I thought I knew the route the story would take, but I was sorely mistaken. It wasn’t until near the end I had it all figured out. Wow! Talk about shocking, I never saw it coming until it was too late.
Someone’s Listening is one of those stories that will keep you reading way into the wee hours. A fitting story for fans of psychological suspense.
