One chilly morning a man throws himself off a Great Lakes ferry. An apparent suicide, the body is never found.
Five years later, we learn that the man had faked his own death. An accountant who had become unwittingly mixed up in a criminal conspiracy, he was being threatened by a ruthless mobster: tell us where the money is or we'll kill your wife and eight-year-old daughter.
If he'd been able to hand over the money, he would have done it in a heartbeat. But he couldn't, and so the only way to put his family beyond reach of harm seemed to be to make himself dead.
He has a different life now, and a different identity, and he never allows himself to think about his family. The fact that they are safe is all that matters.
Until one day he sees an article in USA Today about a 13-year-old girl who's won a national spelling bee. There's a picture. It's his daughter. And in the background there's his wife, holding hands with a man. Of course, he should have expected it.
What he didn't expect was that he recognized the man, and the last time he spoke to him he was threatening to kill his wife and daughter. He puts the paper down, and knows this changes everything. Now he's going to have to go back, and save his family one more time.

Was hat Ihnen das Hörerlebnis von Fear the Worst besonders unterhaltsam gemacht?

This book I now realize comes with two different covers and the description of 'Fear the Worst' with the blue cover, and the one I chose because of that description, does not match.Audible needs to correct that.Nevertheless I am enjoying the book. This is my second Linwood Barclay, and it won't be my last.

Was mochten Sie an der Handlung am liebsten?

Well put together.

Was genau mochten Sie an der Sprecherleistung? Was hat Ihnen nicht gefallen?

The speaker has a very gruff voice and takes some getting used to.

Gab es im Hörbuch einen Moment, der Sie ganz besonders berührt hat?
