#amreading – What, Why, Where

What (am I currently reading)?

I am currently listening to the audio book  How to Disappear by Gillian McAllister.  The (excellent) narrator is Nicola Walker.

(Blurb from Audible.co.uk)

The gripping new psychological suspense from the Sunday Times best-selling author of No Further Questions and The Evidence Against You.

What do you do when you can’t run and you can’t hide?

Lauren’s daughter, Zara, witnessed a terrible crime. But speaking up comes with a price, and when Zara’s identity is revealed online, it puts a target on her back.

The only choice is to disappear.

To keep Zara safe, Lauren will give up everything and everyone she loves, even her husband.

There will be no goodbyes. Their pasts will be rewritten. New names, new home, new lives.

The rules are strict for a reason. They are being hunted. One mistake – a text, an Instagram like – could bring their old lives crashing into the new.

They can never assume someone isn’t watching, waiting.

As Lauren will learn, disappearing is easy. Staying hidden is harder….

Why (have I chosen to read it)?

Years ago I watched a TV documentary about a woman who witnessed a crime committed by an infamous UK criminal.   The woman had to go into witness protection, and (according to Google) now, over 20 years later, she is still in hiding and still terrified.  Although I watched the documentary many years ago, it made such a deep impression on me that I still remember parts of it vividly. Therefore I hope this thriller will show me a bit more about what happens when a person goes into witness protection.    

Where (am I reading it)?

As this is an audiobook I’m able to listen to it whilst out hiking. I was listening to it as I walked around this water reservoir.
