Take Your Breath Away Audible Audiobook – Unabridged
A missing woman. A husband suspected.
The truth will … Take Your Breath Away
It’s always the husband, isn’t it?
When his wife Brie vanishes from their home one night, never to be seen again, people assume Andy got away with murder. The police can’t build a case against him, but still his friends and neighbours abandon him.
Six years later, Andy’s life is back on track, and he’s settled with a new girlfriend. And when he hears his old house has been bulldozed and rebuilt, he’s not bothered. Things are good.
But then one day, a woman who looks like Brie shows up at their old address, screaming ‘Where’s my house? What happened to my house?’ before vanishing as quickly as she appeared.
And as dark suspicions resurface, Andy’s future depends on discovering what the hell is going on. The trick is staying alive long enough to find out…

When a woman going missing, it is always the husband right? Even when that husband is away at his cabin, hours away, fishing with his best friend. 6 years ago, Brie Mason disappeared in the middle of the night, without a trace. Her husband, Andrew, is still the top of the suspect pool. He has finally gotten his life back on track after losing his wife, and as a consequence, his business and almost his life. He now has a new partner and life is good. Until the call comes that Brie has been spotted.... or has she?
Another fantastic read from Linwood Barclay. Highly recommend to all crime and thriller lovers - this one loved it.
What happens when one day you go on a fishing trip kissing your wife goodbye, only to come home and find her gone, never to be seen again. Having eventually moved on and now in a new relationship life is looking up for Andrew, but his past is about to come hurling back full force to once again disrupt his whole life and devastate him all over again.
I felt for Andrew in this story, I trusted him and liked him, his character seemed very genuine.
This was a wonderfully written story that had me guessing who might be responsible and who was not. In fact, I was so sure I was right but I was so, so wrong. It is a very clever multi-layered story, and the book literally did take my breath away. Fantastic and an absolute must-read.

1. I can’t ever pace myself enough to make it last more than a couple of days.
2. He needs to find a way to write approximately 52 books a year to satisfy my constant literary requirements.
This one was very intriguing although I had a few suspicions that were more or less correct. I didn’t enjoy it any less though and couldn’t stop myself from turning the pages. Now I have another 51 weeks to go ☹️
Well done Mr Barclay!
Also, it’s such a refreshing change to see an author describing animals/creatures in such a positive way. As an animal lover myself, I can never finish a book which has any undertones of animal abuse and it was lovely to read a story in which they were described in such a positive/humane way.
The characters were all rather two dimensional and the dialogue was functional at best. The descriptive passages were there to move the plot along but just didn’t bring the story to life. I take my hat off to anyone who can write a novel, I certainly couldn’t, but for a reader to really engage with the writing there has to be more than just a story. The author says he wrote it during lockdown. It’s funny but that’s exactly how the book feels, like life during lockdown - sort of unreal and half-lived!
I’m really surprised by all the great reviews and by the price of the kindle book.
I tried to ration myself to a couple of chapters each evening, but in the end gave in and finished it on the second night!
I did have a suspicion of the culprit, but this in no way spoiled it for me. The characters were interesting and the p.ot beautifully worked.
Now it have ages to wait for the next Linwood Barclay to arrive.
