MY THOUGHTS

 
While I always enjoy Saskia Maarleveld's narration...this could have benefitted from a second narrator for each of the Bec's.  The constant POV changes were hard to keep up with, especially with only one narrator for each POV.

I did not see that twist coming...so well done on that.  But...yeah there's a but, I felt like the ending, overall had some believability issues.  I'm just not so sure that things could have played out the way they did. It was like, whoa, here's this unforeseen twist and this should ratchet up the suspense, but it was written in a way that downplayed everything that was going on.  Basically, it was weird...but also, compelling.
