standalone-sunday

Standalone Sunday is a weekly meme hosted by  Megan @ bookslayerreads.Standalone Sunday was created to let others know about all the standalone books you have loved, but maybe don’t get the attention they need. Megan created the banner as well and anyone joining in can use it too. Why not check out her blog too🙂

I can’t believe it’s time for another Standalone Sunday, where has the week gone?

This week I’m choosing an audiobook I borrowed from my local library’s online resources. Going by my Goodreads record I actually listened to this exactly three years ago (give or take a week) and I can still remember how much enjoyed it.

The Invisible Ones by Stef Penney

19291511

Rose Janko is missing.It has been seven years since she disappeared, and nobody said a word. Now, following the death of his wife, her father Leon feels compelled to find her so he hires a private investigator: Ray Lovell.

Ray starts to delve deeper, but his investigation is hampered by the very people who ought to be helping him – the Jankos. He cannot understand their reluctance to help. Why don’t they want to find Rose Janko?

This is a brilliant mystery/thriller about a family of gypsies or Roma people set in the UK.   Dan Stevens of Downton Abbey narrated this perfectly, portraying the different characters so well that I actually forgot that it was just one person reading the story. Even though I know the story I could definitely listen to this again.
