Vanishing Point, by Carol Smith,A-minus, narrated by Judith Boyd, produced by Clipper Audio, W. H. Howes Ltd., downloaded from

This is an enthralling book with five women, seemingly unconnected, living in different cities and different countries, but all entwining their lives with the same man. Judith Boyd did her usual wonderful narrating job using different voices for the five women and the man at the center of it all. This is the best of the Carol Smith books I’ve read so far.

This book took allot of getting into, the storyline had real potential five women and one man. It had some interesting elements but somehow the story didn't quite excite. Some of the female characters were just doormats for this man and I fail to see why they would put up with it. The build up of each of he female characters took up the first half of the novel and really the only reason I stuck at it was I wanted to see how it would end.... I am not sure it was worth it.
