Unravelling Oliver

The gripping psychological suspense from the No. 1 bestseller

Summary

Penguin presents the unabridged downloadable audiobook edition of Unravelling Oliver by Liz Nugent, read by Kevin Hely, Stephen Hogan, Tracy Keating, Roy McMillian , Steven Laverty, Michele Moran, Kathy O'Brien and Sam O'Mahony.


Oliver Ryan is a handsome and charismatic success story. He lives in the suburbs with his wife, Alice, who illustrates his award-winning children's books and gives him her unstinting devotion. Their life together is one of enviable privilege and ease - enviable until, one evening after supper, Oliver attacks Alice and beats her into a coma.

In the aftermath, as everyone tries to make sense of his astonishing act of savagery, Oliver tells his story. So do those whose paths he has crossed over five decades. What unfolds is a story of shame, envy, breath-taking deception and masterful manipulation.

Only Oliver knows the lengths to which he has had to go to get the life to which he felt entitled. But even he is in for a shock when the past catches up with him.
