After listening to, and really enjoying, "Envy" by Sandra Brown, I thought I would try this book. I reserve five stars for those books that I would definitely listen to again. This is one of those books. Both the story and the narrator kept me listening to the point where I hated to stop. I did not find the outcome to be predictable. I will definitely be looking for more of this author's work.

Low Pressure by Sandra Brown is another example of her awesome talent. Wow. I just marvel at her ability to set scenes and develop characters, and I love her use of the English language.
Stephen Lang is an amazing narrator. I had no trouble at all differentiating his voices between characters.
Another credit worthy novel…Enjoy!

My husband and I had to drive from Florida to New Jersey a few weeks ago, so I downloaded Low Pressure to listen to in the car. I wanted a story we both would be interested in, so I looked for a mystery. We listened to most of it on the way up and then finished it on the way back home. We stopped it and discussed the facts from time to time and made our predictions. It kept us awake and interested as we drove along I95 for hours and it was fun listening to it together!! I would read more of her books.

The example of the Swiss Cheese Model for error analysis alone was worth the price of this audio. I had never heard of this model. It stuck in my mind but I forgot to note which audio it was in and spent weeks checking books I had listened to before I heard it again in "Low Pressure." The example of the Swiss cheese model intrigued me so much I researched it afterward. I found it useful in understanding what can go wrong between key events in the Critical Path method for analyzing project activities. I missed the humour of "Lethal," but I enjoyed the romance and all the twists and turns in the plot.

This book reads like earlier Brown , the only thing that brings it into the present is the mention of an IPad. it has the twists that she does so well, but predictable. Marginally worth your time cash credit.

Would you recommend this book to a friend? Why or why not?
Yes I would recommend it. The story was good and you get a few ideas of the "who dunnit" but you don't have any solid evidence until the end. I found myself going back and forth between 3 characters.
Any additional comments?
The writing at some points got kind of cheesy and I thought Dent was overly persistent and cannot imagine many if any guys being that persistent.
An example of cheesy:
Dent: That looks good on you.
Bellamy: Your shirt?
Dent: No debauchery.
