Publisher's Summary

Kevin Derocher was thirty-two when he walked into Tom's office, newly married, a baby on the way, and the collar of his red flannel shirt pulled up to hide the bruises around his throat from when he hanged himself in his garage. After his initial consult, therapist Tom Langois believes he'll never see Kevin again-but Kevin turns up three years later to make repairs on Tom's new house.
Kevin and Tom become fast friends, and Tom begins to suspect Kevin may be interested in more than friendship. However, Kevin remains haunted by something from his childhood-something so terrible he blocked it from his mind. These suppressed memories make it impossible for Kevin to get close to anyone without panicking and lashing out, sometimes violently. But as his past begins to surface, it becomes apparent that Kevin may hold the key to a twenty-five-year-old mystery: what happened to Billy?

Great for putting you to sleep

Would you try another book from Jamie Fessenden and/or Gary Roelofs?

No


What do you think your next listen will be?

Anything that isn't narrated by Gary Roelofs


How did the narrator detract from the book?

Yes. Even at two speed the narrator was too slow. If you need help sleeping this book works a treat. I have never fallen asleep listening to a book before.


Any additional comments?

The book was fine I guess if you read it yourself but I just couldn't cope with the narrator.

Good Story, Horrible narration.

Would you try another book from Jamie Fessenden and/or Gary Roelofs?

I've read several books by Fessenden, including this one and picked up the audio book because it was on sale. If the same thing happens again, yes I will probably do so.


Would you be willing to try another one of Gary Roelofs’s performances?

Hell to the no! Terrible speaking voice, (he sounded like a muppet) inproper pronunciations, and weird inflections. he damn near ruined the book for me.


What would have made this romance irresistible?

Stop letting Roelofs mumble through it. Hire Sean Crisden or Guerin Berry or nearly anybody else to read from now on.
