Publisher's Summary

The darkest secrets we keep even from ourselves...
Mary Austin is the kind of teacher that parents adore and children wish for. Firm and compassionate, a guiding light in their lives, she would do anything to protect her students. But that loyalty is tested when the school's sadistic bully is found dead on campus and suspicion falls on six children in her class, none willing to talk, point the finger, or reveal the killer.
Faced with this, Mary finds herself confronted with dark memories from her own childhood. Fragmentary flashes of scenes from the past begin to test the bounds of her reality. With the onslaught worsening, a tenacious detective is brought in to close the case.
On loan from the Seattle Police Department, Detective Dooley Ashe is plagued by his own demons, but focuses on breaking through the wall of silence the children have erected. Up against a town indifferent toward the crime and suspects virtually untouchable by the law, Dooley turns to Mary as an avenue to the truth.
As an unlikely closeness develops between Dooley and Mary, the suspected children close ranks, worried that one of their own is ready to break and give the detective what he wants. But when unseen adversaries push back, with both damaging and deadly results, Dooley and Mary are forced to face their personal limits as they each discover the unthinkable identity of the real killer.

Near narrating

Where does All for One rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?

It was a good listen but I'm not gonna rank it

Did the plot keep you on the edge of your seat? How?


How could the performance have been better?

The narrator for Mary in the story sounded like a little child not like a schoolteacher

Did you have an extreme reaction to this book? Did it make you laugh or cry?

No and no

Any additional comments?

Speed Reading!

What disappointed you about All for One?

The narrator read much too fast. Audio books are to be enjoyed in a relaxed manner.

Would you be willing to try another book from Ryne Douglas Pearson? Why or why not?


How could the performance have been better?

Slow Down!!

Any additional comments?

Sadly, I didn't finish this book as it wasn't enjoyable to listen to.
