Publisher's Summary

As a sniper with the elite Massachusetts State Police SWAT Team, Bobby Dodge saved a woman and her young son by shooting her armed husband. But vicious rumors begin to circulate the next morning when Bobby loses his gun and his privileges. It turns out the dead man was the son of a prominent Boston judge and had accused his wife of poisoning their son. Facing awkward stares and a crippling wrongful death lawsuit, Bobby begins his own investigation into the fateful shooting, and a fight to reclaim the life he holds dear. As the trail takes him into a twisted minefield of sordid wealth and family secrets, he is learning that nothing, and no one, is what they seem.

Great story, annoying characterizations.

Would you say that listening to this book was time well-spent? Why or why not?

No, the voice actor did such a horrible job personifying characters that I couldn't wait for the recording to be over. I contemplated just reading it, but since I had already purchased the audio book, I just kept going with it.


What did you like best about this story?

The story was great and is very necessary to read the follow up "HIDE." Great plot twists.


How could the performance have been better?

The performer made Bobby Dodge sound like 65 year old moron from South Boston. I understand that she was trying to lay on the Boston accent thick, but it came along with making him sound like a big dumb oaf throughout, and having read other Lisa Gardner books, I know that this was not the intention for Bobby Dodge. She also made D.D. sound much too prissy compared to every other audiobook performer I have heard. I am so glad that they changed performers in the other books.


If this book were a movie would you go see it?

Yes

I know I'm not Alone . . .

. . . when I say that this audiobook was a delight. I am a fan of Gardner's and she does not disappoint on this book. I wasn't very impressed with the reader, but definitely like the book. Also, if you haven't read it yet, do read The Killing Hour and The Next Accident, Killing Hour is outstanding five stars!
