Publisher's Summary

A rising star at her prestigious Seattle law firm, Dana Hill knows all about stress. She pours herself into her work and family with all the energy she has. But her carefully balanced life is about to be turned upside down. First a frightening medical diagnosis forces her to reassess her roles as a lawyer, mother, and wife to a man she suddenly no longer trusts. Then her life is rocked further by the shocking and brutal murder of her twin brother.With a smart, iconoclastic detective named Michael Logan as her only ally, Dana dives into the investigation, relentlessly seeking answers to who killed her brother and why. Logan cannot believe that the murder was anything more than a robbery gone terribly wrong. But when Dana uncovers a priceless handcrafted diamond earring in the debris of her twin's trashed home, the case becomes more sinister. Dana is sure the jewel is the key to her twin's secrets. And Logan becomes convinced it can help stop a string of cold-blooded murders that have followed in the wake of her brother's death.As Dana and Logan chase the faint trail of evidence from Seattle to Maui, they threaten the reputation, career, and future of a powerful man who will stop at nothing to protect what he considers his. But for Dana, for whom time has a special meaning, nothing - not even her own life - is more important than finding the truth. She has moved beyond fear and beyond anyone's attempts at damage control.

Better than average mystery/thriller

Any additional comments?

Perhaps it is because I've listened to several disappointing stories recently, but I very much enjoyed this read. Robert Dugoni has very well honed skills in keeping a story moving and sidestepped the pitfalls of creating unbelievable solutions that so many writers seem to do. Also, even though this is a political/police thriller, Mr. Dugoni has successfully avoided inserting his own political bias into the story, one of my pet peeves is snarky pot shots some writers take at either the right or the left of the political spectrum, thank you for that. I am also likely to look for more books by this narrator, Christopher Lane, his pace was just right with character voicing's that enhanced rather than distracted from the story.

A few Murders, An Earring, And A SoothSayer...

I enjoyed listening to this story. There's a good bit of suspense and mystery in this police procedural, it's fast paced and nicely narrated by Christopher Lane. The central character, Dana Hill, is an attorney, wife and mother. Dana is in the middle of a personal medical crisis when suddenly her life is shocked to its core. Her twin brother is brutally murdered. Dana's life is turned upside down as she looks for answers to who killed her brother and why.

One interesting character, who I think of as a "soothsayer", added a bit of mystery and interest to the storyline. The soothsayer is eccentric and a little over the top, but acceptable for the value added to the storyline. A lost earring is the catalyst that threatens the reputation and future career of a powerful man who instigated murders in order to protect his interests.

Christopher Lane's excellent narration elevated this story to an "ok" status. This was a good change of pace listen for me.
