Publisher's Summary

Three massacres, two detectives, one writer, zero answers.
Freelancer Kendall Jennings writes fluff pieces for women's magazines. When a horrific massacre occurs at Café Amaretto, she scores an exclusive interview with a survivor. Suddenly, she's the go-to reporter for the crime.
Investigating veteran detective Lance O'Grady and his partner, Trip, are tasked with finalizing the open and shut case. Seven people are dead at the hands of an unprovoked killer wielding an axe.
Then another mass killing occurs. This time, arson and 10 eldercare facility residents die in the blaze. Then it happens again. Even more shocking: a mother with a gun goes on a rampage at a family birthday party. The crimes have no motive, and Lance O'Grady is left wondering how evil can strike twice in such a short space of time.The only connection is that the killers share one odd detail: none have a murderer's profile. Ordinary citizens suddenly just became killers.
Drawn deeper inside the crime investigation, Kendall finds herself not only clashing with O'Grady but also struggling with old demons. What Kendall and O'Grady don't realize is they are caught in a plot far greater reaching than just these crimes. Someone is sending a message. And unless they can decipher the meaning, very soon, many more will die.
Deadly Messengers, a pause-resisting thriller, poses the question: Does a killer lurk inside everyone? The answer may prove more frightening than the crimes.
Narrated by Anne JohnstonBrown, winner of the 2012 Audible Female Voice Award.

NOT Music to Fall Asleep by!

Author Susan May lovingly supplies every detail in exquisite depth as three separate mass murders occur in a very brief timespan. The actions are so portrayed that we feel sympathy for the perpetrators even as we leave their minds and observe from without the appalling aftermath of such violence. Add in a troubled journalist and a policeman with his own secrets and watch as human emotions and reactions are explored and possible pharmaceutical side effects revealed. Bordering on the thrilling edge of horror, this psychological thriller will keep you on the edge of your seat. I enjoyed the extremely well-read AUDIO version and would suggest this is NOT music to fall asleep by!

Anne Johnstonbrown awesome narration made this an outstanding audio

I loved Deadly Messengers when I read it the first time. Listening to this narration brought the book to life. I found myself actually laughing out loud in a couple of spots. This is not a funny story but there are a couple of comical scenes. The narrator did an amazing job changing her voice for the different characters. Her narrative took on the character and that characters personality perfectly. I enjoyed this more than reading it. Certain lines just stay with you in this book. The narration enhanced that. The characters are really well developed. The plot will take you places you will not believe.
I will keep this one to enjoy again.

an interesting thriller with unexpected twist

Where does Deadly Messengers rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?

This audiobook was another interesting experience with Anne Johnstonbrown, i think it is my favorite by her voice. I enjoyed listening to the book and remembering details of the story and feeling all the emotions all over again. Hearing the story made all the scenes seem more vivid and real and more intense.

Which character – as performed by Anne Johnstonbrown – was your favourite?

My favorite character is definitely Kendall Jenning. She was when i first read the book and she remained such after hearing it. Anne Johnstonbrown did a really ood job with her, i could almost see her.

Any additional comments?

The voices for all the other characters were also really good, it was a bit odd with Lance O'Grady, i imagined him differently but still it was interesting to listen to him! Again Ms Johnstonbrown did a good job narrating a really good book!
