Fourteen years ago, Kaitlin Roe was the lone witness to the abduction of her cousin Gina. She still remembers that lonely Virginia road. She can still see the masked stranger and hear Gina’s screams. And she still suffers the guilt of running away in fear and resents being interrogated as a suspect in the immediate aftermath. Now Kaitlin has only one way to assuage the pain and nightmares—by interviewing everyone associated with the unsolved crime for a podcast that could finally bring closure to a case gone cold.
But when a woman Kaitlin questions is later found stabbed to death, she fears that she’s drawn a killer out of hiding. It’s Detective John Adler’s fear that the murders have only just begun. Now his job is to keep Kaitlin safe.
As a bond between Kaitlin and Adler builds, the past closes in just as fast—and it’s darker than Kaitlin remembers. Soon, her wish will come true. She’s going to find out exactly what happened to Gina. Someone has been dying to tell her.

Yeah, I liked it, and I usually don't listen to books like this. I looked forward to my workout each day so I could listen to it, then started also listening to it in the car. The story line was compelling.
Good points: It was an excellent story, with mystery and suspense. Some other reviewers were confused by the timeline, but I didn't find it difficult to follow. I thought it was clearly spelled out what was happening in real time and what were "interviews." There were solid characters with interesting back stories. It read like a movie.
Bad points: Minor, but worth noting that there a few cases of similar physical action descriptions that repeated, such as, "He helped her in the SUV and then slid behind the wheel," and then a short time later we hear it stated nearly verbatim the next time they got into the vehicle. Each instance happened close to one another, and I thought I had lost my spot in the story, so I would fast forward only to realize that it was a repetitive description of physical action, not a glitch in my app. Those should have been caught in editing.
Also, I could have done without the two sex scenes which read more like soft core porn and didn't add to the story. Alluding to sex is always more sexy than graphic descriptions.
Overall, I recommend it.

Good Procedural as I would expect from Mary Burton
This is a very good police procedural. The book is tense and although not lightening paced it moves steadily along through a cold case.
The publisher's summary gives a good description of what to expect. The story unfolds as the protagonist (Katlin Roe) puts together a podcast to bring attention to the case of her cousin's disappearance 14 years ago. Through her own memories and interviews with people aware or involved each new chapter uncovers a little more of what happened that night. The problem is the people she interviews start turning up dead. At first the detective looks at Kaitlin as a possible accomplice but then she is almost murdered as well. The crime was interrupted and she ends up in the hospital instead of the morgue. Well written book with interesting characters and a surprising ending.
Brittany Pressley does a very good job narrating.

This is an exciting read
I have to confess to being a real Mary Burton fan and wait eagerly for her books to come out. She is an excellent writer who tells a great suspense story and this one does not disappoint. The story is solid and the characters very believable. I recommend this author to anyone who enjoys Karen Rose.
