Publisher's Summary

Bygie Hudson's isolated life as an artist was perfect...except for her husband. Her seclusion is shattered when the police arrive to tell her there has been an accident. The man she'd been married to for 15 years, and considered divorcing for 14, is dead...and they believe she may be behind it.
As she fights to clear her name, she learns her husband has been selling far more than cars through their successful dealership, and the corruption is linked to a prominent judge...with tentacles reaching straight into San Diego PD. The deadly fallout puts her life in jeopardy.
When a witness disappears, and the threat of a reporter on the hunt for headlines is removed, lead Detective Tom Hall is told to walk away from the case. But the widow is an enigma. Unwilling to let go, he risks what's left of his stalled career by following leads on his own time. He refuses to let Bygie walk away until he uncovers the truth.
Sometimes, you just can't see crazy...even when it's staring you in the face.

A thriller

Any additional comments?

Kept me guessing all throughout the audiobook. I am ready to listen to the next book with continuation of the story. I was surprise at the ending.

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

Yes. Unlike some mysteries I had no idea "who did it". Did I have some guesses? Yes but I was very happy with how the story progressed and the ending.

What about Emily Beresford’s performance did you like?

I've always enjoyed Ms. Beresford's narrations. She is a narrator who gets into the story and shows all the emotion needed for each character. Her voice is pleasant and she keeps me drawn in the entire time.

Any additional comments?

Image of Deceit is a great mystery. The characters are well developed and I found myself routing for Bygie and Hall. The mystery itself is solid and I would recommend this book to my friends who enjoy a good book. I can't wait to see what Ms. Shannon comes up with next.
