Publisher's Summary

Marty Kalish is a young man suffocating in the heat of an affair with a married woman named Rachel. When Rachel's husband disappears one night, Marty is one of the first to be questioned. With few likely suspects, the police arrest him for murder.We know Marty was outside their home that night. We know he has a motive. We know he's guilty of something. But is it murder?Everything we learn - about Marty as a man, his affair with Rachel, and the night in question - comes from Marty himself. We want him to be innocent, but the more he tells us, the more we fear he is guilty. And as the twists and turns of the plot unfold, we can't be completely sure.

As soon as I finished reading Line of Vision I went to find more of his books and was disappointed to find so limited few. I have read some of the best and David Ellis is right up there with this one. I absolutely couldn't put it down. I downloaded it onto my ipod and went to bed with it every night. Great twists and turns right up to the very end. Please...write some more like this, I can't wait to read another one.

Hope Ellis doesn't have the sophomore jinx

This was an excellent novel and one that keeps you guessing with twists and turns that, upon reflection, are quite plausible. With about three hours to go I thought I had the conclusion completely figured out. I didn't. Throughout the book you're not sure whether you should root for or against Marty. You're not sure if you like him or not. The quick cuts in time sequences might at times cause some confusion for the listener, but the confusion clears up as the monologue progresses. Writing from a single point of view worked better than I anticipated and I think Ellis pulled it off as well as it could have been done. Dick Hill did his usual fine job of narration. This listen exceeded my expectations and I think it will do the same for many.
