Publisher's Summary

Melanie Starks has never lived life by the rules. She and her 17-year-old son, Charlie, have been running one con job or another for as long as she can remember, justifying the petty crimes as the necessary survival moves of a single mother. But Melanie is ready to give it up. Then Jared Barnett reappears in her life. Fresh out of prison after serving five years of a life sentence for murder, Jared is released on a technicality that by no means proves his innocence. And he's feeling more invincible than ever. He has the perfect plan for a big score, and he needs Melanie's help. But everything goes terribly wrong. Only one thing is clear: a line has been crossed. Suddenly there's no turning back, and there is nothing left to lose.

Four words...

...Most annoying narrator ever. Her scratchy voice, her intonation, the way she reads dialog, the way she reads narrative... In other words, everything. She's like nails on a chalkboard to me. She doesn't do different voices, ie. she's not an actor. She's a reader and not a good one. Everything and everybody sounds the same: horrible. I tried. I actually am interested in the story, but I only managed 30 minutes. I'll have to buy the book, which I'll probably never do, so that's unfortunate.

We loved this book, my husband and I. We listened to it while on the road and thoroughly enjoyed it. The time just flew. I thought the reader did a pretty good job!
