Publisher's Summary

Winner of Readers Digest Novel of the Year Award, 2011
Signal 30, the police designation for crime scene with extreme or imminent emergency, is a riveting mystery about the intricacies of a major crime investigation filled with the terror of unpredictable and insane serial bomber.
In a quiet suburb of New Jersey, a 12-year-old-girl returns from Christmas vacation and finds an unopened gift at her front door. In the excitement and exuberance of a young child, she opens it. The early evening is shattered as the gift explodes and begins a tangled search for the person who would send this destructive present. Suddenly, other devises show up at a shopping mall in New Jersey, the Holland Tunnel in New York, and the home of the Mayor in a nearby town.
Detective Shane Murphy, senior officer with Special Case Investigations, is thrown into the maze of confusion as he attempts to sort out the facts before the perpetrator strikes again. While his personal life crumbles around him, as his wife informs him of her decision to pursue a divorce, Murphy finds assistance with the arrival of Stacy Landou, a Special Agent with Alcohol, Tobacco and Firearms. The case becomes more complicated when the local press begins to hound Murphy and suggests he is failing in his investigation. With Shane's career, marriage, and reputation seemingly out of control, the bomber continues to move one-step ahead of the investigation.

Couldn’t stop listening - lost a night of sleep!

Would you listen to Signal 30 again? Why?

Yes, loved the story. Able to visualize the characters and have a movie in my head. Twerell is a good story teller even if he is not a professional narrator. I like it when the author reads the his/her story as it seems more authentic.

What was one of the most memorable moments of Signal 30?

Can’t say or it would give away the story but the opening with the little girl was very real and caught me immediately.

Which character – as performed by James Twerell – was your favorite?

Shawn Murphy - a real depiction of a dedicated cop. Twerell must have been part of investigations sometime in his history.

Was there a moment in the book that particularly moved you?

When Shawn found his wife and children gone

Any additional comments?

Twerell is a great writer but not professional narrator. Nevertheless, I did love his voice. Bought the book last night and stayed up way too late finishing it. It was worth the loss of sleep.
