Publisher's Summary

Susanna Miller loses custody of her 11-month-old son, Tyler, but rather than turning the little boy over to her ex-husband and his new wife, she goes on the run. She dyes her hair, changes her name and escapes from Boulder, Colorado, leaving behind everyone she knows, including Linc Sebastian, the man who has been her best friend since childhood and who knows her better than anyone. Susanna lands in Annapolis, Maryland, alone, frightened, and always looking over her shoulder for someone who might recognize her. Just as she's beginning to feel safe in her new surroundings, she stumbles across information that could save the lives of many people...if she's willing to take it to the police. But going to the authorities means revealing her identity, admitting her guilt, and worst of all, losing her son.
Equal parts family drama, love story, and thriller, The Escape Artist is the poignant story of a mother's unbreakable bond with her child and the resiliency of a love that transcends distance and time.

Great story -- horrible narrator

What did you like best about The Escape Artist? What did you like least?

The story was interesting and entertaining. I wanted to know what was going to happen, so, I trudged through the horrible narration. Her portrayal of the African American woman had me wondering if she was reading it in white face!

The story was dated and I enjoyed the references to 90's computer phenomena.

How did the narrator detract from the book?

Oy. Her voice is like nails on chalkboards. (Plural!)

Did The Escape Artist inspire you to do anything?

It inspires me to not listen to anything narrated by Coleen Marlo.

Not quite vintage Chamberlain

...and terrible narration. A disappointing book. Not quite what I am used to from Chamberain.
