Publisher's Summary

Hours after 22-year-old Brett Allen finds her boyfriend brutally slain, she finds herself in police custody, the prime suspect. Her aunt, Caroline Masters, is summoned to act as her defense attorney. The result is a painful meeting with Brett, whom Caroline has not seen since infancy, and a confrontation with 3 people from whom she is deeply estranged: her first lover who is now the prosecutor, her half-sister, and most difficult of all, her domineering father. The story moves quickly now, opening into the police investigation and the courtroom. Yet the truths about herself and her family that Caroline ultimately uncovers are painful beyond the deepest doubts and shocking beyond the deepest fears that haunt her adult life - and make up the explosive core of the author's most powerful novel to date.

audible is dishonest

This book advertises as a 5 hr book, but is actually less than 3 hours. At 2hrs 55min, it ends and reloops to about 56min and plays again. It is a total rip-off and I am ashamed of audible. I would not have ordered this book had I known how shady this was.

The making of Caroline Masters

Great suspenseful James Patterson romp through the courthouse and the lives of Caroline Master's friends, family and all she left behind. What drives her to become the careerist she becomes is revealed in the twists of this murder case, a case that only Caroline can unravel. The pieces all fit nicely in the end , one which you may not see coming in exactly the way it does. That's rewarding enough in itself to entice a mystery reader, but the characters and verisimilitude of the legal work are an equally good draw. Highly recommended.
