Publisher's Summary

Some secrets can’t be kept. . . .
Years ago, they were all the best of friends. But as time passed and circumstances changed, they grew apart, became adults with families of their own, and began to forget about the past—and the terrible lie they all shared. But now Gordon, the youngest and wildest of the five, has died and the others are thrown together for the first time in years. And then the revelations start. Could their long-ago lie be the reason for their troubles today? Each one of these old friends has to wonder if their secret has been discovered—and if someone within the circle is out to destroy them.

Good Listen

The story moved fast and I really had no trouble keeping up with the characters. The book was above average but had some serious flaws with narration at times. There was a bit of a mystery element which made it fun and kept it moving. Some plot points never came to a resolution which is a bit frustrating but all in all worth a credit.

Don't waste 10 hours!

This book wasn’t for you, but who do you think might enjoy it more?

I listened to 10 hours of this book waiting for something to happen and nothing ever did. I quite listening so maybe something did happen but I felt cheated. I can't imagine what that title refers to. Most dangerous thing is that the characters were all crazy or dysfunctional.

What was most disappointing about Laura Lippman’s story?

Nothing ever happened.

If you could play editor, what scene or scenes would you have cut from The Most Dangerous Thing?
