Publisher's Summary

Jesse Kellerman's debut thriller wowed the critics. His latest sets the bar even higher. Young, idealistic, and overworked, Jonah is living the lonely life of a medical student in New York City when he accidentally stumbles across a murder in progress: a woman, being stabbed to death in the middle of the sidewalk. Without thinking, he rushes in to protect her, inadvertently killing her attacker in the process. Thrust into the media spotlight, crushed by guilt, Jonah quickly learns that heroism isn't all it's cracked up to be. He receives a shower of unwanted attention and hostility from his superiors. The district attorney wants to "interview" him. The family of the dead man wants revenge. Everything is further upended when the woman whose life he saved shows up at his apartment. What begins as a thank-you drink turns into a wildly passionate love affair. As their relationship deepens, however, Jonah realizes that she isn't quite the woman she appears to be. His nightmare has only begun, and the price of kindness will turn out to be higher than he could have imagined. Expertly crafted and chillingly suspenseful, Trouble is a heart-stopper - proof positive that Jesse Kellerman has joined the "first ranks of mystery and suspense writers" (Forbes).


What the Critics Say

"Kellerman...shows that his impressive debut, Sunstroke, was no fluke with this gripping psychological page-turner that echoes the best of Hitchcock." (Publishers Weekly)

It sounded interesting and it had my favorite reader Scott Brick but I could not make it through the entire book. I quite at the close of book 1. I became more uncomfortable the longer I listened. The sexual violence described is not for everyone. It became torture to continue listening.

I kept skipping forward to try to find something interesting in this audiobook. I hated the graphic sex and the awful violence. I also had a hard time sympathizing with a man who would attack a woman, regardless of the provocation. I just can't enjoy a book when I am repulsed by the main character! I really couldn't find anything at all to like about him.

Pointless, endless, dreary ... don't trouble yourself! I'll hesitate before I get any more audiobooks by this author.
