STORY (legal suspense) - George says he didn't kill his daughter, but no one has listened to him for almost two decades...until he meets Dani. She must race against the clock -- and the legal system -- to prove his innocence and safe his life. And if the girl's body isn't George's daughter, who is she?
The story is set in New York and Indiana, and the crime being investigated happened many years ago before DNA evidence was widely used. (In other words, this case would be simple to unravel today). Nevertheless, I thoroughly enjoyed this book. It's just mysterious and suspenseful enough to entertain, but not so much that I was stressed out trying to keep thing straight. The listener will be part of the criminal investigation process as Dani tries to figure out who the dead girl is and who killed her, as well as Dani's efforts as an attorney to plead George's case.
PERFORMANCE - Good job.
OVERALL - This is a good book for everyone, as there is no sex or bad language. It is Book 1 of a series, but it stands alone. I will be continuing with the series.

If you could sum up Unintended Consequences in three words, what would they be?
I can sum it up in one word, "Intense."
What other book might you compare Unintended Consequences to and why?
"The Chamber" or "The Innocent Man" both by John Grisham, because of the intense anxiety that you feel for the legal team, and the defendant (The Chamber). In addition to these feelings you can't help but feel anger and frustration toward the legal system willing to execute a man without a sense of justice behind it (The Innocent Man).
What about Tanya Eby’s performance did you like?
You hear the voice of each character. As a listener Eby allows you to hear the thoughts, emotions, priorities, and sensations of each and every character. Eby transitions so well you don't always realize that you only have one professional narrator. She is absolutely amazing.
Was there a moment in the book that particularly moved you?
When George is telling the story of what really happened to his daughter, I was driving down the interstate. It was necessary for me to take a moment and remind myself that this story is a fictional story. It was nothing happening to anyone I know or love. This was the only way to keep from crying while driving down the road.
Any additional comments?
The book wasn't even over when I was searching Marti Green to see if there was a sequel to this book. I was nearly bereft at the thought of losing any contact with these characters. Sounds a bit dramatic doesn't it? Well, so it is. But I have read the Harry Potter novels over and over because I just can't say good bye to people I have learned to like and respect without a fight.<br/><br/>For the record, this is a debut novel. There are no additional writings by this author at this time. I seriously hope I will hear more from Marti Green.
