In a story that moves back and forth across the decades, there is only one person who dares to be skeptical of a woman who wants to claim the identity of one Bethany sister without revealing the fate of the other. Will he be able to discover the truth?
"An uncommonly clever impostor story, so cagily constructed that it easily fulfills the genre's two basic demands. First, Ms. Lippman is able to keep her reader guessing about the main character's disputed identity until the very end of this book. Second, when the revelation comes, it makes perfect sense, and it has been hiding in plain sight. This is not one of those mysteries with a denouement that feels tacked on, half baked or pulled out of thin air." (The New York Times)

Worth it indeed!
I thought this was an exceptionally good audiobook. Great, fascinating plot that grips you, fascinating characters, excellent narration. Yes, you should be prepared to go back and forth in time, as you can tell from the book description, but it always marks a time change with a new chapter and/or music that breaks it up, and I did not find it difficult to follow at all. Very highly recommended.

A page turner
As a photographer, I spend long hours editing photos at my computer and I need quick paced, story driven books to keep me working. As a long time Audible customer, I've learned to read reviews and try to narrow my choices to reads that meet that criteria. Despite my care, I've run across several recently that I simply couldn't get through.
So I was very happy when I came across "What the Dead Know." I thoroughly enjoyed the story and loved the pace of it. And, even as a long time thriller and mystery reader, it surprised me in the end.
