Publisher's Summary

Internationally best-selling author Jeffery Deaver delivers the latest sensational thriller in his wildly popular Kathryn Dance series. Newsweek calls Jeffery Deaver a "suspense superstar", and in his new novel, he lives up to the accolades once again as he sets his heroine Kathryn Dance on a quest to stop an obsessive stalker from destroying a beautiful young country singer.
Kayleigh Towne is gorgeous with a voice that is taking her to the heights of the country pop charts. Her hit single "Your Shadow" puts her happily in the spotlight, until an innocent exchange with one of her fans leads Kayleigh into a dark and terrifying realm. The fan warns, "I'm coming for you," and soon accidents happen and people close to Kayleigh die. Special Agent Kathryn Dance must use her considerable skills at investigation and body language analysis to stop the stalker - but before long she learns that, like many celebrities, Kayleigh has more than just one fan with a mission.
A former folksinger, Deaver has written the actual song "Your Shadow." Listeners will be able to download it from his website, JefferyDeaver.com.

Deaver has done much better

What did you like best about XO? What did you like least?

There was some good suspense in the book. But I thought there were too many plot twists. I kept thinking, really, again? I'm willing to suspend reality, but this bordered on the absurd. I felt like at least one of the plot twists was so that the author could express political views. We're bombarded enough with political views and I don't find it entertaining.

How would you have changed the story to make it more enjoyable?

One or two less plot twists. Also, having read Deaver books, the lists of forensic details come across well in print, but tend to really drag on in audiobook. Perhaps find a way not to read the lists multiple times and still remain true to the unabridged story.

Would you be willing to try another one of Marin Ireland’s performances?

I wasn't a fan. No.

Was XO worth the listening time?

I'll give this an unenthusiastic, I guess.

Don't waste a credit!

Being a huge fan of the murder mystery genre and reading/listening to hundreds in my lifetime I was very disappointed with the story. I have read Mr. Deaver before and find him to be a smart, engaging writer. The character's actions were simplistic and not believable and I found the actions of the police and Agent Dance so laughable that I actually went back to check if there was a co author. Jeffrey Deaver has many books that are worth your while. This is not one of them.
