Publisher's Summary

A loving father and his new wife set out to pick up his kids for a scheduled weekend visit-but never suspected they were walking into a death trap. A handwritten note instructed Alan and Terra Bates to enter the back door of his ex-wife's Alabama home. A day later their charred bodies were found hundreds of miles away, wrapped in blankets, in a burned-out car's trunk on a desolate Georgia road. At Jessica McCord's house, law enforcement officials found windows covered in blankets, a cache of weapons and ammunition, carpets torn up, new tile on the floors, and the couch missing. Then they learned about the nasty divorce and bitter custody battle that had landed Jessica in jail. Along with her new police officer husband, Jessica became the prime suspect in this brutal double murder.

Way too long and predictable!

Would you recommend this book to a friend? Why or why not?

Not sure.

What was your reaction to the ending? (No spoilers please!)

No spoilers then.

Have you listened to any of Kevin Foley’s other performances before? How does this one compare?

Yes, he's great!

Do you think Death Trap needs a follow-up book? Why or why not?

Definitely not, no way! Why would it?

Any additional comments?

This is more like tabloid crime. It's so ridiculously long and you know all the answers way before the end. Really not worth the time.

Felt the book was the real death trap

What would have made Death Trap better?

This book seems like it was written in rapid speed just to get another book out there for us true crime lovers. It started with the crime and then bounced back and forth about characters background to the point of confusion. Half of it contains fillers to take up time and space, repetitive and predictable. Nothing special for the victims either, just left them out there. A true disappointment from this author.

Has Death Trap turned you off from other books in this genre?

Absolutely not.

What does Kevin Foley bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?

He brings some life to a very dull, repetitive and boring book. He is one of the better narrators.

If you could play editor, what scene or scenes would you have cut from Death Trap?

If I could play editor I would of handed the manuscript back and suggested he start over. Yes, sadly it's that bad!

Any additional comments?

I want my credit back!
