    Story
    (29)

    In and out of hospitals since birth, angelic nine-month-old Morgan Reid finally succumbed to what appeared to be Sudden Infant Death Syndrome. Morgan's Texas-born mother Tanya, a nurse and devoted wife, pulled up stakes with her grieving husband Jim, and moved on. It was the best way to put the past behind them. Until their son Michael, a boy who by all accounts was terrified of his mother, began showing signs of the same affliction that stole the life of his baby sister.

    Story
    What would have made Cruel Deception better?

    Monitoring of the recording process and post-recording editing. Chapter 2 is a disgrace with pauses, repeated false starts, sniffles, throat clearings, etc.


    Did the plot keep you on the edge of your seat? How?

    Not exactly, but it's not that kind of book.


    Would you be willing to try another one of Christy Lynn’s performances?

    Possibly, but it might be a long time.


    You didn’t love this book... but did it have any redeeming qualities?

    I like true crime stories and this probably would have been considerably more enjoyable with a male narrator.


    Any additional comments?

    Personally, I think that this title should be withdrawn; at least, until it can be brought up to snuff technically. I've never had a worse experience reading an audio book (and since I'm blind, I've been doing it all my life) than trying to get through Chapter 2. Didn't *anybody* validate the work before it was released?
