    Andy Barber has been an assistant district attorney in his suburban Massachusetts county for more than 20 years. He is respected in his community, tenacious in the courtroom, and happy at home with his wife, Laurie, and son, Jacob. But when a shocking crime shatters their New England town, Andy is blindsided by what happens next: his 14-year-old son is charged with the murder of a fellow student.

    The book was well written and compellingly performed, a good mix of thrill and emotion. Though there is definitely something for everyone in this book, I didn't ever feel like I couldn't put it down. There was little suspense, though the ending was unpredictable. Good, easy listen! Definitely recommend it!

    Readers everywhere have become entranced by the New York Times best-selling No. 1 Ladies' Detective Agency series, from acclaimed author and award-winning wit Alexander McCall Smith. Each charming book in the series is a masterpiece of comic subtlety and a window for viewing the distinctive culture and landscape of Botswana.

    After reading several mixed reviews about this series, it seems that readers either love it or hate it. Because I purchased the book for only $4.95, I can come to terms with the fact that I hate it. Literally nothing happens. At one point towards the end of the first part, the ladies debate whether what they are talking about actually matters. Spoiler alert: it doesn't. There is no plot progression at all! The narration was beautiful and accurate but it's a shame the text wasn't as riveting as the performer's accent.
