    Dmytryk Knight was a respectable man who had followed the blueprints for the American Dream: go to college, find the girl of your dreams, get married, buy a house on the affluent side of Detroit. He’d done it all by the book. But when a crippling recession annihilates the auto industry, Dmytryk and his wife, Cora, suddenly find themselves without jobs and in foreclosure. And after two years of taking any job they can find and trying to live honestly, they realize that integrity just doesn’t pay the bills.

    Overall

    I used to be an avid fan of Mr. Dickey's, but his last few books didn't grab me. I had given up, then decided to give this one a try. I was completely drawn in by the narrator's reading style, and I loved the way the characters evolved. The storyline wasn't formulaic, which was what was disappointed me about his previous works. Kept my rapt attention until the unexpected ending...great listen!

    Monica counts her blessings: she has a husband who is not only devoted to her but committed to being a strong, caring father to their twin sons. When Carlos surprises her with an unforgettably romantic getaway, Monica knows her husband is still very much in love with her—and she with him. But an unexpected package threatens to change everything Monica’s ever believed about her husband.

    "Wasted Credit..."
    Overall

    Reading all of the positive feedback, I was compelled to use a credit on an author with whom I am not familiar. Oh how I WISH I had made better use of that credit! The storyline was COMPLETELY unbelievable, yet totally predictable, and the characters one dimensional. I think what really ruined it for me, though, was the narrator's interpretation of the voices of the characters. Especially Carlos, whom she made sound like a caricature from a really bad 70's blaxploitation movie. The "sista gurl" vibe she tried to give Monica's best friend fell completely flat.
    I wouldn't waste the credit.
