    Christy Award winner Robert Whitlow’s legal thrillers draw favorable comparisons to the works of best-selling author John Grisham. Here, Tammy Taylor, a young law student working for a firm in Savannah, becomes immersed in a deadly conspiracy. After Tammy learns dark secrets about her client, her continuing investigation uncovers sinister truths about her superiors as well.

    What disappointed you about Deeper Water?

    If you want evangelical and Christian legal novels, this will be great for you. If not, read a fuller review than what Audible provides.

    In a quiet suburb of New Jersey, a 12-year-old-girl returns from Christmas vacation and finds an unopened gift at her front door. In the excitement and exuberance of a young child, she opens it. The early evening is shattered as the gift explodes and begins a tangled search for the person who would send this destructive present. Suddenly, other devises show up at a shopping mall in New Jersey, the Holland Tunnel in New York, and the home of the Mayor in a nearby town.

    Would you try another book from James Twerell and/or James Twerell?

    This book was unbearable to hear. I won't listen to another book by Mr. Twerell


    What do you think your next listen will be?

    I haven't decided yet, but it will certainly be narrated by a professional reader.


    How could the performance have been better?

    The author/reader chronically mispronounced words. His speech was often garbled and uneven and his affect was flat and unpleasant. He stumbled over words and the pauses in his reading were very distracting


    What reaction did this book spark in you? Anger, sadness, disappointment?

    I have listened to thousands of Audio books and this is one of maybe ten or twelve that I have not been able to finish. It was a waste of a credit.

But the kidnapper, a sociopath known as the "I-90 Killer," escapes and vows revenge, targeting Ferguson's own daughter as his next victim. Now one terrified father must unravel a plot that may go much deeper than he realizes, racing against time to save his only child from an unthinkable fate.

    What would have made The Lonely Mile better?

    The narration was appalling, full of mispronounciations and hesitations. Siri would have done better. The novel's plotting, characterization and dialogue were all thin, boring and transparent.


    Would you be willing to try another one of Basil Sands’s performances?

    NO.
