    Rafaella Holland, a Pulitzer Prize winner, now a journalist for the Boston Tribune, discovers from her comatose mother’s journals that her "real" father is Dominick Giovanni, a wealthy, very powerful arms dealer who lives and runs his operations from his own private island compound in the Caribbean. She wants revenge for what he did to her mother. She wants to gather enough proof to send him to prison for the rest of his miserable life. Marcus Devlin manages the resort on Giovanni’s Island, a private playground for the wealthy and powerful. He’s very good at what he does, but Rafaella wonders if he’s really what he seems.

    Story
    Is there anything you would change about this book?

    Different readers - the women did terrible men's voices - completely took away from the reading of the book.


    Would you recommend Moonrise to your friends? Why or why not?

    No - because of the terrible narrative


    Would you be willing to try another one of the narrators’s performances?

    Would be the reason not to read it.


    If this book were a movie would you go see it?

    NO


    Any additional comments?

    Very disappointing
