    Clara Solberg's world shatters when her husband and their four-year-old daughter are in a car crash, killing Nick while Maisie is remarkably unharmed. The crash is ruled an accident - until the coming days, when Maisie starts having night terrors that make Clara question what really happened on that fateful afternoon. Tormented by grief and her obsession that Nick's death was far more than just an accident, Clara is plunged into a desperate hunt for the truth.

    Story

    About a third through I started skipping Clara's chapters and listened only to Nick's. Clara was so tedious and extremely unlikable. Toward the end, I thought the author was writing her as a sociopath deliberately and she'd end up in jail, which would have been brilliant. But I was disappointed. It was tedious and frustrating, and I usually enjoy this author. I recommend skipping this one.

    Anna Fox lives alone - a recluse in her New York City home, unable to venture outside. She spends her day drinking wine (maybe too much), watching old movies, recalling happier times...and spying on her neighbors. Then the Russells move into the house across the way: a father, mother, their teenaged son. The perfect family. But when Anna, gazing out her window one night, sees something she shouldn't, her world begins to crumble. And its shocking secrets are laid bare.

    I expected so much more but I couldn't even finish it. Dragged on and on and on.

    Professor Theo Cray is trained to see patterns where others see chaos. So when mutilated bodies found deep in the Montana woods leave the cops searching blindly for clues, Theo sees something they missed. Something unnatural. Something only he can stop. As a computational biologist, Theo is more familiar with digital code and microbes than the dark arts of forensic sleuthing. But a field trip to Montana suddenly lands him in the middle of an investigation into the bloody killing of one of his former students.

    Story

    I couldn't stop listening. The narrator did a great job, and the story was original and interesting, with a lot of facts thrown in. If I had one complaint, it'd be I'd like to have had a little more wrapping up at the end - find out what happened to the two main characters especially. Maybe I just didn't want it to end!

    A single mother turns up dead at the bottom of the river that runs through town. Earlier in the summer, a vulnerable teenage girl met the same fate. They are not the first women lost to these dark waters, but their deaths disturb the river and its history, dredging up secrets long submerged. Left behind is a lonely 15-year-old girl. Parentless and friendless, she now finds herself in the care of her mother's sister, a fearful stranger who has been dragged back to the place she deliberately ran from - a place to which she vowed she'd never return.

    Perhaps in printed format this would be a good book. I had high hopes for it but couldn’t stick with it through the first chapter. Too much going on, lost me; almost painful so I gave it up and returned to Audible through their amazing return policy.
