    Jodi Picoult delivers the riveting tale of one small town's entanglement with high-school violence.

    New York Superior Court Judge Alex Cormier is assigned to preside over the case of the alleged Sterling High School shooter. Lawyer Jordan McAffee represents Peter, the boy who, on the day of the shooting, was found in the corner of the gymnasium holding a gun to his head with a shaky hand. Detective Patrick DuCharme has one star witness, but her story keeps changing. And then there's the biggest problem of all: the star witness happens to be Judge Cormier's daughter.

    What did you like best about this story?

    This was an interesting story.


    What did you like about the performance? What did you dislike?

    I've gotten used to Recorded Books recordings not being broken by chapter, which is irritating, but I'm used to it. However, with this particular recording I felt like I was missing pieces of it. It would change from one chapter to the next (one person's point of view to another's) without even a pause. It didn't even seem like a break between sentences.

    What does Cain, history's greatest villain, have to do with Superman, the world's greatest hero? And what do two murders, committed thousands of years apart, have in common? This is the mystery at the heart of Brad Meltzer's riveting and utterly intriguing new thriller.

    Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?

    Yes, it's a good story and a good narrator.


    Any additional comments?

    The rating isn't about Scott Brick. I'm a fan of his, and bought this because I've heard of the author, but mainly because he was the narrator. My main problem was the random music between odd chapters or when something got particularly "intense".. I think this is unnecessary and is likely a Hachette thing. But I don't care for it when it doesn't add anything (e.g., the story is based on music or a song or something).
