    When the family-owned furniture firm, including the mansion where priceless antiques are kept, explodes into flames in the middle of the night, Kate must escape to save her life. But the suspicious circumstances point to her involvement. Was the explosion set deliberately? Why was Kate, a gorgeous CPA for one of the biggest accounting firms in the country, on the premises at that hour? And why was Gus, a retired and trusted employee, with her?

    Where does Daddy's Gone A Hunting rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?

    This one has been very suspenseful.


    What did you like best about this story?

    When I thought the story was going a certain way, it twisted and turned and the ending caught me by surprise.


    Have you listened to any of Jan Maxwell’s other performances before? How does this one compare?

    I have not listened to Jan Maxwell before. She is very captivating.


    Was there a moment in the book that particularly moved you?

    The thoughts of the injured party while she lay in a coma.


    Any additional comments?

    As I traveled across country by car and was listening to this book oblivious to the incredible storm warnings around me. I was so captivated and in retrospect, I am glad I wasn't worried, just annoyed by the rain.

Or, more precisely, a Buick. And though the driver's identity remains a mystery, his or her murderous intentions are all too clear.

    Story
    What could have made this a 4 or 5-star listening experience for you?

    Building up the characters, and the gaps in the story made this story maddening to figure out. The children's characters and opinions in the story would have made this story more believable. The author seemed to skip an opportunity to blend all the characters and make it believable.The narration seemed whiney and monotone which made it difficult to follow.+


    Would you ever listen to anything by Mary Higgins Clark again?

    maybe


    What didn’t you like about Carol Higgins Clark’s performance?

    whiney, monotone


    What character would you cut from A Cry in the Night?

    none
