    Willy Patrick, the author of the Caldecott-winning young-adult novel In the Night Room, thinks she is losing her mind again. Two weeks before her second marriage, on her way home one day, Willy is drawn into the parking lot of a warehouse. Knowing that her daughter, Holly, is being held in that building, she wants to rescue her. But what she knows is impossible, for her daughter is dead.

    "Disjointed"
    Overall

    I haven't actually picked up a Straub book to read in over 20 years. But whether it was the reader or the author, I couldn't stick with this more than 5 minutes without tuning it out. It seemed very disjointed and the reader talked like he was a semi-automatic so I didn't get a feel for anyone's character. I never made it beyond 30 minutes on this audio before giving up. Anyone out there think it's worth it for me to go further??
