    Couldn't follow the story. I restarted the book several times, but always find my mind wandering and not able to grasp what was happening. I'm not sure if it was the reader or the story itself. Finally gave up.

    When 13-year-old Jace Wilson witnesses a brutal murder, he's plunged into a new life, issued a false identity and hidden in a wilderness skills program for troubled teens. The plan is to get Jace off the grid while police find the two killers. The result is the start of a nightmare. The killers, known as the Blackwell Brothers, are slaughtering anyone who gets in their way in a methodical quest to reach him.

    Story

    It's no often that a book brings me to tears and this one did. After speeding through the book to get to the end, the book left me wanting to ponder over specific points and go back and read portions a 2nd time. I want to speculate on Jace's future and how the events in the story will impact his life. (Are we seeing the beginning of a series here?)

    The characters in the book are well developed and believable. The story is too. If you are looking for a book that will hold your interest and keep you thinking after you have finished, Those Who Wish Me Dead will do just that.

    For much of her life, Anne Morrow, the shy daughter of the U.S. ambassador to Mexico, has stood in the shadows of those around her, including her millionaire father and vibrant older sister, who often steals the spotlight. Then Anne, a college senior with hidden literary aspirations, travels to Mexico City to spend Christmas with her family. There she meets Colonel Charles Lindbergh, fresh off his celebrated 1927 solo flight across the Atlantic. Enthralled by Charles’s assurance and fame, Anne is certain the celebrated aviator has scarcely noticed her. But she is wrong.

    Story

    When I dislike a book on audio, my first thought is that the performance may have tainted my opinion. With that in mind, the Lindberg story is a great story. But, I longed for more of the sensational storyline less of Anne's perspective. Unfortunately, this story is just that, Anne's perspective. After so many hours of this book, one can predict how Anne is going to react and there are no surprises. Actually, there is one big surprise at the end. And, the ending saved the book for me. Otherwise, it would have been a one star rating from me. I have to believe that if this book were by Patterson or Grisham, it would be a thriller and one couldn't put it down. For me, I hardly made it through until the end.
