    For the first time in unabridged audio! A small Kansas town has turned into a killing ground. Is it a serial killer, a man with the need to destroy? Or is it a darker force, a curse upon the land? Amid golden cornfields, FBI Special Agent Pendergast discovers evil in the blood of America's heart.

    Story

    this novel was the best suspense audio book that I have listened to this year. If I could give it 6 stars, I would. The plot was well written, twisting and turning, keeping you on the edge of your seat...never boring...the characters were well developed and the descriptive powers of Preston and Childs brought everything to life for me....i.e. after the turkey packing plant description, I'm not sure if I'll ever eat turkey again! I had a clear picture in my mind of the whole setting and happenings. The narrator, Scott Brick was also excellent. I never got tired of his voice and he performed all the characters without flaw. If you are looking for a unique detective story that keeps you listening until the wee hours of the night, then this is the book for you. This is how all audio books should be!
    enjoy!

    One question, a split-second decision, and Brian Darby lies dead on the kitchen floor. His wife, state police trooper Tessa Leoni, claims to have shot him in self-defense, and bears the bruises to back up her tale. For veteran detective D. D. Warren it should be an open-and-shut case. But where is their six-year-old daughter? As the homicide investigation ratchets into a frantic statewide search for a missing child, D. D. Warren must partner with former lover Bobby Dodge to break through the blue wall of police brotherhood, seeking to understand the inner workings of a trooper’s mind while also unearthing family secrets.

    Molly says: "Keeps you guessing all the way through!"
    "hold on tight!"
    Overall

    wow! what a story...I couldn't put this down. Lisa Gardner will now be on my list of favorite authors. I already liked Kirsten Potter's narrating skills from Tami Hoag's novels, and Katie MacNichol did a great job also. I had read another reviewer that was disappointed in the narration but I did not find that to be true for me. The plot is twisting and captivating. I never knew who did it until the very end! wonderful job ladies! very entertaining!

    Why we think it’s a great listen: The most celebrated performance in all of Audible’s history, The Help has nearly 2,000 5-star reviews from your fellow listeners. We hear the print book’s not bad, either. In pitch-perfect voices, Kathryn Stockett creates three extraordinary women whose determination to start a movement of their own forever changes a town, and the way women - mothers, daughters, caregivers, friends - view one another.

    Jan says: "What a great surprise!"
    "storytelling at it's finest!"
    Overall

    this was the first time that I've used an audio book and I have to say that I was thoroughly entertained! the story line was excellent and the narration was excellent. I could not put my ipod down and this book was many hours long...the story was set in jackson mississippi in the 1960s. it was told from a perspective of the black maids who worked for the white families of that time....it made me laugh, it made me cry, it made me think, and in the end, it gave me hope that maybe we could rise above black and white and treat each other with respect...
