Publisher's Summary

24 Hours begins with the perfect family...on the perfect day...about to become trapped in the perfect crime.

Will Jennings is a successful young doctor in Jackson, Mississippi, with his whole life ahead of him. He has a thriving practice, a beautiful wife, and a young daughter he loves beyond measure.

But Will and his family are being watched by a con man and psychopath. A man who has crafted the unbeatable crime. A man who has never been caught, and whose victims have never talked to the police. A man whose life's work strikes at the heart of every family's nightmare: the unstoppable kidnapping.

But this man has never met Will and Karen Jennings.

    I was an avid reader of books before my work took most of my time so now I listen to Audible books when I'm exercising or walking my dog. I like mystery and thriller novels, particularly good serial killer novels. I'm a writer and a psychotherapist.

    "Not developed enough"

    It's a good story with plenty of twists and I certainly wouldn't downgrade it to a three but nothing gets developed enough to make this a five star, not the characters, the story, or the ending, which just ends when there are a lot more things that could be answered instead of left hanging. What happens to the good guy for instance and his relationship with the girl? It's a longer story condensed into a fairly long story. Also, the bad guy deserves a lot more bad instead of the abrupt ending.

    "Very different kidnapping plot"
    Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?

    I really enjoyed my first Iles book. Kidnapping plots generally follow a common script. This one was very different - kidnappers as businessmen, very dispassionate, we'll thought-out business plan. It had me guessing and reguessing what would happen next. My lone criticism: the plot was a a bit surreal toward the end - not totally unbelievable (like the end of Dan Brown's Angels and Demons with the most unlikely chopper pilot), but it stretched the limits of plausibility.

    "24 Hours"
    Have you listened to any of Dick Hill’s other performances before? How does this one compare?

    This was my first Dick Hill performance and he did nothing to discourage me from listening again.


    Did you have an extreme reaction to this book? Did it make you laugh or cry?

    As a husband and father this book definitely has its moments that make you think about being in Dr. Jennings shoes and just how you would react in the same circumstances.

    "A Surprise read!"

    Even though the synopsis of the book's plot had me thinking it would be predictable if you are a constant reader of "whodunits" and thrillers, the offer of 3 for 2 credits had me hooked to picking a third book. This was the 3rd choice and it turned out to be the best read of the 3. Even though it was a little predictable, it was well performed and had some exciting twists that keeps you involved in the plot and the characters. Overall, it was very entertaining and that's just what I became a recorded book reader for...entertainment and the ability to do every day menial tasks while keeping my mind busy and entertained! This book will do that for you!

    "not believable"

    This book just had too many scenes that have you shaking your head, saying why would anyone do this? Loved True Evil and Mortal Fear, but this one just wasn't in the same catagory

    "Excellent read!"

    Mary Ellen must be smoking something something if she thinks this one wasn't good. This was an excellent book. Action packed from the first page through the last one. Well worth one credit.

    "Don't bother"

    What a disappointment this book is! Girl kidnapped; mother panics; father panics; kidnappers run...and run...parents chase...Well, that is the story and now you don't have to waste a credit on it. Not at all clever and totally predictable. (and I am generally an Iles fan!)

    "Nail Biter"

    Great story that keeps you on the edge of your seat with a truly hate-able villian. Great story line with main characters you respect, like, and want to win!
