Both the author and narrator were new to me. I found both to be very talented. This is a fast moving and intriguing story that had me hooked from the beginning. I loved the unexpected twists and turns this story had. I was voluntarily provided this review copy audiobook at no charge by the author, publisher and/or narrator.
A classic mystery/suspense thriller that keeps you guessing. Who thought the world of insurance fraud could ever be so cut throat. They meant to kidnap Special Agent Julia Jackson. They got the wrong person. Now it's up to Julia and her new partner Mark Vincent to figure out who is after her and why before they try again and get it right this time.
This is a great start to a series. It's an entertaining and enjoyable book from start to finish. The story pulls you in almost immediately and never lets go. The twists throughout the story keep you guessing. It's well written with an engaging storyline, plenty of suspense and a great cast of characters.
Really like that the connection between Julia and Mark is building slowly and naturally, not rushed and hurried. Looking forward to reading the rest of the series. More mystery's as well as seeing how things develop between Julia and Mark.
Heather Masters did a great job with the narration. This is the first time I have listened to her narrate a book. Nice voice. Easy to listen to for long periods of time. Clearly spoken with a smooth even pace. Really good character voices. Both male and female. You could always tell which character was speaking. Very enjoyable

I love audio books! I love to read and this opens up even more time to enjoy a good story.
I enjoyed listening to this audio book. Heather Masters does a wonderful job of reading this story and bringing the characters to life. The story is the first in this series and did a great job introducing and creating the characters. Leaving room for the characters to grow. Will look forward to more in this series. I was gifted this book with the understanding I would leave an honest review.
Read, listen, live
Good story and narration. Definitely held my interest with the different possibilities and the psyches of the suspects. I admit that, for me, hearing about the sister's unfortunate rape (a subject which is no laughing matter, ever) became tiresome by the end of the book..
The Narrators Performance! The Book Was Very Good And The Plot Was Outstanding And Action Packed!
*no spoiler alert here* But The Ending Was Exciting...
The Main Character... I Also Liked Trip...He Was Loyal..
The Entire Book Was Moving...How The Main Character Felt About The Abduction Knowing It Was Supposed To Be Her Made Other Incidents In The Book That Much More Compelling...

It makes me happy to wake up everyday and look forward to listening. Many times I listen while doing artwork. I find it very relaxing.
Absolute Liability was a great detective thriller. This had a sound storyline and likeable characters; especially the protagonist Julia. Vincent was a good supporting character as well. I love a find like this one. I liked the mystery and it wasn't too heavy with characters and plot. It kept me guessing too. I also liked the chapters with the antagonist's POV. I'll listen to more audiobooks written by J. W. Becton and Jennifer Becton.
I'll also listen to more audiobooks narrated by Heather Masters. Her performance was top-notch. She had perfect voice inflections and I always knew who was speaking without her having to change her voice. This is the kind of read I like to hear. She made this an overall excellent listen.

Absolute Liability: A Southern Fraud Thriller
: J.W. Becton
Could you imagine listening to the radio and hear that you have been abducted at gunpoint? That was what happened to insurance fraud investigator Julia Jackson. From there this fast paced suspense novel grabs the listener by the scruff of the neck and says hang on tight because the ride will be bumpy. An exciting storyline would not let me go to sleep until I finished. I am hoping that the issue with her sister's past is a hint of more to come.
The narration was well done.The characters were well portrayed. Heather Masters was great to listen to!
