All for One: A Thriller | [Ryne Douglas Pearson]

All for One: A Thriller

Mary Austin is the kind of teacher that parents adore and children wish for. Firm and compassionate, a guiding light in their lives, she would do anything to protect her students. But that loyalty is tested when the school's sadistic bully is found dead on campus and suspicion falls on six children in her class, none willing to talk, point the finger, or reveal the killer. Faced with this, Mary finds herself confronted with dark memories from her own childhood.

Publisher's Summary

The darkest secrets we keep even from ourselves...

Mary Austin is the kind of teacher that parents adore and children wish for. Firm and compassionate, a guiding light in their lives, she would do anything to protect her students. But that loyalty is tested when the school's sadistic bully is found dead on campus and suspicion falls on six children in her class, none willing to talk, point the finger, or reveal the killer.

Faced with this, Mary finds herself confronted with dark memories from her own childhood. Fragmentary flashes of scenes from the past begin to test the bounds of her reality. With the onslaught worsening, a tenacious detective is brought in to close the case.

On loan from the Seattle Police Department, Detective Dooley Ashe is plagued by his own demons, but focuses on breaking through the wall of silence the children have erected. Up against a town indifferent toward the crime and suspects virtually untouchable by the law, Dooley turns to Mary as an avenue to the truth.

As an unlikely closeness develops between Dooley and Mary, the suspected children close ranks, worried that one of their own is ready to break and give the detective what he wants. But when unseen adversaries push back, with both damaging and deadly results, Dooley and Mary are forced to face their personal limits as they each discover the unthinkable identity of the real killer.

    "Speed Reading!"
    What disappointed you about All for One?

    The narrator read much too fast. Audio books are to be enjoyed in a relaxed manner.


    Would you be willing to try another book from Ryne Douglas Pearson? Why or why not?

    Perhaps


    How could the performance have been better?

    Slow Down!!


    Any additional comments?

    Sadly, I didn't finish this book as it wasn't enjoyable to listen to.

    "The narrator speaks too quickly!"
    Is there anything you would change about this book?

    I listened to maybe 15-20 minutes of the book and could not listen to any more. The narrator read the material too quickly, with VERY short break between sentences. The performance seemed incredibly rushed as if there were a hard time limit that could not be extended. The performance was like this on both my iPod and my PC.

    I did fast forward to a later part of the book and the same rapid reading was still occurring.

    I do NOT recommend this version of the book. Try a printed version instead.


    How could the performance have been better?

    Slower reading with breaks between sentences.

    Story
    "I lLOVE this audiobook!"
    Would you listen to All for One again? Why?

    Yes. The story is absolutely fantastic. The narrator does a wonderful job voicing the kids. The story gets pretty dark and thankfully there's just a few moments of sheer terror. Just enough to give weight to the drama through the entire book.


    Which character – as performed by Jorjeana Marie – was your favorite?

    Joey Bryce and PJ. I wanna hug them all. Jorjeana does a great job bringing them to life.


    Any additional comments?

    I highly recommend this book to anyone who loves a thriller with great characters. Halfway through, the mystery was becoming very clear to me and it was a lot of fun listening to how the story unfolded. The characters are great and the narrator does an excellent job as a compelling storyteller. Great purchase!
