This is no accident. This is murder.
Justin Westwood moved to East End Harbor to escape a dark, disturbing past, and to lead a quiet life. He had retreated from reality by taking a menial post with a small-town Long Island police department, drowning his troubles in mindless traffic duty and lots of booze. Now his dormant professionalism is awakened after Susanna's brutal murder. This is just the kind of reality check that Justin needs, and he will stop at nothing to get to the bottom of this madness - to find the meaning of the mysterious "Aphrodite" - and maybe save himself in the process.

I really enjoyed this book.....I didn't think I would, but the Narrator has a very soothing voice and the story line was wonderful. It was refreshing to listen to something different for a change. Two thumbs up for me....I plan on listening to some more of this series.
Didn't expect much of this impulsive purchase, but ended up loving the book and the narrator. Sorry Mr. Schirner, but at first your voice irritated me, then by chapter 3, I fell in love with the way you intoned all the characters. I let myself be enjoyably tossed around by the author, not trying to figure out the conclusion, and I loved all the twists and turns and unexpected revelations. Fun stuff for those of us who love government conspiracy theories.
Liked the characters. Hated the plot. When I started to realize where the story was going, I couldn't believe it. Yep. It went there. Ruined an otherwise interesting listen.
Don't know what I want to be when I grow up. Trip's cool though. Use Audible to make gym-training sane... And rip my imagination.
Justin Westwood's a cop-of-mystery. Russell Andrews plots like a surgeon... And this operation's a successful procedure. The author's thought about how to make a mystery, mysterious. And he's commercial enough to add the sort of characters that movie goers expect. Hey... why over think... I liked it and Buck Shirner's read's perfect. I'll buy more from both of them.
I know from whence I speak.
Decent story but the narrator has an especially deep voice and he reads slow. Made me sleepy. I upped the speed on my iPod and it was a little easier to listen to. That said, if you like this author, this is hardly a reason to avoid the book.
I thought the writer was awesome and engaging. The narrator was areally good as well, but I couldn't deal with all the bad language. I guess I will have to stick with Young Adult fiction.
A really fascinating thriller from beginning to end. Had to make sure i was paying attention so I didn't miss any of the details. Scary to think about the collusion of government and "big" science.
Love to listen to historical fiction, paranormal, romance, and general fiction while commuting. Audiobooks help make the drive bearable!
I didn't guess most of the "aha" moments - I like that in thriller novels.
Possibly John Grisham books...this isn't a legal thriller, but some of the plot and characters are Grisham-esque.
This was my first one, I certainly enjoyed it.
When the hero thought or spoke about his former life. I found these scenes to be pretty powerful.
The story plot was somewhat predictable but it was nice to figure out how it was going to play out. I didn't always spot what was coming, as some reviewers indicated, but the characters were interesting.
USPS MAIL CARRIER, WALKING 6-8 MILES DAILY, AUDIO BOOKS MAKE ME ENJOY MY WORKDAY
yes, the narrator made this audio worth listening too, he brought the book alive. I do believe i would have put it down if i had to read it
the freaking story line was great, the characters were even better.
when Justin Westbrook decided to revisit the crime scene and discovered more than he really wanted
Bad cops are good Too
I paid $5.00 for one of the best crime books I've purchased on Audible, and $20.00 for ones that should have cost me FREE
