A winner of the Golden Gateway, Readers’ Choice, and Daphne du Maurier awards, CJ Lyons writes relationship-focused suspense novels under the apt banner “Thrillers with Heart”.
After the deranged lunatic who murdered Sarah Durandt’s husband and son is executed, Sarah returns to her home in the Adirondacks in hopes of achieving some measure of closure. But once there, Sarah is forced to face a nightmarish possibility. The wrong man may have been sent to his death, and the killer of her loved ones may be hunting for a new victim.

The ending was somewhat, well really unbelievable ,but think as previously noted the Lifetime Movie comparison.
yes it was worth listening to. The book was entertaining which helped reduce the strain of long drives. It definitely will not win any awards for fine literature but it does have its place for when you just want " a story"- think Lifetime Movies. One disappointment was the use of made up Adirondack places/names. It would have been nice to have used some "real" mountain names.
An avid listener of mystery/suspense and a few others tossed in the mix.
A solid story that never got boring. I usually listen to more intense Mystery-type books; but I was pleased to hear this book. It had just enough suspense but also good characters and storyline. I especially appreciate it when an author can create a relationship between two people without having to be sexually graphic or low-minded. I'll read more of this author and narrator.
Way too many people with secrets and lies for a town of 486! Most of the characters were far fetched, but if you could get passed that, the action was okay. Crooked sheriff, crooked FBI man, mob boss all came together in a fight over crooked money. A couple of the "crookeds" being left out could have made this better.
FBI female character, Caitlyn Tierney, upon whom the series is based, had only a fairly minor role.
Narration was fine although I sometimes had difficulty realizing when the conversations changed to different places or people.
