Something sinister is going down in the Big Easy: after his family disappears in the heart of the city, Matt O’Malley turns up at a truck stop with a concussion, unable to remember who attacked him or where his wife and two children are. As suspicions of his involvement ripple through his hometown, Matt tries desperately to piece together what happened.
Florida Omni Search founder Rachel Scott is determined to bring the rest of the O’Malley family home safely. But when a fisherman pulls a severed arm out of a muddy swamp, she knows the investigation needs to ramp up before the case takes an even grimmer turn. With partner Red Cooper, Rachel takes to the mysterious streets of New Orleans to uncover the truth. Along the way, she digs up a shocking revelation behind her own daughter’s disappearance - one that could alter the course of a grueling search that has spanned five long years.

I love espionage, legal, and detective thrillers but listen to most genres. Very frequent reviews. No plot spoilers! Please excuse my typos!
...in the Rachel Scott series. This interesting and entertaining private detective book is a quick listen. The novel is quite different from most private detective mysteries. My only complaint is the whiny voice of narrator Angela Dawe. The next book is the series uses a much better narrator. I just completed listening to this book. The plot is one I will long remember.
Sassy dialogue, humor, and a great reader are important to me.
This is a series, well done. Book #2 is missing, but Ok to listen what audible offers. The mystery builds, so if you listen out of order, you may spoil the plot for yourself if read out of order.
These are offered at my buy under $10 rule.
yes, as this had a clever opening that kept you glued to the story for quite time. This is a short listen, and on the order of Linda Howard's Cry No More, not to be missed. (Joyce Bean does a fab job on it and I have listened to it several times.)
I am a big fan of Ms Dawe. Her male and children's voices are my fave. See Julie Garwoods Sweet Talk, Tiffany Snow series she reads, yum, and Nora Roberts' the MacGregor series.
Note: I do use the new 1.25x speed so the dialogue matches the author's intent.
yes, and I did. The 4th book is by another reader, of which I own 2 books read by her. I will have to listen to what I own before purchasing #4. For me, it the reader, that makes the story.
