As the layers encasing the mystery unravel, old deceptions emerge with dangerous new consequences. Driven by his own fear that he may have overlooked something crucial during the investigation years ago - and worse yet, the possibility that he is responsible for the execution of an innocent man - Riley sifts through fifteen years of lies in order to uncover the truth. But what he discovers along the way is that the killer isn't the only one who wants to keep the past buried.

The story is lousy with hyperbole and premise that stretch the bounds of imagination. What got to me was the tedium, the endless explanations. I fell asleep far too often to rate this book any higher. Were it properly edited or the writer's style reasonably succinct, it may have had a chance.
Repeated, gratuitous descriptions of killing women, blood, guts, gore. Nasty stuff, again and again. Who do you think your audience is?
Bad for women. Bad for good men. Where is the outrage?
Sick of it.
I'm not really sure how to rate this read at this time because it is so confusing that I cant get throught the first half of the book. I have attempted to start/re-start the audio several times and...still no clarity.
Hopefully Mary Higgins Clark wont disappoint me!
his voice was fine...It's the confusing story line...maybe I'm to distracted.
This is the sixth David Ellis book I have listened to and as expected, the lawyer becomes a suspect and there is always a dysfunctional romance that distracts from a potentially great thriller/suspense novel. Dick Hill continues to be an excellent narrator which is the one asset that helped me get through this book. Time to move on to a new author.
