Publisher's Summary

Some secrets need to be told....

Still reeling from her mother's recent death, Karen Whitlaw is stunned when she receives a package containing a mysterious notebook from her estranged father, whom she has barely seen since his return from the Vietnam War decades ago. Then, a shocking phone call: Karen's father has been murdered on the gritty streets of New Orleans.

Even if they lead to murder....

For homicide detective Marc Chastain, something about the case of a murdered homeless man just doesn't add up - especially after he meets the victim's daughter. Far from the cold woman he expected, Karen Whitlaw is warm and passionate. She is also in serious danger. A string of "accidents" have shaken Karen to the core, and forced her into the protective embrace of the charming detective she vowed to resist. Together, they unravel a disturbing story of politics, power, and murder - and face a killer who will stop at nothing to get his hands on her father's secrets.

    "Good book, not great, but good"
    Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?

    I would recommend this book for someone who is looking for a mindless pleasure, nothing too heavy.


    Did the plot keep you on the edge of your seat? How?

    The story was fairly good. I thought the characters behavior & motivation was a bit questionable at times but it did not detract too much from the overall story line. The mystery wasn't very complex & the ending was a little abrupt, but overall it was an interesting premise. I have enjoyed all of Linda Howard's books I have read, and although this one was not my favorite, I did enjoy listening to it.

    If you could sum up Kill and Tell in three words, what would they be?

    The plot was never ending! A lot of twists and turns. Great ending!

    The dialog and charactors made me laugh. I thoroughly enjoyed the story unfolding.

    Story
    "Give it a rest"
    What would have made Kill and Tell better?

    Focus on the story. If you deleted the scenes where they are having sex, thinking about when they had sex, planning to have sex, there would be about 10 pages in the whole book.


    What do you think your next listen will be?

    Dean Koontz


    Would you listen to another book narrated by Natalie Ross?

    Yes


    You didn’t love this book... but did it have any redeeming qualities?

    Could have been an exciting story

    "Good Book, Okay Narration"

    This book probably would have been a better listen with a less-perky narration. Natalie Ross did a great job on distingishing the characters, but the story narration was too brightly monotone. It made it hard to be intrigued by the storyline.

    Story
    "Great read.."
    If you could sum up Kill and Tell in three words, what would they be?

    Murder, romance, sex..


    Who was your favorite character and why?

    Marc. Becuase the narrator gave him a sexy-as-hell Naw'lins accent.


    What about Natalie Ross’s performance did you like?

    Everything. Each character was perfectly done.


    Any additional comments?

    I was a little concerned that this was going to be too much romance and not enough mystery and murder but once the romance was introduced, when the first murder was commited, the book ran along just fine. I did love Marc and Karen. Hated ALL the bad guys so now I'm going to
    read & listen to John Medina's story. I hope it has the same narrator because she was phenomenal.

    "A ROMANCE NOVEL, A POOR ONE AT THAT!"

    The premise is not bad, others have thought so and used it successfully, many times. This book seems to have been written by a love sick teenage girl. I could scarcely get through half of it for all the sappy, romantic nonsense. If it is in this category it should be a mystery and/or thriller. It is neither. The only mystery about it is how in the world it got published! I would have given it a "no star" rating but it seems audible does not allow such behavior.
