Now, Liz Shaler returns to Sun Valley as the crown jewel and keynote speaker for billionaire Patrick Cutter's world-famous C3, a media and communications conference where the richest, most powerful business tycoons converge. The attorney general, a political lightning rod, is expected to announce her candidacy for president. It's a media coup for Cutter - but a security nightmare for Walt Fleming, now the county sheriff.
As C3 gets under way, authorities learn of a confirmed threat on Shaler's life, and various competing interests - the Secret Service, the FBI, Cutter's own security forces - begin jockeying for jurisdiction. Beyond the logistical nightmare that the conference's opulent extravagances represent for Sheriff Fleming, he must also contend with a raft of other local concerns: his troubled nephew's arrest, his wife's infidelity, the death of a socialite under suspicious circumstances, and a series of apparent maulings by an aggressive cougar. Each of these incidents comes to a head just as Shaler's assassin puts his chillingly precise plan into action.

"Thanks to a spirited performance by Christopher Lane, here's a thriller you can finish in a weekend....listeners [will] appreciate Lane's deft manner, clear pronunciation, and much needed pauses between scenes." (AudioFile)
I enjoyed Ridley Pearson's new character and locale. The story kept me listening. I thoroughly enjoyed Christopher Lane's narration. The different nuanaces in his voice was just enough to differentiate the many characters. I would love to hear more Ridley Pearson books done by Christopher Lane.
The story was interesting, definitely not a waste of time however it could have been better.
Sun Valley, despite being a unique place full of character, was more of a after-thought rather than a character in the story. I was hoping for something more enthralling that would give me a feel for the place, rather than a few vague descriptions of places.
There were also too many predictable and cliched plot twists, the whole thing was a little light on substance.
The performance was good with extra embellishments like changing the tone of a voice heard over a phone or speaker. I have nothing but compliments for the performance.
I am not invested enough in the characters from Killer Weekend to pursue the follow-up books, at least not for now.
