A killer lurks in the shadows of Hyde Park, New York...waiting. Manhattan District Attorney, Lauren Taylor, is about to take on the most important case of her career, prosecuting Gino Valdina, acting mob boss of New York's most influential crime syndicate.
For three decades, Gino Valdina has led New York's Valdina crime family. Since his recent indictment for murder, the leadership of the family is in turmoil, appalled by the death of one of their own, Gino's wife, Madelina. Without the support of the family behind him, Valdina will do anything to save himself.
But Lauren soon discovers, things aren't always as they seem when she's tossed into a mystery, a deadly conspiracy that reaches far beyond the criminal underworld and a journey into the past makes her - and anyone she's ever loved - a target.

Well, I did not see that coming. Ended well, and backed up with lots of suspense and sexual tension. This book is the perfect length for a single sit listen or a long car ride. I would definitely give a listen to a follow up effort. Thank you Kim Cresswell and Rebecca Hansen for providing welcome entertainment with this free copy of Lethal Journey in exchange for this review.
Librarian with chronic migraines which cuts into reading a LOT so I listen and it is awesome for me keeps me in the blogging/reviewing game.
Lauren Taylor, Manhattan D.A., has lost everything. Prosecuting Gino Valdina has cost her everything she has held dear. Gino will do anything to save himself and so will Lauren, and Lauren is about to find out things are even more crazy than she thought, but she will find help in unexpected places.
This was a great action filled, suspenseful story. I love Ms. Cresswell's writing and have read/listened to many of her other books and enjoyed every one of them. I always feel as though I am part of the story, like I am right there with the person this time with Lauren, cheering and crying with her. I love the surprise twists they keep me on my toes. I had the audio narrated by Rebecca Hansen who has a way of differentiating the characters to make each one very different and stand out.
Right from the start the story action begins. A District Attorney who is trying to prosecute a Organized Crime figure that had been the nemesis of her father when he was the prosecutor. But the story keeps taking unlikely turns. Great action story and entertainment. Just ignore the rest.
I enjoyed the book from beginning to end. The character development was reasonably good and the plot was well done, and seemed realistic. I had some misgivings about the narrator but I got over them. I never saw the end plot coming so did enjoy it throughout.
