Publisher's Summary

Marty Kalish is a young man suffocating in the heat of an affair with a married woman named Rachel. When Rachel's husband disappears one night, Marty is one of the first to be questioned. With few likely suspects, the police arrest him for murder.

We know Marty was outside their home that night. We know he has a motive. We know he's guilty of something. But is it murder?

Everything we learn - about Marty as a man, his affair with Rachel, and the night in question - comes from Marty himself. We want him to be innocent, but the more he tells us, the more we fear he is guilty. And as the twists and turns of the plot unfold, we can't be completely sure.

    "Review"

    Don't love, don't hate. Won't remember. What I did find annoying was the reader reading a "stage" direction and then doing it. Eg. Read: "he sighed", then actually sighing. One of the other - not sure if it is the reader or the director's fault but it was really irritating.

    "WOW!"

    I thought I had this solved several times. No. Well written and perfectly performed!! I love Dick Hill! It was one of those I finished in a few days. I'll look for more by this author.

    Story
    "Gripping and Authentic Legal Thriller"
    Where does Line of Vision rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?

    In the top 20


    What did you like best about this story?

    The character development is impressive, and the legal maneuvering plausible and well-crafted. The frequent flashbacks are deftly handled, elucidating rather than distracting.


    What about Dick Hill’s performance did you like?

    In a word, perfect.


    Was there a moment in the book that particularly moved you?

    Not really a particular moment.


    Any additional comments?

    Without any apparent pretension, at its best, the story the story has echoes of Crime and Punishment.

    If you could sum up Line of Vision in three words, what would they be?

    How do authors know these things?

    Can't think of anything I've read like it


    What about Dick Hill’s performance did you like?

    Very well done


    Any additional comments?

    Couldn't stop listening to it, it puts you in the head of a possible killer and walks you through the experience and trial.

    Love to walk and listen. Commute and listen. I typically enjoy well developed characters mixed with a good mystery.

    Story
    "Painful. I couldn't wait for it to end."
    This book wasn’t for you, but who do you think might enjoy it more?

    Honestly, I have no idea.


    What do you think your next listen will be?

    A classic.


    What didn’t you like about Dick Hill’s performance?

    His voice is not universal. It works for the Jack Reacher character since he is an anti hero. For this book, it didn't. It came across as over dramatic in many areas.


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

    The court room portion was actually the best thing about the book. Because there was really no focused character development,when we got to the courtroom scenes it felt like most of the book was a waist of time.


    Any additional comments?

    The main character constantly speaking in 3rd person was exhausting and at times confusing. I think that the mystery could have been much better had we cared a little more about the characters. Unfortunately, the outcome ended a bit somber because of that.

    Love a good mystery, but don't care much for pure thrillers.

    "Terrible plot and sick character"

    This story is completely contrived, but I will try not to give anything away in my criticism. It is told in first person. Even though it is written as if he is revealing his inner thoughts, pertinent facts that the protagonist has and actions that he took are deliberately withheld from the reader. It isn't for lack of space; the protagonist's vicarious, sick fantasies are indulged time and again. The many twists toward the end are ridiculous and could be discovered by competent detectives. Further, even while charged with first degree murder, the guy isn't in jail or monitored, but is free to roam and create more mischief. If you appreciate Hannibal Lecter, you may like this story. The superficial self-analysis toward the end is pure Freudian--when all else fails, blame your parents! The polarization among reviewers shows that there is no accounting for taste. The narrator does the best he can with this flawed script; it isn't his fault.

    "Another Excellent Ellis Story"

    Love this writer. He takes the time to develop characters and interesting story lines that seem to naturally work themselves out instead of a sudden stop and they lived happily ever after ending. Most authors now write short 200 page novels that don't have time to develop. Not this one. I'm really loving "listening" to all his books.
