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.

The Dick Hill reading of this mystery is so good that I hesitate to try an Ellis read by anyone else --- I'll just read another one. This is an unreliable narrator story. What is with our guy? And what is really going on here? There are more than one unreliable characters. Deceit occurs. The reading is so transparent I see all the characters and all the actions and never think of the words read. I loved it.
This book and narration is definitely one of the very best I've ever listened to! Worth every penny and every minute! A+++++++
Great story! Had me guessing right up till the end. At first I didn't like the spots where the reader sounded like he was in a long hall with all the echo but it helped draw a distinction between the present and a memory and made the flash backs easier to distinguish.
I haven't read the print version.
The plot had a lot of twists and turns and kept me interested from beginning to end!
I love Dick Hill's voice & his narration! Mr. Hill's voice is engaging, appealing and I very much enjoyed his narration. He wasn't bland and montotone sounding like other authors. I have actually returned many books strictly because I couldn't endure listening to the narrarator's voice. But Dick Hill brought the story and the characters to life and I could envsion this book as a movie playing in my mind as I listened to every scene. I am currently searching for other books with Dick Hill as the narrarator.
Great plot. Great narrarator. You won't be disappointed!
The main character is a moron. I could not get pass chapter 7.
The way that he fashioned his main character. The guy was so stupid. Most people know about electronic footprints and the way he keeps actiing like a little school girl.
Listening to his (he he) overactive voice drove me crazy.
The writing was stupid...Rachel...Rachel...Rachel....is this supposed to be an award winner. How depressing.
This book is a tough call. It was somewhat interesting, but felt weird all the way through it. It does have some twists at the end, but it is all muddled up. I would not listen to it again. You win some, you lose some, and some get rained out.
This started out very slow and I alost didn't finish listening to it. I decided to push through and it was worth it. It is one of the few mysteries that I didn't figure out half way through. The slow start may even have made it more exciting as I got more involved with the characters and the story. The narrator did a fabulous job and I am looking forward to another story from the same author and narrator. They are a great pairing.
