Mark and Maggie's annual drive east to visit family has gotten off to a rocky start. By the time they're on the road, it's late, a storm is brewing, and they are no longer speaking to one another. Adding to the stress, Maggie - recently mugged at gunpoint - is lately not herself, and Mark is at a loss about what to make of the stranger he calls his wife.
Forced to stop for the night at a remote inn, completely without power, Maggie's paranoia reaches an all-time and terrifying high. But when Mark finds himself threatened in a dark parking lot, it's Maggie who takes control.

I chose my overall rating as a combination of performance and of the story. The Narrator was GREAT! Inflection at the right points, etc. I was a very natural reading almost like watching a movie. This was excellent because it allowed me to hone in on the story and not be distracted by the reader. I'd love if you could select narrators for the books you buy because I'd likely pick this woman for everything!
The story it's self was good. Just good. This is likely my fault because I was under the impression it would be a full suspense novel. It's a 4/10 on the suspense level (I'm a fan of Jeff Menapace). The story had so much potential to be wickedly suspenseful but feel short. Seeming to more about the relationship of two people (two very plausible people) and nothing more than PG suspense. All in all, I would recommend it. The characters were believable and like able and while it wasn't the dark matter I was seeking its an easy and enjoyable read! Cheers!

No. Once was enough.
Eh, it wasn't terrible. I thought that certain parts of it were over explained and the action scenes gave me anxiety. I found my mind drifting to other places multiple times.
I have not, so I cannot say. I thought she did a good job.
A broken couple and their dog hit the road to visit family but accidentally venture down a dangerous path.
This book would have made a better short story. I'd take a red pen to at least 2/3 of it. That said, it was still better that half of the crap being published today.
The story was decent. Mood was ominous. Neither character was particularly likeable. More importantly, this book was way too expensive for a mere four plus hours worth of listening to a just decent story. At times the Reader's voice was too "throaty". MMS.
